Grand Theft Auto is as synonymous with gaming as Mario or Halo.
The series has spanned many years, consoles, and times, and we’re here to showcase that.
Grand Theft Auto V looks absolutely gorgeous, and more so if we take a step back in time and catch a brief glimpse of how the series has evolved.
Below, you’ll find a short screenshot comparison between the most recent major games, with future comparisons arriving in the coming months as we get closer to release.
The leftmost column is Grand Theft Auto III, the center being Grand Theft Auto IV, and the rightmost being Grand Theft Auto V.
Catch a glimpse of how the series has progressed!

OXCGN’s GTA III 10 Year Anniversary Smartphone/Tablet Review
Another stroll through Liberty City

Much like Hollywood and their need to remake every single ‘classic’ movie within the last two decades, the gaming industry follows a somewhat similar route by re-releasing titles that not only defined a genre but cemented itself as a classic in the gaming industry.
With Halo reaching the 10 year mark since being released, Microsoft/343 Studios has released Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition both in its classic Xbox graphical and revamped Halo Reach graphical glory, allowing gamers old and new to experience a console-defining shooter.
Rockstar however, instead of releasing a game that was already available across every platform, has decided to go the route of releasing GTAIII on mobile and tablets (Check out Rockstars official supported devices website to see if your device made the cut).
This allows an already amazing company to allow people who wouldn’t own a console to experience a game that has been a staple in the open sandbox genre.
But does it translate well enough to smartphones/tablets?

Into The Sandbox:
Is Freeform Gameplay Really The Future?

Complete freedom has always been the holy grail of gaming. Sandbox Gameplay in games such as GTA3 and Crackdown have shown the potential for setting a player loose in a world with nought but their imagination (and usually several dozen guns).
But should we really want our games to tear down their walls and send us out squinting into a blinding world of possibilities?
Is Sandbox gameplay the future . . . ?
