It FEELS like it was a LOT longer ago, like the early 90s, but I guess it must have been in 2000 that my younger brother acquired a copy of GTA2. Maaan, I still cannot believe gfx have come so far in less than a decade, but at the time, this little guy running around like a freak, having to balance the three gang's attitude toward you, and the bl00dy police were a major pain in the a$$, from whom it was almost impossible to escape. The rampages, the sheer glee of flinging molotovs off the balcony walkways and watching traffic chaos, or firing rockets into pursuing police. And Gouranga! Classic sh!t!!! I thought, who comes up with this??
However, though I loved it, I sucked a little at it. (To this day, I still haven't beaten it.) Which means I was still a Civ-head, and a fan of Baldur's gate and a few other games.
So, couple o years later, brother and I are walking through Myers in Melbourne and there's this game there, Grand Theft Auto III. He instantly wants to buy it. I'm a little retiscent. I still haven't beaten 2, and now this one's 3d and I'll suck at it ... wah wah wah. But we buy it, and he's barely played it, and I've bought everything R* have made ever since (for PC or PS2, that is).
Still cannot believe it's been less than ten years. Feels like I've been playing one GTA or another for a couple o decades. How the shiznit did I EVER occupy myself before 2000?
Sidebar: The GTA2 radio stations didn't work (*cough* ), so when III came out, I thought the radio idea was the shiznit!

|My dad brought home a demo of GTA1 (PC) shortly after it was released, and then I got the full game a few weeks later. I was 8 at the time! Thanks Dad. |
Still got the original box, though it's not in the greatest condition:

|It's quite interesting to see how many people started playing Grand Theft Auto with III/VC/SA. I guess us people who've been playing GTA since 1997 are in the minority.|
I noticed that too, I played first GTA in 1997 though, it was so awesome, still love that game

I thought the game would be too hard so I bought 3+ and 7+ games.
I saw someone playing San Andreas at a friends house once, I was amazed at how fun the game was but I never thought much of it later on.
The addiction began later with the purchase of GTA:LCS with my PSP, (by then I understood the epicness of the gta series).
However, I was mostly addicted with IV (and still am lol)
