Well, my prediction was right... GTA 5 $12.75 at GMG. And it's still April.

Depends, have you ever played the Single Player yet? if not then it's still worth it but if you're thinking on Online then... meh... only if you have friends to play with in my humble opinion.

Are you talking GTA online or the single player campaign?

 

Mass effect

Skyrim

The Witcher

Red dead redemption

Assassin's Creed 2

it regularly goes on sale for $15 so I say it's worth it at that price especially.

First Halo Master Chief collection, and now Red Dead 2? This might be the best year for video games.

Not to mention many ps4 exclusives, even though epic store...

Bought GTA V recently for 39 BRL (about 10 USD). Very good story, easily worth buying it if you get a good price. Online is a mess, I just didn't enjoy it.

Seems a bit too expensive for me. PC launch price here was about $25 USD. But it was back when Brazil had the cheapeast PC games in the world.

buy it on sale, online is fun but can be ruined by other players and the prices on everything are set up so that you buy micro transactions (please dont)

Just wondering if I should still get GTA V in the current year. 

Definitely. I completed the single player campaign and it provides well over 100 hours alone. Especially if you get into mods down the line. GTA Online is just as fun, if not better when you earn friends. DLC's have been releasing about every season and usually help you earn money or have more fun. If you're into open world games, this game is a must own. There's also a creator for creating your own races and other games modes that basically entitles whatever your mind creates. GTA 5 is one of the best games ever created and for that reason I highly recommend it. Just make sure to look for useful guides on how to go about playing the Online mode to avoid grief and being broke/less powerful.

You'd be overpaying if you paid that price in 2019. That's the price I paid in late 2016. More than worth that price but you can easily get it for half that right now. It hit around $12.00 in January, February and March so you can expect it to do the same here in April real soon. That's when you should scoop it up. GreenManGaming or GameBillet are your best bets to find the cheapest prices on GTA 5 in April. But don't expect those two sites to provide many other great deals on other games. Sure you may find great deals but what they mostly advertise are insulting price points. Here's a perfect example to avoid...

Looks like a "SALE SALE SALE SALE" right? Wrong. When you click on it, practically ONE game is 80% off. The keywords here are UP to.

Funny, GTA 5 was $60 on GMG when I checked, and it was only 30 on steam and the rockstar warehouse.
