The GTA series is certainly one of the best-selling and most loved of all time. And Rockstar’s GTA games have become such a success due to their great gameplay and attention to detail, with fantastic settings like Liberty City, and simply due to the fact that these games are so immersive and stupendous fun to play.
But which of the GTA games is the best and which the worst? Given that the series has been played and loved by millions, this will surely be a matter of passionate debate, as some gamers may prefer GTA V with its trio of protagonists and city of Los Santos, while others may go for the sprawling greatness of GTA: San Andreas. Here follows a list of all the GTA games, ranked from worst to best.
13. Grand Theft Auto: London 1969
The original GTA was an unexpected hit back in 1997. And Rockstar’s game succeeded despite plenty of bickering from the moral guardians, who were horrified by the game’s wanton violence and complete disregard for save driving… But given what a big hit GTA was, it’s logical that Rockstar would add to it with an expansion pack back in 1999.
This wasn’t particularly impressive overall, but made up for it with its cool London setting and 60’s era music. Plus the violence and mayhem were just as over the top here as in the earlier games, and mowing down a line of virtual Hare Krishnas (while driving on the left) was still as much fun as in the original game… All in all, this might not be the best GTA we have gotten to date, and really did not bring anything new to the table, but was still a taster of great things to come from Rockstar.
Came out on: PC, PlayStation.
