My Favourite games 2: Grant Theft Auto III

....the second game in this series of games i love is none other than Grand Theft Auto. If the name leads you to beleive that its a silly game where u steal cars, you couldn't be more wrong. 'Vice' takes a whole new meaning in this game that glorifies the criminals. No wonder this game has attracted scornful critics who scream that it spoils young minds. The fact is that it created record sales.

My tryst with GTA started with GTA3. Welcome to 'Liberty city' where the only dirty word is 'hope'.You've been betrayed and left for dead. Now you're taking revenge, unless the city gets you first. Mob bosses need a favor, crooked cops need help and street gangs want you dead. You'll have to rob, steal and kill just to stay out of serious trouble. Anything can happen out here.Be ready!

Featuring a fully 3-D living city, a combination of narrative driven and non-linear gameplay and a completely open environment, the game represents a huge leap forward in interactive entertainment. For the first time, players are put at the heart of their very own gangster movie, and let loose in a full fledged and intelligent city. Beleive me , this game is at your disposal. You can choose to play it in umpteen different ways.

With a cast of hundreds, 50 plus vehicles, ranging from sports cars to ice cream trucks and from boats to buses, 3 hours of radio music, including opera, reggae, house, drum and bass, pop and disco, a huge array of street ready weapons(some really bad ones) and some of the seediest characters in video game history, Grand Theft Auto 3 is a sprawling epic which will show you that sometimes, crime can pay and sometimes it can pay you back.
