    R* launcher only supports 1 'connection' per game i think. You might need to install the EGS version with a different Windows userid iirc.

    I would if they had more games I play, really to me they're just apps to download the game. Really don't open the launchers unless it's to download a new game. I suspect most people do the same considering the adoption rate of this launcher.

    I actually did not have this game on PC. I bought it for PS3 when I was out of work and PC was not in a shape to run this one. Might try it on PC some day.

    Well, it is a good single player game, and the online variant is horrible...like WoW with its conveyor-belt missions, and (this was the big thing) no way at all of getting a crew together to literally control a city in a server-shard.

    You can't own the streets, the streets own you.
    You can't buy the police, the police arrest you no matter how much $ you got, or weapons, or tanks, or VTOL aircraft with missiles, or rocket launchers.
    You cannot (therefore) truly feel as it you have any impact on/in a city, which makes the experience hollow and simply boring.

    I also owned it from launch anyway with a physical copy (BIG box) and 7 discs...I'm kinda done with GTA for a while...got plenty of games on my PS4Pr0 too, like GoW (not liking, but have been ploughing through slowly), The Last Guardian (still not played fully, yet have had it for 8 months) and more.

    I'm also kinda busy trying to keep my business together and probably don't need another distraction right now :(

    Good game (solo) easily avoidable (online)

    Best thing about this deal is that you get a £10 off coupon to use on your next purchase if you claim GTA V. And conveniently, they have a sale on a few games that might be worth it. Control for £13.99 or Borderlands 3 for £14.99 after coupon.

    Epic are doing it right.

    Haha, as someone who has played religiously online for the last 6-7 months my advice is, don't do it. Unless you wanna get sucked into a virtual world that will take over your real life then stay away! However, this virtual world of drug dealing, criminal activity, social interaction in a realistic, albeit comedy version of California is one of the most amazing games I have ever experienced.

    People are poor. I feel bad how many hundreds of gamers are begging Nvidia to include the free gtaV from epic store in geforce now program to play and enjoy this. Times are sad and harsh. :(

    As I said, despite being free, they have not the power to run it "smoothly". It is so despicable.

    Do elaborate? Are you saying that you can't play GTA V smoothly on Nvidia graphics cards?

    I enjoyed the heists online with 3 other guys. The SP is awesome, must've played it through it like 5 times by now.
    I will step into LosSantos in VR this weekend and that will prob be the end of my GTA V journey. Bought it on my 360 in 2013, then the PS4 bundle (BIG BOX!) and finally the PC version.

    Love it but there are other games soonish i need to attend to. Cyberpunk where art thou!

    No no. Users with free gtaV begging for cloud gaming from Nvidia. They should have rigs for a so old game on their own.

    For example as I am an amd user, I enjoy my rtx library from geforce now service. It is logical to play all rtx games there for ray tracing. But older games like this? I wonder.
