WLarimer asks:
I just got Grand Thef Auto and GTA: Vice City for my PC. I've never played the console versions of either.

So far, using the keyboard to drive is a bit of a challenge. Any thoughts on the best type of controller to use?

I would recommend getting used to the keyboard. After about an hour, maybe two, I was able to get good "touch" control with the keyboard. I found that tapping the keys worked fine and I seem to have the same, or better, control on my PC with the keyboard as my friends get with the PS2 controller setup.

A word of warning, I have played a lot of first-person-shooters with the WASD control and I think my dexterity on those keys is much higher than average (compared to non-gamers). If you've played your share of FPS with the keyboard-mouse combo, GTAIII on a keyboard should feel natural to you in short time.
