This week’s round-up of recommended viewing from the wide world of GTA video creators on YouTube showcases avid videographers using Los Santos as their creative backdrop. From action movies, to intricate stunts, to artful real-life versus game-world comparisons, check out the fantastic array of new fan creations below.
GTA 5 - Best of 2014 BMX Stunt Montage by ErasableNinja
Erasable's latest montage showcases some of his finest work to date. As well as insane chained grind combos and wall rides on just about every surface available, ridiculous power slides through impossibly tiny gaps will really have your eyes popping. The epic over-the-bridge backflip onto a moving truck bed at the 56 second mark is a stunt for the ages.
GTAV Car Meet and Drift / PS4 by 88:88 Productions
GTA Online car meets are a hugely popular free mode activity for casual vehicle enthusiasts and dedicated car clubs alike. This super stylish video of one such rendezvous hosted by a Representative of the PS4 Car Meets Crew is capped off by a spirited spin-cycle drifting session at an empty basketball court in which the front-wheel-drive Blista Compact makes a notable cameo appearance.
Trigger List - GTA 5 Online Machinima Short Film by Angros Creations
Angel Rosario's action-packed short film depicts "a professional hit man named Marcus Novak taking on the task of eliminating a narcotics dealer and smuggler named Roy Parker, who betrayed him a few years ago during a contract killing." With a slick cinematic presentation, we're hoping to see more episodes from Marcus Novak's "Trigger List" in the near future.
Like A Flying Boss (Skydiving GTA 5 Stunt Montage) by RedKeyMon
Back at it from the stunting scene, renowned fan favorite and Nomad Union alumni, RKM returns with a serious skydiving montage. Going above and beyond the typical dives, RKM flat-out raises the bar here. We won't give anything away but if the jaw-dropping passthrough in the grand finale dive doesn't make you a believer, nothing will.
GTA 5 Santa Monica VS Real Life POV by Brett Rosenberg
In a poetic and serene presentation, bicyclist and actor Brett Rosenberg uses a GoPro and a game controller to intercut a leisurely ride along the Del Perro Pier boardwalk with its IRL counterpart in Santa Monica, CA. With cleverly, almost surreally edited pedestrian dialogue audio, enjoy the vistas, scenery and the daily comings and goings of the denizens of these dual beachfront worlds.
