YEAR: 2008     FORMAT: PS3, XBOX 360, PC

The 100 Greatest Games | 16 | Grand Theft Auto IV


While GTA IV offered little in the way of innovation for Rockstar's all-conquering franchise, the developers nonetheless polished the experience to within an inch of its life and created the deepest, most irresistible GTA of them all. Like before, it was the game's freeform structure, stunning set-pieces and engrossing storyline that effortlessly wound players into the slaughter, this time harnessing the processing power of the world's most powerful consoles to make the sprawling cityscape more realistic than ever. The addition of new multiplayer modes were the icing on the cake, and ensured players returned again and again once they'd smashed the single-player adventure.

Memorable for...
Brucie Kibbutz, the uber-macho 'roid monkey. Whether it's shooting up bull shark testosterone or screaming incoherently about being 'genetically superior', Brucie is the game's comedy high point. Fact: The Chinese tattoo on his back means 'transvestite'.
