Looking Back on... Grand Theft Auto IV

GGTL: "Grand Theft Auto.

It sends a small shiver down your spine, no? You can forget your Modern Warfare and your FIFA; if you want a game that encapsulates all that's great about gaming, you look straight to arguably the most popular, loved and revered series ever made. From the breathtaking and ground-breaking GTA III, to the hedonistic overkill of San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV, the highest rated game ever made - Grand Theft Auto was all that gaming needed to be."

It's hard to believe GTA IV is actually the highest rated game of all time. If he weren't so happy-go-lucky, Shigeru Miyamoto would be plotting revenge in a high-tech Japanese bunker somewhere under Tokyo right now.

Highest rated!? No way. Ocarina and the Super Mario Galaxy games are the highest rated of all time (See Gamerankings), both of which are made by Shigeru Miyamoto. Even metacritic lists Ocarina as the highest rated ever.

QuodEratDemonstrandm2609d ago (Edited 2609d ago )

Isn't it possible that the author should have been more precise? Is there a GTA title higher rated than 4? Or, for that matter, a PS3 title higher rated than GTA4?

Edit: I just looked on MetaCritic. The top two spots are GTA4. Then Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, then THPS3 and GTA3.

You should really do your research before staring such dumb arguments just to fulfill your empty life.

Ocarina of Time at the top. 3 games above GTA4.

Ocarina of Time at the top AGAIN. Super Mario Galaxy 1,2 are both on top..... Was it really that hard for you?

definitly boosted zelda up there it was 98 for a long time. doesn't matter almost all those games hyped.

zelda is one of the worst series ever

Most popular, loved, revered series is not GTA, not by a long shot. That honor goes to Zelda or Mario with Final Fantasy right behind.. although in the last few years Final Fantasy has lost some of its luster.

by sales is probably one of the highest mario sits at 8-9 million per game gta is around there too. zelda is way lower.

This sums up GTA IV perfectly its a really breathtaking game with super attention to detail but still left us wanting more....where are the planes?

kidnplay2609d ago

Never been a great fan of GTA in general, but there's no doubting its achievement, particularly in open-world design.

LarVanian2609d ago (Edited 2609d ago )

More like the highest rated joke ever. Episodes from Liberty City was a hell of a lot better than the main game.

rezzah2609d ago

was a great game and brought about some really nice next gen quality never before seen. The realism though a lack of specifics when compared to San Andreas, however it made up for that lack obviously by its beautiful visual realism. A huge jump from it's previous game (GTA:SA).
