1. Three Leaf Clover (GTA IV)
I think this one could have been predicted and is already topping many lists not just as one of the best mission in GTA, but one of the best missions in any game anywhere. In many ways, I think we have Three Leaf Clover to thank for all of the fantastic heist scenarios in GTA V. Lifted straight out of a Michael Mann movie, the heist is an exhilarating experience that start according to plan and leads to you escaping on foot through Liberty City subway tunnels.
It’s pulse pounding, intense and overall gratifying as you get away in the end, but not without casualties. What it comes down to, is execution, every moment feels tense, as you find yourself in a broad daylight shoot out with the cops while running down the street looking for cover. Not only that, but also need to cover your cohorts as you move. In the end, just when you think the foot chase is done, it’s on to at least five more minutes of intense evasion.
Three Leaf Clover is an experience like none other and is, in my opinion, the best and most memorable mission in the GTA franchise.
