By decision of the Trope Repair Shop, Magnum Opus is now In Universe Examples Only. / Take it to the sugar wiki
* MagnumOpus: Some fans and critics have proclaimed ''Grand Theft Auto V'' to be the best ''GTA'' game yet (beating even the previous favorite: ''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas'').

* SoCoolItsAwesome: The game is generally considered to be Rockstar's MagnumOpus, which alone says a lot.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: The radio stations have been criticized for having songs that aren't as great as the previous games stations in exchange for giving "a west coast feel" (with notable exceptions such as Radio Mirror Park and Non-Stop Pop FM). The next gen versions fixed all that by allowing the DJs to pick any songs they wanted to add into their stations. Many agree that the quality of the stations have gone up significantly and already great stations are now even better.

*** As of 25 February 2015, the PC version has been delayed ''three'' times, each time Rockstar claiming they need more time for optimization and polish. Many {{Steam}} preorders have been cancelled, and the PC community is rife with cynical predictions that Rockstar is delaying because they're literally incapable of properly making a PC port (an announcement on the Social Club asking for patience in dealing with PC Online "cutting its teeth" at launch did ''not'' help), and will likely delay again. People who've done the research have accused parent company [[Creator/TakeTwoInteractive Take-Two]] of [[ExecutiveMeddling ordering the delays]] in order to boost [[MoneyDearBoy their new fiscal year]] (which begins in April, the current release window). And a very VocalMinority is outright calling for the game to be pirated en masse in protest.

*** The ground team has to navigate tight corridors while the lights are. Despite being pitch black, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the enemy guards have no problems pelting you with bullets from the first moment they possibly can.]] Normally it woulden't be so bad execpt the game pressures you to hurry in order to avoid the air team having to put up with too much resistance. The game also [[ArtificialDifficulty reduces the ammo count on the assault riffles and pistols to 120 for the duration of the heist]], two weapons that would be much more useful in the hallways they keep throwing you into than SMGs and shotguns, weapons you will most likely resort to due to bringing in your own ammo.

* MisaimedFandom: Trevor Philips. He's the most popular of the three protagonists but he's also the most morally depraved character and was made to intentionally be a {{deconstruction}} of your standard ''GTA'' protagonist.

* MisaimedFandom: Trevor Philips. He's the most extremely popular of the three protagonists but he's also the most morally depraved character and was made to intentionally be a {{deconstruction}} of your standard ''GTA'' protagonist.protagonist. * {{Misblamed}}: The soundtrack was a common criticism of the game, saying it was too repetitive and that Rockstar made bad choices with each station. However, each station was ''actually'' curated by their respective DJ, not Rockstar. Which means if you don't like a song in the game, your blame goes to the DJ of station, not them. It was lightened up with the next-gen version, due to there being much more songs in the game.

** Steve Haines and Devin Weston. Depending on how you ask, they're either interesting, entertaining antagonists who tie in nicely with the game's themes, or the weakest and least threatening ''GTA'' antagonists yet.

Others point out that Rockstar has an outlined detailing various routers that the game has issues with, and that they include fixes for various connectivity issues, and insult the ones saying that Rockstar is lazy.
