This is what I call an interesting idea for a video. Nowadays, open-world games are dominating the gaming industry, and they have been around in abundance for ages. Wide, seamless, varied game settings have captivated the minds of many a player, with all sorts of hidden secrets and stunning landscapes. However, how well do most players come to know these open worlds? How much of it do they explore? How much of it do they miss? How many players actually go for 100% completion?
Well, even if you don’t explore every nook and cranny of a map, chances are, you’ll be spending a whole lot of time running back and forth all around it. However, these massive and expansive worlds may suddenly seem a lot smaller if you take the most direct route from one end to the other.
One GTA fan decided to walk from one end of the GTA franchise to the other, by running all across the maps of GTA, GTA II, GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas, GTA IV, and finally GTA V, and record it the whole way through. He also times how long it takes to walk from one end of each map to the other, and then add up the time. In the end, if you start at the first game and end with the most recent, you’ll have spent 4 hours and 40 minutes in real time just walking through virtual worlds.
The final result is somewhat skewed due to the GTA V trek having been done in first person, in which the movement speed is greater than the third person walking speed of previous titles, so in truth the time to cross Los Santos and Blaine county would be significantly more than a measly 52 minutes.
How well have you guys come to know the map of GTA V?
