Grand Theft Auto (commonly shortened to GTA) is s fun, family friendly, and immersive video game series for young kids and overly protective parents to play together as a family. The series is known for its highly advanced plot lines, realistic graphics and physics, and missions that require intense levels of concentration and skill. They are great games for improving a child's hand-eye coordination, focusing abilities, and response times at a young age. The games can also be used to teach children how to drive and shoot at a young age, preparing them for the world ahead, and eliminating the need to pay for drivers ed classes in high school.

1. The crime of stealing a car.

2.The best thing to happen to videogames ever. First developed for the PC in 1996, GTA created a huge storm with it's ground breaking violence, just like Mortal Kombat before it. Even though it branded an '18' certificate, there was still outrage. It was when it hit the PSone that things really started to get stirred up. On the Daily Mail (England) the words 'Evil "Game"'. When GTA london hit the shelves, again the Daily Mail were the first to brand it with a mark. "An addition to the evil." it said, reffering to that it was the first add-on pack ever made. GTA2, and it had all calmed down a bit. There was still some anger though. When Driver wowed the crowds with it's 3D graphics and smooth handling, Rockstar knew they had to come up with a solution. So they decided to make it 3D. No suprises there then. But Rockstar also decided that they would put thier next game where they knew it would sell well. That place was the next gen console. Being faithful to Sony and the PC, they put their game on those two systems. They knew it would sell well. But they didn't know it would sell as well as it did. If you had told Rockstar that thier game would sell 8 million copies, they would have laughed at you and called security. But that is what happened. Think about that for a second. That is a LOT of money. You pay £40 for a new game, and 8 million copies were sold. How much money is that? £320000000. Dan Houser must be laughing. The controversy this caused was outstanding. 'The Evil Returns in 3 Dimensions' screamed the Daily Mail. Of course, they had to make a sequel. So they did. It was anticipated a little bit. The gameplay was slightly improved. Rockstar made a little bit of money. Its quite a good game. BRING ON SAN ANDREAS!!!!!!!!!
Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK: "Vice City doesn't just blur the barrier imbetween videogames and popular culture, it completely decimates them."

PSM2: "Grand Theft Auto Vice City is the best thing to happen to any console ever."

Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK: "San Andreas looks so good, that a member of staff actually pissed themselves. That is not a lie. Really.

One of the greatest video games of all time. Made by Rockstar North of Rockstar Games. Newest version is known as GTA: San Andreas. Highly recommended by most game players/critics.

Always has been good. From GTA 1 on up. Anyone who says it's good from GTA 3 on up is just a graphics whore.

A really good videogame series (refering to GTA3 and all successors) that throws you into a parody of some major US city where you make a shitload of money by stealing, drug-dealing, shooting-up rival gangs and preforming various other errands for criminals, gangs, and other scumbags, and then just wreak havok or screw a hooker in your spare time. Plagued (along with every other videogame in history) by a fanbase that consists primarily of hyperactive, crack-addicted 12-year-old boys who couldn't pass a 1st grade spelling-bee if their lives depended on it. Yeah, you all know who you are. The majority of the game's "mature" players must not frequent Internet forums that often.

Oh, and this series also seems to routinely get blamed for the idiotic actions of a few Rednecks and urban white trash by gun control freaks and suburban pussies who want to punish everyone in the world for the misdeeds of a few dozen morons.
GTA is really good stress therapy if you have to drive 40 miles through some of the shittiest traffic in your region to get to work each day.
