When invulnerable criminals go rampaging through the streets of Los Santos, it can be a terrible, wonderful thing.

This video by YouTuber Sly Shooter shows that thwarting the efforts of the cops to try and shut down a super-crook can be both hilarious and an inspiration to pull off really impressive in-game feats. Invincibility is nothing new to Grand Theft Auto. There's been a code to either instantly replenish health or make players immune to damage in most of the major GTA releases. Sure, it takes away a lot of the risk. But playing with invincibility is like going on a responsibility-free bender through the intricate cynical sandboxes built by Rockstar. You're shouting at the systems to come at you with their worst and shrugging it off.
