So everyone knows that the new gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto V released yesterday, so here are five reasons why you should buy the game instead of sitting on the fence.

With plenty to keep you entertained it's hard to pick the five best reasons but these are my personal favourite picks from the trailer.

1. Three protagonists

There's three main characters in the game that you can switch to at any time during gameplay and even get them to help you out when on missions. That has to be something, right? Unfortunately you can't go and murder each other when you're off a mission but I suppose you could swap to them and then jump in front of the highway traffic.

2. Motherfucking planes

The end of the gameplay trailer showed us that planes are back in the game for you to fly as you please. The first time that these have appeared since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as well! You'll get to soar through the sky in your jet, admiring the view below, like an eagle piloting a blimp. How wonderful! No, but seriously, hopefully they have some guns on them so we can get some awesome dog fights going in multiplayer or something.

3. Sports!

Yes that's right, you can play sports in GTA 5, hell yeah! Ranging from cycling to golf and tennis, it's all there. And if you've ever wanted to shoot your opponent in the face after loosing a match, I'm pretty sure you'd be able to do that in GTA V, all is fair in the GTA world, right?

4. Scuba Diving

For the first time in the GTA franchise, you can now go scuba diving and explore various different things, I think the trailer showed off an abandoned/sunken ship or something, not sure what it was. Either way, that looks like a cool thing to do! Especially if you can have harpoons and end up with a harpoon fight down there in GTA Online.

5. Car customization

Yay! We can customize our cars again for the first time since Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas all the way back in 2005. With over 1000 options to choose from everyone can make their own unique car which will make you stand out from the crowd, whether that is in a good way or a bad way, remains to be seen.

Those are my 5 reasons why you should buy the game but what are yours? Let us know in the comments below!
