The lights are on
From its beginnings in 1997, Grand Theft Auto has been a game that is just as much about its open sandbox world as it is about its story and characters. Doing what you want in Grand Theft Auto's world has always been welcome, and we decided to take a look at how it has changed over the last 16 years.
In the video below (which you can also see on our YouTube channel), you will see what ignoring objectives and morals has looked like over the years in Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto II, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Grand Theft Auto V. Cheat codes were employed, but only weapon and armor codes. The only exception is San Andreas, where it seemed appropriate to activate the fat code.
Let us know what you think below! Do you want to see more videos like this, showcasing video game franchises as they have changed over the years?

I'll always find a way to cause havoc in any open world game muhahaha!
This is simply awesome...Of course I'd love to see more video's like this. Bring's back a lot of memories, Half the time I couldn't even get through the story because I caught myself getting mad at some innocent bystander for running into my car or something. LOL Love this
Lol good times:)
Quite the jump from 2 to 3 and VC to 4
Funny how in all these years, killing the cops still hasn't become dull. Vice City FTW!
Oh how the years have passed.
I like the GTA V police chases the best. I like how they realistically try to barricade you to cut off all escape routes when they get in close.
Way to hit the tail of that chopper in GTA V. I didn't think the RPG would make it, but then I was all "WOAH! Cray-cray sunuvagun!"
The great thing about this series is how creative you can get with different ways to cause havoc. I love getting on top of a train and shoot at everything I see with my minigun in GTA V
War.... War has changed.
Ts was pretty good. Grand theft auto is just great.
Kinda disappointed by this to be honest. I was hoping for something more replay length. Getting less than a minute per game is kind of just a tease here, and, as others have mentioned, the spinoff games were left out.
does anyone else prefer the sound of the AR in GTA IV compared to GTA V sounds so much more intense
