If you’re reading this, chances are that you’re either out of the loop or don’t give a shit, but either way, Rockstar Games’ latest universe-shaking game, Grand Theft Auto V, released today and has been the subject of many a conversation.
To be honest guys, I don’t really like the Grand Theft Auto series, so I can’t really give you a personal preview/summary I’d normally do for you. I am, however, able to easily steal things from the ever-so-resourceful Wikipedia page on GTAV:
Grand Theft Auto V is played in third-person and combines driving and action gameplay in an open world environment, allowing the player to interact with the game world at their leisure. The game is set within the fictional state of San Andreas, which is based on Southern California, affording the player free roam over the world’s countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos, which is based on Los Angeles. The single-player story is told through three player-controlled protagonists whom the player switches between—Michael, Trevor and Franklin—and the story follows their efforts to plan and execute six large heists to accrue wealth for themselves. An online multiplayer mode is included, allowing up to sixteen players to engage in both co-operative and competitive gameplay in a recreation of the single-player setting.
Many people have already been playing this game for almost a day now, since the midnight release for GTAV has been reported (and expected) as phenomenally successful.
Grand Theft Auto V is available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as of today. Sorry, PC players. Maybe you guys will have better luck with a petition?
