I bought a hard copy of GTA5 but was unable to get it to work through my poor iNet connection, so I purloined a cracked version for me to play solo on my own machine, which was always what I wanted to do. It's a great game, I'm an explorer by heart and my way to enjoy this game is to explore everything that I can. The game engine is very robust and difficult to fool
I don't have any qualms using a cracked version given I have the hard copy (with map) on my shelf, but it does mean I've been unable to play any online version of this. Not a great loss for me, but I do see that other people have a scream playing it.
