Play as a chimpanzee in Grand Theft Auto V

GTA5Videos highlights the best mods around for Grand Theft Auto V, and the latest episode shows off playable animals. I want to be the chimp.

Rockstar will add heists to GTA Online this spring photo
Rockstar will add heists to GTA Online this spring
by Jordan Devore

Rockstar has detailed what it has in store for GTA Online and while there's quite a lot of content planned, my eyes went straight for the line about the long-awaited Heist Missions. They're coming at some point this spring -- that's all the company was willing to say. Drat!

Next week, players will be able to create their own Capture Jobs if they're tired of making and playing Deathmatches and Races. There's also the High Life Update in the works -- it will allow players to own a second property with another garage, introduce the Mental State player statistic so we know how crazy our peers are, and add stuff like the Ballpup Rifle, the Dinka Thrust motorcycle, more cars, and additional high-end apartments.

Beyond this, Rockstar says holiday-themed content is scheduled for GTA Online as well and it'll be rolling out Story Mode DLC eventually. There's also a preview of upcoming changes to the game that will be delivered by way of title updates and dynamic tuning, viewable below.

The man behind Lamar from GTA V to become Black Jesus

This animation captures GTA Online perfectly

You don't need to have played GTA Online to enjoy this animation by Jameserton, but it'll hit much closer to home if you have done so. It's funny, and I say that as someone who goes into these game parodies with a sometimes unreasonable amount of skepticism. That dramatic music during the bomb sequence? The best.

This group recreated the Skyfall intro in GTA V

In the movie Skyfall, James Bond has a rather intense encounter on the top of a train in one of the very first scenes. It's a memorable moment in the film, and some people sought to re-create it in Grand Theft Auto V. Pretty...

GTA V players snatched a car in midair with an airplane

Make your own fun. It's a lesson that we sometimes forget in the glut of linear, Hollywood-style "cinematic" games. I once spent an afternoon among friends in Ultimate Spiderman seeking out the highest building in the game, ...
