It’s all I see when I close my eyes
It’s been three weeks and changing since Rockstar Games played Santa by giving everyone their first look at Grand Theft Auto 6 ahead of its vague 2025 release date. During that time, thirsty fans watched the record-breaking trailer over 160 million times, which was apparently more than enough to recreate the video in almost every game, style and formats under the sun.
Let’s start with some obvious facts: Grand Theft Auto 6 recreated in the previous Grand Theft Auto Games.
RavenwestR1 used various mods to reproduce every major scene from the trailer in Grand Theft Auto 5. I particularly enjoy Michael de Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Philips making appearances as random residents of Vice City.
And if Grand Theft Auto 6 took place in Liberty City and played Grand Theft Auto 4 the protagonist Niko Bellic? It might look like this:
And finally, someone reinvented Grand Theft Auto 6 as my favorite game in the series, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.
Grand Theft Auto sister series Red Dead Redemption 2 I had fun too, but I couldn’t choose a favorite.
At its peak, the Saints Row the series was Grand Theft Autois ‘s most popular and successful competitor, so on some level it makes sense to recreate the Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer using Saints Row 2.
From there, the possibilities are endless. Fortnite? Of course!
Minecraft? Why not!
The Sims 4? All right!
Garry’s module? This is an older meme, but it’s true.
But undoubtedly the most impressive is Grand Theft Auto 6 made in real Lego, stop-motion style.
Being old, I also like people who carry Grand Theft Auto 6 go back in time using, for example, graphics modeled on the original PlayStation…
…streaming the trailer on a CRT TV from the early 2000s…
…and imagine a retro-futuristic world where the distant game was released in 1956.
And finally, I can’t not shout out this trailer made up entirely of stock footage, which creator Simply called “surprisingly easy.”
It’s funny how much Grand Theft Auto 6 The format and pace of the reveal has moved online despite the relatively short time it’s been around, but I guess that’s just another testament to how quickly the internet moves these days. And if nothing else, at least a whole new generation is learning to appreciate Tom Petty’s music, which is always a win in my opinion.
