I've been a longtime fan of the GTA series since its early days in the late 1990s. Being a Rockstar fanatic for such a long period of time, I've been blessed with the pleasure of being able to watch GTA grow from a basic top-down player to a three-dimensional work of action-packed art. Grand Theft Auto IV, as of now, is definitely the best title in the GTA series for multiple reasons, which involve its impeccable graphics, sounds, storyline, gameplay and several other key factors. First off, the setting, Liberty City, based on the illustrious New York City, is phenomenal. Rockstar did an incredible job of capturing the real beauty of New York City and reforming it in their own virtual world. The crime life in Liberty City is also based on New York City's underworld as well. From the drug cartels to the mob families, Rockstar has designed each group of crooks and convicts perfectly with major detail in their speech, gestures, beliefs and actions. As far as protagonists go, none get more interesting than Niko Bellic. Niko has an amazing background story that makes GTA IV such an exciting game to play. All in all, Grand Theft Auto IV is a genuine masterpiece and an instant classic that deserves a score 9.5 out of 10.0.
