Is GTA+ worth buying?

2020 was the year of consoles as Sony introduced the Playstation 5 and Microsoft released its Xbox series X/S. But here’s the catch. Players were not able to play GTA 5 on them as there wasn’t a compatible version for these consoles. It led to fans having second thoughts about shifting to a newer version. Hence, Rockstar Games decided to release an exclusive just for them. It became available worldwide on April 15th, 2022, with GTA online becoming the only standalone game.
