One of the most successful sand box games of all time, GTA has come a long way. From the top down machine gun blasting, mayhem building gameplay to the sleek third person action movie style adventure that we have today. 

GTA 5 was released way back in 2013 (2014 on PS4/XBOX1). Building upon a beautiful next Gen engine, GTA then proceeded to do something that not too many other developers have done. Instead of going for the all to often regular NEXT GAME IN THE FRANCHISE route, GTA went on to release several content  packs, ranging from Beach Bum pack/ Doomsday Heist/ Lowriders and many others.

Compared to other games that release a new game in the franchise almost annually, IE - FIFA, NBA2K, Need For Speed, Madden, Call Of Duty and others.

Rockstar has in essence released 1 game that has lasted over 5 years with continued DLC packs. Has GTA 5 perfected the way DLC should be handled ?

Nope, GTA 5 has been handled absolutely atrociously DLC wise. Couldn't give a fuck about any of the multiplayer stuff so there's pretty much nothing that's been released so far. GTA 4 handled DLC so much better than 5.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Are these DLC packs monetized? Is there micro-transactions in the game?



GTA V doesnt really need much DLC imo, the original game already has so much content.

Ding ding! Agree with this. Of course, there are many who wouldn't agree, and the......mildly impressive numbers GTA V has support this to....some degree. But, yeah, really miss the story based DLC.

Not monetised, but there's definitely micro-transactions in the game, and people who want the DLC content ASAP instead of having to save up for it you may well pay for the micro-transactions.

Kind of this. Another point of view I kind of like is that it's wonderful that since there's no interesting DLC, there's nothing you have an urge to pay for.

I'm not sure that the impressive GTA V numbers come from the online DLC though. I wouldn't even be surprised if a lot of buyers don't know about the online part.



The best GTA game was SA, followed by VC and then 5. 5 is let down by a sub par story and lack of RPG elements from SA. So frankly Rockstar was BETTER when they were doing annual franchise releases. they've become lazy and slow.

I agree. GTA 5 is such a fantastic game, my favourite game of the last decade I suppose. It's such a shame that there's never been any story/singleplayer DLC, just the multiplayer/online DLC I don't care about. Would have loved to spend some more time with the game.

GTA 4 in comparison was so much worse in my opinion, I didn't even finish the game. But apparently it had fantastic story/singleplayer DLC.
