Grand Theft Auto 5 GTA V
Today is a sad, but also kind of fun day as you are joining us for our last installment of our Grand Theft Auto retrospective.
Grand Theft Auto V was a monster of a game. It was far larger in scope than any other GTA game had been before and even now a couple of years later, people are still finding amazing new things in this game.
The story this time around saw you play the role of three different characters. You start off as Franklin a young dude who is just trying to scrape by. He tries to reposes a car from a man called, Michael who is a former career criminal who is trying to lay low after a job went to hell. Michael takes a liking to Franklin and takes him under his wing. Before long a run in with the feds, rival criminals and a whole load of other stuff from the past being brought up. Michael and Franklin cross paths with Trevor a lunatic who once worked with Michael and a guy who hates Michael, but at the same time needs to work with him.
Grand Theft Auto V allows you to switch between all three characters on the fly once they have all been unlocked. You will need to be a certain character to do a certain mission and RockStar created a fantastic story here with three diverse characters that despite their flaws, you care about. As well as a great story, GTA V features a ton of content. There are bank heists, the stock market, scuba diving, base jumping and of course a ton of other things you can run around doing. There was also Grand Theft Auto Online which was an MMO set in the GTA universe and it has built up quite the following.
A year after release, Grand Theft Auto V was released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a much higher quality and also a first person mode, a first for the series. The following year, 2015, Grand Theft Auto V was released on PC.
GTA V is regarded as one of the best games ever made. Grand Theft Auto 6 whatever it is, is going to have to be something special to top it.
