It is crazy to think that it has been 8 years since we first got to play GTA 5. There have been revamped versions since then with the Xbox One and PS4 generation of consoles having a remastered version and there is even another remaster coming for the Xbox Series X and the PS5 - and it sounds like it will look and feel like it has been made for the current generation of gaming.


One of the reasons that the game has remained popular, even while we all eagerly await the smallest details of GTA 6, is that it gave us GTA Online which is like a whole game all onto itself and it is one that has had countless updates that have given players new things to do.
