Cult classics such as Midnight Club: Los Angeles and Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis will also be available too.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the more significant title out of the three games, and Carl Johnson’s story is one of the highest-selling games of all time. Rockstar can hold their heads mighty high cause it has five games on that list, four of them are GTA titles with GTA V bringing in more money than any video game, film or book ever has. The fictional setting of Los Santos was first introduced in San Andreas and fittingly served as the setting for GTA V.

You will also be able to download the HD remastered version which features better graphics of course and the achievements if you happen to own the original Xbox version.
