Grand Theft Auto DNA, part 2: the art of sandbox gaming

Grand Theft Auto DNA, part 2: the art of sandbox gaming

Editor's Note: In part 1 of Grand Theft Auto DNA, we explored how vehicles and driving physics evolved over the GTA series. Today, we discuss the role of sandbox environments like Liberty City and San Andreas.


Playing a Grand Theft Auto game is a lot like observing an ant farm. The AI-controlled citizens of Rockstar North's worlds drive around, obey traffic laws or blow red lights, loiter on the sidewalk to panhandle and gab with friends, and throw fisticuffs after getting into a fender bender at the intersection of Columbus and Jade. I've spent hours in each GTA sandbox just driving around, marveling at how alive each world feels.

Grand Theft Auto DNA, part 1: driving evolved

Grand Theft Auto DNA, part 1: driving evolved

Editor's Note: In part 1 of our Grand Theft Auto DNA, we dissect the driving system in GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA 4 to understand how driving evolved over the course of those series, and how it should work in the upcoming GTA 5.


In August 2001, Sony's PlayStation 2 celebrated its first birthday with little fanfare. More a glorified DVD player than a hot-ticket game machine, the PS2 lacked a system seller, industry jargon for a game so popular that gamers plunked down hundreds of dollars on a console just to experience that one game. Two months later in October, Rockstar North filled the void with Grand Theft Auto 3, an open-world romp where players could hijack cars, splatter pedestrians, treat traffic jams like impromptu destruction derbies, and wage crime sprees.

Grand Theft Auto V vs. San Andreas: trailer comparison

Grand Theft Auto V vs. San Andreas: trailer comparison

It's been over seven years since Rockstar put San Andreas on the digital map. And like the Hollywood denizens parodied in Rockstar's games, the city only looks better with age. YouTube user CreativityZone has recreated the Grand Theft Auto V debut trailer entirely in the San Andreas engine, and it gives us a good idea of how far technology has come.

Little may be known about the upcoming sequel (you can read our theories here), but one thing is very clear: this is a much, much prettier game.
