We have asked loyal Grand Theft Auto 5 players what they love about the game and here are their comments:
“I think it’s the degree of freedom which the game offers the players. You see, people need a break from reality. Everyone does… You can literally do anything you want in-game and not worry about some SWAT team busting in on you. And medically, this releases endorphins and i guess some dopamine too.”

“The reason it became a success was of the realism the game was put through and Rockstar Games showed how action and adventure games could be more “logical”, and Grand Theft Auto 5 did exactly that.”
“If you like dense open world sandbox games, this is the new gold standard. Even my absolute favorite open world sandbox game -Saints Row 2- I would have trouble saying this one isn’t objectively “better” just because it provides a lot to do.”
