The ‘Grand Theft Auto’ (GTA) series has been the mainstay of open world gaming for years now. It has taken the intricacies of city design, character background, and plot style to the pinnacle of creativity. With compelling stories based on crime and loyalty built around rich urban landscapes, ‘GTA’ has drawn in gamers for several years, and is rightfully considered as the gold standard in all of gaming. Here is the list of video games similar to GTA that are our recommendations. You can play these open world games like GTA on Xbox, PS4, Xbox 360, mac, ps4, android, iphone and even online.
16. Red Dead Redemption 2
If you love movies like Once Upon a Time in The West and Unforgiven, you will definitely love Red Dead Redemption 2. It captures the lawlessness of the wild west perfectly, and RDR2 was undoubtedly the most hyped up release of 2018. With players sinking hundreds of hours into the game and still running into new things to do, it is truly a masterpiece. From the creators of GTA V themselves, Rockstar Studios published yet another masterpiece. The game is quite possibly the most visually advanced title on any platform right now, and it caters to anyone who loves the art behind video games. While you get to play as Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang, there is much more to the story than just the tale of Arthur. RDR2 speaks about the changing times in America and makes you question your morality constantly. The game proves that not everything is black and white, and there’s a lot of gray in between.
15. Crackdown 3
The original Crackdown is one of the most impressive games to come out on the Xbox 360 and Crackdown 3 came along with a lot of expectations on its shoulders. It has been 3 weeks since launch, and even though the game received mediocre reviews, the game is still worth a shot for anyone who is a fan of the older Crackdown games. Whether you are a Terry Crews fan or simply want to try out a shooter that is relaxing, Crackdown 3 should fit your bill. Wrecking Zone’s environmental destruction is arguably the best part of the game as it allows you to wreak mayhem wherever you go, and it definitely is fun to smash things without consequence after a long day’s work. Crackdown 3 is essentially the same Crackdown experience we’ve had in the Xbox 360 era with little improvements. The game is much more enjoyable on PC as Xbox One users have been complaining about aggressive auto-aim which makes the game a bit too easy to beat. With no aim assist in place on PC, it should be a much more balanced experience.
14. Yakuza 6: A Song of Life
