Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto III changed everything. Featuring a brave, bold and truly open three dimensional world where players could come and go as they please; and their actions had deeper consequences then a game-over screen, coupled with innovative graphics and an incredibly deep branching storyline, one thing was evident – the gaming industry was growing up. Now, nearly a decade later, the series is rewriting everything we thought we knew.
Excerpt: Were I to ask you to steal a car, would you say "Kick Ass!" or would you say "Jolly Good"? Well, if you answered yes to either then brace yourself for some criminal fun with this new mission pack to the popular Grand Theft Auto. London 1969 presents a whole new opportunity to steal cars, assassinate mobsters, hijack a wide array of vehicles and of course, drive maniacally, though this time the traffic rules are reversed (remember, you're in ENGLAND!).
Summary: It's hard to say why Grand Theft Auto is so much fun to play, since many people seem to get bored with it quickly. The simplicity of the gameplay might be one factor: You spend most of your time driving a little car through city streets, collecting points for committing crimes. It might sound like a good time initially, but for how long? For many, the answer will be "not very long." So what type of gamer will enjoy GTA? Let's reflect on your childhood for the answer.
