Senior citizens get a second run at Grand Theft Auto V

Now that the React Channel has desensitized a group of senior citizens to Grand Theft Auto V, it’s time to see how they handle some specific mayhem.

Last time on “Elders Play Grand Theft Auto V,” the guests on the show rapidly evolved from “This is too violent!” to beating up pedestrians and blowing up police cruisers. 

For round two of their expedition into the state of San Andreas and the city of Los Santos this group of elder gamers were asked to get a tattoo, visit a strip club, enjoy a day on the beach, and pilot a helicopter gunship.

Everything except the flying part seemed to go pretty well, but not even core gamers are able to handle helicopters in GTA V, in our experience.
