Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) is an action-adventure game published by Rockstar Games in 2013. After nearly one decade released, this game stands out as a legendary video game. GTA V also is the second best-selling video game of all time. One of the factors that make up a famous GTA V as now is the attractive and exciting gameplay.
Grand Theft Auto V shares many same points in gameplay with previous Grand Theft Auto games. This is an action-adventure game played from either a third-person or first-person perspective. There are many missions for players to complete to progress the game’s storyline. Players also have the opportunity to freely explore the fictional city of Los Santos and the fictional Blaine County. Grand Theft Auto V is an open world that has bigger than every world in the previous titles of the GTA series. This game also allows players to fully explore this open world from the beginning of the game without having to complete any big mission. However, completing missions can unlock more gameplay content, which helps you fully experience the game.
Grand Theft Auto V has the players control three characters: Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, and Franklin Clinton, 3 criminals as well as 3 protagonists of the game. There are many missions that need only one, two, or even three characters to complete. Outside the missions, this game allows the player to switch through these characters to freely explore the world by a directional compass on the head-up display (HUD). All of the controlled characters can run, jump, swim, and even use vehicles as well as fight enemies by using weapons or explosives.
In particular, Grand Theft Auto V introduced many new vehicles that players can drive such as fixed-wing aircraft. When a character is injured, his health meter will gradually regenerate to its halfway point. However, if the health meter depletes, the player needs to give his character to hospitals to respawn. Moreover, GTA V also created the “wanted” feature that law enforcement agencies respond to players’ crimes. There is a “wanted” meter in the HUB which displays the star to indicate the current wanted level of this character.
While freely exploring the open world in Grand Theft Auto V, the player can join in some activities such as scuba diving, BASE jumping, taking yoga, and visiting some businesses. Each character also has a smartphone to contact friends, start activities, or even access the in-game Internet. This allows the player to buy some shares on the stock exchange to earn money. However, having an interest from stocks is quite hard except for that you directly influence the market, such as investing in a particular car company and then taking some action that will enhance the value of that company’s stock. Players may purchase properties such as garages and businesses as well as update the vehicles and weapons in each character’s arsenal. Owning a business can automatically generate money for players. Moreover, each character may be customized the experience by changing the outfits, haircuts, and tattoos.
With such an exciting, attractive, and free gameplay, Grand Theft Auto V has made a huge explosion in gaming. After nine years released, GTA V still stands at the top of the most-played game every month and year. This game is available to play on a number types of consoles and PC now.
