A full history of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. From the origins of DMA Design, up to the latest updates to GTAOnline and beyond!
Celebrate nearly 25 years of one of the most iconic open world video games of all time by learning how the series has evolved.
Join me as I detail each and every game, breaking down their development history, storyline, gameplay features, visuals, and their critical reception, all backed with each game’s original soundtrack.
Even the smallest donations help me make these videos! (I record all of my own footage and need to purchase several old games for the footage)
This video in particular took me longer than any project I’ve ever worked on. I put a ton of passion and effort into this documentary – but even so, there are bound to be errors. Please feel free to let me know in the comments if you spot one!
Now sit back, grab a drink and enjoy the ENTIRE History of GTA!
