This isn't the most epic of finds in recent GTA news, but it's something for the hardcores.

A developer at DMA designs called Gary Penn mentioned recently that the GTA 1 was "almost canned" due to the poor quality it was in. He explained that "it was awful, it was too sim-y". it was unstable and had many bugs. He then went on to explain that it wasn't until they cranked up the police AI through experimentation that they really found the key ingredient which has sustained the GTA seires to this day.

Read the full story at Gamasutra here.

So, what did you think? Was the original GTA a hit or a miss for you? Was it sim'y or did it make you a hardcore fan? Discus it in the comments below or the Grand Theft Auto forums!

I absolutely loved the original GTA, even then I knew it was 'something different'.

I never had the pleasure of trying it. How did it turn out? Was it something special + full of bugs?

I'm glad they didn't scrap it...

I can't download it in the U.K. Rockstar said:

I have not tried to download it yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if I got a similar message.

We all have to move the US. That's where every large digital entertainment company is based and they discriminate users in other countries. When you live outside the US, you will sooner or later be forced into piracy.

demon, you know he's sensitive about his eyes! Now you've reminded him of when he lost them whilst queuing for GTA1. The left eyelid still has Biro pigmentation like a shoddy tattoo from a back street piercing/sex shop.

On a lighter note, i still have my ps1 copy of GTA right here!

I'm deaf too, I can't hear what I say. And since I can't hear what I say I take no responsibility for what I say.

@Treefitty - Did you mean a picture of my GTA 1 or a picture of Marney's disfigurements?
I can take a pic of GTA1 if you want.

Windows ease of access voice narrator?
online demonactivity 1262 Days Ago
What is that?
online DuPz0ractivity 1262 Days Ago
It's for disabled people who have problems hearing or seeing things. It has a Steven Hawkin-esc voice narrator when you highlight any text. ease of access also allows you to magnify the screen so text is as big as the screen it self! lol
