Wednesday, Rockstar released the first official trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. It seems like it’s been an eternity since Grand Theft Auto V was released; Grand Theft Auto IV was released in 2008.
The trailer opens with people running down the boardwalk of a coastal city. In the opening there are people walking along the beach and women doing yoga-the typical scene for a beach neighborhood. The opening of the trailer is very laid back and chill (If you play GTA, you know that isn’t going to last long). The trailer is borderline, humdrum. Looking at the trailer, it looks like the team at Kotaku was on point wit their L.A. claim. With the combo of coastal towns and a street signs labeled “Vine” (a very popular street in Los Angeles), you can probably look forward to GTA taking place in the “city of angels”.

But if you agree and think the trailer looks a tad lame, don’t let the opening of the trailer fool you. Just as laid back as the scene appears to be in the opening, a few minutes into the trailer- the insanity begins. A burglary is underway, followed by a car explosion and a helicopter chase. Though it may take a while before the blood-splattering, high speed criminal ecstasy begins, GTA V looks like it is going to BRING IT. I’m still hooked on GTA IV and I am cracking my knuckles just waiting for the release of this number 5!
Rumor has it that the Ray Liotta-voiced protagonist Tommy Vercetti from Vice City will return, but there has been no confirmation. Another rumor is that Grand Theft Auto V will offer more than one playable character. On the flip side, more news claims that an unnamed narrator arriving in Los Angeles is looking to put his life back together but is unable to leave his criminal past. (Just a thought: If you have a criminal past and you want to get on the straight and narrow, I am not so sure Los Angeles is the place to do it. Just sayin’!) There are also images of homeless people gathered under overpasses and begging for money. (I live in Los Angeles. This sounds EXACTLY like Los Angeles). There are also scenes of bikers gathering for the usual “meetings” in undisclosed locationjs.
Make no mistake GTA 5 will deliver just as they all have. There is a reason why GTA has a reputation filled with controversy. Take- Two has sold a mind-blowing 114 million Grand Theft Auto games since the series debuted, in 1997. I would bet my entire GTA series that once GTA 5 is released we’ll be hearing how Take-Two has sold over 150 million Grand Theft Auto Games.
We can probably bank of the fact that Grand Theft Auto 5 will, of course get an “M” rating. What fun would it be if it was “PG”? Let’s be real. Though I agree people of a certain age should stay away from the game, I have a hard time believing that GTA 5 ever encouraged anyone to go crazy on an L.A. freeway. All In know is I’m ready to get crazy addicted to this g
