Lib­erty City (Grand Theft Auto IV)

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - EXTRA -

As great as GTA V’s Los San­tos is, it just doesn’t com­pare to Grand Theft Auto IV’s Lib­erty City. More so than per­haps any other lo­ca­tion on this list, it feels alive, as thriv­ing and re­ac­tive as a real lo­ca­tion. A sand­box un­like any other, it’s easy enough to for­get that you’re there as an agent of chaos, to get caught up in the sim­u­la­tion of the civil­ians—mar­veling at how com­plete it feels. Pedes­tri­ans roam the streets, and when be­hind the wheel of a ve­hi­cle they be­have nat­u­rally; its loud and bustling, a de­tailed en­vi­ron­ment that ul­ti­mately feels lived in, rather a space merely de­signed to ac­com­mo­date game­play. Lib­erty City is a mem­o­rable and wel­com­ing city un­like any other on Xbox, a truly iconic place that no stu­dio has been able to match in the decade since it first graced the plat­form.
