Let the hype train start rolling:

Grand Theft Auto V Review - IGN

 
Quote:
The Verdict

Grand Theft Auto V is not only a preposterously enjoyable video game, but also an intelligent and sharp-tongued satire of contemporary America. It represents a refinement of everything that GTA IV brought to the table five years ago. It’s technically more accomplished in every conceivable way, but it’s also tremendously ambitious in its own right. No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem. It tells a compelling, unpredictable, and provocative story without ever letting it get in the way of your own self-directed adventures through San Andreas.

It is one of the very best video games ever made.

10/10

People getting it on 360, don't install both discs. Apparently you get noticeably better performance (better frame rate, textures, and less pop-in) just installing the mandatory install disc, and playing off of the other disc.

I have not read any reviews yet but it was at a 98 on Metacritic as of this morning.

There are already people waiting outside the GameStop on 86th and Lexington... pathetic souls (says the 32 year old who took a vacation day to play a video game).

Perfect scores galore. The only negatives I've seen are about vulgarity or violence, which is to be expected for the franchise.

The line for the GameStop on 86th and Lexington literally stretches from the corner of Lexington Ave all the way to Park Avenue, about 4 people thick, and growing.

And this is why I bought stock in Take Two last month.

It's not stretching all the way to Ave of Am?
