First game of the Max Payne license, the latter will have marked the players by its dark atmosphere and its unique narration. Even though it has aged well, it is still an excellent Rockstar game that you absolutely must have made!
9 – The Bully game released in 2006
While the studio focuses mainly on its other franchises, it still tries a bet with the game Bully. This GTA Like where we find ourselves in the skin of a young Englishman in a boarding school is simply brilliant. If you played it as a student yourself, you probably had a great time playing this game where you can really do anything.The school is huge and in addition to the history of the game, you have to to go to class! Lots of little details of this game make it really funny and nice. In addition to a really cool main story, the game is full of side content that will have you spending hours of fun. It is therefore without question that Bully enters this top. There would also be rumors around a potential Bully 2.
8 – LA Noire released in 2011
After playing the bad guys, Rockstar offers us to play a policeman. But not in just any environment. It is in Los Angeles of the 1950s that we play Agent Cole Phelps. You start out as a simple traffic cop and end up in drug and homicide cases. The progression of the game is really interesting because it is not quite linear. It will change depending on how you tune your surveys. Each story is more fascinating than the last and we take great pleasure in unraveling the mysteries. The post WWII atmosphere of 1950s Los Angeles controlled by gangster Mickey Cohen makes the game even more interesting. Despite some flaws and a little rusty gameplay, LA Noire remains a must have among Rockstar games, and for those interested, LA Noire has been ported to Switch recently.
7 – Max Payne 3 released in 2012
If Max Payne 3 is ranked ahead of the first Max Payne, it’s only because it’s newer and its gameplay is much better. This may be a bad reason, but we preferred to put the gameplay first in our choice. The atmosphere remains very clean and worthy of a Max Payne but it is at the level of the story that the game has been criticized. It is much worse than that of the first opus. Despite everything, it is still possible to play Max Payne 3 in 2020 while playing the first one is a real pain because it is really old.
6 – Grand Theft Auto IV sorti en 2008
First GTA of the new console generation, GTA VI has been able to refresh the license and make it evolve enormously. His story is excellent and the character Niko Bellic very endearing. In addition to that, it is the first time that the adventure takes place entirely in Liberty City (New York). So we discovered a new environment in this game. The switch to the PS3 / Xbox 360 generation also allowed it to have a much better gameplay than its predecessors. The debate around the best GTA in history is still terrible between the fans. While some are not even mentioned in this debate, GTA IV is a serious contender and that is why it is part of this top 10 best games from Rockstar.
5 – Red Dead Redemption 2 sorti en 2018
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game of its own. Awarded for its narration and music the year it was released, it is one of Rockstar’s most beautiful games. He is technically and graphically amazing. And for good reason, Rockstar took almost 10 years to develop it. In this Western atmosphere, you will follow a band of outlaws in the great American West. By playing Arthur Morgan, you will live an incredible adventure in a gigantic open world. In addition to a substantial and endearing main adventure, the game offers a world filled with side activities that are more different than the others. The game has reached such a high level of detail it’s almost indecent. If you haven’t already, go for it now!
4 – Grand Theft Auto Vice City sorti en 2002
Soon 20 years since Vice City came out on our consoles. And although it has aged well, it remains intact in the hearts of the players. He is considered by many to be the best GTA in history to this day. For good reason, he really launched the series at the time. Even if it was in GTA III that the game became a tps, it was nevertheless Vice City that popularized the franchise and opened it to the general public. Scarface atmosphere in the Miami of the 80s. A perfect recipe for a GTA. We follow Tommy Vercetti in a gigantic open environment for the time. The story is simple, we are a Mafioso and we try to climb the ladder. It may sound basic say like that but it immediately becomes spectacular when it’s done by Rockstar. A big hit from the PS2 era, Vice City has grown into a legendary game, and fans love this episode so much that they are going crazy over a return to Vice City for GTA 6.
3 – Grand Theft Auto San Andreas sorti en 2004
So why is San Andreas ranked ahead of Vice City? Tommy Vercetti fans must be screaming to see CJ walk past. We remind you first of all that this is a rather subjective top but here are our arguments: Compared to Vice City, the atmosphere is totally different. Instead of playing an 80s mobster, we’re going to play CJ, a gang member in 90s Los Angeles. San Andreas offers an incredible open-world with 3 distinct cities. During the story you will have missions in Los Santos (Los Angeles), San Fierro (San Francisco) and Las Venturas (Las Vegas). The map is huge and so are the possibilities, the change with Vice City released 2 years earlier is the ability to fully change your character with stats. Rockstar incorporated a tiny RPG dimension into San Andreas along with strength training, stamina, and other skills. One can also add to this an enormous diversity among the missions. Gang war, racing, heists … Rockstar really went out of their way to deliver varied gameplay and a memorable story, and even though it’s aged, it’s still a pleasure to play it again today and it’s therefore logically that it returns on the podium.
2 – Red Dead Redemption sorti en 2010
It’s technically below Red Dead Redemption 2 and that makes sense since it came out 8 years earlier. Its story and its narration are also probably less good. But if he arrives at this place in the ranking, it is because he has revolutionized the open-world genre. Arrived in 2010, Red Dead Redemption slapped everyone. No one expected such a masterpiece back then. Even if his story is really nice and we enjoy playing as John Marston, it is above all the freedom and the possibilities that have been given to us that make the difference here. In a vibrant and beautiful world, there was a ton of things to do that you didn’t necessarily know in the open world of the time. The feeling of freedom when you were alone on horseback in the desert was immense. Even today, it’s a game to do if you’ve never had the chance. It hasn’t aged much and is definitely worth it!
1 – Grand Theft Auto V sorti en 2013
GTA V has now been released for 7 years. It was discovered on the PS3 / Xbox 360 generation. It then crossed over to the PS4 / Xbox One generation and we should even find it on the PS5 / Xbox Series X generation. Rockstar has now been surfing this game for nearly 10 years and there is a reason for this. Great revolution when it was released, the game allows us to play 3 different characters for an incredible story. Improved gameplay, new vehicles, a huge new map, improved graphics … The game was like a bomb when it arrived and for good reason, it was already eagerly awaited. story and an incredible world, Rockstar gave us a multiplayer that still works so well years later. Gta Online is a huge success that has never lost its users. Like many of its predecessors, GTA V has become a monument steeped directly in geek culture, and if it is ranked ahead of San Andreas or Vice City, it is mostly for its longevity and much better gameplay given that it is more recent.
