In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past nine years and haven’t set foot in the glamorous city of Los Santos, we will provide you with a GTA V review to change your mind. 

Even though it’s been nine years since GTA V came out, the game is still preposterously fun, offering a sharp-tongued satire of contemporary America. After playing the game, you might feel that Rockstar developed this wickedly comic game just to mock modern-day America, the millennial generation, the middle class, the media, and celebrities. Set in the superficial city of Los Santos that represents a warped image of Los Angeles, this gruelingly amusing game is filled with crime and debauchery.
