Microblogging fun to make you smile at work

That sense of wild abandon and playfulness is evident elsewhere too, with GTA V featuring a frankly staggering array of optional pursuits. You can simply chill out in front of the TV, surf the internet, shop, play tennis or golf, scuba dive, street race, play the stock market, become a property magnate, compete in a triathlon, even practise your yoga - and that’s just for starters. These aren’t throwaway mini-games either - each offers a surprising amount of depth and careful integration with the game’s extensive, bravado-baiting online leader boards.
Even better, each extra-curricular activity brings tangible rewards too, markedly improving various character stats - from stamina to driving acumen - and, ultimately, your performance in missions. It’s an elegant, far more successful take on GTA: San Andreas’ ambitious but flawed character levelling system, folding those optional pursuits back into the game’s core.
