GTA III Nostalgia

Recommended Posts

Evil empire

I'll never get tired of Bling-bling scramble. This mix of stress and excitement I get while playing the race and this pride I feel when I win make it very great.

 

It's too bad Rockstar didn't create anything similar in GTA Vice City.

GTA III wasn't my first GTA (I started with GTA1 on PS1), but I remember being mesmerised by how different 3 was from 1 & 2, now being third-person. I was nowhere near old enough to be playing it, but my mum and dad knew it wouldn't turn me into a serial killer (so far, so good!), so as long as I kept the violence hidden from my gran (she was round for Christmas) they weren't bothered.

 

I still remember my gran asking what you do on the game, and I was like "um, you drive around and do jobs for people," so I didn't lie... 😛

 

GTA III is, for me, the GTA that doesn't get enough love. I understand how the extra features in Vice City and San Andreas give them so much popularity, and I love them too, but III is criminally underrated!

Sometimes I love popping III back into the PS2 and just walking around Portland. Liberty City is truly a nuthouse taken to a city level.

I was listening to the songs from Rise FM the other night and it made me want to play this game so bad. Like with the other GTA games of this era, the music instantly gets me wanting to play again. I don't feel the same way about GTA IV and V weirdly, I think the soundtrack wasn't as good.

Other than Schweine, I can't name a single song on IV or V, but I barely listen to the radio these days as I'm usually recording and don't want copystrikes...

It's been like two or three months since I can't play GTA 3 and I think I will end up getting the Android version. At least not being able to play makes me to want it more.

even though mobile version is broken, it’s still not as bad as vice city, san andreas or max payne ports

Every time I see old Dodge Vipers, those 3-pointed star rims, pagers, or listen to 90's Pop songs similar to All Saint's "Pure Shores" I think of the game. It came out in the beginning of a new era where everything was still surprising and underground as f*ck!

it’s very nostalgic to hang around salvatore’s old house or driving around the dam.

I remember the old days of myths, where if you hang around Salvatore’s house too long... you might just see his ghost! That’s something that also made me keep coming back to this game, and I actually think the ghost theories fit for this game because LC is just so creepy. 

Granted they aren’t true but it was fun just hunting for these things for the sake of it.

My first memories of the game date back to times before it was even released. Me and my still close friend were sitting in the school yard reading some game magazine when we stumbled upon some GTA III announcement article with screenshots and similar. I remember we could not believe there's a slightest chance that the game is going to look that good. Since we were not only 14 year old kids and having around 600 Euros for the brand new Playstation2 seemed like something millioners could only afford, not to mention you could live for months with that kind of money in those times here, we come up with the plan: we are going to steal someones ID and 'lease' the Playstation for 24 hours with it in some of the gaming arenas - it was a pretty big deal back then, having those gaming rooms all around the city where you could game for 15 minutes for half a Euro, just like leasing it - which we did in the end, after collecting enough to have it by our side for 24 hrs, lol. We ' leased ' it. Proper Huckleberrys and Sawyers we were, war time children with excellent grades regardless. I remember keeping it in my closet during the day, since mom would undoubtedly have a question or two of how I got that. Night time was my time, of course. Despite having 15 other games we received, I only played III. 

 

Anyway, it's not the nostalgia that keeps me playing this game and I have tons of vivid, amazing memories of it; it's the fact that this game is so playable to this day - with some of the technical tweaks our modding community provides, since R* clearly doesn't give a $hit about 18 years old bugs, in every single version they release - it is simply outstanding, it is even underrated with all the fame behind it. Honestly, it's the very definition of the franchise. Easily my favorite in the series. Those who say it has aged badly, have either started gaming recently or value the ' modern ' graphics way too much.

What can I say... whenever I think about Grand Theft Auto III I feel happy, because I know it exists.

 

It must be because as a child it was my dream to play that game.

Happy 18 anniversary,GTA 3 The most revolutionary GTA and first in 3D.

I randomly was watching GTA intros and GTA 3 honestly hit me the hardest nostalgia wise. I love that Rockstar logo.

gta3’s intro is a masterpiece, especially the music. i can’t skip that, it is another thing that shows the quality of the game.

Yeah, I'm actually in two minds on if I prefer III or Vice City's intro now. I think I've always loved Vice City's intro, but the music for III is just so damn good. Just fits the crime lifestyle and Liberty City so well.
