Edit: New page!


I started with Vice City and played the hell out of it on my fat PS2.

^Same but with the PC. I wonder how GTA felt for the first time back when it was a new game.

I was... sort of. I had a PlayStation with a bunch of games, and my friend across the road had a copy of GTA2. After seeing him play a few times, I was really really intrigued. I got my own copy of Grand Theft Auto for my PlayStation and, shortly after, a copy of Grand Theft Auto 2. I swore by those games until I had a crappy computer that could play GTA III at a few frames per second, and it only really got better from there.

GTA 3 was my first game, and it is the game that got me into the GTA Series.

GTA F or the series?
I joined GTA F around after a year from GTA SA release. Until later when I discontinued the forum, few weeks before GTA IV release, and joined back after around 4 years in 2012 with a fresh start.
As for the series, I joined in with GTA 2 release.

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.

You and I are some of the oldest accounts around

I've been here from the beginning. Still have my original copy of GTA 1 and PS 1 console. Played every version of GTA since, except the 'add-on' stories releases, they never felt like 'true' GTA's to me. Does anyone remember the little under water ramp that lead to the island? I felt like Jesus when I discovered that back in the day, walking on water :)

Played GTA 1 and London at my cousins in the mid-late 90s. Wasn't really into it, we just messed around shooting pedestrians. GTA 3 is when I became a real fan.

I went from GTA 1 to others in the right order despite it being a little late, as I first got to play it in 2003.

Back in the 90s I bought the GTA London editions that were like addons really to the first game, but came out 2 years later.. I bought them in a pack.. I think the pack at GTA 1 and the London versions. I've bought every GTA over the years, except the chinatown wars one.

A friend of mine's father had bought GTA2 and he let us play it alot on his computer. Some time later he then burned the game on another CD so we also could play at my home. i think that was even before we were old enough to attend primary school. Good old times  :lol:

Can't say I was there from the beginning, unfortunately, knowing full well that GTA 1 is an underrated masterpiece.

My first game was GTA 2 in the summer of 2001, and my love for the franchise was solidified with this game.

I've yet to play Advance or Chinatown Wars, though.

Yep, I was there from the beginning, one of the first PC's my dad got was a TINY after having the AMIGA PC for years... wasn't interested in games until Grand Theft Auto... played that and played it for hours, days, weeks... until GTA2. I was only 10 years old, but seeing it now seems like nothing to a ten year old but it was still an 18.

Eagerly awaited the release of GTA2, and I remember the hype train for GTA3, that was a glorious day when I got my copy of 3 from EB I tell you... I remember that day even now. Yeah, I've been here since the beginning!
