Driver reference

GTA3: You kill a guy named Tanner that drives a car similar to the main one found in Driver.

GTASA: I believe it's Mad Dogg playing it as you sneak behind his couch in his mansion, when stealing his "rhymes" or something.

The guy playing yells at the character in the game, with some obscenities.

 

True Crime reference

GTASA: There is a billboard that reads "TRUE GRIME: Cleaning the streets" or something along those lines.

From memory, you find it near Unity Station.

 

Edit: From Wikipedia:

 

 

Due to the success of the Grand Theft Auto series, notably Grand Theft Auto III and subsequent games, several other developers have attempted to emulate GTA's driving/shooting formula and open-ended sandbox game style play. Subsequently, the term "GTA Clone" has come into use by video game critics and players alike to refer to the many titles released following the massive success of Grand Theft Auto III in 2001, which attempt to emulate the gameplay style of games from the Grand Theft Auto series. More specifically, a GTA Clone is often an action sandbox game that usually contains a large free-roaming map that can be explored on foot or in a vehicle, as well as a large crime element with a crime-related storyline and missions.

 

Notable games that are sometimes seen as GTA Clones are DRIV3R, Driver: Parallel Lines, The Getaway series, The Godfather: The Game, True Crime: Streets of LA and True Crime: New York City,[18][19] Saints Row,[20] Scarface: The World Is Yours,[21] The Simpsons Hit & Run, Just Cause, Mafia, Payback, Gangs of London and Total Overdose.

As a result of such similarities, Rockstar has placed several Easter eggs to mock the competition. One such Easter egg in GTA III references Tanner, the protagonist of several games in the Driver series. In a mission called "Two Faced Tanner" players must kill a "strangely animated" undercover cop who is "useless out of his car" (they even go so far as to give the pseudo Tanner a female pedestrian's walking animation).

 

In GTA: Vice City, during the mission "Autocide", the targets that the player must kill are subtle references to the main characters of Driver 2 (Dick Tanner, after Tanner), The Getaway (Marcus Hammond and Franco Carter, after Mark Hammond and Frank Carter), and True Crime: Streets of LA (Nick Kong, after Nick Kang Wilson). DRIV3R responded by sticking water wing-wearing characters named Timmy Vermicellis, after the protagonist of Vice City, Tommy Vercetti, since none of the protagonists in the GTA series could swim before GTA: San Andreas.

 

In San Andreas, while breaking into Madd Dogg's mansion, players will see a man playing a video game and making fun of the way the main character walks stating "How could Refractions [a parody of Reflections Interactive] mess up so bad? Tanner, you suck ass!!" (Tanner's walking animations were often criticized). Another San Andreas Easter egg mocks True Crime, which was depicted on several billboards in the city of Los Santos, in addition to the "TRUEGRIME" garbage truck cheat code, which also mocks the game.

I know what you're saying but i think its to far ahead to judge...But since GTA IV is almost here, if you noticed a few posters in the background, they are destroying the game "Crackdown" and i'm glad.. devil.gif

 

Plus i hope there is some stuff about Saints Row 1/2

Though it is funny... Crackdown is a great Sandbox.. though the story line is short

I forgot that other bit, sounded like generic video game sounds but it was the voicing by the NPC that gave it away? I am playing SA again but real slowly in fact! hahaha colgate.gif
