Best R* Game



  • Bully by a long shot. There isn't anything like that in the genre unfortunately. I would love to see it again much more than seeing another GTA. Rockstar stopped going for variety unfortunately and I'm getting annoyed by it.



  • GTAIII

    Nothing will ever beat the sense of awe i felt when i played this for the first time. Objectively it's not the best game of course but there is just so much nostalgia and great memories that i can't chose any other game.



  • RDR2 for the mind-blowing world and GTA IV for the oppressive atmosphere. They are all good games, with lots of flaws and also lots of industry leading stuff.



  • Bully.
    GTA is terrible.



  • Red Dead 1 will always be my favorite, but it's possible I've got nostalgia goggles on a little bit. I just love the streamlined structure of it as opposed to that of 2 (which I still adore), and it just makes me feel like a cowboy more than RDR2. RDR2 takes place so much in the east that the old west feeling unfortunately suffers, whereas New Austin just screams Fistful of Dollars and Butch Cassidy.



  • Your right it is hard to pick just one, I've enjoyed most of Rockstar's games since GTA 2. All the GTA's, Red Dead Redemption, Bully, The Warriors, Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire. I'll say it's between GTA San Andreas and RDR 2 for me. I recognize that RDR 2 is the superior game now but I have lots of great memories of playing GTA San Andreas.



  • @phbz
    One of the little things I loved in GTA4 was the fisheye lens that would happen when looking up into the sky, definitely helps give the feeling that your surrounded on all sides by monolithic buildings.



  • @dmcmaster That's actually a really cool detail. Never noticed it.



  • @phbz
    And if I remember correctly that fisheye effect is only for GTA4, the two DLC have it missing. Could a technical thing or maybe a slight bit of character development.


  • Banned

    @dmcmaster It's because Niko is a foreigner and not used to tall buildings surrounding him.
    The other two characters are Liberty City natives and used to it.



  • @el-shmiablo
    That's why I said it could be a slight bit of character development, however I suspect it's also technical because I remember the framerate on the PS3 version of 4 taking a pretty bad dip when the fisheye effect happens (granted the PS3 version ran like crap to begin with.)



  • One of the best parts about Bully is when Jimmy plays tonsil hockey with Eunice for the first time.



  • @jdincinerator

    Bully 2, Bully remake, Bully spin-off. Something has to happen to this franchise. It has a great potential and very unique game. Leave the big boys alone for some time and do this.



  • Max Payne 3 by far. it was first and last time rockstar game is mechanically perfect and its so good that show thier talent they wasted on open world games.
    didnot liked any GTA game. tried GTA5 too and it sucked, stopped playing it in mid way. RDR1 was thier best open world game but RDR2 is snoozefest, it might have best graphics ever, incredibly detailed world but gameplay is incredibly dull and slow and missions that offer absolutely no freedom at all plus automatic horse riding when following a gang over and over made it booring.



  • @b-cell lol I forgot MP3 was a Rockstar game! I think that takes the cake away from RDR2 for me.



  • Three-way tie between Vice City, San Andreas and Bully. All are some of my favorite games ever.
