I Just Noticed the 'Grand Theft Auto' Box Art Similarities...

Anthony Accinelli of RealSG.com has created an image showing the similarities in the Grand Theft Auto box art throughout the years. Helicopters? Check. Hot girls? Check. Same placement?! Check! (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I always thought they were random haha. Nice catch.

What the? There is no similarities there all random, this article states that there's always a sexy female to the left, 3 lcs and Vcs don't have that, a man with a gun got the right is not in all of them. The bikes and the helicopters are there tho

I think the point is; it happens regularly.
E.g.) There is ALWAYS a Helicopter in the top left however the rest differs a bit however there tends to be a motorbike top right.

With the sexy female, lay aside Vice City STORIES, Liberty City STORIES, the last 3 GTA's (IV, SA, VC) have a sexy female at the left mid and of course GTA V. These four have more similarities if you look carefully.

GTA III is odd, very different from the other GTA's.

you can't have similarities when there are inconsistencies. Only things parallel with each other are the helicopter and bike placements.

I never noticed the helicopter always being in the upper left...hmm

And why is this 'news?'
Head over to the GRAND THEFT AUTO Forums if you want to share this, something like this belongs there.

What's the issue here Cammy?

It's just someone having a little fun.

I prefer this to the constant torrent of "X" is doomed articles.

I'm sorry if you are having a bad day.... :/

The helicopter in the top left box has always been tradition. Of the modern era GTAs, only the Chinatown Wars boxart does not have it there:

Exactly, a guy on Reddit made this. He should be getting credit.

Kind of Trollific of R* if you think about it. They got us good.

I wish they replaced the helicopter with the jet.

"There's always a helicopter. Always a city. Always a fast car."

Sorry, too much Bioshock Infinite

You've just noticed them?! Well, others knew it years ago, but still good, cause obviously not everyone was aware of it and the GTA covers are always really cool.

They don't all have bikes to the upper right nor sexy females to the left so this analysis, whilst true in most cases, is still a bit half baked.

The fact that they all have this comic book 'stained glass' style front is so consistent that it's no surprise if several other things within the panels are too.

On a related note, what about how the art style for the Kane and Lynch cover seems to mimic that of the earlier Max Payne 2?:

Well if you have a winning formula...

Vice City box is still my favorite, just looking at the text brings back soooooooo many memories.
claud3  +   849d ago
Why is this even a big deal... It has been this way for a while and that is a winner for us and R*

By far game of the year

Wow, look at all the comments. Slow news day?

A Rockstar Exec could post a photo of his most recent dump and you guys would probably be picking nuggets of corn out of it for days wondering what it all means.

Is this getting ridiculous yet??
