The reliability of the numbers can certainly be called into question, but a new report from Digital Battle claims to have identified the ten most expensive video games of all time – and it’s Grand Theft Auto IV that tops the pile.

With a rumoured budget of $100m, Rockstar’s game finishes above the likes of Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo ($80m), Sega’s Dreamcast epic Shenmue ($70), Microsoft’s commercial flop Too Human ($60m) and PS3 hit Metal Gear Solid 4 ($60m).

Here’s the list in full:

1. Grand Theft Auto 4: $100 million
2. Gran Turismo: $80 million
3. Shenmue: $70 million
4. Too Human: $60 million plus
5. Metal Gear Solid 4: $60 million
6. Halo 3: $55 million
7. APB: $50 million
8. L.A. Noire: $50 million
9. Final Fantasy XII: $48 million
10. Killzone 2: US$45 million
