    Nice to have it free, by now I guess most people already have a copy in their steam library, if not you waited out for so long :)

  • Awesome! Almost bought it a couple of weeks ago.

  • waiting for this post to break records - most upvoted

  • Wow… this is generous.
    Already have it… I'm sure lots of people do.

    But, if you don't… make sure you don't miss this!

    • Not really that generous. It's an old game, and they'll be hoping that a couple of players will hop online and become microtransaction whales to make up the losses, which they will.

    • I don't have the game. I will add it to library for sake of completeness but this is one game I personally will never play which is why I would have preferred any other game, especially Rocket League or another set of games (as Batman) such as a Lego 6-Pack or Lego Superhero Pack or something like that.

      • Not sure why you were negged? I’m in the almost exactly same situation, i.e. will add it to my growing free collection but likely won’t touch it anytime soon.

      • You're missing out. It's one of the most engaging and fun games.

        • I am just not into some of the stuff going on in that game. Same with all GTA games.
          And if people want to neg me because they cannot accept that there are some people who draw a line re certain violence and other things in games so be it.

          • @Lysander: I don't get the negs either, but if you play GTA V online, you'll understand the calibre of person I guess.

            I can see why you'd disagree with the content, it's pretty full on.

            The worrying thing is how many parents have bought it for their kids. That's bad parenting 101.

            One of my mates bought it for his son and my sister-in-law bought it for hers. I warned them but they said "oh my kids fine, he's pretty smart. He'll be ok" until they watched the gameplay.

            I guess there's something unnerving about watching your 10 year old play a game wherein the protagonist "makes love" to a "pharmaceutical distributor's girlfriend" in an "uncomfortable place" and then "assists" her boyfriend to end his life using his boot all while screaming some colourful language.

            It's almost as if they should put a rating on it so that parents can determine if it's suitable for their children or not.

            Again, I can definitely understand why you'd not feel comfortable playing this one.

            • @imurgod: No, bad parenting is not putting in the effort to really understand/know your kids. Age ratings are a guide for lazy parents, plenty of children are very capable of being exposed to things like this without it affecting them.

              I haven't played GTA online so perhaps the scene you're describing goes too far, but I was allowed to play/watch similar things to the main game as a child and it didn't cause any harm whatsoever.

              • @callum9999: Same here, but society has to walk as slow as the slowest member.

                • @imurgod: You couldn't possibly agree with me if you think letting a child play this is "bad parenting 101"…

                  Regulations need to be aimed at the "slowest members" of society, but our opinions don't need to be! Should GTA V be classified as an adult game? Absolutely. Are some children mature enough to play adult games? Absolutely.

                  • @callum9999: That's a ridiculous statement unless you've never played GTA V.

                    If you think that content is suitable for children, you're morally bankrupt.

                    • @imurgod: I don't think you know what the term morally bankrupt actually means…

                      I would also say the irrefutable fact that millions of children play GTA V (and every single GTA game before it) without incurring any harm whatsoever proves it is indeed suitable for SOME children.

                      Though I guess that would require you to actually think about it logically (what exactly do you think they're being exposed to that they aren't in everyday life?), which I know is a major struggle for the majority of people on this site.

                      • @callum9999: So by your thinking, you think it's fine for kids to be exposed to murder, rape, etc.


                        • @imurgod: If you don't think kids are already exposed to murder, rape etc. then you're living in cloud cuckoo land…

                          • @callum9999: My kids aren't. In what context is, say, a 7 or 8 year old exposed to that stuff?

                            • @imurgod: The news? TV shows? Films? YouTube? Even history lessons at school…

                              Though given I never said 7 year olds should be playing, that's a stupid example. Can you genuinely not grasp the difference between a 7 year old and a 17 year old playing GTA, or are you creating a dishonest argument because it's too weak otherwise?

                              Though I'd also be willing to bet that your 7 year old has indeed been told or watched something involving murder. It's absolutely everywhere (even the Simpsons has murders in it - how on EARTH have you not noticed…).

                              • @callum9999: a 17 year old is 1 year away from being an adult. We were discussing kids. When one refers to a "kid" they assume a child, not someone mere days from being an adult. You're trying to skew this argument to suit you now because you've lost.

                                Hell, I even referred to my mate's 10 year old in my earlier post. I guess you're one of those people who don't read past the headings (further evidenced by the post where you thought I was agreeing with you, despite me saying I had also grown up watching that stuff).

                                You're also trying to compare a videogame containing gratuitous violence and promoting same to history lessons or news.

                                Yep, they're the same thing! Can you genuinely not grasp the difference between education and world events and a videogame? (and you talk about weak arguments.. sheesh!).

                                I also can't recall the depiction of a crack whore being raped by Homer Simpson before he stomps her boyfriend to death. Can you tell me which episode of The Simpsons that is?

                                Maybe you're right and I haven't noticed these things in the Simpsons.

                                Man, I wouldn't have bothered replying had I been you. It really hasn't helped you at all.

    The amount of free games I’ve gotten from Epic is amazing. I’ve yet to spend a single dollar in the store.

    Wow that makes no sense. Absolutely no sense GTA5 free for life, all the licensed tracks on epic store front wth 😮 I'm more then shocked.

    Hold on GTA 5 wasn't built in some part with unreal decades ago was it, because I know the license for the destruction and physics in GTA 5 came from Ea's blessings (with money of course) built within the rage engine. (All that deformation) meaning:

    installments in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. In 2004, Criterion Games was acquired by Electronic Arts, which led Rockstar Games to switch from RenderWare, and open RAGE Technology Group as a division of Rockstar San Diego. RAGE Technology Group started developing what would later become RAGE, based on Rockstar San Diego's previous Angel Game Engine.

    So what does rockstar have to offer epic studios that Microsoft could not.

    But no idea how gta6 wil manage as Ea owns the rights to burnouts physics, and rockstars license had expired.

  • Can't wait until RDR2 becomes free in 2025!
