Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, also referred to as just Vice City and GTAVC, is the second game in the GTA III era. Although it was released after GTA III, it was set 15 years earlier.

GTA Vice City is set in Vice City, Florida (USA) in 1986. It concerns the exploits of protagonist Tommy Vercetti as he rises to criminal power in the city. Designed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games, it debuted in North America on October 27, 2002 for PlayStation 2 and quickly became the best-selling video game of the year. As of July 2006, GTA Vice City is, in the American market, the best-selling PlayStation 2 game of all time. GTA Vice City also appeared on the Japanese magazine Famitsu's readers' list of 100 all-time favorite videogames in 2006. Following this success, GTA Vice City saw releases in Europe, Australia and Japan, and became available on PC and Xbox. Later, Rockstar Vienna packaged the game with its predecessor, GTA III, and sold it as the Grand Theft Auto: Double Pack for Xbox. More recently, a prequel to GTA Vice City was made: GTA Vice City Stories. It uses a tweaked version of the Renderware game engine used by GTA III, and similarly presents a huge cityscape, fully populated with buildings (from hotels to skyscrapers), vehicles (cars, motorcycles, boats, helicopters, and planes) and people.
