As predicated GTA 5 received rave reviews from almost every single gaming magazine and site. On November 18th 2014 GTA 5 finally dropped on current gen consoles. (PS4, Xbox One)
From the initial release date the PC community has been chomping at the bit, asking Rockstar for details on a PC release. The initial replies at launch were disheartening to say the least.

As time went by rumors and breadcrumbs started to accumulate and it seemed that GTA 5 was indeed coming to PC. After being delayed three times the game finally came out.
"Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible." -Rockstar Games
