10 years ago the PS2 version was released. The pc edition was published 7 months later. And I'm playing it since summer 2003, incredible, how much time I wasted with games
2 facts from gt wiki:
According to Lazlow Jones, Rockstar began working on GTA Vice City only one month after the release of GTA III.
GTA Vice City only took 9 months to make.
I think that Rockstar, after a successful release of GTA3, was worried about one thing: the game is "too dark" (the city, weather etc.). That's why they started working on a bright VC quickly.
So much games turned recently 10 years. GTA 3, VC, Mafia 1 etc. Only classic games. I don't think someone will remember in 2018, that GTA 4 is 10 years old!
It was obvious, Rockstar releases a mobile GTA:VC. They claimed to release some unseen artworks and other shit too.
