Grand Theft Auto 3 takes the top spot on Yahoo's video game section. I was reading through it, rather appalled by some of the selections, but I know they got at least one right ;] Pretty nice feeling seeing the game that started this community on top of a list such as this one.

Yay for the Grand Theft Auto franchise, but am I the only one who never liked III?

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

It is quite deserving, as GTA 3 did have a big influence when it comes to gaming.

I loved the third one. I mean, after I beat the game I wanted to drive around Portland, that turned out rather difficult. It was epic for when I played it (in 2002.. I was 11, lol.)

I was more interested in playing the second game or waiting for Vice City. That damn mafia was the main reason I didn't like the third game.

Is that list supposed to be a joke? I can't believe Wii Sports was there...what the hell. And Guitar Hero too.
Anyway, I don't really think GTA III deserves being called game of the decade, at all.

Well GTA3 was a pretty cool game, like sherman said when I played it I think I was 11 or 12 too. My first moments playing I remember I went up to some guy in a suit (mafia guy) and just started a fistfight, then he pulled out a gun and capped me lol. It definitely was a groundbreaking type thing.

It's a great achievement sure, but for me not the game of the decade. A nice honour for the development team, one to tell the grandkids about. And I was 13 and a bit, 7 years ago, but then all my friends had the GTA games and they were the same age too. I remember going on tank rampages around the whole city, they really ought to bring that back. Never did get to grips with the Dodo, couldn't fly it at all so didn't get to see the hidden sections in the game.

It's well deserved imo.

It paved the way for the rest of the GTA games and put the series on the map.

GTA III is a good game, I must admit that. But GTA San Andreas, GTA IV and GTA Vice City are way better! Good job GTA III. Hope GTA V becomes the game of the decade for 2010-2020.
