Remember the first time you set foot in Rockstar Games’ flamboyant and underworld City of Vice? It seems like yesterday, yet twenty years have already passed: Happy Birthday Grand Theft Auto: Vice City!
Today 29 October 2022 is celebrated the 20th anniversary of the launch of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in North Americawhich originally took place exclusively on PlayStation 2. We Europeans were forced to wait a few more days – until November 8, 2002 to be precise – but today is still an anniversary of international historical importance.
Born and developed on the wave of the success of GTA 3, which had the merit of leading the series into the wonder of the third dimension, the story of the rise of Tommy Vercetti on the top of crime has entered the history of video games, just like the bouffant hair, excesses and clothes in the improbable colors of the 80s photographed by Rockstar Games. In any case, for the sake of the Italian-American criminal played by the late Ray Liotta (who passed away in May of this year), the absolute protagonist is Vice Citya metropolis of uncontrolled expansion that extends from the glitz of the center to the ghettos of the suburbs, from the sunny beach to the wet swamps, which according to some rumors would also be destined to be the backdrop for the future Grand Theft Auto 6.
Last year Grand Theft Auto: Vice City returned with the third installment and San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, showing off graphic improvements and updates to the control system that have brought him back to step with the times. In even more recent times it has joined the October game selection for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium.
