I'm leaning toward III or Vice City, but it's tough. Got an unplayed copy of Episodes from Liberty City here too, might give it a go shortly.

3 was the big breakthrough. I'm always referring to the shock that caused me. It rewrote all the rules. It was more real than anything I'd ever seen. I really did feel, intuitively and deeply that a deal had been done with the Devil.

But San Andreas was the one I owned and played throughout one torrid Australian summer. That's the one with the best characters, voice actors, environments, missions and plots

This was perhaps the standout radio station of GTA IV for me. The weird AI guru talking to you and playing Terry Riley etc. First in the series to have its own internal internet too.

"Synthesized ideas discussed by synthesized voices. Is anything real anymore? This world is just a simulation of an idea someone else had. It wasn't a good idea."

3:02.

Never played any of them no. My mate has it but I've never played it when I've been round his house, ever. And can't recall ever playing it anywhere. I know what it is, I've watched some YouTubes.

Don't think I've handled any kind of console joystick or controller thing since I was 16, playing a fifa game.

I'd say the series as a whole is the most important cultural artifact of the millennium. That's the gothic cathedral or great pyramid of our time.

"You are traveling through space, you are looking for somewhere to settle-- it cannot be here. Nobody likes you and you are beginning to understand why. It's time to relax and worry, together."

It has a lot in common with Pynchon but the writing is sharper and a lot funnier

It's really the closest thing I've ever seen to how a computer game can be an advance on the novel. Things like the radio stations are a massive part of that. And the comments from passing pedestrians and so on.
