For me it has to be San Andreas. Best video game in history. PS Apologies for having to group I, II and III together. Only allowed five answers to a poll!

III should have had its own choice instead of the 'Stories' games.

San Andreas. GTAIV was great, but the open world and overall enjoyment wasn't up there with San Andreas. On the flip side, San Andreas hasn't exactly aged well, but it still remains on of my favorite games of all time.

The next one. Each time they up the ante and improve the formula. I see no reason to expect anything different with V. So on topic, right now it's IV.

Went with San Andreas.  I feel it was a great culmination of all the previous GTA games.  IV was just too serious and dull for me, even though I still overall enjoyed it.

Have to go with GTA 4

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is my favorite.

For me, Vice city. I like the whole Scarface feel to it. San andreas is not too far off.

Vice City was my favourite in the series

Easily San Andreas.
#13 Posted by HipHopBeats (2921 posts) -

San Andreas followed by Vice City. The rest were crap but GTAV looks like it may take the title as best in series.

1. Vice City 2. Chinatown Wars 3. Grand Theft Auto III 4. Grand Theft Auto 2 5. Vice City Stories 6. Liberty City Stories 7. Grand Theft Auto+expansions 8. GTA Advance 9. San Andreas 10. Grand Theft Auto IV+expansions I dislike San Andreas but can have fun with parts of it. IV is one of the worst games I have ever played.

San Andreas, I still play it frequently, easily the game I have put the most hours in.

San Andreas

GTA 4 - I spent alot of hours playing this game, and while you can just have fun messing around, I also found the storyline to be one of the best in gaming history! All the other GTA games were good but for me GTA 4 is currently the best in the series by a distance, and hopefully GTA 5 will be even better!

San Andreas. Beat it like six times lol.

#22 Posted by Michael0134567 (28651 posts) -

IV's the best.

#23 Posted by shellcase86 (1934 posts) -

Was IV, but V is taking its place.

#24 Posted by Ricardomz (2329 posts) -

San Andreas > Vice City > IV > Stories Series > III > Old GTA games

But I think GTA V will have a place on 1st or 2nd on my list.

#25 Posted by nooblet69 (5162 posts) -

San Andreas stands out as the one with best gameplay and features / story. Though I do have really good memories of GTA 3 and Gta Vice City. The newest installments were the weakest imo.

Vice City is my personal favorite, I have a lot of great memories of that game. I really hope they go back there in a future game.
#27 Posted by Jimn_tonic (819 posts) -

never played 1,2

3 got a little repetative after a while.

SA had too many useless features to it, as well frustrating rural environments.

IV would probably be real fun to play. Too bad i couldn't see it.

I'd go vith VC

Hard for me to pick, I like San Andreas a bit more for the gameplay additions but like the world/story more in Vice City. From what I've seen I think my favorite will soon be V.

#29 Posted by Granny_Spanked (1326 posts) -

I like III.

#30 Posted by dbtbandit67 (353 posts) -

san andreas, best story, RPG elements


4 was a big improvement in core gameplay, but i couldnt take those accents. the only character in 4 that captured the essence of san andreas was Little Jacob. that guy was a thug, he was down for whatever. but thats 1 guy. in san andreas, everyone was like that
