Additional info

The game was originally intended to be named "Race N Chase" and was nearly cancelled due to production issues.

The player is free to do whatever he or she wants. The player can gain points by causing death and destruction amid the traffic in the city, or steal and sell cars for profit.

Grand Theft Auto takes place in three primary settings, all of which are modelled on real locales: Liberty City which is based on New York City, Vice City based on Miami, and San Andreas based on San Francisco.

Grand Theft Auto has seven "radio stations", plus a police band track, which can be heard once the player enters a car; however, each vehicle can only receive a limited number of these radio stations.
PC players can remove the CD once the game is loaded and replace it with an audio Compact Disc. The next time the character enters a vehicle, a song from the CD will randomly play.

The cover art for Grand Theft Auto is a photograph of a New York Police Department 1980s Plymouth Gran Fury rushing through the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 56th Street, with Trump Tower in the background of the picture.
