Call me crazy but I love midnight launches. I've been to a bunch of them. It's not even about the game for me — I don't think I've ever come home from a midnight launch and played the game I've just bought. I usually just go to bed. I just like getting the game! I like the excitement. If you're keen to go to a midnight launch for Grand Theft Auto V, here is a list of (almost) all of the stores running midnight launches for the game.
I don't think I've ever seen such a ponderous list. I've never seen such a massive amount of support for a new game coming out. It's insane.
Also: if you run an independent store and want to be added to this list, feel free to email me here.
