Top Ten Grand Theft Auto Games


The Top Ten

1 Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

I played Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, Grand Theft Auto 4 and this one is by far the best in the series. It has the best gameplay, best story, best soundtrack. Only thing that is not the best is the graphics but who cares gameplay is where it is at!

Best Game ever! I have it a version of San Andreas Copland 2006 which has way more better cars like bmw, benz, audi, ferrari, porsche Aston Martin, Chevrolet, Dodge, Chrysler, Way more awesiome

Heaps more space than all the other GTA games!, best game ever! - dragon13304

3 Grand Theft Auto Vice City

I love the originals.
Vice City was definitely the BEST.
I miss running over blonde chicks..... - Celestius

This one is the best of all grand theft auto games. I like this very much I like the cars in and the missions everything is best in it. San andreas is also fine.. - anubhavkanotra

Better missions than others. Not the best map compared to san andreas but its still an excellent game

Yes some of the missions were too easy, and yes the AI were dumb at times and sure it lacks the massive scope of the successors (hell the map was smaller than Grand Theft Auto III's and there were less gangs). Despite these things, Vice City is my favourite. I love the setting (80's Miami-vice inspired city), it has a complex but cool story with a badass voiced protagonist, an awesome art style that's colourful and distinctive, the gameplay is very classic-Grand Theft Auto and the graphics have necessary improvements where vital. Also, this hands down has the best soundtrack in the series for me (made me a fan of 80s music).

4 Grand Theft Auto IV

This game was amazing. It pleased gamers and people who aren't even into video games. The characters are outstanding! However, some where a little weird like Little Jacob, but still had much better alternatives. This game actually has my favorite Grand Theft Auto protagonist, Niko Bellic. His character kills me! He's able to be a total badass with a sad backstory, yet still be very humorous. The story is one of the best, it keeps you hooked like most Grand Theft Auto games do. The only thing bad I could find with this was the soundtrack. It had some good songs like Run to the Hills. It's a shame I've only heard it like, once. Liberty Rock Radio was sorta a let down, but if that's the only flaw I'm perfectly satisfied! This game is a masterpiece and deserves its spot as number 1 on the list.

Rating doesn't matter is Grand Theft Auto 4 the best game for ps3 or 360 no but san adreas is the best game for ps2

No no this actually the worst Grand Theft Auto ever. Theme song sucked it sounded more like a gay ass porno music. Story is overrated, boring, predictable and is least likeable in the series and atmosphere was dull and uninteresting. Controls are even worse than the first Mario game. It is impossible to turn the car without tripping over. I hated the game's boring, gray atmosphere and realism sucks. Niko is a moron. And the fanboys are the worst. They call this is the best because it is realistic which is the stupidest reason ever heard. Realism doesn't make a game better. Infact it wasn't even realistic. Such a dumb game. It is the most overrated trash ever made. This game is just a complete failure.

In my opinion, Grand Theft Auto IV is better than Grand Theft Auto V. While Grand Theft Auto V had the best graphics and a lot of great content, this game did what I actually wanted in a video game. I wanted to escape my reality and enter a whole new world where I get to live my criminal fantasies while having a life. Niko is a great protagonist too. I always loved using the phone and being able to go into police stations. Grand Theft Auto V may have a bigger world and better looking visuals, but Grand Theft Auto IV had style. - Daviddv0601

5 Grand Theft Auto III

Grand Theft Auto has a reputation of bad influence and drugs, violence etc. When ever some kid gets in trouble people always think Grand Theft Auto, well this is where that reputation started. GTA and GTA 2 were just car games, but this is where it all began right here, a legend in its own name and king and father of all violent games. - roblist

This Grand Theft Auto brings back so many memories. It's straight to the point meaning no boring side missions and other stuff like that, that the newer Grand Theft Auto games have. It's easy to memorize the whole layout of the city and the missions require some thinking and have many many different strategies at beating them. In my opinion it's not the best Grand Theft Auto but, definitely needs to be raised up in the rankings.

For me its my favourite awesome missions and also we should give credit to rockstar for having a big jump in the
Series I have played sa and vc and I think it deserves to be number 3 and a good little countryside too after you have done a drop in the ocean every district in unlocked
After thet you can just spawn cars and guns and murder people

Very Nostalgic, It's hard to find Mr. Whoopee but the wait is worth exploring around the city, and looking around at the sights. *Better carry a gun with you though if you don't wish to die by the Leone Gangs, Triads, or the Cartel* The Leone gang are just A*sholes, two shotgun blasts and your car is either in flames or blowing up before you can get out.*

8 Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony

The game was very awesome.. The missions it had were too interesting and fun filled.. Its short but the fun and action in the gameplay is too good to be true... A MUST PLAY GAME

Awesome story it is the best Grand Theft Auto I have played in a long time good expansion to Grand Theft Auto 4 another awesome good game please get this awesome game please buy it

Best part about TBOGT is the nightclubs because you can do more fun stuff including champagne drink-off, dance with people and earning money while managing the club! Another part is they got great action including attacking a yacht and chasing Ray Bulgarin's jet while on bike!

I like this more than the original Grand Theft Auto IV

9 Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars


Insanely underrated. Very, very easily the best game on iPhone for hardcore gamers. Everybody hates this game only because it's top down after a half dozen 3D games. How this is below Grand Theft Auto 1 & 2 is beyond me.

Simply the best Grand Theft Auto experience. Beautiful integration with the DS touchscreen capability coupled with a back-to-roots gameplay style makes this the top Grand Theft Auto title.

Best Story in the franchise. - pratham2025

Graphics and music in this game is great! When I was 3 I played with my cousin Grand Theft Auto 2 in PS1. I was played Grand Theft Auto 1, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV but that legendary game is a classic and my favorite game. :)

My first Grand Theft Auto game... Always loved it.

A very popular mode on Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto 2 is a good game it must be the 10 th

12 Grand Theft Auto: Online

Not good all players do on there is kill others for no reason and grief other players and hack because they suck at the game - XxwileyxX38

Set a bar on what can be done with a multiplayer game on a previous-gen console.

Great game, has some glitches, and hackers, but overall it's pretty good

Awesome best multiplayer game after Minecraft

14 Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City

This ones is a interesting game! '

15 Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned
16 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Remastered

He story and characters alone make this my favorite Grand Theft Auto game. However the gameplay, open world, and graphics add something greater that I've never experienced in a Grand Theft Auto game. Even the writing for this game is hilarious and entertaining. The pacing was great and I was rarely bored.

Most incredibly for me though was the fact that the game made me CARE about the characters. What would happen to them, how all of their stories would play out, and whether they would stay true to their "friendship" or whether they would follow down the path of betrayal and murder (like most Grand Theft Auto plots have). Happily that wasn't the case.




I played Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto Vice City, Grand Theft Auto 4 and this one is by far the best in the series. It has the best gameplay, best story, best soundtrack. Only thing that is not the best is the graphics but who cares gameplay is where it is at!

There was only going to be one winner, and this game deserves to be number 1. Grand Theft Auto 4 obviously has the better graphics but that's what makes this game special. This had such a good storyline, decent music and a ton of space to mess about with if you got bored or completed the story.
