    Best 'GTA Clones'?

    Okay, so GTA revolutionized 3D open world gaming (thanks to Criterion and Rockstar games), so far to call games that are similar to it, 'GTA clones'.

    My question is, what is your favourite 'GTA clone'? Where you can steal vehicles, kill people etc.

    Mine, even though I don't have it, would be Saints Row 3, it looks awesome and I can't wait to get it.

    Saints Row: The Third and Just Cause 2 are the ones that spring to mind. Sleeping Dogs was also fantastic but there is less of an emphasis on killing people with guns.

    I've read many reviews saying Sleeping Dogs is of the ilk, yet I've yet to play it. It is being received well.

    Let's see. As mentioned above, Just Cause 2. However, can't be missed would also be The Saboteur. Absolutely loved it.

    Never touched these, but heard good things about: Saints Row, Red Faction Guerrilla, Mercenaries 2, Mafia II to name a few.

    There's also LA Noire, but I don't really class it in the same mould. The only thing in common is driving around freely between missions, without any of the mayhem stuff.

    They call these "sandbox" games.

    Saints row is probably the better of all the "clones", mostly because its more ridiculous and edgy. Lots of sexual innuendoes and in game cheats.

    The others are ok, but not important enough to list.

    They're not called sandbox games, inFAMOUS, Sly Cooper are sandbox games, look how different they are from GTA.

    Yes, GTA is a sandbox game, but if I made a thread called Best Sandbox games then I would get these 2 games above, and they're no where close to GTA.

    Like a few others above, the top of my list would be Saints Row : The Third (really, I enjoyed it more than GTA IV). A few of my favorite others are Mafia II (though it's not really as free roam), Just Cause 2, and Red Faction Guerilla.

    The first Mercenaries game was similar with the ability to call in air strikes and play with C4. That was for PS2 though. The second one was way to buggy to make it good.

    Sleeping Dogs for me. Can't get to grips with Saints Row, I think it's so over the top it's borderline retarded

    I loved The Godfather when it first came out. Mafia II is pretty good as well. Scarface was pretty fun too. I know these didn't get great reviews or anything, but they were still good. True crime games were also very fun. I never played the first one but heard it was amazing. True Crime New York I played though and had a blast with it.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    That could be any open world game, at all.

    GTA 'clone', a game where you go through a set of missions in an open world, while stealing cars, murdering people, running away from police, doing other activities, fly helicopters/planes or drive boats, use guns etc.

    I really enjoyed Mafia II (although its not open world) its a very underated game imo.

    Definitely RDR, Sleeping Dogs, and Just Cause 2.

    As for Saints Row 3, I thought that game was terrible
