The lights are on
If you're on this site, you know what Grand Theft Auto is. While we're willing to bet you're familiar with GTA III and IV, there's a chance some of you out there aren't nearly as familiar with the original top-down games. It's true that the jump to 3D did wonders for Rockstar's series, but you'll find much of the same personality and humor in their less visually-impressive earlier installments.
Check out our look back at GTA 2 below.

hmm idk why everyone keeps having problems with the videos loading, I haven't had any problems yet. anywho...this weeks replay was funny. I guess that when they run out of things to assign to buttons, they make it the burp button lol
and pleaze don't do that roulette for the super replay!!! >_< although it was fun to hear y'all get frustrated lol =P
Man that Dracula game looked painful!
Yep...it was all fun and games untill you unknowingly kill a cop and have have the emtire police force after you....that being said that game was fun
OMG Roulette made me want to kill myself, Vampire Coundown all the way guy.
"there's a chance some of you out there aren't nearly as familiar with the original top-down games" - that's the understatement of the year (and it's only Jan :P)
I myself always wanted to see how it played.
I love replays.
Thanks R* and GI!
Come on Countdown Vampires!
You guys need to do a Thief: Deadly Shadows replay. You need to bring out an original xbox game.
OMG! GREATEST GAME EVER! GTA2 ftw!
i remember one mission for the scientists where you had to go around in a bus collecting people then dropping them off at a hotdog factory to be grinded up lol. they gotta get back to the humourous roots of this series.
Oh God, please don't vote for this one.
I love this game it was one of the best on the dreamcast
These early ones are still my favorite GTA games. I still like the third GTA, Vice City, and San Andreas... (GTA IV sucked big time) But 1 and 2 always have a place in my gaming history as stone solid CLASSICS.
GTA is amazing.
That dracula game looks extremely boring. I would never play it.
I watched the whole super replay of overblood it was amazing but this dracula thing was unbearable for that brief video hope the next two canidates are way better.
