GTA 5’s open world map was so ahead of its time that it’s no surprise that people are still flocking to it 10 years later

GTA 5 turns 10 today. One decade, 10 years, 120 months, 521 weeks and 3,652 days after Michael, Franklin and Trevor terrorized the game’s false slant in Los Angeles, Los Santos. At the time of writing, the fifth installment in Rockstar’s main perennial crime simulator series is ranked seventh on the list of most played games on Steam; It competes with the likes of Starfield and Baldur’s Gate 3, and boasts today’s highest concurrent level of over 130,000 players on PC. As you probably know, the game also spanned three full console generations, across the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S cycles.

When it comes to GTA 5, numbers matter. That’s why it became one of the best-selling video games of all time, selling nearly 185 million copies. These numbers are part of the reason why Rockstar is one of the largest and most valuable game developers in the industry today, and also partly why it’s set to celebrate 25 years of existence later this year.
