With Grand Theft Auto V about to launch, the team behind the original controversial 1997 release has given some insight into what a mess development on the first GTA was.

Once you've watched the above video, it's worth reading this interview on Gamasutra with developer Gary Penn, who worked on GTA at DMA Design, and who shares plenty of added details regarding the game's development.
