3) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002 Rockstar Games)
Shooting down Police helicopters with a bazooka? Stealing cars at will? Picking up hookers then beating them up and taking their money? The Grand Theft Auto franchise is easily the most controversial video game series of all time and for good reason. With blindingly deep worlds to explore and a super star cast of voice over actors, Grand Theft Auto was something gamers had never seen before and the soundtrack to Vice City made it a true cross-over success and kept Flock of Seagulls in royalty checks for at least one more decade.
