Video game Easter eggs are a common concept in the gaming industry, as a lot of games have one or more hidden away inside them. These Easter eggs can be anything the developer has hidden for inquisitive players to find. Usually it’s a message from the developer, a nod to other games or a pop-culture reference, or just something weird and wacky. In the spirit of Easter, we’re going to have a look at where the concept and term originated.

Easter is upon us and that means that plenty of eggs will be decorated and hunted, and various treats will be consumed. Easter eggs are very common in video games, with most games harbouring one or more. All this talk about eggs got me thinking about where they come from, and so we are going to pay tribute to our five favourite video game chickens.

Ever since I first tried a demo for the original Grand Theft Auto back in 1997; GTA has been one of my favourite video game franchises. Throughout the years I've poured countless hours into the series' many games, and regard it as some of my most enjoyable and best spent video game time. Back in the day I couldn't wait to play a GTA that was set in a vibrant and living open 3D world, and GTAV is the embodiment of my youthful fantasies. The road to where the series is now, however, has been nothing but a great ride - so let's take a look at the evolution of Grand Theft Auto.
