GIZORAMA - Let’s be clear: if you are reading this review, which will have come live on the website well after the release of the game, you have probably bought, played, and formed your own opinion on this game. Grand Theft Auto V is immensely popular. As of the time of this writing, the game has made over a billion dollars, spawned endless internet discussion and memes, thousands of videos, millions of message board posts, appeared on nightly news, and has made such a splash culturally that avoiding the title would be tantamount to not knowing what Angry Birds is. There is no avoiding it. The good news is that you shouldn’t want to.
Grand Theft Auto V is developer Rockstar’s latest addition to their open world crime series, and one that acts as a response to everything that has come before. It is an impossibly large game, and one that extends beyond any iteration before it.
