GTA IV. What you wanted to do : Kill people, Steal some vehicles, Go to a strip club, Buy some guns and do some missions. What the game wants you to do : "Let's go bowling!"

GTA San Andreas and iv are the best
Looow Layrs
GTA IV mission to kill Playboy X in order to save his depressing humble just-got-out-of-jail ass friend. Best mission ever, hits me in the feels every time.

*"The last game to use GTA 3 technology was GTA San Andreas"* Now that is where you're completely wrong.

Being an active player of GTA 1 to this day, I feel like you guys at Gameranx didn't quite do it justice. GTA 1 was quite detailed for its' time. Walk signs and stoplights actually direct traffic, ambulances _did_ respond to dead NPCs (and ambulance crew were capable of reviving them back to life), as well as fire trucks responding to destroyed cars and such. Each city had its' own set of vehicles, there was a functioning radio with actual DJs and pretty good original music (the GTA 1 theme song is singlehandedly the best original song in the whole series imo). But the main thing you guys missed was the dimension. It _felt_ 3D. You really can't do it justice from screenshots. There were actual jumps and ramps (many of which required a motorbike to perform, as cars could not ascend or descend steep inclines), and if you jumped from high enough at a fast enough speed, you could get insane air time and land the car with hard damage. But hell, was it fun landing on top of that tree in the park in San Andreas. Car damage was cool, too. The more damage your car took, the worse it perfomed. I hate that they took that out of the subsequent games post-GTA III. Car physics were shit though. Can't push anything out of the way; even with a giant Tanker or Juggernaut you'd still have to dodge cars. And the first GTA did *one* thing better than the rest; traffic. In GTA III onwards, whenever you found a hot Infernus or Banshee, in a few minutes there'd be a bunch of them on the streets. In GTA 1, when you found a rare F-19 supercar, you _treasured_ that little shit, because it could be the last one you'll ever see that week (because GTA 1 lacked an option to save in the middle of a level, which I fucking hate. And you can't store cars, either.)

My favorite mission was the airplane training in gta San Andreas......said no one ever
Landon Blackwell
Gta 4 had the absolute best story ever. Niko Bellic was my bro. Me him and Roman went bowling everyday
Rakeen Aktar
What about liberty city stories and vice city stories?
SSJRhandy
“Title says Evolution of Grand theft auto” *doesn’t include liberty city stories nor vice city stories*
Dror Levi
Gta San andreas 4 ever!!! :D
Lonystal
just Imagine if Gta san andreas had the graphics of gta V.
idon'thave aname
"can you imagine what will happen when GTA 6 comes out" *thinks online only mode, mediocre story, filled with shark cards and hours of grinding*
Erling Kristiansen
Every GTA games ever made has been in 3d. Steering from the skies doesn't mean 2d.
RETRO VALLEY
Hopefully in gta 6 you get to do exercise and you can make your character buff, better clothes and hopefully the campaign is like a family kind of gangsters. And hopefully there are more stores you can go into and more clubs and bars😋 but that’s me comment if you agree
Hosea Ho
hey Niko ! it's Roman . Let's go bowling
TJH

Erika Feria
GTA SA is best btw the beta had cooler things but were cut
Shahkarif100 Gaming
My favourite GTA is GTA IV, and obviously, my favourite mission in the whole GTA franchise is "Three Leaf Clover"
neon9999
GTA 2 had multiplayer, GTA IV wasn't the first...

Youngbl33zy
Gta 6 better use google maps and i better be able to rob my real life house
Nekusa

This is great but it’s not completely accurate, you completely skipped over the ‘stories’ games for no apparent reason, even though they’re perfectly valid and pretty decent.

Heck. Nothing is said about “historical” (Gta: VCS and Gta: LCS), as if there were none (this is not an addition, these are official prequels). Nothing said about Gta:Advance. The lack of useful facts about the game (this is evolution, why in Gta: VC there is no mention of motorcycles or that the main character began to speak, and not just keep silent, like Claude?). Misinformation in the form of "one universe" (universes of different 2D, 3D and HD, if someone did not know) radio stations in the first GTA. No, guys. I would understand if your Russian guys would say it in Russia, but so that yours carry such nonsense? It is very strange. Shame on the authors of this video, seriously, guys. P.S. Do not scold my English)
Exiled Universe
That gta 3 was in first person . I wish it was

I miss sniping a guy in the head, and the head pops off, then blood starts shooting out the top like a fountain. RIP in peace head shot game mechanic. We hardly knew ye.

*My first gta was gta 3. I was 5 years old in kindergarten and i PRAISED my discovery.* *PS* *Rockstar should make more games about the crack epidemic, I wasn’t born yet but those times were like no other!*
Toni!
Anyone remember that insanely difficult mission in Vice City where you use the remote controlled helicopter to detonate the building? Ugh.
Lance Wilson
0/10 no Ryder in thumbnail
PenguinTrashed
Best mission was the wrong side of the tracks
Tom Hull
GTA SA actually had the first multiplayer in the form of a coop mode
Joe
7 will probably be worse than 5 and be a glorified tech demo for beautiful graphics lke gta 4 was lol
Hard Juan
I can always trust in Rockstar, they literally have been making masterpieces for years and improving the industry forward like no other game company
Loud Spirit
Gamerranx :The Game that came after San Andreas is GTA IV Me : You just passed 8 years of my childhood. RIP GTA Vice City Stories, and GTA Liberty City Stories...:'(
TRC 563 Gamez
What about advance, Liberty City stories, vice city stories
amrit singh
All you have to do was follow that damn train CJ !!!
Cole Edits
Correction: They already started working on GTAV BEFORE Episodes From Liberty City released. Conception started a month before GTAIV released. They had other studios assist with TLAD and TBOGT while the main bulk of the studios started planning what was next for GTA and other IPs.
Cao Ang
Going from Niko Bellic to Trevor Philips is a devaluation...
Marco Infante
U forgot GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories...
Vex TM
I loved San Andreas, but GTA 5 is just so good
Ryan Perry
You left Vice city stories off the list, one of my personal favorites. My favorite mission is from that game too, well theres a string of missions where you meet and protect Phil Collin, like the real Phil Collins haha.
Mad Magma
Same old CJ, busta, straight busta

Charles 8777
GTA V was such a true PS3/X360 game back them Hell is insane how they manage to make GTA V for a 8 years old hardware at launch, with only 256MB of System RAM + 256 MB Vram
Lion El Jonson
GTA III: Liberty City GTA IV: Liberty City GTA San Andreas: san Andreas GTA V: San Andreas GTA Vice City: Vice City GTA VI: It only makes sense.
Phoenix Trades
I see a few people mention Liberty City and Vice City stories. Only real og's know you missed Chinatown Wars. For life CJ. For life...
