Quarantine is slowly coming to an end. Here in Madrid, we are on Phase 2, meaning that terraces are open and we can drink outside, so we are no longer tied to downing 20 cent beers in our apartments. However, we still love drinking games and after the announcement of the exclusive GTA V package for the PlayStation 5, and in honour of fives, here’s the five best drinking games you can play on Grand Theft Auto.
This does not include any online games. I know the possibilities are endless with what you can do on GTA Online, but this list is strictly for offline mode with the use of cheats for groups of friends in the same room. There’s an online version of the list soon to come…
1. The Skyfall Swimming Pool
Enter the Skyfall cheat code, which places you sky falling from the highest altitude on the map. Depending on how much you decide to nose dive, you can be falling for minutes, and you have the ability to turn left or right and essentially land anywhere you want in the city. The challenge is to land in a swimming pool and survive. Now there are tonnes of swimming pools to land in, ones on rooftops, ones in the gardens of rich houses, but it’s extremely difficult to land in a pool when you’re falling at 100mph, and the chances of survival depends on the depth of the pool.
Skyfall cheat code: L1, L2, R1, R2, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, L1, L2, R1, R2, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT
2. 5 Star Outlast
This game requires one of the group to time on their phone. You must enter the cheat to increase your wanted level. Enter the code until you reach a five star wanted level. Once you’ve gotten five stars, start the timer. You have to last as long as you can, and the person who lasts the longest wins. But here’s the kicker, if you escape the cops, that doesn’t mean you win. The game is strictly remain alive with a five star wanted level for as long as possible. The first player sets are time, if the next player doesn’t beat the time the he/she has to down their drink, and if the time is beat then the player who set the time has to drink. And so on and so forth.
Raise wanted level cheat code: R1, R1, CIRCLE, R2, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT
3. Mount Chiliad Downhill
First you gotta reach the top of the iconic mountain, which might take a while. But once you’re up there, you should find two dirt bikes. You have to make it all the way to the bottom of the mountain without dying, and you are not allowed to brake, not once. It’s almost impossible. If you die you gotta down your drink. If you somehow manage to defeat the mountain you nominate someone in the group to down their drink.
In case you can’t find the dirt bikes at the top of the mountain, here’s the cheat code: CIRCLE, X, L1, CIRCLE, CIRCLE, L1, CIRCLE, R1, R2, L2, L1, L1
4. Oncoming Traffic
This is another timed game. This one is simple and requires no cheat codes, but it’s also the hardest. You have to drive against oncoming traffic and you are not allowed to take your finger off the accelerator. The timer starts as soon as you find a long oncoming road and you hit accelerate. The first player sets are time, if the next player doesn’t beat the time the he/she has to down their drink, and if the time is beat then the player who set the time has to drink. And so on and so forth.
5. Find The Bugatti
This one is so simple, you have to find the Bugatti Veyron. It’s the rarest car in the game, and few people can claim to have found it without cheating and looking it up online. Take it in turns, you each have five minutes, after every minutes the person’s whose turn it was has to pour some of their drink in to a dirty pint. By the time you’ve filled the pint, or by the time the Veyron has been found, whichever comes first, the loser has to down the dirty pint. Hopefully you’re not all just drinking beer and there’s some variety to people’s drinks.
