10 Years Later: Memories of Grand Theft Auto III

The term revolutionary is often cheaply thrown around, but Grand Theft Auto III personified the word.There was nothing like Grand Theft Auto III. The game released exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 2 on Oct. 22, 2001. At the time I had no idea what terms like “sandbox” or “open world” meant for gaming. I wasn’t even old enough to “legally” purchase the game (as if I was buying something hazardous to my health like booze or cigarettes). As I transitioned from using the PlayStation and Nintendo 64, Grand Theft Auto III was jaw-dropping. (Grand Theft Auto III, Industry, PS2, Xbox)
