5 Things I Have Learned From Playing GTA V

One of the things that I enjoy doing whenever I'm out of the office is to spend countless of hours playing video games. The Grand Theft Auto franchise has always fascinated me. Protagonists are sociopaths with hearts of gold. Mod cars, weird dialogues, guns, money, and various activities fill your playing time.

When you play video games, you take everything with a grain of salt. You can't believe everything that you see or hear and that's the beauty of video games. Fantasy and reality are fused together. But it doesn't mean you can't learn anything from the time you spent playing them. 

There are missions and tasks that you need to complete. Each task has its own goal and challenges. You strategize, plan and organize what moves you need to do in order to accomplish these projects.

You learn a lot of things from playing GTA V but I just listed 5 for now.

There are 3 main characters in the GTA V narrative. You have Michael DeSanta also known as Michael Townley, a successful heist man who has been presumed dead for the past 9 years but is actually alive and hiding in Los Santos. Franklin Clinton is his protege who wants to move up in the world. And finally, we have Trevor Philips, a sociopath/psychopath who provides the laughs and craziness in the game.

I created a short video that shows my realization from numerous tries of GTA V

Watch the video and find out the 5 life lessons I have learned from playing Grand Theft Auto 5.
