GTA 1 to GTA V: The History of Grand Theft Auto, How "Sam and Dan Houser" Started Their Journey

A look at the history of this beautiful franchise (Grand Theft Auto) from the creators beginnings to today.

Sam, born in 1971, and Dan Houser, born in 1974, were both born in London and the children of divorce lawyer Walter Houser and actress Geraldine Moffat. They were fascinated with American culture and video games while growing up, and went to St Paul's School in London and Oxford University and University of London. Sam eventually got a job at BMG and then BMG Interactive, BMG's technology and video game division. He met Jamie King while working there. The company published a few games, but they weren't the games he wanted. Then one day, Dave Jones of DMA Design stopped by looking for a publisher for a game called Race 'n' Chase. (Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)
