#1 – Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – 2004
Probably the most iconic sandbox game released, GTA: San Andreas is in the hearts of every gamer. Some have spent nights without sleep completing the missions of this game’s main character, CJ, who tries to avenge the death of his mother and his younger brother.
But that is not the best part. In the game, you can do whatever you want. Steal and drive cars, fly a helicopter, meet up with a prostitute, relieve your frustrations by killing people on the street, and explore the vast world of San Andreas, based on Nevada and California. Released in 2004, the graphics at the time were breathtaking and absolutely stunning, and is considered as one of the greatest video games that was ever created.
