One of the things gamers have nearly come to master in the 2008 outing is the ability to completely transform Grand Theft Auto into entirely new beasts, including outputting amazing trailer remakes from other games, music videos or even movies. Just like the ones in this list
Whenever someone says that they have new footage of a game for a certain system and it's exclusive and shady and all that jazz, we usually all roll our eyes and look the other way.

While the October and November PlayStation sales charts offered a few surprises here and there, the majority of top-performing games for the last month of 2013 is pretty much what you would have expected, including the likes of Call of Duty, Battlefield, Assassins Creed and Grand Theft Auto.
All good things eventually come to an end... or in the case of scammers: once caught it's twice as hard to stay gone.

We were almost completely and entirely duped, folks. The whole GTA 5 or GTA 6 City of Paradise news is fake. Faker than Pamela Anderson's boobs, faker than CoCo's butt and faker than that compliment you received from that one night stand who said you were the “best they ever had”. In other words, GTA: City of Paradise is fake, fake, fake.
For the most part, everyone has long forgotten about Grand Theft Auto 5; the game was washed from our memories quicker than the latest Jude Law film, and Rockstar's foray into MMO territory – GTA Online – only helped us further put GTA 5 on the backburner.

While Rockstar fixes all the woes of the GTA Online component of GTA V, a lot of other gamers who have decided to save their money and wait for Rockstar to announce the definitive version of the game. The real question however, is will you buy GTA V for PC or will you get it for the next-gen consoles?
Late to the party but never without the sort of stuff that makes it interesting, we've sort of come full circle on the GTA stuff where enough gamers have had time to play the game for themselves and see if it lives up to all the hype, the candor and the violence one would expect from a franchise known for pushing the limit. However, has the limit been pushed too far?
The end of the month is just a few days away, meaning it’s officially time to take a peek at the September offerings for PlayStation Plus.

Leading up to the September release of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V, modders have gone all out and then some with GTA IV. The community has come up with some of the wackiest, coolest, craziest stuff around, including a new modded weapon that comes straight out of Saints Row IV... the one and only Dubstep Gun.
