So What's the Best 'GTA' Game? Here's Our Series Ranking

Rockstar Games / ONE37pm

No one ever expected the simple little top-down criminal simulator known as Grand Theft Auto to morph into one of the biggest gaming franchises of all time. Once Rockstar Games and DMA Design (now known as Rockstar Games Limited) put out Grand Theft Auto III back in 2001, the world was never the same soon after. Third-person, open-world games pretty much got the template from Rockstar Game's magnum opus and Rockstar Games earned its reputation as a highly esteemed publisher/developer. Since GTA III's monumental launch, the series has continued growing and evolving as a series and a genre trendsetter. But the question that's always asked by longtime fans is this one - "What is the best GTA game?" Stay with us as we attempt to answer that question by ranking every mainline console and handheld entry in the series.
