Comparisons Show Shockingly Accurate GTA 6 Scenes From Real Life

Fans have praised Rockstar for portraying Florida perfectly.

Story Highlights

  • Many scenes in the GTA 6 reveal trailer are inspired by real life, as recent comparisons have revealed.
  • Rockstar Games has perfectly satirized Florida Miami by using absurd real-life situations in the trailer.
  • Fans argue that the trailer is more of a documentary than satire, pointing out the cultural changes over the years.

The release of the first GTA 6 trailer has given us the first glimpse into the new open world created by Rockstar Games. Many events shown in the footage were initially seen as the devs satirizing Miami FL to the fullest. However, recent comparisons have revealed that most of the scenes in the trailers are almost replicas of real-life events that have taken place in Florida in the past, surprising many gamers in the process.

The Reddit post shared by u/Bradbrad7 on the r/GTA6 subreddit is among the many that point out the striking replication by Rockstar Games. Remember the alligator coming out of the swimming pool? Yes, it is not out of the ordinary for alligators to invite themselves into the lawns of Floridan residents. The gator visiting a local store down the road, as shown in the GTA 6 trailer, has also happened in real life.

IRL references people found so far from the trailer.

However, these are far from the weirdest things the trailer portrayed. Events depicting a man running around naked on the streets or another one doing yard work nude in his garden were included in the trailer; these situations have also been reported in real-life Floridan news in the past. Additionally, the hammer Karen, as the Redditors dubbed her, is also inspired by real life. Most of the trailer is filled with unique references like these.

All in all, many fans have agreed that Florida is the best place for Rockstar Games to satirize to the fullest in this day and age. A few users on the forum even added that the region is not even a satire but rather more of a documentary. Florida is often recognized for its wild memes and outlandish scenes around the globe. We may get to see even more parodies of real-life events and popular memes in GTA 6 after its anticipated launch.

The trailer has been a gargantuan success for Rockstar Games, racking up over 99 million views with 8.9 million likes a little after 24 hours since coming out. On the other hand, it had to be released early due to a leak, which disappointed gamers and devs alike.

GTA 6 is confirmed to launch on current-gen PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X consoles sometime in 2025. The devs have not mentioned a day-one PC release yet.
