I honestly don't remember, I remember though YouTube recommended me GTA V's first trailer and I saw it then. I expected a release in 2012 back then but how wrong was I.

QUOTE (Kirsty)

I honestly don't remember, I think it was just another normal day. Like I said already YouTube recommended it to me so I guess I was watching random videos over there.

QUOTE (Kirsty)
What was your first reaction?

I don't quite remember to be honest. I thought the game would be great, the trailer was fantastic and I was seeking more information on the game soon. The info hadn't come as soon as I had expected though.

I honestly don'... Unfortunately I wasn't a member back then in this forum. I didn't even know this place existed. I only found this place after I randomly stumbled upon GTAV.net. It looked very different back then. If the information drought didn't happen I don't think I would have found this place.

Tbh, when it was announced, i was just a casual fan at that time, i was not a member of this forum at that time as i'm just a casual fan lol. When i still have my twitter account i saw the announcement and i'm curious to see where will it takes place, then i remember seeing the trailer and i'm just like "well okay its in Los Santos again". To be honest, i dont even remember how i went from casual to a huge fan of GTA, i dont remember how i suddenly got excited for this game, but i feel lucky to be a part of this waiting game.

Where were you? - I was at home just minding my business, never thought about a new GTA in months..
What were you doing? - Gaming, watching YouTube
How did you find out the news? - Was playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 on PC when all of a sudden my friend messaged me on Steam "www.rockstargames.com/V"
What was your first reaction? - I thought he was messing with me or something since me and him have some kind of history with messing with each other but we are extremely close friends since the release of GTA IV on the PC on its first day ever releasing. Anyway
once I clicked on it and saw that huge image I took a few seconds to breath and had a huge grin in my face. If I only knew how big the would be.
Were you a member of these forums? - I did make this account on January that year but I never posted, mostly lurked around here reading my favorite types of threads which were "random moments in (insert game here)", didn't have my first post on this forum until 2012.

I was looking for GTA V news for the last few days before the announcement due to strong rummors about a possible announcement soon, so the morning of October 25th I searched on google GTA V, and then I saw a lot of articles saying "GTA V officialy announced, trailer comming November 2nd", then I ran to R*'s webpage and saw that Huge "Grand Theft Auto V"

I literally screamed of happyness, I was telling my friends " GTA V was announced" they didn't seem to give a f*ck.

I had too many feels to accurately describe what I felt. The weight of the feels I had that day were amazing, knowing that a new GTA was coming. I needed to know, see, hear more about it.

No, but I lurked. Didn't sign up until summer of 2012 after I was wondering why there wasn't any news yet and wanted a community to discuss/wait for V with.

Where were you? At my house, in my room.
What were you doing? Going through YouTube looking at random videos and montages
How did you find out the news? As far as I remember, I believe I saw a video by GTASeriesVideos titled: GTA V Announced (Either that or I found the first trailer immediately). I surprised myself and clicked on it purely out of curiosity. I played the video and saw nothing but the title design and some cool music playing in the background of the video. At first, I was like, "What is this, what is this?!" I became hyped and scrolled down to the comments, and there were a lot of people saying, "OMG, it's true, go to R*'s website!" I go to the website to check it out, and it was true!
What was your first reaction? I was very ecstatic. I was bouncing in my seat, shouting at the screen, "THIS IS REAL, THIS IS REAL! THANK YOU SO MUCH ROCKSTAR!!! Man, were those good times.
Were you a member of these forums? Ha ha, I wasn't. I've encountered this site a couple of times in the past, only because I was looking at it for hope of info and cheats for GTA 4. I thought it was one of those forums that were as dead as a ghost town, but it actually flourished with abundance. I think it was 2010 or 2011 I found all of this out, so I didn't join until a few years later.

Where were you? - School, I'm in a special english group so I actually had that class after normal school hours.
What were you doing? - I was tired and hungry af, and since that day the english class was in the computer lab and it was getting over, I decided to check out if GTA V had been announced (I used to do this DAILY before that day), and I wasn't expecting anything at all, the home page of the browser was this MSN website where there are all kind of news (curiously because I had always checked at gtav.net), and suddenly while scrolling down to the entertainment section (I was just about to go to gtav.net), I see the GTA V logo and my jaw dropped.
How did you find out the news? - That MSN website where you find news about miscellaneous topics.
What was your first reaction? - Got extremely happy, and as soon as the class finished, I ran home to check this forums.
Were you a member of these forums? - No, but I was a lurker.
