Hear that? Christmas bells are ringing, carolers are caroling, and GTA Online gamers are being pounced on by an atrociously-named Grinch parody. He’s one in every of a number of Christmas treats now stocked on the streets of Los Santos, which additionally pack snowmen to destroy, rooftop shootouts and, for some purpose, superpowered beasts getting chased by serial killers.
Alice O counts GTA Online’s seasonal occasions amongst her favourites, and Christmas does look like a pleasant time of yr to drop in. Everywhere is roofed in snow and festooned with decorations, together with varied alternatives to earn further money.

It’s Christmassy, in some way.
