The Grand Theft Auto franchise has been a staple since 1997. Blending action-adventure gameplay with elements of racing, third-person shooters, stealth, and role-playing, the series is a unique experience in exploring the seedy underbelly of American capitalism. Controversial for its willingness to dive into ethically bleak territory, the Grand Theft Auto series has been criticized in the media for its unblinking depiction of graphic violence, sexual content, and for its stereotypical portrayals of women and minorities.

But all controversy aside, the series has been well-received by critics almost across the board. It’s been honored as the most successful PlayStation 2 game (for San Andreas), the second best-reviewed game of all time (for Grand Theft Auto IV), and the fastest-selling entertainment product of all time (for Grand Theft Auto V). It’s a truly iconic series that has inspired clones and derivatives of varying success, but the series’ originality and willingness to embrace the murky depths of the criminal underworld make it a lasting monument in video game history.
