#20 GTA 4
Grand Theft Auto 4 takes place in Liberty City, which is Rockstar's simulacrum of New York City—or Manhattan Island and its surrounding boroughs.
While many parts of the map have been scaled down for accessibility and gameplay purposes, it's hard to shake the feeling that you're driving around in New York City whenever you start up GTA 4. You can even catch a ride in a cab and tour the sights as he drives around the city.
And when you get tired of driving around peacefully, there's always the option to unleash hell and take on the entire police force.
