A game that thought IN-side the box....that is the sandbox.

I remember when I first played the original one for the PSX. I didn't like it that much compared to when I first held my hands on the PS2 GTA3 but it was quite unique in its time.

The Grand Theft Auto series is what brought videogames to the mainstream. It’s a bold claim, albeit one that’s undeniably true.

Uhh... and here I thought it was Pac-Man. He was on the cover of Time, a much bigger magazine than The Face.

How bout Mario...everyone knows Mario.

Doesnt everyone knowing Mario make the series mainstream?
Maybe you're looking at it in a diffrent light than i am.

gta didn't put gaming in the mainstream.. it brought controversy to gaming to the mainstream... mario would be the first one to bring it to the mainstream.

I can still remember playing GTA, GTA2 and London edition on PS1. I loved those games! Funny thing is, that my brother saw potential but wasn't interested in them. He said "They should make them in 3-D." This was way before GTA 3 was even announced.

Enter 2001. GTA3 was announced at E3...but mostly everyone was anticipating Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Solid 2 and Final Fantasy 10. I was one of those people that were waiting for those 3 AAA games. My brother on the other hand, couldn't wait for GTA 3. He knew it was going to be big and after playing it for the first time the Friday it came out...I knew that it would be one of the biggest and best games of all time. Truly a classic game.

I love the GTA series and will continue to support it. Why? Because Rockstar ALWAYS deliver! I've never been disappointed with any GTA game so far.

The first title in the GTA series was released for DOS, Microsoft Windows and PlayStation in 1997/1998, but you have to pick Playstation first because it's our GOD. Deal with it!!! Please don't try to reveal something not important to PS Fans on this site. Playstation is only worth of conversation. PERIOD.

yes but Playstation helped make it into what it is today. It took off on the Playstation.
