Excerpt from column:
Known as GTA, Grand Theft Auto is a video game series set in fictional cities that often resemble American urban areas. The overall goal of the game is to complete missions while engaging in driving/stealing/racing cars, murdering your rivals, and having sex with prostitutes. Another way to put this (in the words of Samuel L. Jackson’s character Jules from Pulp Fiction): “A bunch of gangsters doing gangster shit!”
There are currently ten stand alone games and four “extension packs” available under the Grand Theft Auto umbrella. Dating back to 1997, the game has sold over 100 million units as well as feature voices from film veterans Michael Madsen, Ray Liotta, Burt Reynolds, Dennis Hopper, James Woods, Jenna Jameson, Phil Collins, and Samuel L. Jackson.
The basic concept is you are a criminal working your way up the ranks of an organized crime syndicate. You receive various missions from the leaders of the underworld which must be completed in order to advance (to more missions). The overall story is usually based around avenging a death or other unfortunate event. Most of the series is set in three cities/areas: Liberty City (based on New York City), Vice City (based on Miami), and San Andreas (based on Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas).
