Does anyone know if there are any GTA-style games for the PSP (released or on the way) other than GTA LCS and GTA VCS?

And does anyone know of any other GTA-style games for the PS2 or XBox (released or on the way) apart from these :

GTA 3, VC, SA, LCS, VCS

The Getaway 1 & 2

True Crime LA and NYC

Mafia

The Godfather

I've got an XBox 360 and I'm already planning on getting Saints Row. Basically I love GTA-style games and want more!

If you like the Simpsons at all, there's Simpsons Hit and Run. Don't be fooled by the fact that it's a licensed game, it's actually very, very good. It got an 8.3 at Gamespot.

Mafia is definitely the best GTA-like game out there, in fact, many people (including myself) think it surpasses any of the GTA games due to its depth and great story.....here's the catch, the only version worth getting is the PC version, and you said you're looking for PS2/Xbox/360 games.

You're other best bet is Bully for PS2, which is also by Rockstar.....I'm actually playing through it right now, and I really think its an underrated gem and I'm surprised more people haven't talked about it. It's really a great game with lots of humor, In fact, I'm finding Bully to be as much fun as GTA3 and Vice City, and definitely more fun then San Andreas. I would definitely give Bully a try, and here's hoping they make a sequel.

Yeah I was gonna pick that game up at launch, but stupid Rockstar decided to make it exclusive to the PS2, and my PS2 stopped working like 4 years ago.

I would suggest you check out Scarface: The World Is Yours. It's a surprisingly solid game, and if you like the Scarface/'80s theme, all the better. It's set up almost exactly like a GTA game, and IMO, it's even better than some of those other GTA-style games you've already played.  Definitely better than The Godfather, for one.

Oh yeah I I've got Simpsons, bit of a Simpsons obsessive so had to get that one ;) I know that Mafia is far better on the PC and I'll probably get it eventually (although I've got loads of PC games I never get round to playing), although I'm still gonna go for the PS2/XBox version too. Scarface looks good, might have to get that, maybe for the PSP as well even though opinions vary a bit on that one :P Cheers guys :)

Yeah played the demo of crackdown from xbox live, got to get that one.  The reviews don't look too good for Driver 97, is it any good do you think?

Um yeah Bully's a good one, made by Rocksta, just not as violent (not saying theres no violence) but is really fun.
