Grand Theft Auto V is the fifth installment of the Grand Theft Auto series developed by Rockstar North. The action-adventure game follows three criminals as they plan a major heist. You must complete this mission without getting caught by the authorities or rival gang leaders. While the mission is the main objective of the game, you can venture off into the game’s open-world environment. This allows you to interact with the establishments of the city or freely roam the countryside of Los Santos. While GTA V for Windows is a good game for PC gamers, it's important to know that it takes up 8GB of RAM and 72 GB of hard disk space.
Grand Theft Auto for PC has features that its console versions do not have. The most notable one is being able to play from a first-person perspective. Compared to a third-person view, you’re able to see the shootouts, robberies, and police chases as you would in real life. This feature was added by the developers to help players be fully engaged in the mission, especially if they’re a fan of action films. The game references many movies like Heat and Lethal Weapon so they have upgraded their graphics to 4K resolution.
The open-world concept of GTA V has also allowed developers to add more details such as animals, weather effects, and DLC vehicles. While they do not change the dynamic of the game, it helps facilitate a true-to-life experience. You can share your gaming experience with other players by recording it. Rockstar Editor is Grand Theft Auto 5’s built-in screen recording tool. It was developed to let you play and record simultaneously.
Apart from the editor is the Director Mode. It is a control center that allows you to change the dynamics of the GTA world and its characters. You can change something as simple as the camera angles, depth of field effects, and scoring. Should you want to poke fun at your characters, you can select modifiers like low gravity, flaming bullets, and invincibility. With your modifications in place, you can proceed to play the game and record it as well.
Unlike the first four installments of the GTA series, Grand Theft Auto 5 is set in one city, Los Santos. Throughout the game, you will take on the roles of three characters: Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. In the first half of the game, you will be meeting the characters one by one. Only in the latter half of the game will you be working together in a final heist. You must maximize their special abilities to gain the advantage during missions, which are as follows:
Trevor’s Red Mist inflicts serious damage on others without severely damaging himself.
Franklin’s Driving Focus helps to maneuver across the city quickly.
Michael’s Bullet Time enables him to aim at enemies more precisely.
It’s important to note that these capabilities can be used for a limited amount of time as it drains the character’s stamina. You can increase their skills so when they use their abilities more efficiently. For example, you can bring Michael to a shooting range or shoot more enemies so his accuracy will increase.
Stand-out action adventure
Grand Theft Auto V packages three distinct storylines with graphics that mimic real-life scenery, allowing both new players and fans of the franchise to experience something new. The addition of new capabilities and skills also enables players to be more engaged with the game. Altogether, these features are worth using the 8GB of memory and 72 GB of HDD space.
