I never thought of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to have a violent impact on kids. I heard about some kids killing because of the game but thatís the parentís fault for giving it to them when it says 18+ on the cover. I mean itís not like you can sue the Porn Industry because you gave in to your kids begging for porn then getting their girlfriend pregnant, right!?
Well, anywayÖ Iím 24 and my boyfriend and I have been playing GTA:ViceCity for a while now and right when we finished a load of plots, missions and buying a lot of realty, the game wouldnít load our saved spot one day. We took it to another system w/another GTA:ViceCity game and still the same problem.
WE HAD TO START ALL OVER! *GULP!*
So we did. A NEW memory cartridge, and a new saved spot. After we finished some missions and all the delivery missions the F**KING GAME FROZE! And it keeps on freezing since, saying ďLOADINGĒ
WE HAD TO START ALL OVER AGAIN! *GULP!*
This time we didnít even use any cheat codes to prevent tragedy!! And NOTHING like this is written anywhere on GameFaqs. I had many incidents in the past with other games but accidentally knocking over the console to the ground or tripping over the cord erasing gamesÖ but this is ridiculous!! So, this morning I start up the gameÖ the saved game on the memory cartridge is erased!
Now, I can assure you that if there is any violence from this game, itís due to this!
Can anyone shed some light on the subjectÖ or perhaps I am not alone.
Well, since your using a memory card I'm assuming your playing the PS2 version?
Make sure the memory card is a Sony official memory card, and not a third party one. Even though the third party ones are cheaper, they usually cause problems.
If your having problems with all memory cards on your PS2 system, and you don't want to pay to check it out, go ahead an open up the PS2 and clean the memory card slots. I think techtv or x-play (http://www.techtv.com/xplay) has some tutorials on how to do that, if not, just google "opening your PS2" and some things should come up.
Remember though, that opening the PS2 voids your warranty.
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who know binary, and those who don't.
If you are saving at the ice cream place, that's your problem. Due to some bad coding that was not cleaned up prior to release all the saves at the ice cream factory are corrupt. If that's not where you are, King Kyle's advice might work.
There might be other spots in the game that are like the Ice Cream place where saving there might destroy your game. My advice is to save your game in two slots, alternating each time you save. This way, if you do save in a bad place, you'll have a recent back-up you can load, and you'll only be behind by a mission or so. And you'll know not to save in that place again.

To be fair though, I knew what I was looking for...

I just finished a week's worth of playing that game(had to return it, doh!) and I have to admit that I am addicted.
So me and my girl were out to eat one evening when I look over and see a couple cops eating dinner and I whisper to her, "I have this urge to grab that cop's baton and start whacking him with it," ya know, like in the game...? and we just laughed about it. Needless to say it went away but...
I kind of see how kids can imitate that if they don't think before they act.
I've got your back on that. When I was having 3 hour sessions a day with that game when it came out, I had this urge to hijack 18 wheelers I stop behind at red lights and ram cars head on in the wrong side of the road...
I;ve had that happen on the PC version of GTA3, probably becuase i just added a load of mods. On the PS2 ver of Vice City every so often its says 'Error reading the DVD', yeat I can't see a scratch on it.
My wife and I play though Vice City from time to time. She doesn't like to play but she likes to tell me what to do with the character, like pick up the hooker here and kill her there. The 80s music is the best, and I keep trying to find more 80s songs to put into the hard drive to listen to in the game. Every time I hear 80s music now, I associate it to Vice City, especially when I hear it on my real car radio when we are driving down the highway. I have a slight urge to crash into other cars. Same thing applied when I first played Crazy Taxi.

A real conversation between my drunk friend and a girl he was trying to pick up at New Year's 2003...
Guy: (yawn) Girl: Tired? Guy: Yeah, I've had a long day. I had to do some chores, then I went by this strip club I own... Girl: You own a strip club? Guy (after a confused pause): Oh, wait, no, sorry, I just confused my life with that of Vice City.
Cut to me on the couch, also a wee bit drunk, laughing hysterically.

Well now, my favorite thing to do in Vice City is a "Ted Kennedy".
See, I pick up some hooker off the street, then drive real fast over a bridge and bail out of the car just before it drives off the bridge and plunges into the water below ...thus killing the poor broad.
Ah yes, I call it doing a "Ted Kennedy".
Like my daddy alway's said: if you can't get in the front door, just go around to the back.
I had the same problem with my Timesplitters 2 save for PS2 - I got most of the way through the game, did a bunch of those challenges that make you want to rip your hair out, and then my file got corrupted. I was sooooo pissed.

Gamespot has an interesting article up reviewing real life as though it were a MMOG. I don't know if their evaluation of race is appropriate, but for the most part its a cute look at what some gamers might be missing out on.
