11 Things You'll Only Understand If You've Played GTA 5

GTA is the king of the sandbox

From Invincible Trees to Shopping Sprees on the Beach, These Are Things Every GTA Player Will Get

The GTA series has come a long way since it began. The city of Los Santos from GTA 5 feels like a living, breathing place with its own personality and culture.  With so much detail in the city, here’s our list of 11 things you’ll only understand if you’ve played GTA 5. 


1) Always Run from the Police

The law works a little different in Los Santos. These maniacs with a badge are judge, jury, and executioner rolled into one. They don’t care if you blew up a jumbo jet or just bumped into their squad car, these guys play for keeps.


2) I Suddenly Love Shopping for Clothes

Put us in an Old Navy and we’re bored out of our minds. But we can’t wait for the next time we get to shop for virtual clothes that have no real life value. I can’t explain how this works, it just does.


3) You Don’t Mess with the Air Force Base

I’ll never forget the first time I thought it’d be fun to fly over the Air Force base with my dinky little stunt plane. These are the kinds of lessons we only have to learn once.


4) Run from the Red Dots on the Minimap

White circles on the map represent other players, but those circles grow a darker shade of red every time that user kills another player. When we see that dark red dot creeping towards us, we know it’s about to go down.


5) GTA Trees and Wolverine’s Claws Are Made from the Same Material

Want to smash a golf cart through a light pole? No problem. Want to run through a tree with a dump truck? Dream on.

6) Civilians Were Put Into This World for Your Amusement

We can’t stop punching civilians. We don’t hate them, we just love their hilarious reactions. A bonus is that this usually starts a comical series of events that end with us being hunted down by a flock of police helicopters.
