What Grand Theft Auto Game best represents Grand Theft Auto?

The ironic thing is GTA IV’s the most like GTA III when it comes to atmosphere, tone, gameplay etc more than any other GTA game.

 

To me GTA IV felt like it went back to the “roots” of the the series whilst simultaneously freshening it up for the modern era.

 

A soft reboot if you ask me.

Weirdly enough, I feel the GTA III style atmosphere and tone works better when the game feels more cartoony in it's character movements and since of weight and graphics. Same applies to the first two driver games along with Urban Chaos as well. Sorta sets a balance for me.

Too subjective to answer. Everyone’s idea of what GTA should be is vastly different.

GTA III of the main games, honestly.

Vice City's story structure is too reliant on asset building missions to be representative of the whole series IMO. San Andreas, IV and V on the other hand are too divisive, fans of those games are always fighting with each other, lol.

👍🏻. GTA III is Grand Theft Auto. All the others are a version of it - V barely so.

It is definitely the closest but to me it still had something missing - a little magic that III had. I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Sorry just had to put that out there.:p

 

In all seriousness I get what your're saying. That "magic" GTA III generated is something I feel may games just don't have however with GTA IV I feel it's a refinement of the vision R* had for GTA III, but with some things they weren't able to do at the time due to technology limitations and stuff like that.

GTA San Andreas. I think it's the GTA that comes to mind for most people when you mention the name "GTA" alone. 

 

I believe R* perfected their vision for GTA in San Andreas. III set the tone. VC expanded it and SA perfected it. That's how I feel I guess. Though all of them are unique in some way to me.
