Grand Theft Auto III
It all starts in Liberty City. With the revolutionary freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, Grand Theft Auto III puts the center of the criminal underworld at your fingertips ? if you have enough guts to take it.

Originally released on October 22nd, 2001, Grand Theft Auto III first pioneered Rockstar Games? approach to building highly immersive and detailed, fully 3D open worlds, delivering unprecedented freedom and nonlinear gameplay combined with rich, cinematic storytelling.

Within the living, breathing world of Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto III also elevated the series? now signature radio stations, each with a thoughtfully curated playlist and DJ host to match.

The highest-rated PlayStation 2 game of all time, Grand Theft Auto III was also the number one selling video game on consoles the year of its release ? ushering in a new era of gaming and gaming fans, catapulting the series into the center of culture in the process.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Welcome to the 1980s. From the decade of big hair and pastel suits comes the story of one man’s rise to the top of the criminal pile. Grand Theft Auto returns with Tommy Vercetti?s tale of betrayal and revenge in a neon-soaked tropical town full of excess and brimming with possibilities. Delivering heightened levels of immersion, detail and humor in its satirical take on ’80s America, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City debuted a fully-voiced protagonist in Tommy Vercetti, the ability to build your criminal empire through property and business ownership across the sprawl of the city, and one of the most iconic fully-licensed soundtracks in the history of games, and was the highest-selling game of its original release year of 2002.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Five years ago, Carl ?CJ? Johnson escaped the haze of Los Santos, San Andreas…a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs, and corruption. Now, it’s the early 90s. CJ?s got to go home – his mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart, and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of cops frame him for homicide, forcing CJ on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets in the next iteration of the series that changed everything.

The best-selling PlayStation 2 game of all time, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was the first in the Trilogy to feature three distinct, wholly featured cities, each with a lush, natural environment separating their borders. In addition to the now standard behind-the-wheel shooting of the series, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas introduced in-depth character progression, making it possible for players to impact CJ?s look and abilities by partaking in certain activities and missions, lending new meaning to their character.

The Music
From the classical motifs of GTAIII?s Double Clef FM and the heavy-hitting drum and bass of MSX; to the melodrama of Vice City?s Emotion 98.3 and quintessential 80s pop powerhouse, Wave 103; to the West Coast rap of Radio Los Santos or Chicago house of SF-UR and debut of hosts such as Chuck D, Axl Rose and George Clinton in San Andreas, the radio stations of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy ? The Definitive Edition deliver the thoughtfully curated and wide-ranging selection of hits and hidden gems.

With more than 200 songs across 29 pioneering radio stations the series has become known for, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy ? The Definitive Edition?s iconic listings match the most recent release of the original versions (from 2014) ? with no new changes, all detailed below.
