TCW Podcast Episode 152 - Grand Theft Auto 2 by 3

 

With the groundwork of the series laid down, we continue our look into the franchise of Grand Theft Auto.  GTA 2 went to market during a transition phase with Rockstar, Take-Two Interactive, and DMA (Soon to be Rockstar North), sorting out who would deal with what.  GTA 2 was a modest success, but it is GTA 3 that made Rockstar and Take-Two take off.  The gritty storytelling, realism, and relatable real-world themes made GTA 3 a blockbuster hit.  Further refinements to the system lead to the sequels GTA: Vice City and GTA San Andreas.  Each expansion faced controversy, especially San Andreas with the infamous HOT COFFEE!

TCW Podcast Episode 151 - Grand Theft Auto 1

 

We start our look at the legendary game series Grand Theft Auto.  A game series that had many influences that came out of the British PC market.  The game may not have seen the light of day if it was not for developers and executives championing the game to BMG Interactive.  With the help of a PR campaign to stir up false controversy that lead to a speech denouncing the game to the House of Lords, the game launched to modest success!  Though the best is yet to come as Rockstar gears up to release Grand Theft Auto 2 and 3!
