* KillerApp: For the PlayStation2. Granted, the console had achieved the rare feat of utterly dominating the console market from the very day it was released, but this was the first game to truly show off the system's capabilities, and cemented it as the system to beat.

** A character named Darkel was scheduled to appear in the game, before being removed. He would have given Claude a serious of missions that would have involved committing acts of terrorism. Contrary to popular belief, he wasn't cut because of 9/11, but some time prior because he [[BizarroEpisode didn't fit with the rest of the game]]. However, pictures of Darkel can still be found on the GTA III website, his voice actor (Bill Fiore) is still credited in the manual, and his missions were either deleted, converted into Rampages, or given by other bosses (El Burro's mission "I Scream, You Scream" being the most notable example).

[=McClarin=]).

* TooSoon: After 9/11, Rockstar North changed the paint jobs on the police cars so that they didn't resemble those of the [[NewYorkCityCops NYPD]]. Some pedestrian dialogue was also changed, and a whole character and associated mission set (which involved acts of terrorism) was cut out, with his missions {{Retool}}ed or presented out of context as Rampages. There was insufficient time between the disaster and publication for extensive alterations.
