How good was GTA 1?

Is it worth picking up a PS1 and a copy of this game out of curiosity just for the sake of trying it out, was thinking of doing this as I have never played it before? It will be my first top down GTA.

Yeah because if you download a 20 year old game that is abandonware Rockstar will obviously sue you.

 

^ was sarcasm. you can download it for free without any issues. you won't get "caught" nor will anyone care. No. It's not worth getting on PS1.

GTA1 PC version was legally available for free download on Rockstar's site but it's not there anymore.

 

I'm not sure if it's technically legal to download it now as Rockstar was once distributing it for free but is not at the moment, but getting into trouble for downloading it is unlikely anyway.

 

On the other hand a GTA1 CD for PC shouldn't cost very much on eBay for example. I bought mine from eBay.

 

If you get the PS1 CD, you can also use an emulator to play it on a computer if you do not want to buy a Playstation 1 console. If you are worried about legal things, there are PS emulators that do not require a ROM dump file.

 

Is it worth buying? I don't know, depends on how much interested you are. In my opinion GTA1 is not even nearly as great as GTA2 but this is a matter of preference. Anyway it's nice to see that there are people who are interested in the history of the series. 😛

Toshiba-3's Max Pack is the way to go. Save states give the game some serious longevity.

It's a great game and sadly unappreciated by gamers these days. Most people probably quit already in Liberty City which I will admit is the most boring district of all but once you get to San Andreas and Vice City the real fun begins. It is hard but what can you expect from a game in the 90's? Think of beating this game as a ritual of passage for a GTA-player. Once you have beaten it, you are certainly ready for every game after it and you have experienced the series right down to it's core.
