Grand Theft Auto V’s Steam reviews are ‘Overwhelmingly Negative’ as OpenIV is closed

Grand Theft Auto V has had startling longevity, owing to its complex online and detailed open world that provides gamers with an almost unfathomable amount of stuff to do. Even outside of its lauded story, I still play Grand Theft Auto V for things like its tennis, golf, and the peyote animal trips.
