Video Game: Grand Theft Auto III
I see nothing but good things for you, my boy...
"Sorry, babe, I'm an ambitious girl, and you... You're just small time."
In Liberty City, a Fictional Counterpart
to New York, you play a silent
, nameless note
protagonist who escapes from a prison transport and climbs the city's criminal ladder. You are hoping to get revenge your ex-girlfriend/partner in crime Catalina, who left you for dead after a bank robbery gone bad. It won't be an easy journey. Some will backstab you, and others will think you are in the way. But if you fight the good fight, this will be one hell of a ride.
This game burst onto the scene in 2001, completely overhauling the series by bringing it into a 3D environment, popularizing
the Wide Open Sandbox
genre and turning Rockstar Games into its namesake. Although further games would add polish, few sequels deviate too much from this winning formula.
Released on PlayStation 2
, then on the Xbox
and PC, and eventually got released on iOS and Android.
