History of GTA

x360a posted a article earlier with a brief history of GTA that UK newspaper The Guardian made. I watched it and thought it was a little short, so I went looking and found the below.

This one is around 50 minutes long and is just perfect to sit and watch and help pass that extra time before the game arrives at your front door. Enjoy.

Only GTA games I've played is Vice City, Liberty City Stories both on PS2 & a lot of IV. Wish I played San Andreas but at this point, there's no point..but looks like I've missed out.

What... Both of you need a clip around the ear, I tell ya! You're so hyped for a game where you have only played a grain of sand from a desert full greatness.

I'm going to go scream into a pillow now.

I'm tell you that you need to play them! GTA/2 are free for PC download off R*s site. Plus the others you can get for cheap on PC or even on your phone (don't do that though).

These games are what made the one you're playing tomorrow. Sad to see people missing out on a great gaming history.

Best part me me while watching that video was I recognised every bit and where the player was on the map. These games are over 10yrs old!

Brought me back watching that man, even though it was a pain in the arse to drive I miss the top down camera, anyone know if they brought it back as a nostalgia option?
Think it was last in GTA 3

I feel ashamed, but it's ok to start late. I was about 12 when I played Vice City anyway lol.

I'd seriously recommend everyone to play older GTA games. You might think that gameplay in these games is terribly outdated, but it's really not. I played through SA and VC just last summer and they both were a lot of fun. San Andreas and especially Vice City are my favourites from 3d era. Heck, VC is probably my favourite in the series.

Also, here's another video about GTA's history: http://www.gametrailers.com/full-epi...ete-collection It probably covers much of same stuff. But it's better than waiting doing nothing, right?

Just watched the first 6 mins, lovely memories of GTA 1.

I started on the PC with GTA 1 and 2 with it's birds eye view! How things have changed.
