I remember when my Dad and I finished it. All the years gone past, he still brings up the character Uncle Fuji and the jobs he assigned you to do.
I don't think I heard about 2 and moved onto III but eventually I did play it and enjoyed it.

| Funny you should mention where you began to play GTA, because I pondered on that question about a week ago.|
Anyway, here is when I bought each game (by year). They are all 100% accurate, except GTA: London 1969:
GTA 1 - 1997
GTA: London 1969 - 1999 or 2000
GTA: London 1961 - 2000
GTA 2 - Late 2000 (Around November or December)
GTA III - 2001
GTA: Vice City - 2002
GTA: San Andreas - 2004 (I believe the first or second day on the shelves)
GTA: Advance - 2004
GTA: Liberty City Stories - 2005
GTA: Vice City Stories - 2006
GTA IV - 2008 (Definitely the first day)
GTA TLAD and TBoGT - 2010 (Both on the EFLC)
GTA Chinatown Wars - 2010
GTA 1 was my first as well. played it first at a friends house freshman year of high school.
GTA 1 & 2: got for Christmas 1999 (both for PC)
GTA London 1969: 2004 or so for PSX, with the GTA collector's edition
GTA London 1961: 2006 I think... I actually had to buy the PC version of 1969 to play it. I played one mission and gave up. That games so hard!
GTA LCS: got for Christmas 2005 along with the PSP.
All other GTA games were purchased the day they came out or the night before:
GTA III 2001
Vice City 2002
San Andreas 2004
GTA Advance (online preorder) 2004
GTA IV (online preorder) 2008
Chinatown Wars 2009
have GTA V pre-ordered at Gamestop.

It wasn't until after I played GTA III for the first time when my mum bought GTA 1 on my PS1 (before I owned a PS2 I think). Had lots of fun with it until my dad snapped the disc right in front of my eyes not only because I was over 10 years under the age restriction but for also jumping on front of a guy's moving car (imitating what you could do in-game). I have no idea how that guy informed my dad, but I also remember him calling me a "little rat".
It wasn't until I was 14 or 15 when I was allowed to own GTA games again, apart from a time when me (age 11) and my brother got GTA Double Pack on the XBOX until it was sold back as punishment for me saying "kiss my ass" in school.

I used to look on the net at GTA London but was never able to buy it in South Africa sadly. I went on to buy GTA 2 as it was released in 1999. My love for the game carried on with GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas. Vice City is bar none my favourite GTA of the III era (and probably in general), but that's not to say I didn't love III and SA. I then bought LCS and VCS on PS2 and obviously GTA IV and EFLC on release.

My favourite was Vice City. It was so much fun to play and Rockstar really captured the whole Miami/beach atmosphere perfectly.
Anway the best is yet to come - roll on GTA V!

Impressive for those who have been on board since the beginning. Playing 1 fifteen years ago, I'm sure you couldn't have expected it to turn into what it has.
Posted 07 September 2013 - 10:01 AM
Yup I did. I use to go round my friends everyday to play it on their pc.I had no PC. I was overjoyed when it came out on the PS1 i got the magazine with the preview, and remember looking at the pics everyday till i got the game on release day. I was 10 years old and have been a major fan ever since! If memory serves right i remember one thing different about the ps version and the PC version was you couldnt hijack the train. It looks like that is making a return in V. Hasnt been possible since GTA 1 on PC.

GTA 1 was the first one I played. I played it at a friend's house on ps1 back in '97 or '98.
Didn't really become a fan of the series until GTA III though.

I remember being about four or five at the time. My parents were separated and I'd spend a few days with my dad occasionally. He was into video-gaming and such. This was back when the PS1 was out. My dad had bought a chipped PS1 with a whole stack of games: Apocalypse, Crash Bandicoot, Resident Evil 1 (It'd been released a few months earlier) and many others. He asked me if I wanted to try out Grand Theft Auto, "it's a driving game," he said. He flicked it on and I just drove around for a while.
Couple of months later my cousin got a bunch of emulators on his old PC, Snes, Genesis, etcetera etcetera. He had Grand Theft Auto and I played it again. Loved it since the first time I played and was hooked on GTA right up until four or five years later when III was released. Probably one of the only ways I bonded with my father.

My first contact with GTA was back in 1997 when i was 12, i played a demo that only allowed you to play for a few minutes, it came in one of those magazines that included cd's with a bunch of demos that were so popular at the time.
I got hooked and soon after that bought the full game, then got london, then GTA 2, GTA 3, Vice city, SA, IV, and so on...
Posted 12 September 2013 - 02:39 AM
I never liked video games that much at the time of GTA 1. It wasn't until Vice City i bought a PS2 but since then I have played every game in the series.
Posted 12 September 2013 - 08:09 AM
GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
GTA Liberty City Stories
GTA Vice City Stories
GTA EFLC (Actually got it for the PS3 first, then for the Xbox after)
Haven't played any of the London's or Advance.

He he he I started with GTA 1 in 1997 through a demo that was released in a games magazine and felt in love ever since.
