Ah. Grand Theft Auto..
I just want to make this thread showing my story and love to the GTA Franchise. It started many years ago, 2006. I was a young child.... My brother was playing GTA San Andreas. I Just sat there watching like an idiot as he terrorized Los Santos. he went around killing people, causing rampages, and damn. it was an experience. The freedoam, the movable, it was like real life. I just wanted to hit my brother on the head and take the controller to play the game. Next year or so, i bought GTA Vice City. 2007
And god damn, it was the greatest thing ever. I went around free roaming with a ninja sword slicing peoples head all over. Getting 3 star wanted level, and kill police. I then did this mission, my lawyer told me to meet this dude who was sitting on his boat. So I drove there, with my car, but I was a horrible driver.. I crashed like 50 times, and after that the car exploded but I managed to escape. I then took a bike, and drove there. I dont remember so much more than that, but yeah. Vice City was the greatest, and to date, (personally) is the greatest nostalgia I ever had. Alongside GTA San andreas of course.. Even though I did not play them or experience them in a chronological order.
Now comes my real GTA experience, - GTA Liberty City Stories, and GTA Vice city stories. it was late 2007 to 2008.
Damn, such a nostalgia.. Starting off with GTA LCS. I played as Toni, and the first mission was easy. It unlocked the safe house and gave me the suit. I loved that suit you could wear. I played many missions, but alot of them was hard at the time. I only a kid, lol. But yeah. Same goes for VCS, I played both.
GTA IV. Right at time, 2008. This time, my brother had a PS3, and bought the game. And damn, it was awesome. I immediatly realised the new graphics, and improved gameplay. I could not wait to play it, and it was an experience... Loved it. From there, I still had my old PS2, and boosted up all the GTA games. GTA San Andreas, Vice City, and yeah. But now, comes the real deal.. My biggest gaming experience ever... GTA V.
2011. I was still young, it was a cold day in November here in Sweden. I was inside.. I started my laptop. I went to Youtube.. And all of a sudden surprise, I found this video called GTA V trailer.. Holy f*ck.. It was the best 1 minute or whatever length of time it was, of my life. I loved every second of watching it. From there on in, I went to gtav.net and just red news every single day. It was a long time from that day, till february of 2012. Still a long time from the first trailer, but I was patient. I could wait.. Untill 2013. It was announced it would come out March/May of 2013. It got delayed, I got angry. Time passed, and this is where my experience started. It was June of 2013, I could not wait for GTA v to hit the shelfs in September. I waited every day... It was a long journey.. I watched every single trailer, I loved it, It just was amazing....
September 16, 2013.
It was late at night, I was ready, Midnight launch, I was gunna to go Game stop to buy it, to hold it. It was a master piece to me, and I just loved it. GTA V was on my hands (Special edition, btw)... I played the sh*t out of it, skipping my homework, I finished the storyline.. And now. January of 2014. here I sit, a young teenager, playing GTA V. With memories of all other GTA games.. Its an amazing franchise.
