Grand Theft Auto V - The Best Game of this Generation and We Can't Play It Out In The Open

GTA V. I don't think I need to add more superlatives to how awesome this game is. This game takes open-world action to the next level, as well as characterization and storytelling. It's the best game of this gen, right up there with the mighty Skyrim in terms of scale, gameplay quality and innovation. GTAV probably nudges Skyrim a bit because it does characters better, with a lot of dialogue and cutscenes which really flesh out everyone in the cast. 

So yeah, this is the best game ever. Why the hell can't we play it in front of everyone and tell them how awesome it is?

While it is a true technical marvel, an achievement for this game generation, the sad truth is, it's just too obscene and explicit at times to be a good centerpiece of gaming for all audiences. There is just way too much swearing and obscenity in the dialogue that it does get uncomfortable to play. Not because I'm a prudish guy, mind you.....just try to play this with a straight face if you're a family man and you've got your kid just watching on the side. It's tough. 

Why is it that a game this magnificent just have to be so crass? 

So yeah, this is a 10/10. Just don't play it when your kids are around; otherwise they might think it's normal to just throw out F-bombs in every casual conversation.
