5. Saint Mark’s Bistro (San Andreas)
This was a treat for series fans. On behest of a wealthy benefactor, CJ gets to travel to Liberty City to sort out a mafia problem. No, you don’t get to see all of the fictional New York, but you do visit a very memorable location from the first game. Once there, a big firefight ensues as you mow your way through the bistro and to your target. A throwback in many ways to GTA III and the acknowledgement of how far the series has come, the brief Liberty City vacation was a much welcomed break from the sunny coast of Los Santos.
