I started with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Then I went back and bought every game from GTA 2 - Vice City Stories (all that was released at that time) Then I bought my xBox 360 in the middle of 2012, got GTA 4 with the DLCs, and recently got GTA 5.
Where any of you here from the beginning?

this is my first post here i thought id start with this thread it seems fitting....
so i first played GTA1 when i was in highschool... i got it 2 weeks after the first game came out for PS1..i had played it the sunday after it came out at my cousins house and just fell in love with it right away...
have to say its still my favorite of the lot only cause it was nothing like anything else ive ever played before this...whenever i hear the original song i smile..im not sure if the new game has the old song in it..i know almost every gta prior to this the song is hidden in there some where but this go around i cant find it (gta v)
then i remember seeing in a local video game chain that what i thought was a sequel, (gta london) was coming out.... so i bought it when it did... i remember i remember having to use the original disc before playing the london disc which i never understood why they did that haha....
i got gta 2 the weekend after it came out.... i HATED this game i dont know why i just never got into it..i liked some of the cars the missions were so so i just overall didnt like it...
then i saw online GTA III and how it was going to be 3d and i remember saying man they are gonna ruin the game this way cause the appeal to me was that the game looked so old felt like i was playing on a SNES and i loved that part of it...however i bought GTA 3 the day it came out ... this was before the series was as popular as it is today..i remember walking in buying my copy and the guy at the register said i was the first one to buy it all day... it was around 4 pm... and he was going on how awesome the game is and how much im gonna love it ..and asked if i ever played any of the others and i told him i had.... i took the game home and was just ridiculously impressed... and all my worries bout the game being ruined... were gone it was so much more improved (although i wish every game still allowed you to view top down just for nostalgia)
then i purchased vice city now ALLLL these new gta fans came about after the first game...i was actually worried that i wasnt going to get a copy the first week...so i preordered it at game stop and have preordered every console version ever since...
the only GTA's i havent played are gta Advanced/and the other london one ..i think its 1961...i dotn know the difference between the two london ones i just know the ps1 didnt have 1961....
my top favs are gta 1 and gta 3..... i think my least fav are gta 2 and gta china town wars....
my confusion with other gta fans is why they hate gta 4 so much i see too many people not liking that game and to me it was fun...i realize it trimmed otu a lot of what San Andreas brought to the table but i still loved it...
anyway thats ... long winded ..im a fan..nuff said

I was a rife six years old when I played GTA1. Got GTA2 not long after release, couldn't afford a PS2 for a couple years so I was late for GTA3 and GTAVC, but by the time GTASA came out I was good to go. Got GTAIV on release day back in '08, and because of money problems this year I was a few days late getting GTAV.
Lifelong fan of the series, in fact I may bust out GTA2 again later tonight, it's always been a personal favourite.

I got GTA for the Playstation on the day it came out!
Well, I got my parents to get it, hoping they wouldn't see the "18" label XD. On the way home a police car passed us and my brother murmured "they're looking for some illegally bought videogames". My brother is a c*nt.
The PS version was missing a few cars and features from the PC version, though
After that, I think it was...
GTA: Bought on release day. Got the PC version around 2001 or so. Got the Game Boy Colour version in 1999, but that was crap, the worst GTA ever! (and impossible).
GTA II: Didn't actually get this until years later, like 2007? On the PC. Didn't bother with the GBC version, though I think it was better than GTA was (IE, there was more than one car on the road at a time).
GTA III: Got it on release day. My mum did lecture me about violent games this time XD. Got the PC version not long after it came out
GTA: VC: My brother's friend f*cked up our GTA III disc, so bought this as a replacement. Got it 2-3 weeks after it was released, played the hell out of it. Got the PC version the weekend after it was released.
GTA: Advance: Got it for the hell of it, probably second hand. I would quite like it if the cars didn't roll over so easily. The controls aren't all that good either.
GTA: SA: Got it on release day, both versions!
GTA: LCS: The reason I got a PSP! I think I got it on release day
GTA: VCS: Got it a couple of weeks after release, but it's buggy as hell so I hardly played it.
GTA IV: My brother got it a week or so after it was released. I was tired of videogames by then
GTA V: My brother got it on release day, not even played it yet
