Best GTA Game PlayStation Poll 1

GTA, or Grand Theft Auto, is arguably the biggest brand in gaming, rivalling juggernauts like Super Mario and Call of Duty. Originally created for the PlayStation and PC in 1997 by Scottish developer DMA Design – which would go on to rebrand itself as Rockstar North – the series has shipped more than 350 million units over the course of its 20 year lifespan. And now, we want to know your personal favourites.

GTA has a long and illustrious history spanning all of Sony’s home consoles, and its first portable as well. The series started out as a top-down adventure game, where you could steal cars and use them to complete missions accessed from telephone booths. The first instalment introduced its trio of iconic American inspired maps: Liberty City, San Andreas, and Vice City.

In 2001, Rockstar rocked the video game landscape forever with GTA 3, a 3D version of its PS1 titles which allowed you to explore its sandbox as you pleased. This landmark game had a profound impact on the industry at large, and played a significant part in establishing the open world genre, which would go on to be adopted by the likes of Ubisoft, Sony, and many more.

Featuring Hollywood stars like Ray Liotta and Samuel L. Jackson, GTA is not only a popular video game series, but has also etched itself into popular culture. With enormous licensed soundtracks and dozens upon dozens of iconic characters, the franchise is considered one of the industry’s most cherished, earning rave reviews along the way.
