There’s no doubt Grand Theft Auto V is a fantastic game. It’s no coincidence it’s also one of the best selling games ever made, still showing up on the bestseller list four years after its initial release. But that’s not to say it’s perfect.
Just look at the torture sequence in the campaign. It seems included just to raise controversy, which it certainly did. Then there’s the loading screen that never ends or how about the idea that you can explore an entire modern city, but can hardly enter any of the buildings? Or what about those controls? For such a high profile game, why does it feel so imprecise to move around? Even the trio of main characters leaves much to be desired.
If you play GTA Online, you might have noticed the pricing of all the items has steadily risen over the years. If you bought the game on last-gen consoles when it first launched, heaven help you if you wanted to keep playing online after 2015. Then, there are the problems you’ll inevitably have when trying to connect to the server (it’s not always reliable). If you don’t want to play online, you were probably looking forward to single-player DLC. Guess what? It never arrived. Finally, we have to touch on the graphics. They may have looked fine when GTA 5 first launched in 2013, but they’re not much to look at now.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is a great game. It’s one of the best to launch this decade. But it isn’t perfect. Without further ado, here is everything wrong with GTA 5 in 12 minutes or less.
