With newfound rumors as originally reported by Kotaku of Rockstar Games planning for all current platforms, a trio of GTA remasters, including Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it only makes sense to think about what improvements the developer could add to make these great open-world action games even better.
Returning to GTA III, Vice City, or San Andreas after playing GTA IV and especially V (which by the way, the latter is still coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X and S) might make for a rude awakening for many players used to the more refined control schemes of modern GTA when compared to the PS2 games. Understandably so, of course.
Thus, it would most likely behoove Rockstar Games to improve upon some of the less-than-perfect controls of the PS2 GTA games. No doubt more unified controls across all three games would be ideal.
Furthermore, improvements especially to the aiming and shooting mechanics would make for a better remaster of these games as well. Lock-on can stay, of course, but the ability to better free-aim your guns would make for a more optimal (see: less agonizing and annoying) experience.
Making the controls of the remastered GTA games more akin to those seen in GTA IV and V brings with it not just familiarity but would make for a better gameplay experience overall.
