How People Actually Play Grand Theft Auto V

Rockstar always tries to sell its Grand Theft Auto games with fancy trailers. Moody music, social commentary, beautiful sunsets. The thing is, that's not how anybody actually plays Grand Theft Auto.


They usually play it like this. With lots of car crashes. And senseless violence. And...axes to the butt?

This fantastic video was put together by Dustin Kaufman, and shows that even a compilation of glitches, kills and crashes — stuff we've seen a million times before — can be made into something worth watching (and something resembling an actual trailer) with some smart editing.

I must be a total loser because I just play GTA for the great atmosphere, soak up the music, the world design and the commentary, play the campaign and then never play it again.
