Take the technical requirements of action games, blend them with the RNG of an RPG, throw in a physics engine, and that's GTA speedrunning.
But I saw a new GTA3 WR get set just now, so cool?
seems more like a test of luck if anything
@Kars; - Speedrunning is heavily luck-based, especially Pokemon. GTA though combines some of the nastiest of both worlds. It is possible in San Andreas - unlikely as it is but it has happened - for a plane to fall out of the sky and crash into you, killing you and ending your run.
