Wow , wait :D

You are going fast.Could you tell us in detail a little what is your programming background , which languages do you know how to program into e.t.c.
Any other skills related to game developing you might have?Like , artist , graphics , music/sound e.t.c.
I would suggest looking at this , it is the beginner's section of the site.If you have any other questions post them in here and me and/or other member's of the community will try to answer them to the best of our abilities.

You should begin by learning programming from the ground up, so that you have a solid understanding of how everything works together and how to write the best code. You also need a good grounding in maths and physics if you're going to create realistic games.

Then you should choose whether you are creating this game for PC, Xbox etc. and learn about the platform you have chosen and start creating your game based on the SDKs available for that platform.

You should probably get a team together of artists, sound effects people, level editors, gameplay experts, programmers and testers. Not forgetting to spell check all your on-screen dialog for the game ;)

Then you can put all of this together and create your Grand Theft Auto style game. It's going to take some time though so don't get disheartened part way through.
