Rockstar’s vaunted open world series is full of memorable missions.
The Grand Theft Auto series is famous for laying popularizing the open world sandbox genre, allowing players to do whatever and go wherever they want (within limits, of course). However, it’s also incredibly consistent with its mission design, doling out hilarious and tragic moments alike. Let’s take a look at 15 of the best missions throughout the series.
Cop Land – Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City released one year after Grand Theft Auto 3 and while its style and setting distinguished it greatly, the missions were a whole other level of ridiculous. When a bomb fails to go off in North Point Mall, Tommy comes up with a plan to infiltrate the mall and detonate it himself. How? Why, by beating up police officers with Lance and posing as them. The detonation is a success but also results in a 5-star Wanted level, thus facilitating an even crazier escape.
