What better time to stop and pose for a selfie than after a brutal domestic assault? Or following a fighter-jet explosion onto a beach? 

The selfie has become a staple of Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) culture—a reflection of the game's outrageous, outlandish, over-the-top-hilarious aesthetic. It’s also a reflection of society’s sick obsession with itself, as we saw firsthand as a couple of tourists snapped a photo of themselves smiling last week. The photo was taken in front of a crowd that gathered after the Capitola woman rammed her car into a barricade. 

Here are 12 of the best GTA V selfies from Reddit’s r/gaming community. Sometimes games and reality are just too similar.
