Great game and absolute hit for its time. The problem I have with this game is that you have a limited missions to work with and make money and if you fail them (which is easy to do) they will be permanently gone. After you failed a bunch of missions you still need to make a ton of money to get to the other level so you end up doing some boring stuff like stealing and selling cars.

[h1]Short version: 73%[/h1]
It’d be a lie to say GTA1 aged well, but the first entry of the series is still a fun arcade game about carjacking and other criminal activities, with the kind of satiric humour that stood the test of time.

[h1]Long version:[/h1]
Compared to the massive open world lumbering giant the franchise grew into, Grand Theft Auto 1 is a simple top-down arcade action game, inspired by the highway car chase helicopter news casts.

The simplicity is reflected in the core mechanics: instead of playing through a story (which this game lacks pretty much entirely), all six levels require a target score to pass. While almost every action gives points, the intended way to progress is to raise the score multiplier, usually by completing missions. These missions are barely anything more than a random set of objectives, tied together with some immature and politically incorrect, yet not too controversial flavour text with some (black) humour and social satire.

The game is easy in many regards– enemies aim terribly, the police are quite ineffective, and all tasks can be described in a few words– but many small annoyances can ruin gameplay. For example, there are no mission retries, and when even the player dies in one hit, it is easy to fail a task on the first try.
The best way to approach GTA1 is to think it as a memorisation game: learn the city layouts, weapon locations, and the mission objectives, and it’ll go smoothly. Just don’t forget that there is no save, so each stage has to be completed in one sitting.

The game engine is ancient and difficult to run on any modern system. On top of that, it can cause nausea with the jerky camera movement and wonky frame rates. And when it works, the player can enjoy the interesting physics that turn every vehicle into a bouncy bumper car.
Still, if you can live with these limitations, GTA1 can still hold itself on its own as a good arcade game that can warrant a replay from time to time.

While a lot of people seemed to have first played the GTA series with the 3rd person games, I started here. It's a terrific, humorous action game without the involved stories of the newer ones.

Grand Theft Auto is the root of open world exploration and gameplay. Released in 1998, this classic title started jump started the future for gaming. I don’t recommend this game just because it’s classic, I recommend it because it genuinely has good gameplay. The world is rather large for a game of the late 90s, and gameplay is actually better than a lot of Indies of today. Multiple mission routes mean endless replay value. If you’re not the type to follow story, just go around stealing cars and killing bitches, hoes, and pedestrians for mad points. It’s a real shame the developers gimped on the graphics of Grand Theft Auto. Even for a late 90’s game, the graphics for Grand Theft Auto is god awful. When my avatar leaves his car, I can’t tell the difference between his front and backside; this makes shooting quite chaotic and confusing at times. If you look pass the graphics, there is lots of fun to be had from this classic title. Play it.

Absolutely amazing game. As a kid I spent so many days lost in this, modding it, free roaming with no real objective just to enjoy the freedom. These days I still have it loaded up on my phone but seriously if you've some how never played the OG and you like the series you have to at least give it a play session. It's freeware and fairly easy to find, however the Steam version can be hard to come by.

A high school friend of mine named Tony lived in an apartment complex behind a McDonald's. I rode my bicycle over there on more than one occasion. Tony was a Sony PlayStation kind of man. PlayStation was not the first disc-based gaming system. However, it was certainly the most popular one at the time. On one such visit to Tony's apartment, he dug out a game unfamiliar to me. A game that would open the door to a whole other level of freedom. The first game to truly spark the question of right and wrong actions in video games. That game was, of course, DMA Design's Grand Theft Auto. From the moment we first picked up the controller, we had the option of stealing a car and mowing down a group of pedestrians. Grand Theft Auto was a game unafraid of offending people. It would be a few years before I dove further into the series, but I have Tony to thank for introducing me to it. Please excuse me while I shake this wanted level.
-Nintendo Rhapsody, Chapter 5

Sadly can't recommend the Steam version on newer systems/OS. Even with all community fixes applied it runs in slow-mo and at 14 FPS for me. Recommend playing the max pack version instead. Don't even bother installing this one.

Not sure what people are complaining about. I can play this game on a modern Windows 10 computer. The controls are wonky but they always were.

This is one of the grand daddies of modern gaming. This game seems almost tame compared to modern shooters, but spawned several of today's politicians that were morally outraged over violence. Never mind the fact their deep-seated corruption was largely responsible for the social conditions leading to teen violence via the destruction of the American family. Interesting that their moral outrage led to them becoming multimillionaires while their districts suffered and decayed. That's another discussion entirely.

This is an isometric shooter similar to the original Postal. It’s a bit more top-down view of the city. You run around doing gangster Sh*t, making money any way you know how. Do jobs for other gangsters, make money, and fight the man. Move through the various cities completing objectives and kicking @ss. Rinse and repeat.

This game released around the time of Windows 95 and 98. If it doesn't work on your modern PC, check out the compatibility options. I was able to get it working in Window 10 v 21H1 and I'm on a Gen 10 i7 w 64GB of RAM and RTX 2060 with no modification. I was also able to get it to run on an HP EliteBook 6470 Windows 10 v 1909 Gen 4 i5 w 16GB of RAM and Intel 4000 GFX. It was also working on a much older Intel Atom ASUS Netbook with 2GB of RAM and integrated Intel graphics. So, if you're having trouble, I would suspect it is a Direct X or GFX Card issue with your machine.

That said, this is 23 years old. My original experience with this game was playing on a Pentium 1 Toshiba laptop. My little brother and i played a Demo of this game for years before finally acquiring a retail copy. I'm sure you can still find the roms to play it on a PSOne Emulator online. There are several other ports available.

The game controls are a bit wonky and GTA2 was the superior game with better graphics and overall performance. I have GTA2 on GBA, PSOne, and a few additional platforms. Many of these games are also available on Abandonware sites.

If you're looking for first person experience, that didn't arrive until GTA 3. The expansion London 1969, I am not sure why it wasn't included, but was more of the same with a British flare. Somewhere, I still have the free versions that RockStar made available through their site in the early 2000s.

I believe now this game is only available as a Bundle. It was fun back in the day. It resembles at GBA game in the graphics department. If you're looking for something different, then you'll likely be disappointed.

I accidentally made this game run at 60 fps and I regret my life choices. This game is a puke-a-thon if you run it on anything but the FPS it's meant to run on. Also, good luck getting it to run at all. I managed to force it by virtually unplugging all my other screens from my desktop and tricking my computer into believing it only had one monitor attached. Old games are dumb and run only the way they want to.

Sad to see that it isn't available to purchase anymore, but I think it's pretty easy to come by online. You don't need to play this to understand the current series, trust me. Still, it's an interesting look back into what would become one of the most influential series of all time.

I have to say, I was surprised by just how good this game is. In the blurry screenshots on the store page, it comes across as archaic to the point of being down right unplayable, but it is, in fact, a full formed Grand Theft Auto game. Each style of car drives differently and sports the fake radio stations this series has become known for. Those stations are a little too limited for the amount of time you'll be driving around; it's like one song plus a commercial per car theme, but as long as you're sure to switch between styles frequently they won't cross into obnoxious territory.

Traffic, however, is well enough fleshed out that I've started to wonder if this series started out as a road rage simulator. Cars stay in their lanes, stop for traffic lights, and respect jaywalkers more than your average real-life American driver. This makes following traffic laws the smart move and moving into oncoming traffic a calculated risk; your car can only take so many collisions before starting to drive poorly and then exploding, after all. That said, it's a risk you'll be taking often because even the fictional versions of New York, California, and Florida have more congestion than your time-limited missions can abide.

Sadly, it's not just the traffic that makes this game a struggle. Getting over GTA's controls will be your main hurdle to enjoying the game. Tank controls were never a good idea and have been lost to time for a reason. Forget trying to line up a shot, just moving around is super non-intuitive. Over 25 hours of game time still wasn't enough for me to perfect the relatively simple task of turning while reversing.

That also probably wouldn't have been enough time for me to make it out of Liberty City without reversing the game's other big design misstep. You see, GTA doesn't so much save your progress as it allows you to unlock new levels. If you don't make it to the current level's wealth threshold, (which can be as high as $5 million) and then manage to escape without getting shot or run down too many times, you'll have nothing to show for your efforts. This arcade-y nature does jive well with the cartoonish-ness of the series' staple ultra-violence, but was ultimately too frustrating for me accept. To that end, I highly recommend getting the Max Pack. It adds the ability to create a save state which I found essential. It also keeps the game stable on more modern systems and includes the London 69 and London 61 mission packs to boot. I really don't think I would have kept playing past the first handful of hours without it, but with it I'd say it's worth all the effort it'll take to track it down.

My first GTA game and THE first GTA game, I remember GTA3 hitting the shelves and feeling amazed at how far the franchise has come, really wish they brought London 1969 to Steam. Would love for Rockstar to bring these back for other people, important part of video game history right here

I remember playing the original Grand Theft Auto via a demo that I got from one of those floppy disks you got from a computer magazine way back in 1997, shortly after it was released and I was hooked immediately. At the first opportunity I bought the full game from my local Game shop in the Manchester Arndale Centre.

I was amazed at how violent it felt, despite it's low quality graphic and side scrolling top down viewpoint, but more-so because of the large sandbox world where you could drive a car, bus, truck or motorcycle and later in the game more interesting vehicles like tanks. anywhere you wanted; even ditching vehicles into the river. You could even catch a train to other parts of the city, or run or walk almost anywhere; yet, because of it's colourful and almost cartoon like graphic, it felt okay to stop vehicles and rip the occupants out and steal their cars; or, once you'd picked up your first weapon, to just shoot everyone in sight or go on a rampage, running pedestrians over and smashing into cars willy-nilly. Each vehicle had it's own characteristics, with slow moving trucks to very fast sports cars.

Despite the game including the usual missions you always got with Grand Theft Auto games, which would see your character assassinating targets, stealing specific vehicles of which there were a large selection throughout the game, plus of course drug dealing. Completing these missions helped you rise through the ranks of the underworld. To get new missions you had to go to one of the various pay phones within each of the three cities that you got to explore (as you progressed) included Liberty City, San Andreas and Vice City. The original hard copy of the game included maps of each city, which were useful as it was easy to get lost in the maze like streets of each city. I recommend downloading the maps and game manuals from the links I've provided below as they will help increase your immersion in the game.

Personally, I had far more fun just ignoring most of the missions and driving around the city, picking up various items such as guns, armour, get out of jail cards, power ups and extra lives. My favourite of these were the kill frenzies, that were often found within smash-able crates. These would give you a specific amount of time to do as much mayhem as possible and attempt to score a certain amount of points to win the challenge.

I loved creating mayhem wherever I ended up and often my main focus would be escaping from the police. Travelling on trains to get to other parts of the city or finding a tank and blasting everything in sight was much more fun than following the scripted missions.

Sadly, with the latest computers and Windows platforms it's almost impossible to read the mission information that pops up along the bottom of the screen because it disappears before you've got past the first few words. I'm hoping when Rockstar release Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition in January (2022), that we will get proper spoken words rather than the gobbledy gook that you hear when a new mission appears. (though in the original games, this was part of the fun as it would give rise to a smile or laughter.

I'd forgotten I had GTA I and GTA II in my Steam library and had been looking for my hard copies recently as I'd had a hankering to replay the games. I happened to see a comment from someone who had sent me a friends requests who had also sold a copy of GTA 1 & 2 to another Steam community member. I checked my library and lo and behold I had both games; so installed them to see if I still got that gut feeling of excitement at driving around an imaginary city from a top down perspective. It wasn't quite the same, partly because I've been accustomed to the later GTA titles, i.e. I prefer to do it in first person, so have also reinstalled my favourite GTA classic, GTA VI to play The Lost and Damned as I'm an old biker at heart.

I was prompted to post this because I noticed a community member thanking another community member for selling him/her copies of GTA 1 and 2; both of which have been freeware (officially from Rockstar) for at least fifteen years. Both of the originals minus the add on that came with GTA :II were originally available for download directly from Rockstar and later available via special bundles that included most of the early GTA titles;. Thankfully they are still available from various abandonware sites.

You can get GTA 1 and II for free via MyAbondonware HERE and HERE. There's also download links for the manuals and maps for each game on the main download page. The links above take you to each of the games initial pages. /when you click on the yellow download buttons it will take you to the page where you can download bot the game and the manual + maps. I've scanned both files and Virus Total found no malware in both of the games installers you can check those HERE (GTA I) and HERE (GTA II).

Overall, the game hasn't lost it's original charm; though I remember being able to play the game smoothly. It feels a little jittery now, but I expect that has something to do with it playing on modern machines.

This GTA is different due to the camera angle, it has more of a 2D feel to it. However the idea is the same, open world game where you steal cars, kill people and explore. The cities are like levels, you beat a city and then go to the next one. There are 3 of them and each city has 3 gangs. The thing is, you can't travel from one city to another. Instead you gotta choose them from the menu. The way you beat them is a little different too. Instead of completing specific missions, or a number of missions, in this one you gotta reach a specific amount of money. The money system is a little bit different in this game as you get money from kills and vehicles destroyed. Missions will give you money too. So you got 2 options : Either join a gang and complete missions for them or destroy everything until you reach the amount of money needed. Be careful with gangs, respect is everything! The more you kill other gang members the more likely you will get attacked when you enter their area (kinda similar to San Andreas).
