Pre-order GTA IV on Steam, get Vice City free


Though Grand Theft Auto IV received universal accolades when it launched earlier this year, we've always been bigger fans of the neon backdrop of 2002's GTA: Vice City. Perhaps it's because it represents a more appealing chapter in our nation's history -- a chapter rife with REO Speedwagon, preposterous hairstyles, and all-night disco coke parties.

Admittedly, it's been quite some time since we visited Rockstar's tropical getaway -- that's why we were excited to hear that Steam is giving Vice City for free to pre-purchasers of the PC version of GTA IV. That's a savings of ten whole dollars, which is almost the exact price of Take it on the Run, REO Speedwagon's greatest hits album. Coincidence? We think not.
