I started with GTA 1 (And London) and GTA 2 because they were my first games ever :).

I got them in this collection.

I started playing GTA in 1997 - saw the ads and also the rumour that it was going to be banned, so I got hold of a copy for PC as soon as I could.


I also used to work on PC mods for the game, back when sites like Get That Azzhole! and the San Andreas Impound were around - I was making cars in 1999-2001, under the username LaserFoxx.


Such a long time ago :D

Bought GTA1 from Electronics Boutique in 1997. Changed my life. Games became for me more than games even with the freedom of the original game. Spent hours making my own little adventures in my head.

Bikes were impossible in GTA1, hehe.

I played GTA II extensively when it came out. I did not play GTA quite as much though. GTA L I didn't play much of. So in a way I started my playing 'career' earlier than most fans of the series.

I first played GTA1 as a schoolboy on my friend's big brother's PC, not much but I liked it and got it for my PS. The PS version was a bit cut down but it got fair play time and got the london version too.


I replayed it through my PS2 recently and it is still great although atleast 1 mission was rendered impossible by the console not spawning a fire engine ever! This time arround I took full appreciation of the 3 cities and their difficulty curve, in relation to where the series has gone since.
