GTA 5 is my favorite game to play. I know that this game can only be played on the PC, PS or xbox. I am sure that this game can not be played on the linux.
Well, you can prefer other platform too to play this game.

Well, thanks Steam ! They are currently in the process of eliminating the very last reason that keeps a Windows OS on my gaming computer :P

The beauty of Linux, my friend, is that you can try anything. Try to install it, try to run it, and try to document everything for other users to learn from. WINE is going to be your main tool. From there, its really just trial and error. Google can point in the right direction and I'm sure there are guides/tutorials on the matter.

Yes, but you would need a pretty powerful computer, and some knowledge of wine. To start, you’ll need a computer that is better than the minimum requirements for windows, because wine will slow the game down a bit*, so you need to make up for that. Second, you need to install wine on your computer. After that, you need to google “GTA 5 winehq” which will provide instructions for configuring a wine prefix. These instructions will allow you to overcome errors that would occur in a clean wine prefix. After configuring your wine prefix, find the installation exe, and install using wine. After that, you should be all set.

*Wine is a compatibility layer, that will be converting the games code to the necessary code for the OS on the fly, and this will cause slow down, so it’s important to be a bit above the minimum requirements to be able to counteract the slowdown as best as you can.
