Surprising no one, Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a smashing debut on PC, quickly becoming the most played third-party game on Steam just days after its release. With its detailed customization options, exclusive video editor and additional radio station, gamers who already owned the game are finding plenty of reasons to jump back into Los Santos.
Starting tomorrow, many gamers are going to be faced with a difficult choice. Is it worth paying for Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, even if you already own it on console?

I think it’s fair to assume that most gamers are glad to see 2014 in the rear-view mirror. There were a few incredible successes in the video game industry, but 2014 will be remembered for its disappointments.

We’ve written a lot about what happens when an iPhone user switches to Android (and vice-versa) but it’s been a while since we’ve written about a longtime Mac user who has switched to using a Windows-based PC.
