    From what I understand, it originally was being developed under the name 'Race n Chase' as a kind of a birds eye view racing game with cops chasing (like Need for speed, but birds eye) you every once in a while. However, as it developed they didn't think that would suffice so they started adding petty crimes, missions, and then a full crime story, thus is was then renamed to Grand Theft Auto as a more appropriate title.

    Definitely a good change. I love the original GTA.
