For many people, GTA 4 was the first GTA game they have played. But for many people (especially people on this website) its not. tounge2.gif lol

My story:
The first time I saw a GTA game was when my brother was playing in on his computer. At the time I didnt understand the concept of the game and didnt care about it. But it was when Vice city came out, that I understood what this series was about. Ever since The release date of GTA Vice City I have become a GTA addict. inlove.gif

so whats your story on how you discovered GTA?

One day my friend brought over GTA vice city, we played it together for awhile......and then I didn't play one for years.

Then another friend living nearby had Gta SA, for the xbox, he let me borrow it for awhile, I played for a bit.

Then I got a playstation2, I got vice city, religiously did the hotring as many times as possible.

I would say Vice City was my first True Gta played, but I actually played SA seriously first..........

I first played GTA3 on the PS2, it was the first game I bought for it. It was awesome, but I didn't have a memory card so it took me a while to beat the game.

The first GTA I ever played was San Andreas. One day my cousin brought the PS2 version over and we played 2 player on it for about 6 hours blush.gif . After that I didn't play it for about a year until my best friend and I played SA for a couple hours. That was when I fell in love with GTA and I bought SA for myself and the rest is history smile.gif .

I forgot if i was 10 or 11 i went to the game store and saw a cool looking game called GTAVC. I asked my mom if we could buy it and she did (not knowing what it was). I went home and got instantly hooked into the GTA series.

I was much younger, and two of my cousins were playing GTA1 on their playstation 1. It had just been released here. The next day I got it myself, and ever since I've been playing the GTA games!

I was 7, and I went to my friends house, and I was looking through his games, and randomly picked GTA III.

I always dreamed of a game where you can do whatever you want. And finally, discovered GTA III.

Since I saw that guy like once every two months, I only played it once every two months, so it was hard to get bored of it. Finally in 2002 I got a PS2, and in 2003 I got GTA III

I first discovered GTA on the PSone, with the original Grand Theft Auto game (GOURANGA!). A friend had bought the console and some games, and was hooked on the GTA game particularly. I began playing it too, had never seen anything like it. After that, I bought and played the whole series, right up to today, where I am hooked on GTAIV. But I only managed to catch all the Elvises together once on GTA2! (uh-huh-huh). cool.gif

I first started playing this series with GTA 1 back in the day and later GTA 2. After that I played other games for some years and then discovered Vice City and was struck by how awesome it was (3D!). After that I got GTA 3 and later San Andreas when it was released.

They were funny! You will remember, you just heard, out of nowhere, "uh-huh-huh" in the manner of Elvis and then had to frantically look for them in a group. When I eventually managed to mow them all down in one go and it came up with "ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING", I leapt out the chair and cheered. But never managed to get them like that again. cool.gif

First time was in 2002 when my neighbor and me played GTA III at his house. Then my neighbor bought GTA Vice City a couple of weeks later. However, it was not until 2004 when GTA San Andreas was released that I bought the games myself.

Awh. I'd buy that. But i guess you'll never want to get rid of it. Hah.



I first played GTA 1 when my family was at our familyfriends (you know, a whole family that is your whole familys friend), and the kid in their family and i was playing GTA 1 on his playstation one. Oh that was beutiful. Loved it.

I remember the broken bridge we were trying to jump over. I don't think this was to long after it's the release of the game. But i only played it a couple of hours then, and then some month later when i were at his place again. Then it was quite quiet, or at least so i remember. It was such a long time ago so i can't remember. Anywho, then after i got my Playstation 1, sometime i found in a store, or i found it and asked my dad or mom to buy it for me, GTA 2. I thought it was the same game, or sort of at least. Well, that's where my real GTA-geekism started. I remember the days where we could be three or four guys in my room (including my self) just wrecking a havok in Anywhere City. Trying to blow up the most amount of cars simultaneously etc, until we died and then switched player.

And the wonderfull time i had, when i could play for an hour just letting my friends watch. Ah. Egoistic times. inlove.gif

Oh well. So that's how i started of i think.

Edit: I was about 6 or 7 years old at the time.

So many of us have started playing the GTA series from an early age. I wonder how many of us out there have turned into serial killers because of it? tounge2.gif

I remember the first GTA game I saw was the first at a friends house on the PS1 but we were more into Spec Ops at the time. The first time I really took notice of the franchise was when Vice City was released and a friend had it and I thought it was amazing, I'd never seen a game where you could control the environment around you to such an extent. So I bought the game, then San Andreas, Vice City Stories, borrowed Liberty City Stories and now GTAIV. But I'll never forget playing Vice City for the first time, it blew my mind, at the age of 11 or something confused.gif

I was 12 and I was over my friend's aunt's house and my friend asked if I wanted to play Grand Theft Auto 3, but I wasn't paying attention to what he was saying because I was talking to his cousin, so I said, ''Psh, that game is whack''. At the time I thought he said Gran Turismo 3 (I hated racing games at the time). So after I was bored being upstairs I went downstairs to give in to the boring racing game and then I saw my friend playing GTA 3. I saw Claude beating the hell out of people and shooting people, I was in love inlove.gif . Because of my foolish thought that he meant GT3 instead of GTA3, I only had 10 minutes to shoot Triads and kick peds. sad.gif . After that, I couldn't stop thinking about the game as we went back to New York City. I never got to play GTA again until Vice City came out.

I first heard about GTA when the media was talking about evil it was (vice city was just about to be released) so when VC came out I immediatley went and picked it up. devil.gif Gotta thank the media for that one.

After that I went back and got part III just to catch up. Didn't play the first two as I freakin HATE top down view games.

Had every GTA that's come out on the systems (not handhelds) since.

My cousin brought GTA III over on my PS2 when I was 6 and I quickly became an addict. I got the game when I was 7 and have been playing GTA ever since.

The first GTA I discovered and played was Vice city.I was pretty young, and was visiting my -I sh*t you not here- my Grandma's house, and she had recently bought an X-box. I was looking through her games, found Vice City, asked if I could play it, and she said that I could. Been in love with the series ever since.
