GTA V has been a long-hyped game, and I'm actually a little surprised at just how high the general ratings for this game have been. I'm disappointed that PC isn't getting a release date closer to the consoles but the fact that this game seems to be so good really makes the anticipation greater.
What do you guys think?

Pretty much what I was going to say. Professional reviews say its good? Shockers. Who cares? That has nothing to do whatsoever about it living to the hype or not. Player reviews will say that.
Professionals are just players who are better at writing.
They also get paid to do it, and need to keep developers and publishers happy so that they can get review copies of games in time to have the review ready for when the embargo is lifted in order to compete with other sources. Normal players and Youtubers can pretty much say whatever they want without consequence, which is why a lot of people find them to be more trustworthy than someone writing for IGN, for example.
