Grand Theft Auto V Trailer

Those my age have pretty much grown up with this franchise, and though I didn’t care much for GTA4, nothing will ever take away from the sheer brilliance of the first three instalments and their various spinoffs (Vice City is one of the greatest games ever, and that’s not up for debate).

For me, what’s exciting here is seeing just how this series has evolved and remains one of the barometers for gaming generally. From the bird’s eye view camera with relatively random acts of crime in the original GTA to what comes across as a near-cinematic experience in this upcoming edition, it’s a perfect evolutionary chart for how video games have grown. The trailer demonstrates how GTA is probably going to remain the benchmark for some time to come, with some decent graphical work supplemented by what appears to be a Pulp Fiction-esque crossover story, with the protagonists’ seperate lives slowly intertwining. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited for a game, and I can’t wait for more to emerge on this one.
