Over the last 20 years, modding has been a huge part of Grand Theft Auto’s culture. Not only do mods keep older GTA games alive, they allow large communities with different interests to form around the series. Here are some of the most popular, influential, and weirdest mods in GTA history.
Aliens? That’s old hat, baby stuff—a rack of old hats made for babies. Modders have decided to turn Rockstar’s small step outside the bounds of planet Earth into a giant leap.
At first glance, Baby Driver doesn’t look like it uses genre conventions in the way that Edgar Wright’s other works have. While you can easily see the homages to zombie horror and paranoid sci-fi in Shaun of the Dead and World’s End, the fusion at the heart of Baby Driver’s DNA is initially more elusive to parse. But…
Right now, a little over 1,000 people are watching an AI drive like a maniac on GTA V. I can’t look away, even as the AI causes pandemonium across the streets of Los Santos.
Last year, some people became obsessed with an old fast food order that happens in GTA San Andreas. And now, a competitive eater tracked down all the food in real life, ordered it, and then tried to eat it all in one sitting.
You can go several hours in Grand Theft Auto IV before you get a gun. Soon after that, you’re blasting your way through shootouts with SWAT teams. But for those first few hours, you’re just some guy in Brooklyn, trying to make a new life.

I don’t think anybody would call GTA firefighters “competent,” but even so, their chaos can reach hilarious new heights under the right conditions.
For brief period over the weekend, Grand Theft Auto Online players were robbed of one of the game’s basic joys—they couldn’t steal police cars. Fortunately for them, the police couldn’t access them either.
Navid Khonsari has been a legal resident of the United States for 17 years. He’s worked on games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Resident Evil 7, and an interactive story about the Iranian Revolution called 1979 Revolution: Black Friday. These days, though, he doesn’t feel entirely welcome in the US or Iran, and…
Last month’s GTA Online update, Import/Export, added a slew of wacky vehicles. Since then, fans have used the update to do all sorts of outlandish things that must be seen to be believed.

OpenIV was used to start cracking open Grand Theft Auto V back in 2015, and now the Russian developers behind the modding tool have set their sites on bringing GTA IV’s Liberty City into the series’ latest entry.
Last week I started sizing up the new GTA Online update, Import/Export. It added a ton of new missions and wacky cars. But a lot of this content was inaccessible if you didn’t have a lot of in-game money. You’d have to be rich (virtually, at least) to play it. So I spent the last week getting money and have been…
