GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas have finally been ported to Mac. Of course the true GTA trilogy would be GTA1, GTA London and GTA2. I'd love to see Rockstar Games dust off and revive that classic code.
Smallville S09E05 Roulette has a cheesy reference to GTA at about 28 minutes in.
Lois tries to track down the GPS tracker in Oliver's car and finds it parked on a street corner, abandoned. Victoria comes up behind her and claims that it's her car. She tells Lois to back off and when Lois refuses, she attacks. The two fight until Victoria draws a gun and takes her captive.
Victoria: If you're not lost, then get that way. I don't like smudge marks on my car.
Lois: Nice try Vice City, go Grand Theft someone elses Auto. I've sat in that excuse for a front seat enough to know that this car belongs to Oliver Queen.
Victoria: Oh, well if you know Oliver, you know he likes to give gifts. This is one of them.
Ray Liotta, the great actor and the voice of Tommy Vercetti in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 26th of March 2009.
Jimmy Fallon brought up the fact that Ray was in Vice City and here's the transcript:
JF: I love you cause I love your voice, it's so good, cause you know what, I know it from Grand Theft Auto, Vice City. Yeah, so do you get a lot of like fans asking you to say stuff to them.
RL: I did when it first came out.
JF: GET IN THE CAR!
RL: That's right I did do that, cause I never even played the game. Don't you, you can go left, you can go right, if you go left something happens. Cause I remember we would just, there was lots of "Shutup!", "Get out!".
JF: Tommy Vercetti, that was your name. What were some of the things they made you say, shutup is great?
RL: I don't don't know, like "Run oveeer the hooookeeer"
JF: Hahaha, run over the hooker!
RL: "Get the hooker out of the way..."
RL: "Get out of the car"
JF: "Get out of the car!"
RL: It was not nice.
JF: "Get the hooker out of the way!"
JF: "Get out of the car!"
JF: "Alright got my paycheck, alright thank you."
JF: It's a great gig. You've got to be proud of that.
RL: Yeah, I guess.
JF: Do you have a frame of a poster of that in your house?
RL: No, no, actually the only poster I have, and I know a lot of actors, they put their posters in their house and in their office. The only thing, I was really proud of, I have a 10 year old daughter and I did an episode of Spongebob, where I was..."
JF: I think I've seen this episode "Get the hooker!"
RL: No, no (laughing)
JF: It was bad, it got banned in 3 countries.
RL: I was the head of the Bubblegum gang, as I remember but that's pretty close, and I have a poster of that. They sent me a poster that said "Ray Liotta in the Bubblegum gang, the lead Bubblegummer".
JF: That's hilarious.
