I found this game extremely addicting. Having the option of using stealth or going in guns blazing is extremely fun. This game has NO limits. The ENTIRE story mode is a cliff hanger. After you complete a mission you can't stand to wait until you start the next one. GTA V has an unreal story line. The online is exceptional. It's very open and it allows you to explore the San Andreas world with friends. Stealing Jets from military bases to simply "pimping" out your car. The details that Rockstar manged to put in this game are unthinkable. ROCKSTAR HAS DONE WORK.
A very grand scale game, with an excellent set of AI for all NPC characters, marvelous concepts and ideas for multiplayer, basically it's one of the ideal open world games taking place in the modern day. My only issue is it's racial tendencies and it's use of too much language. Realistically very few people drop "f-bombs" nearly that often, which makes me think the designers simply pushed their own standards for language on the public. Other than that experience-ruining detail, it's a very good game and I recommend it highly to anyone looking for multiplayer fun, open world exploration, and/or a good storyline.
