    "After being a faithful GTA player, I wanted a similar game, but with new twists. Sleeping Dogs did not disappoint me. It gives me the same feel of the open world grittiness of GTA, but in completely different settings."

    "Not the best solution since GTA is set in today's world and deals with cars. The solution is set in the past and on horseback. Crime is the only connection between the two games."

    "This game is like GTA if you're looking to age it down and go tiny. It definitely has the same devil-may-care feel, but you're also controlling a teenager in a school which, given various events, is a little uncomfortable imo."

    "One of the best games if you compare it to GTA. The same people who made GTA made Saints Row IV and is your ideal go-to game if you like GTA. It's reasonably priced and has amazing graphics on top of it."

    "Looking for the best games like GTA, I got Watch Dogs 2. This game has a lot too it, but the only thing that this game has that's similar to GTA is that it's open-world. Fun game nonetheless."

    "State of Decay is an open world survial game that is full of zombies to to kill. You need to build a base and build it up and build up your character. It is available on X-box and Windows. It will be released in spring of 2018. I don't think that his really is the same game style as GTA though. I would say it doesn't really fit the topic."

    "In my opinion, GTA is probably one of the best sandbox games ever developed. I was interested in finding a game similar to GTA since I loved the serious so much, so I decided to give Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition a try. Overall I liked the game, my main gripe is that there is no free roam once you finish the game which is probably one of the best features in GTA."

    #9Mafia III

    Mafia III

    It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for.. Mafia 3 is a sandbox game with plenty of shooting.

    "If you like a good story during your gaming, Mafia III is a standout title. Combining elements of First Blood and Goodfellas, Mafia III spins a good yarn as it goes. I don't know if the actual game play is as precise and entertaining as it could be. But the story keeps you moving through until the end. The world is open and allows you a fair amount of freedom to explore. "

    "If you're a fan of GTA, then you have to give this game a try. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the fact that I could shoot it out with the bad guys! I think the graphics are awesome and the gameplay is great! Also the setting in 1940s is interesting- you don't see many games like that."
