To rank such awesome games is a challenge for sure. I've not played the 2D games so I'll leave those out.

If I was to rank them based on how good I think they are I would say;

1 - San Andreas
It built and refined upon the concepts and ideas of the III & VC, expanded the game world dramatically and provided, at the time, an ungodly amount of content and depth to the world. It was arguably the best from a technical perspective to at that point and for me represents by far the most diverse and fun entry of the series.

2 - Vice City
I do feel this is perhaps the most keenly balanced and tightest of the III era GTA's and I think this had one of the best story's and cultural take. Personally it's my favorite as it was my first GTA game, introduced me to the 80's (which I now love) and Tommy was such an awesome character. Only the finest of margins seperate this and SA in my mind.

3 - Stories
These games were very good games, on PSP they were technically impressive. However they were rough compared to III, VC & SA and lacked that creative magic.

4 - Chinatown Wars
Like the stories game's it was really good, particularly for DS. Again, narrow margins separate it from Stories. My main issue with it being it didn't feel enough like a GTA game.

5 - Advance
A solid game, let down by a few to many niggles. Worth playing but flawed. Not a high point for GTA but a fun ride.

6 - IV
I hate this game. Don't get me wrong it is a very good game, but it has too many flaws to match the high standards of other more illustrious entries, lacks content and depth, has a bland aesthetic and in the name of realism they sucked out the fun completely. The Episodes went someway to rectify this and were better but in my opinion it was too little to late. It never truly felt like a GTA game - and that to me was the biggest problem.

I imagine V is going to take over at no.1 soon though. it looks stunning.

I highly recommend Grand Theft Auto III. That's the one that really revolutionized things.

IV>SA>VC>III

Never played the portables or the top downs.  Also, why do people consider TLAD or TBOGT their own games?

So they can find a reason to bash IV, the pitiful lot of them.

1. GTA IV. Most underrated GTA game.
2. GTA VC. Most popular GTA game.
3. GTA SA. Most overrated GTA game.
4. GTA VCS. Underrated gem.
5. GTA III. The godfather of today's open world games.
6. GTA LCS. Didn't play it much to judge it fairly, but it can be considered an improved version of III.
7. GTA CW. played the free mobile version, and it looks like the best 2D GTA yet. (IMO)
8. GTA II. Fun game.
9. GTA I never played it.


10. GTA Advance. Horrible game.



AND THE WINNER IS........!


69. GTA V. WORST GAME I EVER PLAYED! I'M ON SECOND MISSION AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE GAME IS A MASSIVE PILE OF sh*t! IT CHANGED IV'S DRIVING, WHICH IS BEST EVER!!

OH, RIGHT....I USED TO SAY THAT TO IV....


Number 69 is a GTA SA fanboy response to V.... i can see it now. suicidal.gif

I've played them all.. People are going to criticize me for ranking GTA 4 above San Andreas but its my opinion and you guys should let it slide. Games get better and I see that with rockstar. So my list basically shows rockstars improvement.

1. TBOGT (.......)
2. GTA 4 (This was GTA's blowup in my opinion, it's in my opinion rockstars greatest gta. The story, graphics, guns, effects, vibrancy of the city. Yes it did have its downfalls but so does every game.)
3. San Andreas (This and GTA 4 can be debated)
4. Vice City Stories ( A better VICE City without the Mafia feel and more features)
5. Vice City (This game is a great game but people overrate it. Yes the protagonist was awesome, the colors, the music, cars, mafia feel, gameplay, and sounds but this game is a solid 5 on my list sorry)
6. Liberty City Stories (Great story, loved the mafia feeling, one of my favorite PSP games back in the day.)
The garbage game line------------------
7. TLAD (Honestly got bored after the first 3 missions)
8. GTA 3 (Crap game compared to the others, LCS was better)
8. GTA Chinatown Wars (Sigh...... Why is there a DS Gta anyway)
9. GTA 1 (The reason is in the name)
10. GTA 2 (It's just as bad as 1)
11. GTA Advance (A gta for the GB Advance that looks worse that GTA 1 and 2 is unacceptable)

7.Vcs - 8/10
8.San Andreas - 8/10
9.Chinatown Wars - 6/10

i have not played the ps1 originals in like 12 yrs so it would be unfair to rate them and never played Advance. And off topic i predict that V Will slip nicely in between Iv And Vice city on my list.

I cannot take anyone seriously who puts Advance over IV . That is just dumb and retarded .

From favorite to least favorite


1. Liberty City Stories 9/10
2. Vice City 8/10
3. III 7.5/10
4. Chinatown Wars 8/10
5. Vice City Stories 7.5/10
6. San Andreas 8/10
7. The Lost and The Damned 7.5/10
8. IV 6/10
9. Ballad of Gay Tony 5/10



If Red Dead Redemption were a GTA game, it would fit in between LCS and VC, that was one of the best games I have ever played. I think GTA V will reach higher on my list than it's predecessor did.

I'll do the ones I've played.

1. GTA SA - 9/10
2. GTA III - 8/10
3. GTA IV - 8/10
4. GTA CW - 7/10
5. GTA VC - 7/10
6. GTA TBoGT - 7/10
7. GTA TLAD - 5/10
8. GTA ADV -4/10
9. GTA II - 3/10

(Haven't played the first, either of the Londons, or either of the Stories. Ratings are based on how much fun I got out of the games, mostly longevity. I played GTA II as that free download from rockstar, I've heard it's different than the originals. On my scale 5 is average, 2 is bad, and 8 is great.)
