Can GTA overcome Red Dead? Here are the best Rockstar games from the legendary studio.
Essentially creating the modern 3D open world template as we know it, this transformative sandbox is the most influential game Rockstar has ever made.
A game of almost obscene scale. Vastly bigger than both GTA 3 and Vice City combined, Rockstar managed to cram an entire US State onto PS2.
Completely reworking the original trilogy’s car handling and shootouts to feel weighty and authentic for the PS3 and Xbox 360 generation, this is a terrific (if gloomy) GTA.
The ultimate blend of style and substance, GTA will never land on a more perfect setting than this '80s-set, Miami-inspired sandbox paradise.
This is a phenomenal, fabulously realised version of Sergio Leone’s Wild West. Vast, funny, while often sad, this cowboy sandbox produces shootouts sharper than almost any GTA.
Perhaps the prettiest AAA game of all time is also one of the all-time great open worlds. This Old West epic is as lovingly polished as it is ludicrously detailed.
Honestly, GTA 5 could be the best game of all time. An inventive, devilish and awesome open world that plays out like a tongue-in-cheek version of Michael Mann’s Heat, this is Rockstar's G.O.A.T.
