Can you believe it's been a decade since Rockstar went and kind of changed everything?

That actually looks halfway decent. I wish they'd do this for ps3/360.

I remember playing this game for the first time. Totally blew my mind. Can't believe it has been ten years.
I thought this said "100th anniversary" I need to go to bed

I got this and a PS2 for my birthday when it came out. Some of my happiest memories. I couldn't believe it, a massive world to explore and I could do anything I wanted.
So of course I killed some hookers.
GTA 3: The game that created "jank"

10 years on and we are left with GTA games that aren't as fun as their predecessors.
Saints Row 3 looks to be the San Andreas of this gen.

It blows my mind that ten years have passed. Fuck.
I fucking loved this game.
I remember getting GTA III when it was released - it's hard to imagine its been 10 years...
No RDR for PC means Rockstar has been dead to me for quite a while, but I still cherish my Vice City soundtrack box.
Same here, I'm guessing that would take up a lot of time though, I'd rather have GTA V.
Gamersgate has the entire GTA collection for under €14. And of course, ENB and iCEnhancer mods.
GTAIII still has the best video game trailer/commercial.
Rockstar, remake GTAIII, VC, and SA on the RAGE engine with updated graphics and controls and junk, and I'll give you all of my money.
"Thank you for all your support"
That's why were bringing this for the iPad and don't make a version for the plattforms that helped GTA to become what it is today.

GTA 3 was and still is awesome. I always think of this song when I think of GTA3, even though this was only featured in Liberty City Stories:

This was the first PS2 game I played... Was a pretty fucking awesome way to be introduced to a new generation of consoles.

...and then proceeded to make the exact same game for another decade, while peaking at the second game. Go away, Rockstar :|

Oh man, I am starting to get old.
So... I still don't understand. I get that it's 10th anniversary but... are they re-releasing the game? Or are they just saying "hey, it has been 10 years"?

Totally remember picking up this game on launch day at my local EB Games and hearing the cashier tell me that I was one of three pre-orders for the game. A huge grin crept across my face upon realizing what exactly I had just purchased before everyone else picked up on the game.
I suddenly feel old.
@nohthink: They're making an iPad version of it.

Because people already have it for those platforms.
They should do an "Old Look" video with this game... or I guess it's called "Load Our Last Save". I'm not good with remembering titles. Anyway, this would be enjoyable to revisit.
I can't wait to see how many stupid ways I fuck up a mission thanks to stupid iPad controls. I got one of those Fring joypads so that should help with the driving at least.

I can remember when I got this game for my then new PS2. Looking back on it, I was too young to be playing that game, they have made me into the model adult I am.
That voice acting is a lot worse than I remember it being.
I shall be literally shocked if they don't release it on every other platform imaginable!

Weird that it has been that long.
HEY JOEY WHEN YA GONNA DRILL ME
Thanks so much for reminding me just how fast time fly's.

I played so much GTA3, me and a friend played it every weekend for a full year. Yes it is the least refined of the PS2 GTAs because it was the first out the gate but I still think it was so damn fun and revolutionary despite its issues.
O mio babbino carrrrrrrro!
Man I remember seeing the original ad back in 2001 having no idea what this game would eventually become.
I always liked the Indian cab driver who shouted "Get in the back!" when you jacked his car. HAPPY DAYS.
Jesus. I can't even begin to express the amount of nostalgia I have invested in this game.
Just the best thing ever.
Love this game and haven't play it for AGES so, maybe, at some point, I'll play it again.
Vice city is still the best GTA game
Wow, ten years already...
Wow 10 years? I remember this game selling me on the ps2 when it still cost ridiculously high amounts of money, gets me excited for gta v too
It would have been great if they gave it the Halo anniversary treatment and did an full HD remake... and remaking the controls; I can't go back to the old ways.
Anyway, awesome game. I have tons of memories in that entire franchise.
Nope. Chuck Te.. I mean San Andreas.
Man those graphics do NOT hold up.
I played this on PC with mouse and keyboard and my friends couldn't handle the thought of not using a controller. Also playing on PC allowed me to use mods and change the game data to allow me to do things like... make the tank handle like a sports car.
On a side note, I was once interested in Dead Island, now I have nothing but scorn for it.
Ten years later and I still think these games are pretty awful.
One of my college roomates had just gotten a PS2 when this game came out, but never got a memory card. I started playing the game and I just left the PS2 on pause for hours at a time for several days before beating it. When he finally got a card and went on to play the game the disc was ruined. (To be fair, I did ask if he was cool with it as it was happening and he said yes and declined my offer to purchase a new one. I would later go on to take a floor lamp which might have been his when I moved out) Had a great time later on replaying it on Xbox with the Vice City double pack and San Andreas subsequently.

Well considering its been 10 years I'd say they do hold up remarkably well.
Remember that 10 years is a millennia in video game years - it's shocking that we even recognize that as graphics at all and not some random sequence of flashing colours.
Use your keyboard!
