Hey everyone, I'm wondering if any of you picked up GTA V for PC.

I always like to see the progression of games. When I tried to run GTA IV on my rig, it didn't run so well. It ran like crap, actually, and that's because it was ported terribly. The same happened to me with Far Cry 3—it didn't run too smoothly.

Funny enough, GTA V—with its higher graphics and more intense gameplay—runs almost like butter. I like how a game producer can crank up the graphics and still make it run better than its predecessor. The same goes with Far Cry 4: better graphics, better runnability.

So, have any of you picked up the PC version of GTA V? I know I have, and I gotta say, it's definitely the best version out there. To top if all off, you can even mods to it, and there's even a trucking mod.

What are your thoughts? If you bought it, do you like it? If you haven't, are you considering purchasing it?

Well I torrented a cracked version of GTA V (shut up I'm pretty poor compared to you :P ) to test it on my PC. It ran like total s**t. Something like 10 FPS at lowest settings .My PC is basically has a potato for a CPU, and GPU is comparable with a wooden board. Oh well, maybe next year I'll get a proper gaming rig :)

I can't say I've never torrented...in fact, GTA V may have been the first PC game I've purchased.

I have GTA V, but only for PS3 ! :p I will not buy it on PC, because I don't even play it on PS3 (since about 2 months).

I've not played GTA5 yet, although my friend was playing it on Skype and it looked pretty good, huge improvement to the previous versions :)

My PC only just runs ETS - I'd hate to smell it running GTA V. Yes, I said smell it, the burning of my GPU and CPU...

Old-ish thread, but I have GTA V for the PC. Runs flawlessly. I prefer the previous generation GTA though.

The AI in V is so infuriating. Other than that... not too many complaints. Played story mode twice (second time for max cash), online play can be enjoyable depending on lobby, overall game was worth its purchase price.

I do not have it for PC but I really want to get it for PC. Right now all I have it for is the Xbox 360.

Me too, I have GTA V on PS3 but I want it on PC because (almost) all of my friends have the game on PC..

I play both games, and GTA V runs smoother than ETS2 :)

Thats one reason I want it but also because, I love mods... And so far the mods that I saw come out for GTA 5 is amazing.

I'll torrent it to test it, if it runs well I'll buy it if it's on sale somewhere.:oops:

I won't buy a game I already have on PS3 if it runs like crap/looks worse or whatever for 60 bucks, thank you very much.

Yeah yeah, I posted that I have a new PC in the other thread, but I am just so completly not used to having a good PC. :confused: I was in shock when I found out today that I can easily run BeamNG drive with 40-60 fps, playing on the biggest map. With my old PC I didn't even think about even starting that map up anymore.:(

In most of games PCs can override/overclock Almost the Performance and also PCs are more capable in almost all the games that you could play with Controllers and as so as make your game.
