Aaaaa! His plane just barely avoided smashing nose-first into that — oh no! Swoop under the stoplight! Swoop! OK, phew, but oh god there is a building RIGHT IN YOUR FACE. I think I'm gonna be sick.
There is a long and storied history of physics-defying GTA V stunts that would drain both the evil and knievel right out of Evel Knievel, and next-gen GTA's first-person view makes them even nuttier. In fairness, first-person stunting isn't quite as advanced as third-person yet, but it's about ten times more terrifying. No longer are players detached puppet masters, cackling stunt-obsessed deities twisting strings and spines. Now they are nose-to-nose with certain doom. Observe in this very precarious parachute video from Slogoman:
Here's another solid parachute stunt from BoomStickChick. It, um, doesn't end well:
Really though, who needs parachutes at all? Here's curtymc leaping out of a plane and into an itsy bitsy puddle pool of water:
Bike stunts, though, right? Those are fun. Here's abdur aslam not quite sticking the landing:
And now for the most gut-clenching selections on our menu: first-person jet stunts, aka "Nonononono, AHHHH STOP NO SWERVE HOW HAVE YOU NOT EXPLODED YET." Here's are some impressive low-to-the-ground loopty loops from TeamUnlocated:
And here's Game Eater daring the ground to not lift its craggy stone fist two inches upward and punch their plane in its soft underbelly. This one is seriously nerve-wracking to watch:
Have you spotted any good first-person GTA V stunts? Drop them below so I can have nervous fits while watching them and then go lay down for a little while and maybe cry.
