Ep. 66: The Grand Theft Auto Evolution

Danny O’Dwyer of Noclip is here to talk about the latest episode in their Greatest Hits series, The History of Grand Theft Auto, Lemmings & DMA Design. Now ‘the’ Grand Theft Auto expert, Danny explains the European version of iconic American stereotypes present in this game compared to differing regional stereotypes found in other titles. We touch on how cultural perceptions play an unexpectedly influential role in game creation, especially when a studio is aiming for the global market. You won’t believe the strange and lengthy catalog of titles which were essential in the timeline leading up to the creation of GTA III.
