There are no video games that ever beat the hot controversial as best as Grand Theft Auto V. Every time a GTA games coming out, it’s always surrounded with controversies for its violence, sex, and drugs abuse. But, with all those hot issues, this game still holding the first place as the most successful game of all time. With 3 billion dollar revenue only in its four days of release, no games ever beat this one.
About GTA V
GTA V is an open-world game where you now have the option to play either in third-person view or the first-person view. It’s an action adventure game telling a story of three men, Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. It’s the first time ever that a GTA V can be played with the first-person view because the recent GTA games only feature the third person for the gameplay.
Once upon a time, a group of Michael Townley, Trevor Philips, and Brad Snider were doing some bank robbery. But their heist didn’t go the way it supposed to be. The heist failed and led Brad to prison. Furthermore, Trevor got away, and Michael lived in under witness protection nine years later after the heist. On the other side of the story, a young street hustler, Franklin Clinton worked as a Repo man who was about to repossess a car which belonged to Michael’s son. Saw a man about to steal his car, Michael confronted Franklin and he told the truth why he stole the car.
After that incident, Franklin and Michael are now friends, but Michael made a mistake for wrecking someone’s house that he thought belongs to a man who cheated on his wife. What he did not know was that the house he destroyed belongs to a mobster and now, Michael is in million dollars debt to the mob. Michael had no choice besides robbing again to get money for fulfilling his debt. As he did his criminal activity again, his whole past history now began to haunt him again. All the problems come up one by one eventually.
Hearing all the heist news from TV, Trevor rushed to find Michael to know what’s going on and want to join in for another heist score. Together, Michael, Trevor, and Franklin must face their problems and solve it together so they can get back their lives.
Since GTA IV online game mode is a frustratingly disappointment, GTA V now offers you better features. Not only you can play the single player story mode, but now you can play in Grand Theft Auto Online by creating your own character. In online mode, you will often meet the three main character from the story mode, but instead, you are given the option to play lots of custom games like racing, heist, free roam, stunts, and much more other.
In this gameplay, you will only have to race just like in any other racing games. Lots of exotic cars await you in the game.
Now, this is what the players want from the beginning of the release of Online mode. Players love to do heist because it’s a fun thing to do in the game + it’s the best way earning the in-game money. Lots of things you must prepare before you do the heist and when the day comes, you have to work together so the heist can be a success.
If you want some challenge, play the stunt mode where you will be tested to do the unimaginable stunts. There will be a lot of stunts you can choose in the Online gameplay and each of them will give a different challenge for you.
If you never like any of activities above, just do a simple nonsense shooting in free roam with other people. The problem is, just don’t get triggered easily because there are lots of jokers and trolls in the online gameplay.
Rockstar North never uses the game engine from outside of their corporation. They make their own game engine to build GTA V. The game engine for this game is Rockstar Advanced Game Engine or RAGE. This game began in development in the year of 2009 with more than 1000 people involved to make this game awesome. The result is a great game with amazing graphics that almost close to realistic.
GTA V is the dream of every boy where they can shoot, blast, and run over people without ever feeling guilty or got in jail for doing so. This game is best examples of how cruel a man can be. But it’s a good thing for people who love violence on everything.
Now, we have come to the part that makes GTA V famous. It’s not a GTA game if it’s not getting critics for its controversies. There are lots of people criticize this game down to its knee.
>> By The Book mission
One huge controversy is the mission called “By The Book” it’s a mission where Michael and Trevor were told to go to a warehouse where they must locate a target and assassinate a target of FIB that was suspicious for terrorism. While Michael went to kill the target, Trevor stayed at the warehouse to torture an informant named Ferdinand Kerimov to give the location of the target with the name of Jahir Tavan.
To get information out of Kerimov, the player will play as Trevor and torture the informant with all the horrifying tools like cable jumper, wrench, and even water boarding. This scene is the one that gets so much criticism among people. It said that this mission is too violence because of the use of such horrific tools for the interrogation.
>> Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan once filed a lawsuit to the Rockstar North for creating a character with her likeness.
>> Change.org Petition
People of Australia criticized the game deeply and ended in a petition that made an Australian game store to pull out all the GTA V product from the market.
>> Bad Portrait of Women
Some reviewers claimed that this game showing a bad portrait of women. Women in GTA V were treated like trash. Those reviewers are mostly right because almost in every GTA games, the portrayal of women was never very good. The women only exist to get killed or being objectified by the men in the story of the game.
Apart from the tremendous critics, this game still holds the world record for the most successful video games ever made in history. I think it’s best we see that this is just a video game where we can have our own extreme fantasy about the world and we won’t get jail because of it. Don’t think this too seriously because it’s a game and games supposed to be the media where we can escape from the reality of the world. My final words will be: if you don’t like it, don’t play it. That’s all the GTA V review from me today, I hope you all can see the game like the way I see it through this review.
