Into the Deep – a GTA V Wildlife Documentary

A documentary entirely shot with the in-game visuals of Grand Theft Auto V and narrated and edited in the traditional style of popular nature documentaries by YouTube user 8-Bit-Bastard. It’s interesting to note that although it appears to be intended as a parody, the video has received many comments complaining about the inaccurate details of the narration, forcing the YouTube user to comment about the issue:

Hi guys! Some people have been saying it’s not totally accurate – of course it isn’t. We’re not professional wildlife researchers, we’re idiots who play computer games. Enjoy!


The hyper realistic aspect of the in-game sea world and the detailed editing and voice-over create a totally believable documentary piece, challenging traditional notions of representation and simulation.
