Grand Theft Auto V was released in September. Sales topped $800 million on its first day.
Lindsay's lawsuit says a character named Lacey Jonas is an "unequivocal" reference to the Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star.
The suit says Lindsay's image, voice and styles from her clothing line are depicted in the game. It says the game features West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont hotel, where she once lived.
The character also seeks help skirting paparazzi.
