The Grand Theft Auto franchise has been beloved for a while now, ever since the early days of the game where it featured top-down pixelated graphics, that despite everything still made it an immensely fun game to play. The game has progressed in terms of gameplay and graphics, with Grand Theft Auto V being the latest title in the franchise.
Rockstar’s long-awaited sequel to Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 4 was finally released back in 2013, about 5 years after its predecessor. It turned out to be a massive hit for Rockstar and Take-Two where the game reportedly went on to earn a whopping $1 billion in the first three days that it was made available.

When it comes to successful video game franchises, it’s hard to deny that Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto is one of them. The game had initially started out as a top-down 2D almost 8-bit like game about stealing cars and completing missions, but it has over the years evolved into a beautiful 3D third-person game that is loved by many.
The thing about multiplayer aspects about games is because you’re pretty much playing with new and different players all the time that every session is a different experience. This is versus single-player where once you’re done with the story and you’ve run through it a couple of times, that’s pretty much it.
There’s some great news for GTA Online players. Rockstar is commemorating the third anniversary of Grand Theft Auto Online by giving away $250K in-game cash bonus to all players.

Yesterday it was reported that Samsung had filed a DMCA takedown request on a YouTube video which showed off a GTA 5 mod that used a Note 7-lookalike in the game as a bomb.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 recall was one of the biggest tech stories last month. The company decided to recall each and every unit it shipped following the release of its new flagship in August.
