Role playing has been around forever, in which someone creates and pretends to be someone they’re not. The concept of “being someone else” is now a new feature of Grand Theft Auto V. GTA RP has dedicated servers where players create a character with a unique name, job, back-story, whatever and life the live of that person. Being incorporated into a popular game such as GTA might seem odd at first but the dedication shown off by certain players is impressive and frightening at the same time.

HOW TO GET ON TO A GTA V RP SERVER :

Of course, in a game such as GTA, players love to rob banks, street race, go on shooting sprees. But to enforce the laws of Los Santos, there are players who roleplay as police officers. And it’s no joke. You need to know the ins and outs of the legal system and the process of becoming an in-game cop is long and strenuous.

This new way of playing Grand Theft Auto has since spread into the popular streaming site, Twitch. Several of the most popular streamers such as Lirik and Summit1G have taken to these role-playing servers and have garnered large audiences. Lirik, who has created a character named Avon Barksdale (yes a character from The Wire), gets over 50,000 viewers when playing GTA RP. His interaction with other RP’ers and his in-game antics have led to the further growth of his already massive channel.
