GTA 5 Steals the Show
BY COLLIN LOY ON OCTOBER 18, 2013
We all remember Grand Theft Auto 1, 2, 3 and 4. A world within worlds to do as you please. The early days of GTA were not as impressive as they are now, but that is expected with a brand new video game.
The last release of the Grand Theft Auto series was four years ago, in which the story took place in Liberty City, modern day New York City. The recent Grand Theft Auto takes us to Los Santos, which is based off the sandy beaches of LA and the hills of Hollywood.
The series has gone through a number of developers and publishers including DMA Design, Rockstar North, Rockstar Leeds and Digital Eclipse, so many changes have been made since the beginning.
Grand Theft Auto V, or GTA 5, earned one billion dollars in profit three days after the release date. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 took fifteen days to reach one billion dollars. So the game is obviously doing well when it comes to bringing in the big bucs.
I’m going to be honest with you; I love the game, and it got to be a little obsessive.
There are three main characters you can play the roles of; Michael, Franklin and Trevor.
Michael is a former criminal at best. Bank robber from the past, he got out of his former criminal life. Now with a family who seems to hate him, he lives a miserable life.
Franklin lives in downtown Los Santos, and his gangster background has gotten him into some close calls. Now he wants to move on to bigger and brighter things that will bring him to more money.
Then there’s Trevor, as crazy as can be. He loves to follow his own rules and do things his own way. Of the three main characters, he is the most unpredictable.
Of the three, my favorite is Michael because of his laid back character. Although, it is always fun with Trevor.
Like they always say, “Time flies when you're having fun.”
And you do nothing but fly in this game. Whether it’s flying helicopters, cars or bikes, the speed of this game is definitely one of the things I love about the game.
However, my favorite part about the game is the ability to do what you want to your car. Most of m. The possibilities are endless. It adds a personal touch to each person who plays the game. Each person will want to do something different to their own personal car.
All in all, it is an incredible game to say the least. Definitely one you might want to keep around for a while. Especially since IGN ranked it a ten out of ten, a perfect masterpiece.
