Released almost 2 years ago, to universal critical acclaim and to a large number of controversy, it seemed unlikely that anyone would get bored of GTA 5 and put it on the shelf to collect the dust. A unique and highly engaging story line featuring three characters – the Sopranos-like Michael, troubled teenager Franklin and meth-head Trevor – the game keeps it fun, satirical and addictive for whole time. The shift to large open world allowing player to roam freely and discover hidden treasures that developers left hidden around the world makes the experience non linear. And even if you have finished the game and you think you have seen it all, you should look in to the whole new side of the game - game filled with secret bonuses, missions and "Easter Eggs". In this guide we will offer you a new look at GTA 5 and list some of the best bonuses it has to offer. And if you are not completely sure you should start from the beginning, check out the unofficial trailer above to feel the passion again!

  10. If you stop your car in the road and block traffic, drivers behind you will flick you off.

  13. If you hail and hop into a taxi at the airport when someone was already waiting for one, they’ll get mad and shout at you, or try to pick a fight.
  14. When wading in water, your clothes get wet - but only up to the point you actually waded. The rest of you stays dry.
  15. Some character’s voice mail messages will change as the game progresses, depending on where they are and what they’re doing at that point in the game.
