Grand Theft Auto 5: more than just a game.

I'm sure most of you have heard of the game series "Grand Theft Auto". Be it from news stories slating the series as the most violent and harmful series of video games ever, or from YouTube videos or even from personal experience. GTA has long been my favorite series of games. More so than Gran Turismo, Need for Speed or even Forza. Especially GTA5, the most current release. More specifically, though, GTA:Online.

I don't play GTA for the Player vs. player stuff, the shooting, the guns or even the act for which the game is named. I play for the cars. As you play, you earn money. With this money, you can buy garages where you store cars. I LOVE the build process. This started out as a Bravado Banshee, the in-game equivalent of the Dodge Viper. Here, after Bennys Customs goes through it (after countless thousands of dollars), I got this: A Wide-body Time-attack monster.

This Karin Futo, the in-game equivalent to the Toyota Corolla AE86 Coupe, is  quite customizable as well. This car also makes for a nice drift car.

This car, the Benefactor Sterling GT, the in-game variant of the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, is an amazingly quick classic sports car with an even nicer exhaust note.

This car, the Phister Comet Classic custom, is based off of the RWB 993.

Clearly, there are similarities to the 993 Porsche 911

The main differences being in the rear. The Tail-lamps sort of resemble those on a 928

Overall, though, the Comet Classic custom pretty much nails the RWB look.

As part of the recent Import/Export update, new vehicles got unlocked. Including this Wastelander, based off of the similar vehicle from Fast Five, used in the train heist scenes.

Another favorite is this, the Annis Elegy Classic Cusom, based on the Nissan Skyline R32 GTR.

It certainly has some familiar lines, doesn't it?

It is LHD, while the skyline only ever came RHD, but other than that, the car is fairly similar to the R32

Anyway, if anyone wants to play GTAV with me, or my friends, hit me up on Steam or social Club. Username is ForesterSG6.
