One of the most famous series on the gaming horizon, even among those who know little about video games, GTA is more than virtual entertainment. Millions of players around the world enjoy playing different parts of the series. But which one is still the best? In this article, we will list the best games in the GTA series.
GTA – the best of the world bestsellers
Why do we love Grand Theft Auto? For freedom? For the script? For the huge number of possibilities that the game gives us? Most likely, the game received its extraordinary popularity thanks to the open world, which at the time of the release of the third part was a real innovation.
In all parts of the GTA, as well as in about 80% of plot video games and crime films, the same uncomplicated plot is used. The hero falls into the service of an important person. According to the mission’s progress, the character becomes more and more powerful, and the balance of power in relation to the employer begins to shift in favor of our hero. It all ends with the fearful employer betraying or substituting the protagonist, and he has to take revenge.
The top of the best GTA games
The list of the best games include:
- Tekken 7
The Tekken series dates back to 1994 when the first game of the name appeared on arcade machines, and later Sony took the brand under its wing, creating a franchise that now has more than 15 titles. Unlike competing games like GTA, where the plot was just a background with two lines of character history, Tekken demonstrated a complex story from the beginning. Players fight for Tekken 7 ranks, trying to become the best of the best.
- GTA: San Andreas
After the breakthrough of GTA III and the release of the third dimension, Rockstar took a huge step forward in San Andreas. The game not only grew in size (the virtual Los Santos was really huge for its time), but also acquired role-playing mechanics. The protagonist CJ could be modified as you wish: make him a jock, pump up his stamina, put on different outfits, and much more. We’re not talking about cars and weapons: Rockstar added an incredible amount of content to GTA: San Andreas.
- GTA: Vice City
The game faithfully recreates the carefree spirit of the 80s, with a synth-pop soundtrack, vibrant sunshine colors, and azure seaside. The plot of the game, in turn, largely repeated the cult film “Scarface” with Al Pacino in the title role. The final battle at the mansion is undoubtedly a reference to this movie classic. Thanks to its light-hearted and cheerful tone, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has become a favorite for many players, and gamers will still continue to play this classic of the series.
● GTA V
GTA 5 is, without exaggeration, an ideal game. Rockstar has done a lot of work on bugs after GTA 4 and created the largest and most diverse open world in the series. The tone also changed: instead of a dark story of revenge, the players were in for a dashing adventure about a trio of robber friends. The presence of three playable characters at once greatly diversifies the gameplay.
- GTA IV
It was an attempt by Rockstar to make the series more “adult”. This attempt was not successful in everything – freedom of action and the ability to create lawlessness in the open world were sacrificed to gloomy realism. Liberty City appeared as a gray and dirty place in which the Eastern European emigrant Niko Belich – our protagonist – faced the hard-hitting underside of the “American Dream”.
