Creating a fictional state, along with fictional characters and gameplay, is a mammoth task. The developers, Rockstar North, incorporated creativity, dedication, and high-end technology to curate one of the best graphics design in the game. As it an open-ended game, it demanded extraneous hard work and emphasis. Whether you are roaming the streets or robbing a bank or driving a car, everything seems to be on track.

GTA V can be played from either a first-person perspective or a third-person perspective. In both the cases, you will be able to control a single character in the game.

The open-ended gameplay takes place in a fictional state of San Andreas and a fictional city Los Santos.
There are three protagonists – Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, and Franklin Clinton. But as it is a single player game, you can maneuver activities of a particular character at a particular moment. However, you can switch between characters during the game, whether the character is on a mission or not. You can use weapons, perform actions such as run and swim, and drive vehicles in order to complete the mission. If you are listed in the wanted category, the police forces will chase you.
As the game is an open-ended one, you have infinite options for managing the game. While on a mission, you can perform tasks to accomplish your mission successfully. Otherwise, you are free to roam the game map and do whatever you wish to do.
A single player mode allows you to control a single character at a certain time. However, you can change the characters and perform the tasks at your will.
