    GTA didn't pioneer the game-world as a core mechanic. It was almost a decade behind the curve. The Elder Scrolls has been doing that since the beginning. Take a look at the early TES games like Areana and Daggerfall, both well before even GTA1, and both great, world driven RPG's.

    didn't the first two elder scrolls just have randomly generated environments though? I don't know if that really counts. But then again, I never played the first two elder scrolls games, I just heard somewhere that they were randomly generated.

    What popularized what? If back in the Commodore 64 days, someone would have told me that something like GTA would have been developed, we would have died on that spot in a stroke. We were playing games like Wizard of war, boulder dash and The Giana sisters that was a Mario clone...

    Did anyone else play Body Harvest on the N64? I think its been completely forgotten. It was a huge, time-travelling, sci-fi open world sandbox adventure with tonnes of cars, planes, trucks, tanks, boats, bikes and all sorts. It played awesome and looked like shit. This was in 1998. Interestingly the studio that made it later changed their name to Rockstar North :) Man they need to remake that game...

    GTA did not pioneer good celebrity acting in games. What about the wing commander series. Tom Wilson and Mark Hamill gave those roles a lot of effort and it turned out pretty good. certainly more memorable than any of the roles in GTA3. The best pre-GTA acting probably came from Clive Owen in Privateer 2. the game itself sucked, but Owen did a pretty damn good job.

    Yea I was about to call out Wing Commander. You can Add Malcom McDowell and John Rhys-Davies to the list of celebs in that one.

    Hey now, I actually thought Apocalypse was good. Then again, I was 11.
