Love it or hate it, the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series has revolutionised gaming. The 2D versions of GTA showed us that there was more to games than the standard genres, and the novel alignment as an antithesis to the usual save-the-world mentality we had in most games. Ethically you could argue it wasn't the best game, but it sure was fun sliding your 'Cossie' or 'Beast GTS' through a line of Harry Krishna's. Then along came GTA 3. In full 3D the game was so vivid, there was three cities to explore, and it was on a mainstream console, namely the Playstation 2.
Saints Row has taken inspiration from GTA and improved upon it, so click the link below for the full preview.
