I have recently bought a copy of GTA 3 for my PC and cannot get it to work. I have tried all the compatibility settings and nothing is happening. Sometimes, I get a black screen for a few seconds but that is about it.
I run both GTA IV and V and some older EA games from 2008 works fine running under Win 10 Pro. There are games from 2003 to 2008 that employ SafeDisc or certain versions of Securom DRM, rendering hundreds of old disc-based games potentially unplayable without complex workarounds. Games which used these forms of DRM range from Grand Theft Auto 3, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 to the original The Sims.
