7 Mind-Blowing Moments in GTA Games

7 Mind-Blowing Moments in GTA Games

Grand theft auto has been a series that has yielded a ton of times you just go wow did that just happen and I think we’re going to talk about a few of those today on review favorite so here are 7 mind-blowing moments in GTA games.

List of 7 Mind-Blowing Moments in GTA

Fly to Liberty City

Starting off at number seven on the list of 7 mind-blowing moments in GTA we have.

It’s the fly to liberty city in grand theft auto san Andrea’s sometimes all it takes is four little words to blow people’s minds.

This moment comes from the mission saint mark’s bistro, in it salvatore leone asked carl to take out his rival marco ferrelli  looking back to playing the game bag of the day.

I’m not sure what i expected but i know that i didn’t expect what actually happened like you literally drive to the airport get on a plane and that’s when your next objective pops up fly to liberty city.

It is a crazy message to get in an open world game because you never go to  another place in these things you got a map and that’s it that’s how an open world game works right.

But now the game gets you into a jet and gets you flying.

So you just start flying and flying and flying until you are off the map and then the game transitions to an entirely new environment.

It’s outside saint mark’s bistro from grand theft auto 3 but it’s all covered in snow.

From here you get into a shootout inside the restaurant and eventually take out Pirelli.

When it’s all over you’re back in the plane and you manually fly back to los ventures open world games just didn’t do stuff like this back then in fact not a lot of them do it.

Now assassin’s creed Valhalla kind of comes to mind but it’s not even of the same thing because while it transports you to different environments it doesn’t transport you to a different environment in the game’s world that you’ve already been to and have a certain nostalgia for It and wow it was mind-blowing.

Michelle Government Agent

And number six is michelle is a government agent from grand theft auto 4

The first girlfriend you get in gta 4 is michelle who comes off pretty normal.

She comes on a little strong when you first meet but i’ve had that happen seriously like i think most people have had somebody come on a little strong in their lives.

For most people it’s not something you really think about too much like yeah some of her behavior is a little Suspicious but i wasn’t really paying attention.

So if you’re like me her revelation during the mission the snowstorm hit you like a slap in the face.

She’s actually watching you for Bernard the government agent that works for the united liberty paper office.

And that’s why she seems so curious about what you’re doing and who you’re talking to.

It wasn’t just nosy girlfriend behaviour, it was that she was a spy who was spying on you and keeping track of what you were doing for whatever reason.

It’s never made explicitly clear but that’s kind of what makes the whole thing so surprising.

Once she reveals she’s been sent to watch you she’s pretty much never seen again leaving players to kind of wonder what the hell just happened my thinking is mission accomplished.

She disappeared but there’s other implications that could be taken from it like for instance she could feel guilty who knows it does feel like a bit of a threat they could have tied up later but to be fair a lot does happen in grand theft auto 4.

So i don’t blame them for just kind of being like yeah it’s a government agent who tricks you that’s that it’s fine it works ah what do you do.

Lance’s betrayal

And number five on the list of 7 mind-blowing moments in GTA is lance’s betrayal from grand theft auto vice city

Gta games always full of betrayals of course but some are a little more shocking than others.

This one’s definitely surprising Lance seems like your best pal for most the game but in the last mission called keep.

Your friends close he betrays tommy out of nowhere and you’re forced to kill him going back through the game, rockstar does plant the seeds warning you about lance’s possible betrayal but it’s easy to forget how bitter he slowly becomes over the course of the game.

After his introduction at the start the prequel vice city stories also elaborates his character a lot more to show you that.

While he seems like a smooth criminal in vice city he’s actually kind of a screw-up one of the better examples of lance’s potential betrayal is in the mission bar brawl.

Where he tells tommy there’s a place that refuses to pay them protection money and tommy yells at him for not doing anything about it.

It’s subtle but the cut scene shows how lance is getting lazier and more entitled after having tommy take out diaz.

It also shows that tommy reacts with frustration And people don’t love that especially if they’re starting to feel entitled somebody.

You know chides them for something they’re like who are you, who are you to tell me that for a lot of players the moment kind of seems like it comes out of nowhere, but it’s one of a few hints that lance betrays you just hard to notice the first time through no i sold you out tommy.

Jet pack

Number four is the jet pack from grand theft auto san  Andreas.

Back when we were all first playing san andreas i don’t think that anybody expected that we’d be infiltrating an analog for area 51 the game starts as a relatively grounded crime drama and ramps up slowly over the course of its run time.

The desert missions where this game just goes off the deep end honestly the mission called black project probably wouldn’t be enough to list all by itself if not for the mind-blowing conclusion .

The point of the mission is that you’re sneaking in area 51 to steal a secret government project you just don’t know what it is you just know that truth wants it so i like a lot of people assumed it was gonna be some random object or like a weapon.

You know like a material just something you had to walk out of and get away with uh was not expecting a full-blown jet pack was not expecting to escape through a silo playing the game the first time.

The whole thing is just insane because at this point you really think you’ve seen it all i mean the game is absolutely stuck with cars boats planes and everything in between.

You’re kind of thinking well you know saints row carved out a certain amount of territory for itself and they’re not going to take beyond their normal stuff but jet pack good jet pack on top of Everything.

It’s nuts if you already know to expect a jet pack the impact of it is maybe a little less but for those of us who played the game when it first came out it was just a crazy amazing moment in a game that was literally filled with crazy amazing moments.

Museum Peace

Number three on the list of 7 mind-blowing moments in GTA is museum peace from grand theft auto 4

One of those missions that are more mind-blowing in hindsight because while it’s good in GTA 4 its significance doesn’t come into focus until much later it’s an important mission in the story of GTA 4 because this is the one where Nico.

Johnny attempts to sell some diamonds but the whole thing goes sideways after a third character blows the deal at the time, it seems like just another thing that happens in the game.

The only clue, that there’s something unique is that you get the impossible trinity achievement for beating it.

For a lot of players, the achievement’s their first clue that the world of GTA 4 is actually a lot bigger than we think at the time rockstar hadn’t announced the stories from liberty city stuff.

So it seemed like the third guy who attacked the meat was just a weird non-sequitur that wouldn’t pay off rockstar was playing the long game though.

The guy who attacked the meeting was lewis the player character from the ballot of gay tony while johnny was the main guy you play as the loss of the damden like before you even knew who they were rockstar had already hidden both protagonists from the DLC in the game.

Sure enough, when you play the DLC you see the same events play out from that character’s perspective it’s the kind of multi-character storytelling they’d go on to expand in grand theft auto 5 but what was so mind-blowing was just how unexpected and deeply integrated the DLC characters were into the story of the game.

Well before Anybody had any idea who these guys were especially lewis.

Diamonds in the opening cut scene

Number two is the diamonds in the opening cut scene in grand theft auto 4

One of the more mind-blowing elements of grand theft auto 4 is how the diamond plot weaves through the entire story Nico doesn’t actually do anything related to the diamonds until the mission takes in the trash where Nico collects diamonds hidden in the trash cans that are.

Where it technically starts in GTA 4 but there was actually a whole story involving these things going on in liberty city stories DLC the diamonds were put in the trash cans and the mission diamonds in the rough in lost in the damn and the diamonds were originally bought during the ballad of gay tony.

The diamond storyline basically ends up being a big shaggy dog story everyone who tries to get them ends up dead and eventually found by a hobo on the street at the end of The game.

There was one little mind-blowing detail I never actually noticed until recently during the opening cut scene of the game for a second you can see the cook on the ship where the game starts is hiding a diamond in the cake batter so it goes full circle and was totally planned out to be the central story of grand theft auto 4.

From the beginning, the diamonds appear at the chronologically last mission in the game in gay tony and they Appeared at the very start in the opening cut scene of grand theft auto 4.

It’s a crazy piece of attention to detail that crosses over between what is technically multiple games it’s a little detail it’s easy to overlook but it ties all the events of the GTA 4 stories together and finally.

Smoking riders betrayal

At number one on the list of 7 mind-blowing moments in GTA is the smoking rider’s betrayal from San Andreas

Like there’s no bigger betrayal in grand theft auto the entire series than this one basically the entire green saber mission.It’s pretty mind-blowing but it starts where it seems like everything’s working up pretty well for you.

The grove street families are working together again sweet is good with you he’s planning on taking on the ball as gang-like at this point it kind of seems like if this were a shorter game with less content you would be nearing the end of the narrative stuff is going.

Well, you’re taking over thankfully rockstar wanted to tell a more intricate story because This was masterful storytelling with just like huge impact on your way of meeting under the Mulholland intersection.

The mission just changes completely you get this call from caesar who reveals that big smoke and the writer have been meeting with 10 penny in secret the mission name comes from the green saber that Polanski drives.

The same car that was driven by the people that killed carl’s mom sweet’s meeting is an ambush and both brothers are taken into custody leaving smoke and Ryder as the new kings of Los Santos it’s a pretty shocking reveal, especially with big smoke who seems like your buddy the entire time but unlike Vance i kind of think his betrayal is pretty well set up.

it’s pretty well established that he’s not happy with his lot in life and he wants more and another tip-off is the fact that he’s the only member of the main four who doesn’t actually live on grove street maybe the most mind-blowing thing about smoke’s betrayal is its relation to his famous fast food order.

I’ll have two number nines a number nine large a number six with extra dip a number seven two number 45s one with cheese and a large soap there’s speculation the order was intentionally drawn out in order to give the balance more time to ambush them it’s just a theory but it’s one of many

Moments where if you go back to the start of the game after smoke’s betrayal is revealed it kind of feels like there’s foreshadowing here obviously now everybody knows that big smoke betrays you.

But back when the game came out this was a huge surprise and really felt like wow they’re going for it in terms of the story here.
