GTA V is one of those rare examples where a big budget, long development cycle and never ending hype has actually culminated in a game that lives up to all the expectations lumped on it.
Exactly the same score i would give it myself.
I myself am would give it a 8.75. Maybe a 9 but that's pushing it. This is a game that you can tell Rockstar put an absolute ton of hard work into BUT there are a lot of things in this game that make my head spin when I have seen so many reviews scoring it 10 after 10 after 10. I'm still playing it. I probably have about 50 hours invested already and I really enjoy the game for what it is. I just hope that GTA VI will eliminate the plethora of issues this game has. Personally, although GTA V looks better, GTA IV ran better. GTA V definitely is a better overall game though. Maybe if GTA IV wasn't so over rated this version would've had more realistic scores instead of following the path of being over rated yet again.
I kind of feel like with 8-9 year old consoles in our hands, this is the absolute best they could have done without taking away innovation.
