Before there was Vice City...
There was GTA 1. It's hard to imagine the jump the Grand Theft Auto series has made throughout its span. Going from an overhead, 2d Micro-Machines clone w/ violence - to a 3d Blood fest that scared senators & concerned parents - and now making an odd transition back to 2d with the mobile versions such as GTA: Chinatown Wars. GTA 1 is, by my humble opinion - the definitive GTA. A goofy, wholly politically incorrect sense of humor (running down Hare Krishnas for bonus points?) and having fun, addictive missions - this game has it all.
