Personally, I think any one of the GTA Games should be a Featured Article. Maybe even the GTA Series in it's entirety. So, long story short, I think you should put one of these as a featured article: GTA1, Grand Theft Auto: London 1969, Grand Theft Auto: London 1961, GTA2, GTA III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, GTA Advance, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, GTA IV - CJ 23:05, 15 June 2007 (BST)

Sorry for the delay. Featured articles are supposed to represent the best pages, not the best subjects. Pages with good editing, spelling, grammar, links, images, categories etc; rather than just important pages. The games are all listed in the menu on the left, no need to make them featured as well. The GTA London 1969 page is pretty crap, and definitely does not deserve featured article status. Liberty City in GTA IV is a good article, and does deserve featured article status. Vehicles in GTA San Andreas is pretty good too, although it could do with text as well as the table. There are quite a few other Longpages that could be considered, such as Leone Family.
Today's featured article on Wikipedia is wp:Elizabeth_Bowes-Lyon (the Queen Mother) - not the most important page in the world, but featured because of its quality and completeness: "A featured article exemplifies our very best work and features professional standards of writing and presentation. In addition to meeting the requirements for all Wikipedia articles, it has the following attributes." - see wp:Wikipedia:Featured article criteria. Hope that answers your question - Xenon (?) 02:30, 26 June 2007 (BST)
The Cousins Bellic and Banshee look good, i doubt they could get any better. Andrew22k 16:40, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I think Banshee deserves to be a featured article. I don't think The Cousins Bellic should be on because there is a broken link on the page. --Aussiebushmatt 18:41, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Banshee is good yeah, I'll add that soon. The Cousins Bellic had been moved to a sub page for no reason, which I have reversed. It is good, but not quite good enough to be featured yet - we want the BEST articles on the entire wiki! Gboyers talk 20:57, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

It's Your Call has everything a mission article should have and looks like a good example of a mission article, and i think we need a featured mission, any suggestions? also what about Random Characters and 100% Completion in GTA IV. Andrew22k 22:35, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

It's Your Call fails as it does not follow the mission format as it is a walkthrough, which should be moved to It's Your Call/Walkthrough once the mission article is created. As for other articles may I suggest: Salvatore Leone and Characters by Surname (although I'm in the process of revamping that page in this sandbox, unless people believe the current article is better).
