* FakeBand: They take up most of the radio airtime on ''I'' and ''II'' but get less prominent as the series progresses, consigned to two stations in ''III'' and ''LCS'', and just three bands in ''Vice City'' though one of them plays a part in the storyline. Some of these bands make cameos in ''IV'' and ''V'', chiefly as in-game CD props or ringtones.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Oh, quite a bit of it. The most notable being that as you are driving down the streets causing many fender benders as you weave through traffic the police don't react or pull you over unless you actually hit ''their'' car. Evidently "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hit_and_run_%28vehicular%29 Leaving the scene of an accident]]" isn't against the law in this universe, but the reason this is the case is that you would spend the entire game evading police for hit and run rather than playing. Also, the police don't seem that interested in you running red lights, making illegal U-turns, or driving on the wrong side of the street. Or on the pavement.

* BlandNameProduct: The vehicles in the games are all fictional versions of real-life cars; the Lamborghini Countach becomes the Infernus in ''Vice City'', for example, while the Range Rover becomes the Huntley in ''San Andreas'' and ''IV'' (the Huntley Sport in the latter). Naturally, some of the most common mods for the games are those that replace the vehicles with their real-life counterparts.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Fauxrrari}}: Given the violent nature of the game, it would be unlikely for real-world automobile companies to grant licences to Rockstar for use in GTA, so fictional substitutes such as the "Huntley", a parody of the Land Rover Discovery in ''San Andreas'', to name one, make up for the lack of actual marques. Naturally, some of the most common mods for the games are those that replace the vehicles with their real-life counterparts.

Added DiffLines:

** The first game is the only one you could also choose the character you want to play between a few avaliable and also change their names, instead of having the protagonist fixed to the plot. Also, there was women between the possible protagonists, making it the only game in the franchise which can have a female protagonist (that is, if you doesn't count ''GTA Online''). However, those choices doesn't affect the gameplay at all.

** Also, the box art showing multiple images in a sort of "mosaic", from which the series is famous for, only appeared for the first time in ''GTA III''. The box art in previous games consisted in just one single image.
