All The GTA Covers Embrace A Bizarre Little Easter Egg



Picture: Rockstar / KotakuI don’t keep in mind precisely once I seen it, however sooner or later I used to be wanting on the PS2 instances for Grand Theft Auto Vice Metropolis and San Andreas and noticed a humorous similarity: they each had a helicopter within the high left. Then I checked GTA III’s case and it too had the identical factor. Then I checked out different GTA online game instances and realized that putting a heli within the high left-hand nook is certainly a factor. This all began again on the duvet for GTA III. Within the high left hand of the collage of photographs that make up the duvet artwork, you possibly can see a police helicopter.

In fact, as soon as I pointed it out folks would ask me why and I don’t have a great reply for that. Maybe it’s a kind of issues that started off accidentally. You understand, somebody put a heli in the identical spot twice in a row and somebody determined to stick with it for the following one. After which an accident grew to become a convention. A bizarre custom, however one which in all probability doesn’t have any nefarious conspiracies about it on-line. But.
