GTA V wait delivers community innovation

While some gamers are checking for Grand Theft Auto 5 news everyday, others are getting creative during the long wait for something more from Rockstar. Considering we have only seen an official trailer and a few screenshots it’s enough to drive you crazy, but a couple of community members decided to do something constructive with their time while waiting for GTA V to receive a release date, which included creating a 3D version (thinking GTA IV) of the first Grand Theft Auto game.

The GTA IV fan created mod combines both GTA IV and the 2D map from the first ever Grand Theft Auto game, and this innovation is thanks to two community members, known as Flitskikker and Blaster_nl, which shows how some gamers spend their time while waiting for GTA V. We say “gamers” because this creation had been uploaded to YouTube by “taltigolt“, and when someone told this user “Rockstar Games will only take developers with a certain accreditation“, he replied “I am NOT a developer I am just a 19 year old kid posting videos I don’t expect to get hired at a game company for it“.

It is worth pointing out that Rockstar made this video a favorite, and also featured it in their news wire, which helped the video reach more than 70,000 people so far. We wouldn’t expect Rockstar to hire people that create mods like this, but it does show they recognize creative talent.

We understand the frustration of waiting for GTA 5, especially considering we really want to get hands-on as well, but the moaning gamers are more annoying than the lack of news from Rockstar, although it’s good that most people are positive towards the next GTA game and understand that it will be well worth the wait. This stance by most gamers comes from the knowledge that Rockstar has a good reason for being silent.

If you are planning on buying GTA 5, have you been involved in any constructive projects related to Grand Theft Auto? Are you happy with Rockstar and the way they’re handling GTA 5 so far? We have also seen some fans setting up crews in preperation for the next GTA game, and if you have done this feel free to share your crew name. We have also included a second video of GTA London, which is sure to bring back memories for some gamers.
