Grand Theft Auto 5 is probably the world’s most popular open world action-adventure game. The game was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. In 2014, with the release of the Next-Gen consoles, the game was re-released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC version of the game was not released until 2015. Even though it took Rockstar two years to release the PC version, the popularity of Grand Theft Auto 5 only increased tremendously.
Where the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 really shines are the graphics. The game is even more beautiful and detailed than before. Starting with the massive resolutions that you can play the game in, even on 4K. The PC version of GTA 5 also has double the frame rate, going from 30 fps to 60 fps. Furthermore, the draw-distance and depth-of-field have been greatly improved. This allows you to look much further and see a lot of details at a greater distance.
Not just the surroundings and buildings have been improved, but the details in nature, animals and people have been improved in the PC version. You can even change the camera to first-person mode. This allows you to see the world of Grand Theft Auto 5 very differently. Even though Grand Theft Auto 5 is such a popular game, there are still people that choose not to play it because of its bugs and glitches. Some people also do not like Rockstar Social Club. Here is a list of five hot action-adventure games like GTA 5:
Saints Row 4
Saints Row is a franchise that has a different kind of relationship with gamers and critics. The first three published games were all well received by the press; however, the gamers took a skeptical stance. The first game was written off as a Grand Theft Auto clone. The second was just an extension of the original game, and the third game was way too over the top. With that said, Saints Row 4 has been very well received, both by gamers and by critics alike.
The point is that Saints Row 4 is an incredibly fun game to play if you are looking for GTA 5 alternatives. From roaming around and doing missions to being a superhero, it is all possible in Saints Row 4. You will feel powerful in this game, and won’t get bored using your powers.
Even though the story might be on the short side, you can still spend many hours playing the game. There are a ton of side missions, and you can also mess around in co-op mode. You can buy Saints Row 4 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
Hong Kong, a great place to visit, not just as a tourist in real life, but also as an undercover agent in Sleeping Dogs. United Front Games and Square Enix London joined forces to create Sleeping Dogs. This open world action adventure game was released back in 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Later on, the developers released Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, which has much better graphics, and is playable on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Sleeping Dogs is a great alternative for Grand Theft Auto 5. You can wander around in Hong Kong, try to complete the main story, do all kinds of side missions, fight with people and so much more. The nice thing about Sleeping Dogs is that you can both be the good guy and the bad guy. As an undercover cop, it is up to you to decide which path you want to take.
