There was a time when we firmly believed we had seen and done some of the most incredible things that Grand Theft Auto 5 had to offer… then we went to YouTube. It’s quite humbling really, to see that what you thought was out of this world doesn’t even scratch the surface of what others have done. If you want to have some of your best moments in GTA 5 put to shame, check out what these gamers pulled off.
Mount Chiliad Police Chase – Rechyyy
This one is straight up driving, but it has some of the most incredible stunts and near misses that we’ve ever seen in the game. Either this person is that good, or they are the luckiest car thief walking the streets of Los Santos. If we had to guess, we’d say it’s a little bit from column A and a little bit from column B, with some fancy video editing in column C. You be the judge.
Great Knockouts – Barnicals MLG
This one is near and dear to our hearts because it’s a montage of our favorite GTA 5 past time, knocking people silly. There’s nothing fancy here, just some solid punches to the faces and people falling over like a tank shot them. If you like the video above, be sure to check out Barnical MLG’s second edition. Punching people in the face never gets boring.
Five Star Police Chase – Rechyyy
We wanted to choose someone else, we really did, but Rechyyy comes through for a second time with a video that isn’t just amazing, but also has a bit of style with its music and video editing. Although he takes the chase away from Mount Chiliad, it’s just as incredible. Furthermore, the more time we spent scouring the Internet for amazing GTA 5 videos, the more we realized the term is grossly over-used. Rechyyy, on the other hand, seems to have the winning formula.
Trevor Kills Michael… Finally – Omgurheadsgone
First of all, that’s the strangest YouTube name we’ve seen in awhile. Second, this video is more amazing in concept than practice. We knew you could make characters bump into each other, but this escalates things to a whole new level. You have to hand it to him though, even if his aim is bad, his persistence is top notch.
BMX Stunt Montage – ErasableNinja
We’re probably just suckers for good choices in music and smooth editing, but you also can’t deny the skill that went into each of the BMX stunts this montage features. It’s fitting that our final video take a break from the death and destruction of the first four and shows the true potential of a game like Grand Theft Auto 5.
Have we missed a video that you’ve seen and think should have made this list? Don’t be shy, let us know in the comments if your favorite made our list, or if it’s still out there waiting to be discovered.
