Although opinions are subjective, Grand Theft Auto V is a multi-year labor of extreme work and possibly even love, whereas the new Call of Duty game is part of a seemingly identical annual franchise that exists solely to milk money out of consumers without significantly advancing the gameplay at all.
Grand Theft Auto V is way better than Call of Duty: Ghosts. There is nothing that Call of Duty: Ghosts beats Grand Theft Auto V in except the graphics, If you want the proof, just take a look at the sales of both game and you will see how much better GTA V is.
Although the games can't really be compared, I feel that Grand Theft Auto V is far more superior of a game than Call of Duty: Ghosts. Firstly, we must define both games for this comparison: GTA V is a sandbox-style game with a large map that provides endless amounts of hours of gameplay; COD: Ghosts is a FPS shooter with a campaign for single player and co-op play and a large online multiplayer mode. GTA V is better simply because there's more hours of gameply and customizability than COD: Ghosts. Also, COD: Ghosts is not close to par with its previous franchises yet GTA V seems to be increasingly better than the last games of its franchise.
Call of Duty: Ghost is the same as every other call of duty. Its the same old thing game after game. Run around and kill things. However, Grand theft auto has a great story line on top of a great online feature. Call of Duty requires no skill. All you do is the same thing.
Even though I am yet to play Grand Theft Auto V, but have played COD: Ghosts, whether or not one of the game is better then the other really depends on the person and what game they prefer. These are both different kinds of games, which different gameplays, and stories.
Both GTA V and Call of Duty Ghosts are great games. If you have to compare them though GTA V will lose every time to Call of Duty. GTA V has some very fun elements you can't find anywhere else but the quality of game play does not compare to that of Call of Duty Ghosts.
No, Grand Theft Auto V is not better than Call of Duty: Ghosts, because Grand Theft Auto hasn't been good in a while. The sequel is never as good as the original. But Call of Duty: Ghosts is better than Grand Theft Auto V, because the ghost theme is better. Grand Theft Auto V is just a retread of prior Grand Theft Auto.
