Don’t watch these crazy Grand Theft Auto skydives if you’re afraid of heights
Insane jumps through the eyes of the jumper.
Imagine jumping out of a plane and skydiving with pinpoint precision through mere 10-foot gap in a motel sign. Yeah, someone did that.
Grand Theft Auto V is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to fan videos. Now that the game offers a first-person mode, we can watch insane stunts through the eyes of virtual thrill seekers. That lends a whole new dimension to crazy stuff like this series of skydives, some of which begin with ejecting from the cockpit of a fighter jet.
This is one of nine videos that Rockstar Games, the developer of GTA V, has decided to highlight as one of its favorite fan creations. Los Santos By Night is the most downright cinematic fan-made video we’ve seen from the game. This is from a video game, folks.
It’s not all stunt montages and filmic explorations on Rockstar’s favorite videos list. Here’s the song “A Whole New World” from Disney’s Aladdin, Los Santos-style.
If you want to get in on the action of making these kinds of fan videos even if you don’t have editing software, the native video capture and editing tools on the PlayStation 4 are easy to use and provide high-quality video you can download to a USB drive.
If you do have video editing software, the sky is the limit for GTA V fan moviemaking.
