Grand Theft Auto is one of the most popular games in gaming history. In the same time, the game is also one of the most controversial. The game has been subject of numerous lawsuits, with lawyers claiming that the game caused the clients to commit crime.

The sixth installment of the game is about to hit the stores in 2016, so this seems as good as time as any to revisit some of the older versions. The series dates back to the early era of games, back to the 16-bit era, and incorporates those elements into the game. And from there, the game has developed into being one of the best graphical and enjoyable games to play.

Grand Theft Auto is essentially an action-adventure video game, with action set in American cities. The goal of the game is for the character to progress to the overall story in an open world, but also try side activities such as racing elements, stealth, role-playing and much more.

The main protagonist is always someone who is trying to rise through the ranks of the criminal underworld. In each game, however, the motivation is different. The antagonists, on the other hand, are usually characters that have betrayed the protagonist

This documentary takes a look at the early versions of GTA, and up to the 2014 versions of the game. Check the development and evolution of one of the best video games in history.
