GTA Fan Vids: Awesome PS4 & Xbox One Action
Since GTAV's release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, we've seen some amazing stuff from the community taking their Freemode shenanigans and carefully calculated First Person stunts to dizzying new heights. Check out a round up of just a few awesome ones that have been catching our eye.
Los Santos By Night by The XXI
An impressive piece of work from XXI, capturing the night life of Downtown Los Santos and East Vinewood in a slick presentation that really shows off the style and vibe of the city after hours. Also check out his "Feel The Scale" series to get a time-lapse taste of just how vast the entirety of Los Santos and Blaine County really is.
A WHOLE NEW (GEN) WORLD
A Whole New (Gen) World | GTA 5 Aladdin Song by 8-BIT BASTARD
8-BIT BASTARD is at it again, with possibly their most ambitious and grandiose film parody to date. Realizing there was a whole new Los Santos out there to explore, 8-BIT broke out the
ole magic carpet Sultan and enlisted their own Aladdin and Jasmine to do their take on the classic song from Disney's Aladdin. "Unbelievable sights/Loads and loads of more music/30 people are playing online all at the same time," you'll definitely feel inspired to take a trip of your own.
We also highly recommend 8-BIT's GTAV Wildlife Documentary | Into The Deep, in which they take a much more measured approach at making what feels like a legitimate documented study of the flora and fauna of the ocean along the LS coastline. In their own words, "This GTA 5 nature documentary will demonstrate the behaviors of some of the most remarkable mammals in the oceans that surround Los Santos and Blaine County and some of the deepest mysteries will also be revealed."
GTAV Online | From PS3 to PS4 by KOKONITOS VIDS
Kokonitos, who dazzled us earlier in the year with the video she did featuring the Russian Girls Crew (G1RU), is back - strutting through the streets of Los Santos (and occasionally leaving mayhem in her wake). Fully taking advantage of the First Person feature, and a cool use of time-lapse, this impressive vid really shows off some of the natural beauty of GTAV on the new platforms, and manages to sneak in a few sly pop culture nods along the way.
GTA V (PS4) Time-Lapse - The Beautiful Game by ThirstyHyena
We've certainly seen our share of gorgeous time-lapse videos so it was really great to see ThirstyHyena not only show off impressive changes in weather and daily going-ons within the LS traffic grid, but tour famous landmarks and building interiors for the full effect.
GTA V Next Gen - Driving Time Lapse - World in Motion by SA96HD
Starting out on Vespucci Beach, SA96HD takes the high-end Pegassi Zentorno out for a leisurely daytrip through Los Santos and Blaine County, even making sure to stop at traffic lights and observing basic rules of the road. An entire day's drive wraps up in just over 5 minutes, concluding with a perfect reflective moment on the Del Perro Pier.
DAY ONE DAREDEVIL
GTA 5 PS4 - "Day One" - Freestyle Daytage (PS4 BMX/Drifting/Sanchez) by Fishy Dizzle
Fishy Dizzle has previously exhibited impressive skill and mastery when it comes to making and directing BMX Stunt videos. In this presentation, Fishy cuts his teeth on the new First Person mode - drifting around corners in the Vinewood Hills and putting a Sanchez through its paces with unflinching regard for his own safety. If you enjoyed this also check out his "Persistance" A First Person Minitage clip as well.
GTA5 Next Gen: Skydive - 1st Person Stunt Montage by ash0191
On a Los Santos skydiving excursion Back in July, ash0191 incredibly dove through the iconic sign on top of a Liquor Hole location. ash is back at it again, this time pulling off the stunt in first person - it's quite exhilarating (and white knuckling) to experience it from that point of view. Beyond that, some really cool parachuting and jet stunting can be witnessed here.
Also, while not attempting the stunt in First Person mode like ash0191 did above, past Rockstar Livestream guest Typical Gamer impressively replicated the original feat himself during a stream with HikeTheGamer.
GTA V - First Person Scorcher Tower Wallride [Slayer's Ethos Spot] by VaNilla
Think you could handle a straight drop off one of the tallest structures in Downtown Los Santos? Veteran Nomad Union stunter and video editor, VaNilla takes the plunge off the Union Depository with ease, even managing a graceful 360 tail-whip for style before sticking the final landing.
Free Fall Through Vinewood Sign - 1st Person by Richard Boylan
Here newcomer Richard Boylan threads an eye-of-the-needle pass through the "D" in the landmark Vinewood Hills sign. For something equally cool, also make sure to check out his ejection seat pass with the P-996 Lazer approaching from the opposite side.
