GTA has its faults. Rampant sexism. That torture scene. All need addressing. Big time.
BUT. BUT. As a sandbox, nothing, nothing does is like this. It is, if not one of the best, then one of the most impressive games ever. Above is a snap shot of an hour and a half of GTA. Every hour and a half in GTA is like this. Ebb and flow, Trevor, Michael and Franklin chasing the money. They scam, get scammed and kill folk. They smoke dope in front of their TVs, pour a glass of scotch, make crystal meths and drive cars really fast. A lot.
GTA5 isn't perfect, it is a flawed, sometimes terribly flawed, diamond. But when you catch it in the right light it shines like nothing else.
