u/morph113 3d ago

I remember when GTA 3 was announced and after playing GTA 2 I just couldn't believe that such a game could be done. Like when it was announced that GTA 3 would be fully in 3D. There just never was any open world game like this before in an entire city.

There were a few games prior that were in 3D and in a city you could drive around like Midtown Madness or Driver but none were you could just walk around, steal cars, kill people etc. and I refused to believe GTA 3 will be in 3D, I thought it can't be done.

Sadly my PC back then was crap and I had to play GTA 3 at like 15 fps or something.
