Last Updated on: March 12th, 2022
The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) video game franchise is a highly popular open-world action-adventure series developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. The series is known for its satirical take on American culture, its strong emphasis on storytelling, and its ability to push the limits of open-world game design.
The first game in the series, simply titled “Grand Theft Auto,” was released in 1997 for MS-DOS and later ported to PlayStation. It was a top-down, 2D game that allowed players to take on the role of a criminal who could steal cars, commit crimes, and complete missions in a fictional city called “Liberty City.”
The second game, “Grand Theft Auto 2,” was released in 1999 and continued in the same top-down, 2D style, but with improvements in graphics, gameplay, and mission variety.
The series really hit its stride with the release of “Grand Theft Auto III” in 2001. This game moved to a 3D open-world design, allowing players to explore a fully realized, immersive city called “Liberty City” in a way that had never been seen before. The game was highly praised for its engaging storyline, memorable characters, and open-world freedom.
Since then, the franchise has continued to release highly successful titles such as “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City,” “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,” “Grand Theft Auto IV,” “Grand Theft Auto V,” and most recently, “Grand Theft Auto Online.” The series has also been the subject of numerous controversies due to its mature content, violence, and depiction of criminal activities.
