12 Biggest Video Games That Are The Most Value For Money
11. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Here's a controversial thought; GTA V isn't the best GTA - and why? Because it doesn't have an environment you actively want to live in and explore, at least not in the same way as the earlier titles pulled off perfectly. Honestly, you could swap this out for Vice City if you prefer the synth-pop and retro-rock of the 80s, but for now I'm leaving it as San Andreas, its showcase of 90s rap and gangster culture providing a hotbed for everything from blowing up police helicopters to relaxing with a game of pool. Thanks to just how much more world geometry Rockstar managed to concoct between releases, this was the first time it genuinely felt like a 'world' was in front of you, the initially risky switch between the city of Los Santos giving way to mountainous countrysides, back o' beyond villages and the cloud-tickling Mt. Chiliad. It also saw Rockstar detail the entirety of the underwater environment too, with you able to swim to get away from any Wanted level you may have accrued by losing yourself amongst the corals. In your mind, San Andreas most likely remains an incomprehensible explosion of possibility, and although newer games have the edge in sheer square mileage, it remains Rockstar's crowning achievement from all of GTA's history.
