Hmmm... It was probably way back in the day, probably when I was maybe 5 or 6 (had to be, that was back in '98) I first played GTA. I didn't really know what I was doing considering I was so young. All I knew, was I could drive a car around a city (not that that was new to me. I've been a Carmageddon fan since day 1.) My brother then moved on to downloading or buying (i'm not sure, it was the early 00's and everything was pirated off of something, somehow) GTA2. Lets just say, I spent a good portion of my early years playing, and eventually beating GTA2. It still holds a special part in my heart because that's where I first got my bearings for GTA, was GTA2. I remember a friend bringing it over for PS1 or PC, not too sure but just being able to shoot the sh*t with a friend while you shot the sh*t, was pretty awesome. I then promptly moved onto GTA3 after seeing my cousin play it a few weeks after it came out, and then going to a friends house to watch her brother play it a few weeks after that. Vice City though.... was the basis of my 3D exploring. I didn't play all that much of GTA3 until I became older, and enjoyed playing it more. Vice City was the one that got my start for the severe love of GTA that I have now. I remember going into this hole in the wall video rental store some days after Vice City came out, and seeing a mint copy on the shelves. I don't think i've ever made my mind up on something as fast as I did that day, I think we were in and out in a matter of 15 minutes. I literally destroyed that disk playing it so much, and it built my love of 80's everything. My brother bought San Andreas about a month or so after it came out, and I played that almost every day up until GTA IV came out. The rest is history..
