Grand Theft Auto V has just been released and it’s already changing the landscape of the gaming world. From its advanced graphics, leaps and bounds above even the last game, to its movie quality story and rich, multi-dimensional characters, GTA V has the capability to significantly alter how games are made from this point forward. It’s almost undoubted that game studios are already looking for ways to replicate the successes of GTA V, dissect what works and try to fit it into their current projects.
And why shouldn’t they? Grand Theft Auto V made $800,000,000 on its first day of release alone. Within three days, it had already topped $1 billion, and experts have argued that if there were a PC version, it would have been closer to an opening day of $1.3 billion. This game continues to break records for sales and has received some of the most consistently good reviews of any triple A game in quite some time. Studios that aren’t looking to replicate what works about this game are missing out.
Because the game is entertaining, exciting, and full of content, a number of YouTube users have found different ways to approach looking at it, from its graphics to its Easter eggs. These are the top 4 GTA V YouTubers that you should be following.
