6 Reasons You Should Replay GTA 5

With GTA 6 expected to launch in 2025, GTA fans have some time on their hands. This waiting period is perfect for replaying GTA 5.

Even though it’s been a decade since its release, GTA 5 remains one of the top games from 2013, not to mention that the story mode hasn’t received any updates.

But don’t be quick to dismiss it! There are still some reasons to give it another playthrough.

Top 6 Reasons To Replay GTA 5

GTA 5 is undeniably one of the greatest games ever made. We believe everyone should give it another shot, no matter the reasons.

Whether it’s the story, the characters, or the vast open world that draws us in, there are also plenty of other reasons to dive back in.

1. Finish The Story In The Different Way

GTA 5 begins with the “Prologue” mission, where you dive into a bank robbery without much backstory. Then, you face 3 choices at the end, with the Deathwish ending being the most accepted one.

The diversity of choices and approaches during missions, plus how Rockstar games keep their secrets hidden until the end, requires you to piece it all together after completing the missions. Clearly, this aspect makes replaying the game worthwhile.

Not to mention that there are many missions that you should replay at least twice to comprehend them.

2. More Mods – More Experience

In fact, this is just one of the many things mods can doโ€”create explosions, spawn boats on the streets, blow up pedestrians, and enable invincibility, just to name a few.

As a result, installing a mod lets you explore Blaine County in a much more chaotic manner than ever before.

However, we highly recommend installing mods after finishing the story at least once, as they can reduce the game’s tension and make missions less challenging.

3. Graphics Enhancements

Back in its release year, GTA 5 had impressive graphics. Yet, compared to newer AAA games, even with the highest settings, it seems a bit outdated.

That’s where graphics mods come in. These mods don’t change how the game works, but they upgrade how it looks.

Popular mods like “NaturalVision Remastered” adjust the visuals, making GTA 5 feel like a brand-new version.

Additionally, one of the best free graphics mods we recommend is “Redux“. By installing them, you can enjoy GTA 5 once again in a new, fresh way.

4. Explore the Hidden Myths and Easter Eggs

For the first time playing GTA 5, you might pay close attention to missions and the story without being aware of the presence of Easter Eggs and in-game myths, which are discussed daily in GTA-related topics on the Internet.

GTA 5 is packed with collectibles (Scrap Letters, Peyote plants, etc), Easter Eggs, and mysterious myths that, after researching online, make you want to replay it to uncover them.

Not to mention that GTA 5 has tons of details that only the experts can find out. This is one of the main reasons why playing GTA 5 takes up hundreds of hours.

5. Participate in More Activities

In GTA 5’s story mode, there are side missions that offer in-game sports and activities. But they’re not just missionsโ€”they’re much more than that!

You can invest in stocks to become a billionaire, visit strip clubs, flirt with girls, explore Los Santos at night, play golf, darts, tennis, yoga, and lots more. These endless activities make you want to revisit GTA 5 for endless fun!

6. Challenge Yourself with Speedrun

Did you know that the best speedrun record for GTA 5 stands at 5 hours, 42 minutes, and 31 seconds, even though it might take around 30 to 35 hours to finish the story?

Speedrunning is more about achieving goals than experiencing the game. Want to beat this record? Why not give it a try and set your own record or compare it with other GTA fans?

That’s why replaying GTA 5 multiple times helps in setting the fastest speedrun.
