The latest installment of GTA was the most detailed and realistic yet, and while it was set in the fictional city of Los Santos, it does have a few similarities with a certain city on the west coast of the USA. 

This video, which imagines what the hit video game would look like in real life, takes to the streets of LA and using some nifty special effects, manages to create a version that's pretty similar to the real deal...or should that be fake deal? Digital deal? We're confused.

Of course, we have to emphasise that you definitely shouldn't try any of the things you see in video games in real life, that's a bad idea. Anyway, here's a little look at how they made the magic happen behind the scenes.
