This evening, after work, I helped out with a robbery, drove like a lunatic, pulled a stripper and took part in a jet ski chase through the canals of Los Santos.
This, as people who read my blog on a day-to-day basis, is not real life. This…is…Grand Theft Auto V.
It’s my 32nd birthday today. Elle bought me tickets to the Danny Elfman’s Music from the Movies of Tim Burton, as well as a Coca Cola t-shirt. I also got some money…and there was only one thing that was getting spent on…
So at lunch, I headed to Tescos in Batley, only to find they had no copies of GTAV left. I posted about it on Facebook. Then one of my friends said ASDA in Morley had loads of copies…I got there…they had none! So my last ditch effort was Toys R Us. And finally, after a 50 minute tour of Birstall, Batley and Morley, I had Grand Theft Auto.
And it’s a cracking game. All the old elements of fun are there….basically all the insane carnage we all love to play about with. I hammered about five hours this evening. I just can’t get enough!
I even got a birthday well-wish on Facebook from Alex Zane, which was nice.
