Storyline

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Many of the cars in the game are based off of cars in real life (ex. The Bravado Gauntlet is based off the Dodge Challenger and The Albany Escalade is based off the Cadilliac Escalade). See more »

Goofs

The song "I Get Lifted" by George McCrae incorrectly includes a writer credit for K. Murray, & E. Sermon. New York rapper Keith Murray sampled the George McCrae original as it plays within the game for his own track called "Get Lifted". See more »

More than perfect
10 January 2014 | by bkbcruiseSee all my reviews

People often say that NOTHING is perfect. Well GTA 5 proved us all WRONG. In fact it makes the saying look so silly, & stupid. Thats because hell yeah, GTA 5 is perfect. The graphics though beautiful, is yet not comparable with newer games like Ghost, or Battlefield 4. The game play however, if I may call it-is indeed PERFECT. I especially liked the switching between characters. The injuries of people are exposed so stunningly that I cannot explain it in mere words. Besides the eye popping environment detailing is worth mentioning. Oh man we are so lucky to have been born at an era where something like this was released. If there's ANYTHING even more than perfect, then it's got to be GTA 5. Recommended for all gamers. Believe me, it is a once- in- a lifetime experience, because a game like this may never be made again. I usually download games, but for this one, I bet no body will regret buying it. Buy it if you haven't played it yet.
