Added DiffLines:

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Retroactively applied to those who play later 3D-era GTA games before III; in particular, the fact that the camera view is limited compared to later games when it comes to looking up and down, which can cause issues for players used to a more dynamic range of camera movement when driving or walking around Liberty City.

* 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 one mission that mentioned terrorism was removed. There was insufficient time between the disaster and publication for extensive alterations.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Inevitably, with the game taking place in October 2001.
** Claude uses a pager (and in some cases, a pay phone box) rather than a cell phone to communicate. On Chatterbox, a MoralGuardians group leader against cell phones calls in to talk about how difficult it is to communicate without them. Both of these elements have been dated past TheNewTens with many more people owning cell phones, and even more so by the fact almost every game in the series uses cell phones rather than pagers.
** Liberty City's portrayal as TheBigRottenApple before [[UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror the War on Terror and 9/11]]. Even though the game was held back a month to [[TooSoon try remove content that would look offensive after 9/11]], very little had been done to change that.

Added DiffLines:

** There were a ton of rumors about what content had been cut after 9/11, including a persistent one that Donald Love's last mission would have involved crashing a plane into a building, despite WordOfGod saying that there were never plans for large aircraft.
** Another one was the Maibatsu Monstrosity being driveable.
** And that Fernando Martinez was hidden somewhere in the game and had missions for you.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: Some fans are completely sure that Claude was originally concieved as a speaking protagonist, because of a leftover sound from GTA 2 appearing in a trailer for the game. Rockstar denies that Claude was ever supposed to speak, though.

* 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.
