The Evolution of Grand Theft Auto

"As we near Grand Theft Auto V’s launch, anticipation is starting to hit a fever pitch. How many other games do you know that can cause crowds to gather as the official box art is painted on the side of a building?" - Joe Garcia (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is one of the best video game series I have ever had the joy to experience. The living, breathing worlds created by Rockstar's masterful designers is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

I still play the older GRAND THEFT AUTO games to this day, the series' heritage is brilliant too. Vice City, San Andreas, III; all of which are fantastic games that truly deserve a place in one of gaming's most renowned franchises.

Grand theft auto, here is to your inevitably bright future.
Roll on GRAND THEFT AUTO: V, thankyou, Rockstar Games.

Agreed - can't wait for GTA V. I do hope they've got some tricks up their sleeve in terms of new ways to play. My one complaint about GTA IV was the somewhat tedious mission structure at times.

I prefer the somewhat new direction Rockstar has taken with the GTA series this gen. Last gen with San Andreas, GTA was the jack of all trades but master of none. It tried to do everything and pack in as many features and side activities as possible. While this gave players a ton of stuff to do, the quality was very inconsistent and a lot just felt like filler.

With GTA IV, they took a slightly more narrow focus, but pushed everything to perfection. There is consistent quality across the board. Everything about GTA IV just oozes with quality, from the beautifully detailed city to the superb physics engine, the superior storytelling and cinematic approach. Everything is incredibly polished and the presentation values are through the roof.

Now if GTA V can pack in the large number of features and diverse world of San Andreas, with the sheer detail and consistent quality of GTA IV, this could be one of the greatest games of all time. What a feat that would be, and Rockstar has had 5 years since the last major release to pull it off.

I'm excited for this one, had a difficult time getting into GTA IV. I didn't like the protagonist, felt like I was playing Grand Theft Borat.

I agree with you on that one. He was just a little bit too goofy.
