Wikipedia is not a strategy guide or instruction manual. Wikipedia articles should focus on the games themselves, not on how to play them; they should not contain tips, tricks, or cheat codes. That information is available elsewhere, in printed guides and online, and does not belong in an encyclopedia entry. Please do not add your own hints or opinions of the game.Verifiable content about the history, design, and overall description of the game is welcome. If you have questions about whether specific information should be added, ask here first.
This article is written in British English, which has its own spelling conventions (colour, travelled, centre, realise, defence), and some terms used in it are different or absent from other varieties of English. According to the relevant style guide, this should not be changed without broad consensus.
The game's music should be better represented in this article. I recommend having a bit more in the Development section (as a summary from the Development article) and having a bit more on the soundtrack's independent reviews in the Reception. I'm also proposing that The Music of Grand Theft Auto V and Welcome to Los Santos be merged into the Development article or something like Music of Grand Theft Auto V (similar in form to Music of the Mother series). The albums/radio stations have received some commentary on their own, but not to warrant several separate articles. I think they can be sufficiently covered in the Development article alone and then summarized in the main game article, but I also see enough sources to warrant an article on the game's music (the official soundtrack, secondary source coverage on the radio stations, the Alchemist/Oh No album) as a single entity. – czar 18:39, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
czar, I've just written a draft of the article here. It still needs some critical reception on Welcome to Los Santos, and the lead can probably be reworked, but is that basically what you were referring to? I also wanted to point out that Tangerine Dream released an album called The Cinematographic Score - GTA 5; it wasn't ever mentioned by Rockstar, so should this be added to the article too, or should we omit it? – Rhain1999(talk to me) 01:25, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
I think that's definitely the right direction. Tangerine Dream's album should fit in there too—it's a better catch-all for the semi-but-not-independently notable music and soundtrack stuff czar 02:59, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Sounds good! I'll do some more work on it later. – Rhain1999(talk to me) 03:03, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Semi-protected edit request on 21 February 2016
Hello, the article says GTA V is "considered one of seventh generation console gaming's most significant titles". But the game was launched in 2013, or seven years after the consoles were launched. Shouldn't it be the eighth generation, which began in 2013? --126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:58, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Technically, it can be played on both seventh and eight generation consoles; so, I guess it belongs to both. Nonetheless, the cited source claims it is one of the best games of last generation, at the same time mentioning that it has the potential to be one of the best of the current as well. I think the former is mentioned in the article as it is explicit whereas the latter is implicit. -- ChamithN(talk) 03:55, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Also, generations overlap. We technically still are in both 7th and 8th generation systems. --MASEM (t) 03:57, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
