Games like GTA you need to play while waiting for GTA 6

Whether offering fast cars or loaded guns, these are our favorite games like the Grand Theft Auto series

Are you desperate for criminal sandbox capers after the big GTA 6 leak? Then ease the wait for Rockstar's next smash with our favorite games like GTA... 

Rockstar's other megaton franchise is more mature and mournful than GTA, but the two series share a lot of the same DNA. Be it similar shootouts or an impeccable eye for detail.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

One of the most gloriously silly open-world games around. Rico's sandbox revels in chaos, mainly by giving players a ridiculous amount of grappling hook-based freedom.

Just Cause 4

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Remember the “Life Invader” mission from Grand Theft Auto 5? Watch Dogs 2 is essentially that, but blown up to the scale of an entire game that spans San Francisco.

Watch Dogs 2

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

A sleeper hit from 2012, Sleeping Dogs feels like a Grand Theft Auto game dressed in the garb of a classic Bruce Lee film. The driving feels flimsy, but the crunching melee encounters are superb.

Sleeping Dogs

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

A cult gem with a killer eye for small details. Where GTA 5 has tennis, yoga and stock brokering, Yakuza 0 offers karaoke, pool, arcades, bowling, dancing, gambling, and even wrestling.

Loved Grand Theft Auto 5's legendary heists? Payday 2's brutal form of frenzied bank robbing is going to be right up your cash-pilfering alley.

Payday 2

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

This reboot may not be the GTA 5 contender we hoped it would be, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of silly thrills to be had in Santo Ileso.

Saints Row (2022)

PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One
