Guns, tunes and 'Grand Theft Auto': a history of violence

Ok, let's just put this on the record right now: Rockstar Games in no way, shape or form invented open world gaming. According to Wikipedia, that honor goes to some space game you've never heard of. Heck, Rockstar wasn't even the first person to go with 3D graphics. If you want the genius behind that, you're talking about some other game no one has ever heard of.

And yet, Rockstar's juggernaut still endures. No, "endures" isn't the right word. "Endures" implies that it releases and does respectably despite not being anything new or exciting. "Grand Theft Auto" doesn't endure, "Dragon Age" endures.

"Grand Theft Auto" dominates. (Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto II, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, PS3, Xbox 360)
