rand Theft Auto V was released on Sept. 17, 2013. Forty-eight hours later Josh Law, a freshman, architecture major at Ball State, beat the game. Standing in line for the midnight release, his excitement overshadowed the thought of an 8:00 a.m. class, and he played until 6:00 a.m. After classes he continued playing and the next day, Law repeated the process late into the night. Grand Theft Auto V’s release beat several Guinness World Records. It made $800 million dollars within 24 hours. It was expected to make $1 billion in the first month, but it surpassed that in the first three days making more than $3 billion. Due to the games popularity, crimes were committed in attempts to get the game for free or before other players.
