Grand Theft Auto V is a masterpiece with its giant cast of memorable and funny characters, large and deep open world with the harsh land of San Andreas, and its three Oscar-worthy main protagonists. Rockstar North continues to prove their credibility with the latest game in the critically acclaimed franchise that seems to keep getting better after each installment. GTA V has become a staple for the video game industry with Rockstar's mind numbing attention to detail with its fantastic story that's both crazy and over the top with single missions that feel more cinematic than other video game stories all together, and deep and thoughtful with great performances by leads Ned Luke, Steven Ogg, and Shawn Fonteno, bringing the best from the lighter and darker installments in the series. GTA V not only brings the upgrade to the story department (already being a prominent figure of the series) but Rockstar North also brings the tightest and most fluid of combat, driving, and flying mechanics that we have ever seen, blending all the pros of past GTAs as well as mechanics from Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, and Midnight Club, making this feel like the ultimate form of all of Rockstar's past successes (which there are many). Grand Theft Auto V gives hundreds of hours of joy to players with its long and drawn out gem of a main storyline, plenty of fun and interesting side missions (dubbed "Strangers & Freaks" understandably) as well as charming random events that occur throughout the city, tight and smooth gameplay, beautiful visuals (not to mention great motion capture and cinematography), and the rich and freakish world of Los Santos and Blaine County, making Grand Theft Auto V Rockstar's latest classic. Oh, there is also an Online mode. Supporting up to 32 players, Grand Theft Auto Online is a fun and chaotic mess where players each want to go up through the ranks by doing various missions, races, deathmatches, wave-based survival modes, adversary modes (special player vs player only modes that have their own rule sets), and activities in the open world. GTA Online allows players to have fun with their friends, whether by doing missions involving beloved characters from the story mode, as well as past games in the series, just goofing off around in freeroam, or by making their own custom game modes with the content creator. Long lasting players are also pleased with Rockstar adding tons of new free content that keep the world of Los Santos alive, though admittedly making it difficult for players to get some of this new content with the inclusion of microtransactions. All in all, Grand Theft Auto V is definitely well-worth your money with its excellent story mode: filled to the brim with great and memorable moments, brilliant writing that seems like Tarantino was involved with the production, a great barrage of characters, fun side missions and activities, and its solid gameplay making one of, if not, the best Rockstar has produced. Rockstar Games has made a masterpiece with GTA V by having the obliviously well-praised story mode, fun and time-consuming online mode, as well as a support for the modders and content creators by including director mode, which allows players to use characters for the base game and make their own cinematics by taking control of the camera as well as other features in the world such as lighting, filters, and weather effects, and allowing creators to edit their cinematics as well as clips they can record through the game in both story and online mode in the Rockstar Editor and upload their creations to YouTube or Rockstar's own social club, making it easier for creators to do what they love. If you could not tell, Grand Theft Auto V is a great game that will provide anyone hundreds and hundreds of hours of entertainment and is probably one of the greatest videogames in recent years.
