Grand Theft Auto Online allows players to create their own character and do just about whatever they want in San Andreas, and that now includes walking on water, thanks to a glitch discovered by YouTube user Big Spaz. To take advantage of the glitch, Grand Theft Auto 5 players must visit the docks at the Puerto del Sol Marina in the Vespucci neighborhood of Los Santos. After wading into the sea, taking cover and then heading back up a ramp onto land, players will be able to dash along the surface of the water. Big Spaz notes that the only ways to get out of the glitch are to kill yourself or have someone else hit you out of the water. And there's no word on whether this works in the single-player story mode as well as in GTA Online. Grand Theft Auto 5 was released last September on...

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City memorably opened with a title screen mimicking the Commodore 64 loading a game on tape. Animator Balazs Kalocsai has flipped the script here, showing the title sequence for Grand Theft Auto 5 done in a low-res, Commodore 64 style. If you want to see Kalocsai's take on what Vice City would have looked like had it actually been played on a Commodore 64, well, he's got a video of that, too (plus three other modern titles.) Previously he de-made Watch Dogs on the 64.

Grand Theft Auto 5 players on PlayStation 3 can turn their time in Los Santos into an underwater adventure with a mod that brings the city beneath the ocean waves. According to modder "Bushigan," sinking Los Santos requires a modded PS3 console, since players are going to have to shuffle some files to get the mod to work. The mod also includes the ability to transform vehicles into submarines for a way to get around that sticks to the underwater theme. Some rooftops poke above the crashing waves, and any humans and vehicles that respawn underwater automatically begin floating upwards to the surface, as shown in the videos above and below. The mod is available for GTA 5's single-player mode and can be downloaded here.

Grand Theft Auto 5 and Dead Island: Riptide's bloody torso statue were among the ways the media "failed women in 2013," according to a video created by The Representation Group and titled How the Media Failed Women in 2013. The video has been picked up by media outlets like Time Magazine and serves as a lowlight reel of the year. It juxtaposes the achievements and breakthroughs made in 2013, such as women making it onto the list of Time's most influential people, with instances of sexism in commercials, music videos, video games and on the news. Almost halfway through the video, a scene from Grand Theft Auto 5 and a news item about Dead Island: Riptide's bloody torso statue make an appearance, making the statement that some video games — like many other forms of media — are part of...
