The once-shocking, now 16-year-old videogame series Grand Theft Auto is back, with a fifth installment released Tuesday. Called “the best plotted, most playable, character-driven, fictionally coherent entry” by The New York Times, the videogame is set in a version of Southern California and follows three controllable characters. An analyst has predicted that the new game will make $1 billion in retail sales over the next month, and others say it could sell 20 million copies by March.
