GTA – All You Need to Know About It If You Are Playing It for the First Time

Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is a video game and the first in a series of highly successful releases from Rockstar Games. Rockstar Games have released versions for Windows, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Playstation Portable, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS. The game contains many violent scenes and material that some people consider unsuitable for children. The player controls a criminal in a large, designated city. 

The player’s goal is to perform tasks for various crime lords and organizations. These tasks may involve killing other criminals, stealing cars or performing heists like bank robberies. The player receives money for completing these tasks, which can be used to buy property, vehicles or weapons. The following details will explain what GTA is about, how to play it, and what to expect from the newest instalment of this legendary game. 

Tips to Play GTA –

  • Money Management 

The amount of money the player earns depends on the progress made and the possibility of completing a task. The player can buy weapons, cars, or property like stores or houses. However, homes cost more than cars or guns. If you don’t play GTA for a more extended period and then start playing it again, your cash may be invested in real estate, and you may not have enough money to buy anything worthwhile.

  • Learn Characters Skills

Each character that you play has his skill level and statistics. For example, it makes some characters better at shooting or driving than others. It is best to play through the game thoroughly so that you will recognize the skills of the characters and choose better ones for each mission. Some characters are also stronger or faster than others.

  • Pick a Target 

The player can always switch between characters, and each character has a storyline that he has to follow through. The player may play single missions with one character while using another to do tasks in different locations on the map. The player can get help from other criminal groups to complete tasks more efficiently or with less risk of problems.

  • Frequently Visit Ammu-Nation

The store sells weapons, and there are also shooting ranges where you can improve your skills as a shooter. When you visit Ammu-Nation, your character will be supplied with more ammo for the weapon that he is currently using. During missions, it is helpful because you won’t have to bother about ammo that much. If used wisely, it can be very beneficial in completing tasks efficiently.

  • Customize the Character 

You can change the appearance of a character by accessing the Character Creation screen. You can even assign your character a voice by choosing a voice option. In addition, you can decide to make your character more muscular or fatter, taller, bald or with hair. The players can even make their characters look like real people. You can also change a character’s clothes, tattoos, walk style and muscle tone.

Some Major Features –

  • Story 

The game has the main storyline, which takes place in three major cities: Liberty City, San Andreas and Vice City. The player can unlock new missions by completing previous ones. Some tasks are only open after the player has purchased the property in a particular area or finished a side mission. The game also has countless side missions that can be performed on request.

  • Wanted Level 

When you commit violent crimes or if your car is damaged, you will earn Stars for your Wanted Level. After that, the player can be arrested, or the level can go down. When your wanted level is completely gone, you will earn achievement points. You need to earn enough points for the next rank, from one star to two or from two stars to three. After you reach the next level, it will be more difficult to escape from the police because your character will perform better in chases and get more money on jobs when more criminals are involved.

  • Gang Wars 

This feature is meant for multiplayer. When you are in multiplayer mode, the player is given a choice between three gangs: The Grove Street Families, Los Santos Vagos and Ballas. The player must choose a team and join it. Each gang will need different missions. For example, the players may need to attack a rival gang or help another gang achieve specific objectives. Another task will be to assassinate leaders of other gangs.

  • Grand Theft Auto Online 

Players can buy properties, cars and weapons with game money. They can create a character on a GTA V website and use it in single-player mode or multiplayer mode. The players can also use this website to buy properties that they can use in single-player mode. Weapons can be purchased from stores on a massive map of Los Santos and the surrounding area.

  • Vehicles 

The most prominent feature of the game is the ability of the player to call any car on demand. The player can drive any vehicle and pull various stunts with it. It adds some realism to the game since it is difficult to hit a car at high speeds by shooting at it. The player can also choose which kind of vehicle he chooses for different missions.

  • Map Layout 

The map layout is significant; it is divided into blocks called districts, car spawning spots, crime syndicates, stores, airfields and other amenities. The newest addition to the series is Grand Theft Auto V, released on September 17, 2013. GTA V is set in the fictional city of Los Santos and its metropolitan area, based on modern-day Los Angeles. The player controls three characters: Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, and Franklin Clinton, the game’s three lead protagonists.

Grand Theft Auto is one of the best video games that have been released in recent years. It has excellent graphics and a good storyline that displays characters doing crimes and how they get caught. The game has an exciting storyline, and there are many side-missions as well, making it a highly entertaining game for all age groups.
