To this day, I still don't understand why they made the copcar so ugly in the final release. A simple color swap on the original paintjob would have looked much better.

Prob because that paintjob in the final is more generic and helps make Liberty City feel like it could be anywhere and nowhere specific imo

cant remember

Who else remembers those first actual gameplay clips from E3 filmed over someone's shoulder. The longest and best quality clip had someone drive a yellow van (with a lot of detail missing from the van's final version) while escaping cops and then stealing a red stallion from blue shirt guy.

Yeah, found the clips on MattJ155's YouTube channel.

Every year in October I am surprised how old this game is and I still have a lot of fun with it. There were probably a few years in between when I didn't play it, but it was always present. It also shows me every year how quickly time flies. It's been over 20 years since it was released and still so many people are still enthusiastic about it. We are still looking for more information from the pre-release phase and interesting things keep coming to light. 

These are always great memories for me. I used to run to my buddy to download some mods for GTA III. My parents only had a 56K modem and his parents already had ISDN (128k). Which reduced the download time by more than half.

 

yeah yeah the good old days... 😅
