Everyone in the world of gaming knows the name of and the influence that Rockstar Games has gained in the video game industry, one of the most respected developers today. Almost every game by the company has been a masterpiece, so choosing the best games made by Rockstar is a pretty difficult task.

Top 5 Best Games Made By Rockstar

When thinking of Rockstar games the first thing that can come to mind is its flagship: Grand Theft Auto, but what we must all take into account is that the developer has other titles of the same caliber and quality as the GTA franchise.

That's why we GuruGamer would like to bring you this top 5 of the best games made by Rockstar from each of the company's 5 main franchises:

5 Best Games Made by Rockstar From Each of Its Franchises

1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

It was difficult to choose a single Grand Theft Auto as the most important of this Rockstar Games franchise. Mentioning just one is difficult, but we decided on San Andreas as the most mythical GTA of the entire saga and one of the best games made by Rockstar, which was released on October 26, 2004, for the Playstation 2, Xbox, and Windows.

San Andreas incorporated at that time one of the largest maps seen in a video game, combining 3 cities: Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas. The game managed to reach almost 30 million units sold and over time reached an average score of 95 in Metacritic, and that is why we consider GTA San Andreas as the best Grand Theft Auto in the series.

2. Red Dead Redemption 2

It is the largest open-world video game known so far. The second edition of the legendary Red Dead Redemption also stands out for its graphic details, more than 50 missions, and the quality of the plot that is set in a midwestern story.

Playing an open-world title won't feel the same after you have finished Red Dead Redemption 2. Thanks to the evaluations of other players as one of the best games made by Rockstar, it has been able to sell more than 13 million copies for the PlayStation 4 alone in a short time, which can now be enjoyed on the PS4 and Xbox One.

3. Max Payne 3

Originally this franchise was not owned by Rockstar or Take-Two Interactive until May 2002. Take-Two bought the rights to the franchise from Remedy and 3D Realms. The third installment was the one that stood out the most, which was developed by Rockstar Vancouver, released on May 18, 2012, for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

The Max Payne franchise came with a solid 3rd installment that told us the story of an older and morally bankrupt Max Payne who is forced to accept a job offer as a bodyguard for a wealthy family in Brazil.

The game kept the essence of the previous Max Payne and brings a lot of innovations such as a multiplayer mode, which is something never seen in this franchise, and improvements to the bullet time to give that Matrix movie feel. In case you don't know what bullet time is, it is something similar to what we see in Red Dead Redemption with the Dead Eye System

Max Payne 3 was well received by critics with an average above 80, and this third installment which came out in 2017 had sold 3 million units, which was somewhat below Rockstar's forecasts but this is a game that is still fully recommended.

4. LA Noire

Although this game was developed by Team Bondi, it was distributed by Rockstar Games, and currently, after the end of professional collaboration due to disagreements with Bondi, Rockstar Games now own the rights to LA Noire. The game was released on May 17, 2011, for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.

The game tells the story of detective Cole Phelps who will have to solve a series of crimes in Los Angeles in 1947, inspired by the film noir genre of the 40s and 50s. The game was well received by critics reaping an average of 90. The game provided good benefits for Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive, granting them a 7.75% share increase on launch day.

LA Noire was well ahead of its time when it came to graphics, they used 32 high-definition cameras to capture even the smallest detail of the actors. This was fundamental in the game since facial expressions were the highlight when questioning a person in the game.

On November 14, 2017, Rockstar re-launched the game this time with improvements and remastered for current generation consoles. We hope that Rockstar will one day decide to develop a sequel to one of the best games made by Rockstar

5. Midnight Club: Los Angeles

Launched on October 21, 2008, for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles and set in the state of California, Rockstar brought us the fourth installment of this racing franchise developed by Rockstar San Diego in which they allowed us to go from being a novice in street racing to becoming the champion, with an open world ready to be explored in our favorite car.

The game was acclaimed back then for its good recreation of some of LA's most iconic sights and the fun you could have causing chaos in the night streets of Los Angeles. It had a multiplayer for 16 people where we were allowed to create our own races and it was well-received in terms of criticism obtaining an average of 80.
