I never thought I would say this a month ago.
Not talking about the story here just free roaming and level of fun.
There's just too many dead/dull moments in GTA5 a bit depressing (not as bad as GTA4 though).
GTA5 is still a good game but it for sure doesn't top JC2 at least for me.
I've played JC2 since release (2010) and I still love it to this day.
