Friday App Sales: Grand Theft Auto Series, World of Goo, Hitman GO, and More

A ton of great games are available through Google Play for a discounted price this week, such as true classics like GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. If you think you might have a few hours to kill over the weekend, there are no better time wasters than that.
