Number Fifteen: Someone Beat Vice City in Less Than an Hour
It might sound impossible, but it’s been done. A user named “Fil_maj_rasz” beat GTA’s Vice City in 57 minutes and 29 seconds.
Number Fourteen: The ‘F’ and ‘C’ Words Are Used More Than 1,000 Times in GTA V
It’s no secret that GTA isn’t for young kids or the faint of heart, but in GTA V, there are more than 1,000 different uses of the “f” and “c” words. That’s some kind of impressive.
Number Thirteen: Only Two Children Can Be Found Throughout the Series
It’s true! The game isn’t made for children, and the game’s characters certainly reflect that. There are only two child-aged characters in the entire series. One is a baby named Mary-Beth Williams who is featured in Vice City, and another is a 13-year-old girl named Jill Von Crastenburg.
Number Twelve: Lamar Was Supposed to Replace Franklin
In Grand Theft Auto V, it was discovered that if a player chose the canon ending C in the final mission, Franklin was supposed to die. This would result in him being replaced by Lamar for the rest of the gameplay. However, this didn’t end up happening in the version that was released.
Number Eleven: Niko Bellic Isn’t an Original Character
In fact, he’s based on the character of the henchman Sasha from Behind Enemy Lines. The video game series is known for incorporating pop culture into its gameplay.
Number Ten: Since GTA III, Every Core Game Has Been Delayed
The company tends to announce the release of new games far before the game is actually released. Since Grand Theft Auto III, every initial release date of the core games has been pushed back.
Number Nine: Each GTA V Character Represents a Type of Person Who Plays the Game
Every single character in Grand Theft Auto V is designed to represent the people playing it. For example, Franklin is an ambitious person who wants to get rich, similar to players who seek as many missions to make as much money as possible. Trevor, on the other hand, is an insane and incredibly destructive person, similar to players who play just so they can needlessly destroy the environment.
