When comparing Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege vs Grand Theft Auto V, the Slant community recommends Grand Theft Auto V for most people. In the question“What are the best co-op games on Steam?” Grand Theft Auto V is ranked 39th while Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is ranked 62nd. The most important reason people chose Grand Theft Auto V is:
The world of Grand Theft Auto V is extraordinarily massive and filled with details. For example, you can be working to complete a mission which may involve flying a plane, fighting the crew of that plane, crashing it, and finally parachuting out of it only to find an off-road buggy landing. This, in turn may lead you to explore the mountains and wilderness around San Andreas and come across backpackers who will probably be slightly annoyed at you. But this does not even come close to describing the massive scope that GTA V has. It feels like a living world where anything can happen.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Rival teams have unique objectives and strategies
Rainbow Six Siege makes players' experience truly unique and engaging by giving both teams different perspective, tools, and objectives. Defenders have to hold their ground against enemy who can burst through walls at any moment. They can fortify the base using barricades and barbed wire, reinforcing doors and windows. The Attackers have to strategize, find the weakest spot in opponent's defence.
Pro You can choose from characters with different abilities
Rainbow Six Siege adds depth and complexity to the gameplay by introducing unique characters, or Operators, with different abilities. You can choose from 10 Operators on each side (total of 20) to find the ones that suit your preference, or to explore new, unfamiliar aspects of the gameplay. As an example, there is Sledge who uses hammer to break through walls, Flash who can blind the enemy with flash bombs, and Frost who can set up traps to neutralize enemies.
Pro There are tutorials for new players
Rainbow Six Siege offers 10 training missions that let new players get up to speed. The only thing that isn't covered is team gameplay, that can only be mastered during actual battles.

Pro Realistic gameplay
The game has a realistic and interactive environment, where you can destroy objects around you and shoot enemies through walls, floor, and the ceiling, leaving smudges of blood all around.

Pro Massive scope
The world of Grand Theft Auto V is extraordinarily massive and filled with details.
For example, you can be working to complete a mission which may involve flying a plane, fighting the crew of that plane, crashing it, and finally parachuting out of it only to find an off-road buggy landing. This, in turn may lead you to explore the mountains and wilderness around San Andreas and come across backpackers who will probably be slightly annoyed at you.
But this does not even come close to describing the massive scope that GTA V has. It feels like a living world where anything can happen.
Pro Great story wrapped around in biting and relevant social commentary
Grand Theft Auto V is a smart, comical but biting social commentary on contemporary relevant matters. It satirizes almost anything that has to do with the current pop culture. Millennials, celebrities, the right, the left, the middle class, the upper class, the media and even the video game industry itself.
The story and the world in which it takes place are fictional, but the social commentary and the problems it raises and things it satirizes are real -- corruption, greed, hypocrisy, the abuse of power -- are all real and relevant in today's world.
Pro Freedom to explore almost anything
Besides providing players with a huge open world, Grand Theft Auto V also gives them the ability and freedom to explore every corner of the map available to them with any vehicle available to them in the game.

The PC version of GTA V is the optimal experience when it comes to graphic quality. Improved lighting and anti-aliasing make a big difference over the games Xbox One and PS4 counterparts.
Pro Rockstar editor

Pro Well optimized
There were many reservations as to how well Rockstar was going to optimize the game for PC, as some of their past games had a lot of trouble in this area. Luckily it looks as though the game has been optimized quite well with the specs being quite reasonable in order to achieve 60FPS in 1080p on the best settings.
Con Most of the content is locked until you reach a certain level
When you start playing, most of the game modes, characters, and gear are unavailable. To unlock them, you will have to invest tens of hours.
Con Lack of single-player content
If you prefer playing on your own or want to play a campaign, Rainbow Six Siege will not be much fun, because it relies heavily on team gameplay and doesn't have much single-player action.
Con Population density slider in the options does not make much of a difference
The population density option in the PC version does not make much of a difference in the game, while it does have more people and cars than the console counterparts, the increased number is not by much.

Rockstar Social Club is a forced online registration and DRM platform that will not allow one to play the game without first logging in to it. No internet connection, no play. Forget the password to the account three times, get locked out. All hindrances to paying customers that in no way will stop the piracy of this title or effect pirates in any way shape or form.
Con Overrun by hackers
Online play is completely overrun with hackers who have infinite money, can spawn any vehicle of their choice, etc.
