GTA Game Files

Recommended Posts

LibertyKing

This is my new project: GTA Game files. These are small files which gathers important information from all the GTA games. I've linked important information to www.grandtheftwiki.com like characters, locations, maps and years. I plan to do all GTA Games, even V. Please tell me if I made any error.

Other facts: GTA London 1969's title may be the first 69 sex joke. Only GTA games to be set outside of the USA and in a real-life city. Last GTA game to feature multiple protagonists until GTA V.

Website: Link. (Contains a sentence at the bottom of the page saying: "You need to be 18 or over to play Grand Theft Auto London 1969. Kids - don't do it please!" Which might represent the fear of DMA to be sent in court or it may just be a joke.)

Bump. Please tell me if I should continue adding more GTA games, if it's useful or not. If it's not, I'll just stop.

That's not bad but add LCS, VCS, IV, EFLC and its games TLaD and TBoGT. Also you haven't mentioned Original Grand theft Auto's release for GBC. You can make it even better, by adding GTA V information. By the way, nice work.

As I said in the first paragraph, I'm going to do all games including V. I also mentionned GTA 1 on Game Boy Color in the release dates and ratings. You should look a little bit further before posting next time. ;)

And thanks for the respect! :)


Edit: Updated. GTA LCS Added.

Wanted to finish this before GTA V released, but because of school and other stuff, I couldn't. I'm leaving GTAForums until I finish GTA V.

Yeah I know, Grand Theft Wiki changed some files' name. I started this project two months ago. I stopped as nobody seemed to care. I think I might continue it then. :)

Edit: They were actually deleted from GTW. I don't know what I'm gonna do.

I don't know if this stuff is really needed. :/

All this information is readily accessible (maybe apart from the Gameboy versions of GTA 1, 2 and 3) on the Internet by simply googling the name of the game.

 

Like the GTA 5 databases for characters, vehicles etc. are good because they don't just look like a copy-paste of the Wikipedia infobox.

 

Be more creative, try and make the thread a bit more unique by adding some extra details (I can't think of anything because I'm not very creative) but as it is it is just too bland and simple.
