What are the top PC games like GTA 5 for beginners?

1) Saints Row 4

Saint Rows 4 is an action-adventure game with a mix of fiction and realism. The game is played from a third-person perspective and also allows players to explore a massive open-world map.

2) Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 is another great alternative to GTA 5. It was released in 2018 and is an open-world action-adventure game. The game gives players access to a wide array of destructive weapons that can wreak havoc, slaughter people, or do whatever they want.

Just Cause 4 is all about chaos, entertainment, and action. Players can also explore the skies and even perform stunts.


3) Payday 2

Payday 2 is an open world, thriller, shooter, and co-op. This game allows players to be a part of several heists with their friends and create their criminal empire.

The graphic quality of Payday 2 might not be as great, but a lot of interesting missions will engage players. The game even allows players to use stealth tactics to rob cars, banks and even distribute meth or other drugs.


4) Yakuza 0

Yakuza takes players back in time to a Tokyo of 1988. It is an action-adventure game that is a prequel to various other Yazuka titles. In Yakuza 0, players can roam in an open-world environment and can customize their character. The game is played from a third-person perspective.

Players can immerse themselves in the arcade-like combat style of Yakuza 0. It is a lot of fun, and the players won't get bored of the game. Players can't kill other NPCs as they can in GTA 5, but that doesn't deprive this game of a lot of action.


5) Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs more or less looks a rip-off of GTA 5 but with martial arts. It is an action-adventure game with an entertaining storyline.

This game follows the story of an undercover cop who is trying to serve the law as he strives to bring down a relentless criminal group called "The Triads."

Sleeping Dogs has amazing graphics, and the developers have created a virtual Hong Kong that looks stunning. Like GTA 5, the game is packed with violence and action and has many unmerciful combat scenes.
