Grand Theft Auto Old Series Remasters- a possibility?

I would love to see remastered versions of the GTAIII, Vice City, San Andreas, and IV like we got with GTA V. Especially Vice City, most fun I've ever had playing a video game (mostly due to the setting and soundtrack). I was wondering if since they did remaster of V for XB-1 and PS4 if there is a possibility they might do the same for the others? I would be willing to pay top $$ for Vice City and San Anreas. I am just wondering if that means they will have to pay extra to the voice talent they hired for them (which were name celebrities).

Highly doubt it since they already released the old trilogy with trophies on the PS4.

GTA V is less a remaster and more the finished version of the game. The old console versions have been left behind while the PS4/XBONE/PC versions continue to get updates and added features.

Jesus. Why would you want a remaster of those big 3 NOW? That could have been a last gen thing. Not now. Those games are 2 generations old now. GTA3 s 15 years old now.

IV... would probably look uglier now than it was at that time.

GTA IV and V were basically remakes of GTA III and San Andreas (sandbox worlds anyway), so i don't see the point.

I'd love to see a remaster of IV just because I prefer the New York setting to the LA setting for random shenanigans.

Honestly, I'm done with remasters of old games and would like to see dev studios spending more time and resources making new games.

I would like Vice City, but it would have to be a full blown remake, not a remaster.

Yeah. a remake of VC would be one whole other thing. Fuck remasters of those games mentioned though.

Even w/ a remake of VC... I don't think it'd work. There's a whole style to it that fits the era release and etc. Wouldn't be the same. Would be even worse as a remaster. The controls... that would not be ok today.
