We have seen some pretty wacky things being done with GTA V lately. There have been mods that replace cars with bullets, transform your character into an invincible Jesus Christ and there has even been one that allowed the cows to ride motorcycles, thereby rising above the pigs as the dominant farm animals. What I have been enjoying though, is watching some of the videos that players have created using the new Director Mode for the PC version of the game. Whilst browsing through a few of them last night, I came across the video below which showed how a fan recreated a summary of the story of AMC’s Breaking Bad using only what was available in the game. As a massive fan of the show, I was very impressed with the outcome.
As you can see, they managed to capture some of the most pivotal scenes taken from different points of Breaking Bad‘s 5-season run accompanied by the song that played at the end of the last episode. In a world that’s overrun with drugs, gang violence and backstabbing; there couldn’t be a better game to recreate Walter White’s descent into villainy than GTA V. I think that over the next few months, we could see some really awesome videos being made with the Director Mode but while we wait for a recreation of The Wire or 24, here is a video of Trevor doing a tremendous impersonation of Jackass‘ Johnny Knoxville, complete with leopard-skin banana-hammock.
