List Rules Vote up your favorite GTA game.

Grand Theft Auto is a video game series that has been under scrutiny since its inception in 1997. It is also one of the first series to fully realize the "sandbox" game genre. In GTA you are able to do pretty much whatever you want within the large maps of the various cities. This includes all sorts of illegal fun like stealing, killing even prostitution. Because of this, GTA is constantly making the news for all the wrong reasons. It should be noted that the Grand Theft Auto series is also one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences out there.

The question is though, which game in the GTA series is the best? GTA3, GTA: Vice City, GTA4 or could if be the newest GTAV? Vote for your favorite Grand Theft Auto game below before someone jacks your wheels.
