Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
This is the game that turned gaming and pop culture on its rear. It was a force in pushing the 80s retro movement and the soundtrack had us all scouring the web for any song by A Flock of Seagulls.
The open-world adventure game followed Tommy Vercetti, as he sought revenge in some of the most awesome Miami suits we've ever seen. Vercetti goes through it all, from betrayal to love, in a style reminiscent of Scarface with the iconic chainsaw included.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was by far the title that truly defined a decade in gaming.
