GTA V: The Longest RPG Shot

GTA V: The Longest RPG Shot

(NSFW: Language) Whos Chaos and his friend try to hit one of their buddies with an RPG from increasingly long distances in GTA Online. Yes the last shot is impossible, but hating on that is like watching An Idiot Abroad for the scenery.

The Sopranos x GTA V

The Sopranos x GTA V

While we miss Satriale’s, Pizzaland and 97 cent gasoline, we have to say that 8-Bit Bastard’s machinima recreation of the opening of the HBO classic The Sopranos using Grand Theft Auto V is still pretty solid. Comparison video here.

Hat_Dogs

YouTuber STBlackST managed to cram a lot of jokes and inside references in this all too brief mashup of Watch_Dogs and Team Fortress 2. Both the Blu and the Red Spy should mind what they post online.

Terminator 2 x GTA V

Terminator 2 x GTA V

John Chapman put together this faithful shot-by-shot remake of the classic truck/motorcycle chase sequence from Terminator 2: Judgment Day, using nothing but Grand Theft Auto V. It’s too bad there’s no T-1000 character in the game.

Team Fortress 2 x MGS

Team Fortress 2 x MGS

Skyfall x GTA V

Skyfall x GTA V

Brass Ballas and a group of Redditors used GTA V to recreate the epic train fight sequence from Skyfall. While you can’t get the same cars or characters in the game’s engine, it’s still an impressive effort. But where’s the excavator?

Beard Fortress

Beard Fortress

OBEY THE BEARD. YouTuber nonamesleft used Source Filmmaker to make a short music video for Obey the Beard by the comical heavy metal band Psychostick. Screw portable chargers, let’s all just grow beards.

Inconvenience Store

Inconvenience Store

(NSFW: Language) Filmmaker Stuart Neaverson used Grand Theft Auto V to make this short silent film about a routine robbery gone wrong. You should’ve listened to the man, miss. Plus the bags were empty.

Disruption

Disruption

What starts out as a cinematic drama turns out to be a silly piece of metafiction and an amusing animation within an animation. Disruption is YouTuber FineLeatherJackets’ entry for the 2013 Saxxy Awards.

Lil’ Guardian Pyro

Lil’ Guardian Pyro

The Pyro is asked to guard a crucial turret. Itching to go back to battle, s/he uses a toy for a proxy. One half of the Cremator’s Conscience stars in this cute Source Filmmaker machinima. Vote for it on the Saxxy Awards here.

End of the Line (Trailer)

The Turret Anthem

A ton of musical turrets overwhelm GLaDOS in Zachariah Scott’s latest Source Filmmaker machinima. We love the king turret and his minions. The song was composed by Lars Erik Fjøsne.

Grand Theft Auto IV x Gymkhana

Grand Theft Auto IV x Gymkhana

An epic machinima recreation of Ken Block’s urban hooning, using Liberty City as the playground for his female alter-ego “Kendra Black.” Of course, Ken has to deal with those pesky real world physics.

Transformers in a Nutshell

Transformers in a Nutshell

This machinima captures the essence of Michael Bay’s Transformers movies. If only this was released back in 2007, then we would have saved hours of our lives. ALL THE BUTTS, ROLL OUT!

The Great Battle of Skyrim

The Great Battle of Skyrim

Tyrannicon’s epic machinima makes use of Skyrim, various mods, 500 Draugr, 200 skeletons, 500 Dwarven Warriors and a dragon. Our graphic cards would melt if we tried to run this in real time.

Battlefield 3: Run

Battlefield 3: Run

There’s no story in this Battlefield 3 machinima. It’s more of an FPS gamer’s daydream, as YouTuber JackFrags rambos his way through the Davamand Peak map. Song is Departure by Ed Harrison.
