Grand Theft Auto V

The fifth installment of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series promises to be, fittingly, five times the size of Red Dead Redemption's open world, suggesting at least five cousins who insist on playing pool with you while you're trying to do something, who then get five times as mad when you turn them down. Or maybe not: The latest chapter in the series marks a return to the California stand-in of San Andreas—specifically the faux-L.A. of Los Santos, with its sprawling hills, beaches, and tennis courts where you can slaughter people—and with three playable protagonists with varying degrees of sociopathic tendencies, it's probable you'll be way too busy pulling off elaborate heists and flying jets and stuff to bother with trying to foster friendships. (Still, the family of that one "retired" bank robber guy looks kinda needy.)
