Cast as an orphan taken in by the Heroes' guild of Albion, players were treated to an action RPG which gave dungeon crawling and spell-casting an added moral dimension.</p> <p>Saving bullied children or rescuing wanderers lost in caves meant that your reputation as a hero was only matched by your dazzlingly charming good looks. Villagers would swoon in admiration and butterflies and rainbows would spring forth at your every step. Behave like Darth Maul on steroids and your features would come to reflect your actions – and people would, unsurprisingly, flee at the sight of your red eyes and devil horns.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/fable-screenshot_0.jpg?1370437741" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_440.png?1370437741" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Grand Theft Auto III (2003) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Jealous Xbox owners had to wait two years to get their eager mitts on GTA III after its initial PlayStation 2 release, but it was worth the wait – and not just because the Xbox release featured graphical improvements over its PS2 counterpart. The first 3D title of the Grand Theft Auto series gave players a sandbox in which they could cause untold pandemonium and chaos, from blowing up a mountain of stolen cars to wreaking havoc with heavy weapons in epic shoot outs with the law.</p> <p>When you weren’t too busy having fun with the business end of a baseball bat, you could work your way up through the ranks of the criminal underworld in the main storyline. Despite its silent protagonist, GTA III's plot was gripping enough to keep you coming back for more, as you attempted to get your own back at your girlfriend Catalina – who shot you and left you for dead after a bank robbery. Ouch.</p> <p>GTA III recently celebrated its 10th birthday – check out our <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/apps-and-games/gaming-flashback/gaming-flashback-%E2%80%93-grand-theft-auto?page=0,0" target="_self">GTA flashback</a>.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/gta3_07_0_0.jpg?1370437741" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_1_380.png?1370437741" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The success of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic wasn’t just due to the fact that it was a Star Wars RPG (and therefore the ultimate dream of nerds everywhere).
