Vote for Classic GTA on GOG.com

Top Down GTA - General News | @ 08:00 AM MDT | By Ash_735

Even though Grand Theft Auto 1 and Grand Theft Auto 2 are FREE from the Rockstar Classics website (also free on Steam when you purchase the Grand Theft Auto Complete Pack) the games still pose some problems on modern computers, mainly Grand Theft Auto 1 which has issues of save files corrupting almost instant when playing the game via Windows 7, causing a crash when you next boot up the game.

Luckily, the wishlist section of GOG.com has an entry for both of these games (as well as other Grand Theft Auto Games, but since they are not freeware, they would pose a bit more of a rights problem) where users can cast their vote, if enough users cast their vote for a game, the GOG team will then try and pursue getting that game on their website. What does this mean? Well GOG.com patch older games themselves and fix small code problems that make them unplayable on modern operating systems, if they can't fix a problem, they'll bundle an external emulator instead (such as DOSBox or ScummVM). At the very least, they'll include some bonus goodies to download such as artwork, original manuals as PDF's, etc.

So with that in mind, it's worth voting for Grand Theft Auto 1 and Grand Theft Auto 2 to see if we can at least try and get some of these compatibility issues fixed.
