Rockstar Games

What is your favorite Rockstar game and why?

8 Answers

My favorite rockstar game was Grand Theft Auto 4, all the characters felt real and 100%ing the game didn’t feel like a chore (not saying 100%ing GTA 5 did), just saying it always felt like an adventure and everytime sometime called me up to do something it always felt like something fun and exciting, except maybe Roman, he got a little annoying. But hey, that’s probably exactly how it would be like if your cousin lived in the same town as you right? Anyways, the add ons and everything, the story. It was a master piece. 10/10 would recommend. And I hope more games and add-ons and stories like The lost and the damned come out again!! Less

My favorite Rockstar game is Grand Theft Auto V Online. You can't find a game that is more immersive than that. You can become the character that you create. You get jobs that you make money from, you buy your own place to live, you buy cars and you buy clothes. You can engage in extracurricular activities such as golf, tennis, racing and even catch a movie. You are in control! There is nightlife if you are bored or lonely. If you like danger there is so much out there that you can get in to! I can play this game for long hours and never get bored. Less

"Midnight Club" 🏍️🚗🏎️is my all time favorite game from RockStar 🌟. Yet it is nothing in compare to GTA but then also...when it comes to Riding and exploring the City, gives immense feeling. I still feel those moments and smile 😊. Amazing thing was Ride everywhere and find street racing events on map, navigate towards event place and do race. Those things makes me feel like I'm the only one Person in the City. Thanx for you love towards us and giving us so beautiful 😍 and lovely games.💐💐💐 Less
