La fuente del juego en red GTA (Grand Theft Auto).

YES! IT IS!
Story behind it:
the author (Ray Larabie) was a worker at RockstarGames, the company behind Grand Theft Auto. He based his font on the letters used for the show 'The Price Is Right'. Later he used it for the Grand Theft Auto III logo. Since then it has been used for all the GTA logo's, from GTA III to GTA Chinatownwars...

For those of you looking for an improved version with more/better accents etc: Ray Larabie has allowed me to rework his fonts and offer them with a (very generous) commercial license.
So if you need a professional quality Unicode OpenType or TrueType version of this font with a multilingual and expanded character set - you will find it here:

I think this is the font used on HGTV's "Curb Appeal" tv show!!

It obviously came from "The Price Is Right" tv game show on CBS starring "Drew Carrey" (Formally Bob Barker). Come on down your the next contestant on the price is right!

It was popularized by the Price is Right but was available in the 1970s from the Dan X Solo photo-typesetting service under the name Pinto Flare. Canada Type also did aversion called Jazz Gothic.

When I install this font and use it, some of the letters has long flicks, For example, when I type a "L" the lower part of the "L" kind of underlines the next letter. How can I get rid of these flick things?

If your application has an option to turn off ligatures or "standard ligatures" that will stop the "flares". If you're using an Abode app, it's in the OpenType menu on the text formatting palette.
