GTA that has a reason behind it, a 'just cause'

Where games like GTA you go around killing people for no real purpose, Just Cause is a game that gives your violence a reason. You play Rico, a man who's goal is to remove the evil dictator from power in a remote tropical island. I was around 10/11 when I first played this game and I am absolutely fine. It is one of the best games of its time and still holds up to this day. If your kids asks for either this of GTA, get them this.
