Grand Theft Auto III now on iOS  photo



Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Grand Theft Auto III is now available on iOS for $4.99. The game that popularized the sandbox craze is regarded as a classic these days, and while later GTA games would replace the silent Claude with increasingly complete protagonists, let's face it, we all love Claude. 

More than a straight port, GTA III for iOS has updated graphics, with better looking characters and vehicles as well as a coat of HD paint. 

It's amazing to think that a game once considered a huge, ambitious project is now available to download onto a mobile phone as if it's no big deal. It's a shame so many "hardcore" gamers are against iOS, because things like this are breathtaking when you step back and think about it.

People aren't concerned enough that real life Trevor from GTA V is hauling a body around

Grand Theft Auto V's Trevor was a psychopath, the likes of which no one would want to run into on the streets. But, when most of these people come across him trying to stash a body, they don't seem appropriately concerned. At least no one actively tries to help him, I guess.more
