7 Wackiest PC Mods in the Grand Theft Auto Series
This is one of the rare mods to have a subtitle, and it’s the perfectly appropriate: “lol what?” If you’re imagining a Big Surf Island kind of thing here, you’d be dead wrong, as this mod is not simply oriented around being able to do big jumps. Stunt Island features an Olympics-style luge tube and a Peggle board for you to drive down, and many other things I won’t even try to explain, because they are too odd for my limited Alabama vernacular. Suffice to say the Stunt Island experience might confuse you a bit.
I mean, yeah, zombies, whatever. Wait, though. We’ve had many zombie games, but we haven’t had any set in an open world as vast or as legitimately open as Liberty City (aside from Undead Nightmare, which was quite enjoyable). It doesn’t seem to be super complicated, but it does have a few unique game modes (like “Left 4 Theft”) and it’s pretty novel to just run around the city with all this going on. I should note that there are other zombie mods for GTA IV, but this one is the most popular. The thing that really matters, though, is that if you’ve spent a decent amount of time in this Liberty City, seeing it all zombiefied will be pretty confusing, just as it was with New Austin.
So, yes, there is a mod for GTA 4 that rebuilds the old San Andreas map into the new engine, but there wasn’t really anything to do there (no missions, etc.), so it was just kinda cool to look at and wasn’t super interesting to me. But when you take the HD version of San Andreas, and cover it with snow, you’ve got my attention. Because I think I would cry if I ever looked out my window and saw snow covering the sidewalk. They’d be happy tears, I swear. I miss precipitation so much, guys. (Yes, there is a snow mod for vanilla GTA 4 as well, but snow in New York isn’t weird.)
There is a GTA 4 KITT mod, but I like this one better. It’s got the full gamut of Knight Rider features, including the ability to jump really high and drive in the water and do the ejecto seato move, as Tyrese might say. Yes, of course, it also talks to you and has legit sound effects and all that. This is the real thing. Literally it is real.
