GTA V Was Released 4 Years Ago Today

On the 17th of September 2013, Grand Theft Auto V, the latest installment in Rockstar's popular franchise, was released following years of rumors and months of hype. The game was predicted to be a massive success but blew away all expectations immediately. Now on it's fourth anniversary, let's look back at some of the most momentous events that have happened since then.

Its so overated that its still in all top 10 sales charts...4 years after its release.

Look I'm not a huge GTA fan (I prefer RDR anytime) but lets give credit where credit is due, GTA 5 was one of the best games evere made.

I'm not talking about sales. I'm talking about reviews. The game is really bland and boring, and didn't deserve all the "10s" it got.

bouzebbal396d ago

no i strongly disagree.
you can be like me or skinox and dislike the game.
i dislike GTA series as a whole..i join him on this one it is bland and boring.
never finished one game, played all of them out of hype. i dont like the freedom in it and everything is scripted with uninteresting characters and lame quests.. drive there, pick this up, clear up the place, pick the loot, lose the police...
sorry but people are allowed not to like this and not be called names because they are a minority.

'i dislike GTA series as a whole'

Well duhh, if you didn't like GTA to begin with you're not going to like GTA5 are you? I don't like certain games, and if a sequel comes out the chances are I won't like that one either. Doesn't mean those games aren't good, it's just not my thing.

Are people born this dimwitted or do they work hard at it?

EDIT:I'd also like to say that the term 'overrated' is used way too much by people. If you don't like something, but a huge majority do like something, it doesn't mean it's 'overrated' - it just means your opinion is in the minority. Your opinion means less in the grand scheme of things.

This guy. Someone always has to say the opposite for attention.

skinox1396d ago

I'm not saying the opposite of a fact to get attention. GTA V is really overrate game, And it's a fact!!!!!!

badz149396d ago


sorry dude. opinion can't be fact.

skinox1396d ago

Not a hater. Used to like GTA franchise back then.

boing1396d ago

Subjective. And you know what they say about people with subjective opinion?

RosweeSon396d ago

In your opinion. In majority of everyone else's it's clearly not its best in series by far and the sales and continued success and use show it.

The_Jackel395d ago

the only thing i did hate about gta v was there is nothing at all to do after you finished all the missions, minus online, but that's toxic most the time

The guy/girl above me can say overrated and to me it isn't as memorable as GTA3-SA (I even loved 4 despite what some people think of it), but to this day it is the highest technical achievement in open world gaming. You may be able to argue The Witcher 3, but content has been coming out for GTA5 since release. There is so much content that is unbelievable.

My only grip is that I am a huge single player gamer and seeing this as the only Rockstar release in 4 years depresses me a bit. I never cared about Agent, Midnight Club, or LA Noire, but games like Bully, Manhunt, State of Emergency (I know), Warriors, Red Dead, Max Payne, and even Smugglers seem to have gone with the restructuring of Rockstar.

Please make original games alongside GTA. There are 10 Rockstar studios...

Derekvinyard13396d ago

State of emergency was a great game

RosweeSon396d ago

For me it's GTA5 GTA3 Vice city then San Andreas and 4

Profchaos396d ago

Agree but I've enjoyed every game Rockstar has put out since state of decay.

I'm mainly a single player campaign type gamer so this money machine that GTA online has turned into sucks IMO

2pacalypsenow396d ago

GTA SA to me is still the best GTA game ever made, the story was 10x better than either 4 or 5.

The gap between GTA4 and 5 seemed like an eternity, but it was only 5 years in the end. The funny thing is we haven't really had a true GTA for this generation of consoles yet. GTA5 came right at the end of the previous generation. It was still a game from that generation and essentially on PS4/Xbox One it is just a port.

I hope GTA6 will come before too long, but with RDR2 pushed back then the time schedule is likely to be pretty extended at this point. Maybe we'll get a GTA6 reveal next summer, after RDR2 has arrived.

EazyC396d ago

I imagine it will be like the gap between RDR and GTA V

sizeofyou396d ago

I suspect not. Reckon GTA6 will be 'October' 2019 or 'March' 2020...

thegamefox93396d ago (Edited 396d ago )

it was 5 1/2 years to be exact (same as breath of the wild). Thats a pretty long time for game developement.. but definitely worth it in the end

RDR will most likely come out summer 2018

Movefasta1993396d ago

it will come t the end of the generation and we'll get a port of it on the next gen consoles at 4k/60 (assuming the x and pro could run it at 4k/30 ish)

Still waiting for the:
"GTAV Story Mode Updates. For those ready to jump back into the story of Grand Theft Auto V, we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor's action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas."
Source, their own blog, down at the bottom...

sizeofyou395d ago

Ha haa. Not seen that before..
We'll...can't see that ever happening! RDR2 online transactions will be the focus over the next few years. While people beaver away on GTA6 in the background.
