Nintendo Gamer's Craig Owens celebrates the forgotten father of open-world gaming

You probably haven't heard of it, but there's this series on non-Nintendo formats that's been causing a bit of a stir. It's called Grand Theft Auto, and if our amateur sleuthing is anything to go by it's set to be more than a little controversial.... read more

Great read; I loved this game, mostly for the element of discovery you felt in exploring the world and opening up new areas. It did get quite hard later - although there was a rather handy kill-all-bugs-on-screen button cheat if I remember rightly.

Would love to see a high-def remake some day.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that found this game so difficult! Borrowed it from a mate (in exchange for Ocarina) and just couldn't get into it because of the unrelenting difficulty level - funny how older games tried their absolute best to not let you complete them :D

you know I have this wierd thing where it doesn't matter what you're saying - as soon as you mention 'N64' I keep thinking 'SNES' - and I get confused thinking 'wow was this on SNES - I must have played on...'

Body Harvest, great game! Back when Rockstar North were still DMA & not too long after their Lemmings games. Hunter for the Amiga pre-dates it though as the open world inspiration for GTA.

Other than State of Emergency, has Rockstar ever made a bad game?!

Such a great game. Remember spending hours and hours playing it. Nothing has come close to it since. Remember finding out that if you had played on the easy mode you couldn't finish the whole game.

"Because people who play on Easy, apparently, don't deserve to play entire games."
It could be worse. If I had it my way they wouldn't be allowed to play games at all. And in severe cases of gaming inadequacy their hands would be chopped off.
