** Even ''GTAIII'' itself is this, more or less unintentionally. It's set around autumn of 2001, about the same as its October '01 release, but because very little was [[TooSoon changed to reflect]] attitudes and reactions to [[TheWarOnTerror the September 11th terrorist attacks]], it ostensibly takes place before September.
