This article is about introductory sequences in the GTA series. For the GTA San Andreas machinima, see The Introduction.

Introductions refer to the first missions or cutscenes the players see as a new Grand Theft Auto game is started.

The feature first entered prominence in Grand Theft Auto III; as soon as a new game is started - a cutscene introduces the main characters, and may set up the game's storyline. After the cutscene, the player takes control of the protagonist, and is introduced to gameplay with a tutorial consisting of a very basic set of targets, such as entering a vehicle and heading to the first safehouse.

In contrast, the player has immediate control in Grand Theft Auto 1 and Grand Theft Auto 2, and is free to explore the city. They can then activate any available mission or sub-mission in the normal way - by entering a marked location.

Introductory missions and cutscenes

These are the compulsory first missions which begin at the start of the game since GTA III.

Introductory missions are not always titled. The appearance of mission names can occur partway through the compulsory introductory mission, which can lead to confusion and inaccurate naming of the missions.
