As this weekend reportedly marks the 10 year anniversary of the launch of Grand Theft Auto 3, Rockstar Games have compiled a neat little celebratory video to mark the occasion and help us remember that significant point in the history of open-world action games and the series' first foray into the 3D space.

Watch the trailer embedded below or click here for the HD option.

Further, IGN have an interesting interview with Rockstar's Dan Houser that looks back at that point in video game history to talk about some of the challenges they faced and how the game based on a fictional version of New York City was affected by the September 11 2001 terrorism.
It was a very strange time, but we were very close to 9/11, far closer than the vast majority of people, and therefore I believe we were capable of making sensitive judgments about what was appropriate and what wasn't appropriate.

I think one mission got removed. There was a non-interactive jumbo jet, just to give some life to the sky, that looked like it could pass through a building. That got adjusted, and a few lines of radio dialogue in the talk show. We were really very sensitive to stuff though because we'd watched on our doorstep, you know?
Hit up the full interview for all the goods.

A special 10th Anniversary addition of GTA 3 is due on iOS and Android mobile devices later this year.

So do I.

Though I loved the GTA3 series (GTA SA being my fav, finished it a few times), but GTA 4, there was just something about it I didn't like.

Heh I can remember when this was released and being amazed at the depth of the game world, not to mention the difference you could see it would usher into gaming. Good gaming times.

I am playing GTA IV as I am typing this. I like doing random stuff like starting fights with random people and getting chases by police on the beach.
