"Cute" is not normally a word I'd use to describe Grand Theft Auto...unless it has been miniaturised. Then GTA becomes so adorable you could just eat it up.
Neat, right? You might recall tilt-shift as the primary technique behind the graphics in the latest SimCity, though I'd totally play a GTA in this style too.
