Rockstar Games unleash a short, simple, tweet to world: #GTAV and a link to their website. There she was, in all her glory, the official GTA V logo splashed across the Newswire with nothing more than a date for the first trailer.

Join us every day as we count down to Los Santos through the GTA V marketing campaign.

I was in my house, coming from the university, and then saw a Twitter and Facebook announcement, came here to GTAForums after like 5 months without logging in. And almost had a heart-attack! I started laughing histerically and those were some long seven days. One of the greatest moments ever, I was a member of the forum and everyone started speculating with the logo. People said it was going to be in Washington or Las Vegas because of the Five logo looking like a dollar. Holy sh*t, never thought it would take this long to be released sad.gif

You don't have to answer the questions in the post by the way, they are just general ones, answer in any way you want smile.gif

I remember just feeling surprised and overwhelmed, that we were getting an annoucement and a trailer a week later so soon after talking about a game we weren't even sure existed for months on end. Felt great though. That confirmation we all wanted.

Amazing news, what a shocker! In true Rockstar fashion, today we have been surprised  biggrin.gif

I think it's more interesting to ask everyone what they will be doing the coming 30 days. Wether they'll avoid this board because of spoilers and wether they'll play other GTA's the coming months.

I'll start coming here less when the game is out, and starting tomorrow I'm going for 100% in San Andreas to get that San Andreas feeling back.
