Sometimes, GTAV Just Wants to Play You

Illustration for article titled Sometimes, GTAV Just Wants to Play You

Hello, everyone. Long time user of Kotaku here. Call me LordDisco, because I’m the lord of a long-forgotten and brilliant form of dance music. I play a lot of games. Always have. I was born the year Mario Bros graced arcades, so I view that as a destined path to place video games at the forefront of my life. Simply put: I LOVE VIDEO GAMES.


With that introduction out of the way, let’s dive right into my thinking here.

Grand Theft Auto V is a pretty awesome game. I don’t think there are a whole lot of arguments there. Sure, it has its problems, but overall, it’s a phenomenal experience that RockStar continues to make better and better.


One thing I have noticed, though, is that GTA Online is one of the funniest places to find the most insane glitches in today’s gaming world. Chris Person’s “Highlight Reel” here on Kotaku has GTA Online videos in it literally every post, and just about every time, they are unreal, over-the-top, or just plain funny. It’s in this that GTA Online provides an experience that adds to its already stellar amount of content; unpredictability at its finest.

I have personally ran into my own glitches here and there while playing, the occasional rubberbanding, people appearing out of nowhere, wrecking into nothing, etc. A game this massive has its problems due to to obvious complexity in coding and programming, but I have to be honest, I have longed to experience my own glitch that cracked me up to tears.


Today was the day. I have experienced my ultimate GTA Online glitch!

To this moment, I’m still trying to figure out what exactly went wrong. Amusingly, my teammates couldn’t see the gang member glitching out and throwing my car, but they kept asking me why my car was shaking like a vibrator. I just kept saying, “There’s a dude stuck to the tire and he’s going crazy!”


It’s moments like this and when I watch “Highlight Reel” that keep me wanting to play GTA Online. It’s a grand world with tons to do, and every so often, we get to experience something that actually ends up playing us. And you know what? I want more of that.
