The new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V looks great, but how will I find the time to play it?

The new Rockstar game comes out in the second quarter of next year.

The latest Grand Theft Auto trailer came out today, and it makes the game look a) even more attractive than the New York of GTAIV; b) just as violent and full of angry women telling you not to do things you want to do.

Anyway, enjoy: I'm hoping that by the time the game is released next year, I've cleared the enormous backlog of games I've half-played, want to replay, or want to play co-op or using online multiplayer. I'm currently juggling Dishonored, Halo 4, Borderlands 2 and XCOM, and I can see Assassins Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 shimmering on the horizon. (No Black Ops II, mind, because the first one was insultingly short.)
