We think it’s fair to say that GTA Online is a time-consuming game and that’s not a bad thing, as the title gives you plenty of activities to sink your teeth into, like running an Arcade business and committing felonies.

The game really does a great job at making you feel like a criminal genius, albeit one with a hectic schedule that does whatever they want, to the point that you’re also just running businesses so you can make money for your crimes.

Is GTA Online Arcade Worth It?

Still, we’re not going to act like every activity in GTA Online is worth the time and effort, as some of them can be fun but just aren’t rewarding in the end.

Unfortunately, investing in GTA Online’s Arcade business is one of those time-consuming activities that just isn’t worth it in the end, especially when compared to the other money-making schemes available in the game.

That being said, there is one thing that makes owning an Arcade worthwhile but we’ll get there in a bit.

For one thing, each GTA Online Arcade costs about $1 million or more, so just getting one will take up a lot of your money.

Now, when you do have an Arcade, you’ll have to invest in other big game machines to fill it out, which will also cost you millions, no exaggeration.

Even when you fill it up with all the game machines, at the end of the day, you will only make roughly $5000 an in-game day.

Admittedly, owning a GTA Online Arcade does have one big advantage; getting access to The Master Control Terminal, which lets you manage other businesses from the comfort of the Arcade.


Honestly, if you’re going to own an Arcade for any other reason, it should be for this.

GTA Online, which comes with GTA 5, is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
