Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is undoubtedly the best series of video games published by Rockstar Games and developed by subsidiary companies. The games are primarily developed by British development house Rockstar North.
All the games of the series mainly revolve around driving and shooting, with occasional role-playing and many other side quests. The story is set around in 1960s to the 2010s.
Each game has a main storyline where usually the protagonist wishes to rise through criminal life in a city, working his way to the top, but the reason behind this varies from game to game.
The game has developed from 2D universe to 3D universe and finally the HD universe. Even while going through the graphic transitions the game never failed to flatter the players. This made it the best game franchise of all time. The series has been critically acclaimed and commercially successful, having shipped more than 280 million units with an estimated gross revenue of over $9 billion.
The game also allows player to roam freely in the map, which is called as open world games and grants a large amount of freedom to player. Initial game featured three cities namely Liberty City which was based on New York City, San Andreas based on San Francisco and Vice City based on Miami. The later games are heavily expanded and remodelled version of the same cities.
