The Grand Theft Auto series has sold 385 million units to date, making it the fifth most successful game franchise of all time.

Grand Theft Auto's first game was an arcade top-down crime simulator. 

 The series has since produced numerous standalone games and several remasters of varying quality.

When the game was first released, players were allowed to play as either a cop or a robber.

It was a cartoony, top-down game that lacked the kind of open-world exploration that came later.

The game's success led to the creation of several spin-offs. Several titles have since been released in the franchise.
