Whether you're a big gamer or you hate everything to do with video games and virtual reality, you've undoubtedly heard of action-adventure game Grand Theft Auto. Originally created by British developer DMA Design in 1997, Grand Theft Auto now has over 10 different versions and it's the fourth most popular game franchise ever after Mario, Pokemon, and Tetris. In spite of countless technology innovation awards, multiple GTA fan theories, and character voiceovers done by such silver screen legends as Samuel L. Jackson, Burt Reynolds, and Phil Collins, GTA has been criticized incessantly.

In fact, the game's extremely mature content tends to make social rights advocates and parents quake in their boots. Violence is more prevalent in GTA than in almost any other game series. Many players enjoy losing themselves in the simulated world where they can solicit and then murder sex workers, rob unsuspecting pedestrians, and blow up enemies with the click of a button. It is many concerned mothers' worst fear to see young children playing the mature game because law is completely relative in the GTA universe. In fact, it seems that the more aggressive users are more heavily rewarded.

Grand Theft Auto players are usually aware of the game's critics but they play anyway. Perhaps the abandonment of law and order is wholly appealing to them or perhaps they just like the more mundane aspects of the game: doing yoga, attending therapy, smoking pot on the couch. Perhaps the occasional mundanity of the Vice City world makes gamers forget about their own normal existences, giving them something to look forward to. GTA players have attempted to explain their fondness for the virtual world but it's actually the revelation of their most messed up game escapades that made a huge splash on Reddit.

Below is a selection of the craziest things Auto players have done in the fictional realm. Maybe you'll be put off by them, maybe you'll use them as inspiration during your next Xbox login.
