    "This is more for fun rather than an improvement on the game's mechanics. It basically lets you change the setting for the game to a desert wasteland, a tsunami-ridden post-apocalypse, or my favorite, the lost city of Atlantis. A fun GTA 5 mod to try out."

DID YOU KNOW?

The Grand Theft Auto or GTA game franchise has been around for 21 years now? The first ever GTA game released back in 1997 for Windows. This game and its successor, GTA 2 both featured 2D graphics and a top-down camera view. The gameplay of these games is all crime-based from assault, theft, and the like. They revolved around three major cities; Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas. These themes and locations will carry over through the rest of the game's series. The release of GTA 3 saw the series taking on a new direction. It was the first to feature a third-person, over the shoulder viewpoint. This was also the first that set the foundation for its open world nature. This is something that succeeding GTA games will be built upon moving forward.

Today, GTA is pretty much synonymous with open world games on all platforms. The franchise has seen great success on the PC side of things. This is due, in large part, to its active and healthy modding community. This holds true for its latest entry in the series, GTA 5. These GTA 5 mods introduce various improvement and features to the core game. From improved graphical textures to game modes and even standalone story expansions. There are so many mods to check out and is a great time for any budding modder.

    "This is a new game map for GTA: San Andreas. It is a full map conversion with props, but not all props. The screen shots look good for the mod, but the video doesn't work. We aren't able to see it in action without downloading. I wish the video worked, but even without it I would say it fits the topic."
