Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC!

The much awaited and many delayed release of Grand Theft Auto on PC is FINALLY here! I must emphasize the frustration in the delays by Rockstar, but with that said they it appears they have had an extremely successful launch on the PC platform. It was well worth the wait.

gta5Playing GTA5 at 60 fps is really the way it was meant to be played. I have played GTA5 on PS3 and can honestly say it is terrible in comparison. The game play experience on PS3 is sluggish in performance, even laggy at times, and locked at 30 fps @ 720p. If you can even sustain 30 fps that is.


The visual quality of the game at 60fps @ 1080p (an supports 4K) on PC is a miles ahead even on the new-gen consoles. You no longer need to cut back on the graphic quality settings of the game because of console hardware limitations and restrictions. You are free to enjoy all the game has to offer only limited on the hardware of your PC.

GTA5 for PC also supports custom music. Simply add music you want to hear in the game to your “%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\User Music\” folder. You could use a Windows shortcut it you prefer and it supports WAV, MP3, WMA, M4A formats.
