Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is an action-adventure video game developed by DMA Design and published by BMG Interactive. It was first released for MS-DOS in 1997 and later for PlayStation in 1998.

The game is set in three fictional cities: Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas. The player takes on the role of a criminal who must complete various missions to progress through the game. The missions involve tasks such as stealing cars, robbing banks, and assassinating targets. The player can also engage in various activities such as driving taxis, delivering pizzas, and participating in street races.

The game is best know for its controversial violence and mature themes, which led to it being banned in several countries. The original game featured a top-down view, much different from the third-person perspective of later games in the series.

The game was praised for its open-world game play and non-linear structure, which allowed players to explore the cities and complete missions at their own pace. The original game had a soundtrack featuring music from several genres, including rock, hip-hop, and electronic.

Despite its age, the original Grand Theft Auto game is still popular among fans of the series and is considered a classic of the gaming industry. It spawned several sequels and spin-offs, including Grand Theft Auto III, which is credited with popularizing the open-world genre.
