    There's no point in looking at canon in GTA games as they all contradict each other. This stuff makes Elder Scrolls look consistent.

    No, the games as themselves are pretty much small gangster stories about different characters.

    Trying to give the series any deeper analysis only brings out the negatives in each incarnation.
    They are dumb over the top sandbox games which poke fun at America.

    People who take them seriously miss the point.

    I don't see how they contradict each other. If you're talking about stuff like city designs, characters not being mentioned, vehicle designs, etc, that's because there are 3 eras to the franchise. the 2D Era, 3D Era and HD Era. Things that happen in one era doesn't effect another.

    Each GTA is it's own self contained story so events from previous installments are more like callbacks than anything. GTA V however does change some stuff up which is a major complaint about the game on GTAForums.

    Quoted for truth. I delved into the lore pretty heavily not too long back. It is there. I still remember buying the original GTA for PC when it came out and playing it all night while my friends played outside for my birthday.

    I'm debating starting Grand Theft Online but I'm terrified the whole thing won't be worth it experience wise and the player base.

    I may just buy Grand Theft Auto IV again.

    It's hands down my favorite in the series and one of the few games I think that holds up as a serious social critique.

    GTAO is really not worth it. Take it from me, it's community is more toxic than CoD's somehow. The encourages griefing and the little kid ratio is somehow worse.

    Essentially, everything in GTAO costs 6 to 7 figures yet jobs pretty much pay out 30k to 50k for 15 minutes of work. You either buy microtransactions (grossly overpriced, $100 real life dollars can't even purchase you half the new content in most updates) or you grind freeroam work. FR work is essentially buying a facility (usually 2 million) grinding "source missions" that gives you resources to sell (which can take hours to fill) and then risk selling it in a public lobby with people in "memecars" (weaponized vehicles that you can't destroy lest you pay their 25k insurance) trying their hardest to kill you (for $2000) and waste your time. All so you can make a few hundred thousand, christ.

    GTAO may look fun, but much like Skyrim, looks aren't everything.

    I love Skyrim but that sounds hideous.

    GTAO is fun if you've got like a whole 6-8 friends to play with and play custom races and modes, like if it was an AAA Garry's Mod. Other than that, it's an extremely bare bones MMO. You could try doing the heists, ideally with the aforementioned friends/mates, but once you're done with that you've pretty much seen everything.

    GTA V has sold 85 million copies and is now the all time highest selling video game.

    Coolio. Still waiting for GTA VI. That'd be great. Don't really care much about read dead 3 tbh. Especially because it's called red dead redemption 2. While being a prequel and having a story not related to redemption. You fucking wot m8?
