@SonictheHeg: Ya, looks like Dan spent the money on microtransactions and now can't afford a razor.

In regards to GTA5 becoming the best selling game of all time I don't think it what a matter of "if" but rather "when". This beast has remained on the top 10 sales charts for what seems like forever.

Kudos and praise is definitely in order for Rockstar but at the same time a part of me wonders what this news says about the state of gaming today.

@videogameninja: I loved the game and this news obviously ensures we get another GTA. However I'm still ticked we didn't get story mode DLC. It seems like they intended the entire game world to be used primarily for GTA Online because there are tons of locations that, on first play through, I figured would be in the story. There's a massive prison, for one, that I was sure would have a mission, but it was never used. Oh and I remember a horse racing track that should have come into play, even if just to bet on races. A lot of wasted space in story mode.
