Ico/Shadow of the Colossus if you count that a series. If not then I like Prince of Persia or Legacy of Kain.

Nothing bests GTA:SA IMO. I loved GTA: VC as well, just driving around in a scooter listening to Flash FM. Good times. Also love Just Cause 2. Another wonderful action adventure game. And loosely fitting this category would be my all time #1 and #2 games - Demons Souls and Dark Souls.

For this you have to never miss the COD and BF. Both are great action-adventure series games for me and lots of the people are fan of this games. COD and BF both are great game as action series and people have enjoyed the great experience at here.

Castlevania- the lore is consistent, the timeline is not convoluted, the music and gameplay are consistently awesome, the graphics are usually awesome(except for that confounded anime phase... I hope the art director got throat punched for that).

Zelda of course.

1. Ocarina is on top of almost every list of best games of all times

2. This series has really proven itself in its long existance. This game its age cant be beaten by any of here mentioned

3. No disappointments. Every game is a gem of it own

4. We are not taking about two or three games which did turn out right by accident.

5. Zelda has sold the most games by far.

Man! There are so many great AAs around. My own favorite is Tomb Raider series but I think GTA SA is also one of the best made games ever.

I'd have to go with the Batman Arkham series. Pretty much flawless.

1. Uncharted series 2. Max Payne series 3. God of War series GTA isn't action adventure in the genre sense, it is more a sandbox/ open world adventure, also COD and BF are clearly FPS. -e- almost forgot, Batman AA and Batman AC were awesome.

Has to be Zelda for me, no other like it, really. Gotta mention Assassin's Creed and the Batman games (Arkham Asylum and City) though, those two were great series as well

Not even close. Those titles are FPS, not action and adventure in the slightest.

Did you seriously just call Final Fantasy an action-adventure series? Really?

Since people are naming FPS and RPG's here, I'm gonna go full retard and say that the best AA series is Civilization...

Now seriously, prolly Uncharted. Assassins Creed, God of War, Zelda, with Uncharted 2 Among Thieves being maybe the best AA title ever made.

I'd definitely have to say the GTA series. Consistently excellent game which are always incredibly fun to play.
