The then biggest open-world action game in the market that defined the last decade, Grand Theft Auto V, is still kicking even now, almost seven years after its original release. Its story mode, which tells the stories of Michael, Franklin and Trevor, three very different personalities who are now linked and must complete a series of heists as well as solve their own internal problems with each other and personal issues, is one of the longest campaigns in the franchise, and thanks to Rockstar's impressive artistic work, its set pieces still hold up today.
As for its gameplay, Grand Theft Auto V doesn't need any introductions. It comes with both the standard third-person camera and a first-person camera mode, which allows you to play the entire game seeing through the eyes of your characters. And yes, if somehow you weren't aware, this time you will be controlling three character, being able to change to any of them between missions. Talking about missions, Rockstar followed on IV's steps and allowed for even more options for some main missions, allowing players to take the path they find best to. Even the ending will depend on your choices, although there's space for improvement in this area.
Players can also customize vehicles and guns with a vast amount of options. You can change the color, add a silencer and more to almost every guns, and as for vehicles, you can add neon lights, change horns and more. If you are needing some money, you can also buy stocks through your phone in-game or through your internet browse when you're away from GTA V. It can net you some extra income to help you build your dream garage.
Grand Theft Auto V excels in many other categories too. Its soundtrack, featuring songs from A$AP Rocky, Ice Cube, Queen, Billy Ocean, Dan Croll and more fits the game theme, just like previous titles, leaving no doubts that Rockstar knows what they are doing when it comes to the soundtrack they pick for their games, and since we're on PC, you can also listen to your own musics by just putting them in a specific folder.
Graphics-wise, Grand Theft Auto V on PC scales incredibly well, allowing both players with reasonably old hardware to play it as well as players with powerful rigs to have a great experience from it. Mods are available for both sides, so if you need some extra FPS, make sure to check mods and performance guides, while players with a couple of extra FPS can use mods such as ReShade in order to increase the level of detail and use better filters.
GTA V also has an amazing mod community. There's gameplay mods that add some great tools to cause absolute chaos on single-player, as well as graphical mods in order to take the most out of your computer. Make sure to deactivate such mods when you're heading to Grand Theft Auto Online. You can also checkout the in-development VR mod [github.com]
, which will allow you to take the giant world of the game to your virtual reality headset.
