10 Crazy, Awesome Things I Saw and Did in Grand Theft Auto Online
Certainly one of the most anticipated games of 2013 is the newest installment of the Grand Theft Auto series. GTA V will release in September, and is set to remind gamers of why GTA is one of the most popular game series of all times. However, this version has something that players have never seen before, online play. And with the addition of online play, there are even more options to cause destruction and rage war on your opponents. Here are 10 crazy, yet awesome, things that you can do in Grand Theft Auto Online.
Steal A Plane
Whether you do it legitimately or put in a code to access it, flying a plane has always been one of the more entertaining parts of GTA. Luckily, Rockstar will be bringing this part of the game back, but with more detail added to the reqirements. Part of the online game play will include the opportunity to steal a plane and then fly it in a fleet with the rest of your friends. You’ll then be required to land the plane, and you’ll get rewards depending on how well you fly control the plane from take of to touch down.
Visit A Strip Club
GTA has always been known for its sexuality, and that’s one of the main draws for the game. Well luckily with this release of GTA, you can visit a strip club with your friends to, well, see entertainment. How you act while in the strip club will determine how long you are allowed to stay so make sure you are on your best behavior (at least when security is watching).
Multiplayer Sporting Events
The Grand Theft Auto series has implemented small sporting mini-games into previous versions, like darts with a date or basketball with a friend. But this version is now introducing golf and tennis, both of which you can battle your friends with online. Even though these are intended to be mini-games, if you decide to tee off, you can legitimately play an entire 18-hole course that takes a while to play. The ability to play a sophisticated game of golf after robbing stores and trafficking drugs is a quite enjoyable experience for GTA V.
Go To The Movies
After you hit the strip club with your online friends, you can also head over and catch a flick at the movie theater. The type of movies you can watch vary, and it’s not something you may want to sit through during the entire time. But just the addition of this option is an added feature that shows the depth and thought that went into the online element of GTA.
High Speed Races
Races have been a part of GTA games in the past, so its only right that they are back in the multiplayer online mode in GTA V. This version allows you to start and finish a race anywhere on the map, making the terrain and obstacles limitless. But its not just other cars and billboards that will get in your way, considering that police and enemies will be chasing you as well.
Rob A Liquor Store
If you get bored, or if you simply want to cause some trouble with your friends, you can go pick them up in your car and head over to the liquor store to rob the joint. How much money and liquor you walk away is up to you, but be careful of your ‘friend’ after the robbery. GTA V online has made it an option where these cohorts can turn their back on you and take everything you just stole for their own.
Light Up With Friends
With the legalization of marijuana becoming an issue all across America, its only right that this element was thrown into GTA V. In this version of the game, you can now own medicinal marijuana clinics and even smoke your own stash. When you want, you can get online and call your buddies up for a smoke sesh that everyone will enjoy. The cool part of the game is that the screen will become a bit disoriented and really give you an effect of being high. At least, for a video game.
Visit The ATM
In previous versions of Grand Theft Auto, you would be able to walk around forever with your money just growing exponentially without repercussions. If you died or went to jail, you’d sitl have your money with you, minus a few bucks for doctors fees (there’s no insurance in GTA, after all). But this version will require you to actually stop by ATMs and deposit your finances into a bank. If you don’t, and you die, than your money will just be lying around and waiting for someone to come and steal your wallet.
Missions Change With Popularity
One of the best part about GTA V online is that the missions are continually changing. Rockstar has made it to where they can implement new missions throughout, and as they become more popular with social gaming, then you can add it to your list of missions to complete.
Create Own Missions
If games growing with popularity wasn’t enough, than you’ll be stoked to know that you can also add your own missions as well. This goes the same for everyone else across the world playing GTA V too, so you can imagine how quickly the opportunity to play new missions can grow and become more entertaining. With the option to create new missions, the options in GTA V are limitless and add a whole new depth of possibilities to online play.
Grand Theft Auto has always been a fun game to play. But with the addition of online mode, it brings a whole new element to the game. You will see, do and play new things that you always wished for, but wasn’t possible until GTA V.
