Were any of you here from the beginning?

Here since the beginning, in 97 or 98 my older brother got a copy of GTA 1 from his friend and we installed it on our PC. I wasnt allowed to play it by my parents lol (we got caught actively trying to burn hare krishnas!!) but I would play it whenever I got the chance! Eventually the game wouldnt load anymore without the disc so I had to go without.

 

When GTA 2 came out I played it in my friends house but wasnt impressed by it at all, it just didnt have that grimey feel of the original. The trailer/movie did but the game was too futuristic for me

This was when I bought my first copy of GTA 1, I remember I got it for £12 and it came in that massive box

 

Then with GTA III, I remember going into the city centre on Christmas Eve and begging the guy in the shop to sell me the game as he was asking for ID but he actually sold it to me - it was a Christmas miracle! I will never forget the trainride home, reading the instruction manual like a tourists guide getting ready to experience GTA in a 3D environment!

i started with GTA 1 and London.. I played not so much because i played other "better" PC Games.. I never complete GTA 1. GTA 2 was played more often, i liked GTA 2 more because of the retrofuturistic style and smoother gameplay than GTA 1

I started with the original. My fiancé started later on, so, I was explaining GTA1 to him and he was blown away that it was so different. Not really the basics, I mean the look of the game.

That's me too, except that I played VCS before III... my friend borrowed it to me in exchange for my GTA Vice City.

My grandpa bought me GTA from electronics boutique.  I wanted it although I had never played it before. I remember the first time I stole a car and ran someone over.. Wow what a moment in history for me.

I rented London 1969 from my local grocery store multiple times.

Mowed yards all summer to buy a dreamcast the day it came out.  Bought GTA2 for that..  I would role play that a certain house was mine and park my car in front of it.  Standing next to my car id let my character idle and smoke cigs.

Played 3 with my best friend until the sun would come up.  Straight up marathons. no homo

Vice city was the same.

Stood second in line for SA release in a pin-stripe suit. The gamestop was releasing it early. during the day. and making it into a pizza party/ costume contest.  My friend had a rebel shirt. A mullet wig. And a bb gun.  When we went it they made him take the bb rifle out to the car.  The person who won a free copy of SA for the costume party?  A gamestop employee. The judges?  gamestop employees! His costume sucked too.  It was just a tux print tshirt, and he was black so he'd just yell "lance vance dance!".  IT was funny, buy my friend wore a goofy phil cassidy mullet, in line on a busy street lol. classic.

IV and V were collector edition midnight release. 

It's been a wild ride..

The way you worded this makes it sound like you getting GTA and you stealing a car + running someone over were two separate things

which is really funny

Nah, I had a PS back then and was playing games, but haven't ever played it. I had GTA 2, however, didn't like it too since there were many 3D games and I actually was enjoying the Driver series at the time when they came out. I still believe it's a very decent title but released at a wrong time, if it was released 1 or 2 years before the actual release date, it might have the respect and the fans it deserved. I still occasionally play PS1 games for a nostalgia, yet still have no intention to open and play it.

I played 1 at a relative we were visiting, I couldn't find one to call my own until after 2 came out. I got hooked ever since.
