Which game series which is similar to GTA is your favourite? (Updated)

Which game series which is similar to GTA is your favourite?

--Not including the GTA series itself or the Red Dead series because everyone will vote for those options if they are included--

If anyone can think of anymore game series where you can roam around freely and steal people's cars or horses, let me know.

Also take a look at these real life San Francisco photos in comparison to screenshots from Watch Dogs 2

I really enjoyed Driver and Driver 2 on PS1 back in the day.

Also Welshy, back a while ago you asked me why I prefer Forza 6 to Forza 7. The menu has more polish, more sex appeal, and way better music and makes me actively want to start the next race, and I find the voice of the woman who describes the race tracks to be attractive.

The Mario series. I really enjoy stealing the Mushroom Kingdom's supply of gold coins and power-ups.

Mufasa can you actually leave your car, roam around on foot and steal other people's cars in Driver 1 and 2 though?

Mufasa that's interesting you find playing Forza Motorsport 6 more arousing than playing Forza Motorsport 7. Have you tried playing Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Horizon 4? Those games are much better.

Moonray I doubt they will ever make am official Mario game similar to the GTA games.

Do you think I've covered every game similar to the GTA games in my poll?

"If anyone can think of anymore game series where you can roam around freely and steal people's cars or horses, let me know."

So what game series can you roam around freely and steal people's horses apart from Red Dead Redemption 1 and Red Dead Redemption 2?

You can steal cars in Driver 2, but you can't shoot or beat people. And in retrospect it isn't a very good game, although the first one is. I have played Horizon. I'm more of a racing sim guy, so I prefer the main motorsport series and Gran Turismo games. But I do enjoy FH3 and 4.

"You can steal cars in Driver 2, but you can't shoot or beat people. And in retrospect it isn't a very good game, although the first one is."

If I recall correctly, Driver 2 didn't get good reviews when it first came out. Something about how the graphics and physics were worse than the original Driver. It was a PS1 era game trying to pull off something you wouldn't see until the next generation of consoles so it probably bit off more than it could chew.

Yeah the driving was much crisper in the first one, and the first one had way less frame rate issues and much better music.

This is an all-time classic when it comes to video game music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FXqb9pxJh8

Yeah I remember pouring hours into the first Driver back in 2002 on my old beast of a PC which was Compaq Presaro 5610 that had a Pentium 2 350mhz cpu, 384 MB Ram and a Nvidea Geforce Ti4200 video card.

Interesting conversation. Yeah I remember the first Driver a popular game when I was a kid but its an open world driving game though. Not a gta type game.

Surely you guys can think of some open world games where you can roam around freely and steal people's horses?

Posted February 21st by Welsh_Gamer

I do recall freely roaming around in Ocarina of Time and then stealing Ingo's horse. Now that you mention it, Ocarina of Time is one of my favorite games.

It was an open world driving game with crime as the main theme, and it came out well before GTA became what it is and likely helped inspire it. I would count it just based on that. Driver was a pioneer for modern GTA.

That's a good point actually Vandy. What other games can you think about where you can roam around freely and steal people's horses? How about the Dynasty Warriors series?

I killed Mufasa, you can't commit many crimes when you can't even get out of your car though. Grand Theft Auto 1 was released before Driver 1.

Technically you could say all open world driving games have crime in them seeing as street racing is illegal in a lot of places.

GTA1 is less like GTAV than Driver is.

How many driver games can you actually walk out of your car and steal other cars though?

Posted February 23rd by Welsh_Gamer

Doesn't matter. It's an early game and it's more like later GTA games than the the earliest GTA game, therefore it fits the category of "series similar to GTA".

Posted February 23rd by I killed Mufasa

I guess it can be "Some of the Driver games"

Since you can't get out of your car in all of the Driver games.

So Mufasa what games can you think of where you can roam around freely and steal people's horses?

Posted February 27th by Welsh_Gamer

Oblivion/Skyrim, Red Dead? I'm sure there are others. Can you do it in Assassin's Creed?

Posted February 27th by I killed Mufasa

How about Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild?

Kingdom Come Deliverance, World of Warcraft and the Dynasty Warriors games. And yeah you can steal horses in some of the Assassin's Creed games.

I played Saints Row more than GTA. I remember having a lot of fun with the first two. The sense of humour and character customization was nuts.

MarvaIo that's interesting. Do you think there will ever be a Saints Row 5?

Posted March 2nd by Welsh_Gamer

Redline from 1999 was pretty good.

Q interesting you have brought up a game nobody has ever thought of before.

What's your opinion about Space Station Silicon Valley on the Nintendo 64?
