Yeah when I was younger and vice city came out I bought the soundtrack collection. Then san andreas came along and I liked the country music and 90's rock and on gta 4 original I only seemed to like san juan sounds but when tbogt was out there was better music.
GTA Vice City and Vice City Stories - Got me into music from the 80s (even Disco). GTA San Andreas - Got me liking some country songs and classic rock. GTA IV - Got me interested in Eastern European type music, also got me to investigate further into the many songs by The Who, Genesis and Queen. (The Seeker, Mama and One Vision to name those pivotal songs).
