1. Giant beating heart inside the Statue of Happiness in GTA 4
GTA 4 has The Statue of Happiness standing over Liberty City. The statue has a seriously creepy smile which can easily unnerve anyone. To add to that, there are also rumors that there is something inside her copper rib cage, and a lot of fans think that it is big heart which keeps beating.
You can find a door which is marked with a message “No Hidden Content This Way” when you reach the top of the base of the Statue of Happiness. You can use a helicopter to reach that point. Once you reach the door, you’ll find a path which will take you to the giant chained up human heart which keeps beating. Creepy, isn’t it?
2. Movements of the serial killer and his victims can be tracked in GTA 5
In GTA 5, when you go to the right abandoned building you would be able to find the words “THERE WILL BE 8” on the wall. There are various other marks of graffiti in the game, but this particular one is considered to be important by the fans. They think that this graffiti can let us know the movements of a serial killer of the game.
The rumor started when several players claimed that they found newspapers which mentioned Merle Abrahams as the ‘Infinity Killer.’ The newspaper also mentioned that he had already murdered eight people.
Apart from this, there’s also a poem written on a rock with the number 8 scrawled around it. These indication proves that the rumors about the killer were right and the bodies can be found at the bottom of the ocean.
3. Pedestrian rain at Caligula’s Palace casino in GTA San Andreas
This was one of the craziest GTA rumors ever. Players claimed that it actually rains pedestrians in GTA San Andreas’ Caligula Palace casino. Although it sounds really crazy and impossible, the rumor turned out to be true.
You can experience it for yourself by visiting the Caligula Palace casino and by starting a shooting spree inside it. After shooting some of the NPCs, move up to the roof and you’ll see the people you killed below appearing above your head on their way down.
They’ll then splatter against the roof of the casino they same way rain does. This is actually a glitch which makes the pedestrians fall down from the sky into the roof of the casino.
4. GTA San Andreas’ mass grave
GTA is all about theft and murder. Murders occur on a regular basis in each title of the Grand Theft Auto series. Things are not the exception in GTA San Andreas. The game is filled with gangsters and serial killers who want to stake their claims. So, it is not surprising to see a mass grave in the game.
It was initially rumored that some of the rocks of the desert were actually body bags. However, it was later clarified that the location which the rumor claimed actually doesn’t exist, but the body bags definitely do.
5. Illuminati-style diagram on Mount Chiliad in GTA 5
When the gameplay demo of GTA 5 was released, fans were curious to know what actually was at the top of Mt. Chilliad. The isolated shed was a topic of discussion among the fans until the game was finally released.
A lot of players thought that the shed might have a jetpack which would be quite interesting to use in the game. However, when the players reached the top of Mt. Chilliad and went to the shed they found an eerie drawing instead.
The scribbled drawing looked like a Illuminati map with a human figure, an egg, and an X painted in red and a UFO in the center of it. It is still not confirmed what this map suggests, so, it is now called the ‘Mt. Chilliad Mystery’.
6. The UFOs of GTA 5
There was an argument in GTA 5 whether UFOs existed or not. As we mentioned above, the map at Mt. Chilliad had a drawing of a UFO in the center. This gave birth to the rumor that UFOs definitely exist in the popular Rockstar game.
However, all the discussion ended when it was confirmed that there are actually four UFOs in GTA 5. They can be seen at four different locations after the game is 100 completed. You can find the first one in the government military base Fort Zancudo, while another one is over Sandy Shores, which is a small town.
The third UFO can be found at Mt. Chilliad’s peak and the fourth one is located over the ocean near Paleto Bay.
7. Ghost of Mt. Gordo in GTA 5
After UFOs, it now time for ghosts. There had been several claims from different players that they had spotted ghosts in various location in GTA 5. Most of these rumors, however, haven’t been proved yet except one, which can be found at Mt. Gordo in Los Santos.
When you visit Mt. Gordo in Los Santos, a rock with the word ‘JOCK’ scribbled on it can be found. The letters are written with some kind of a red substance which is definitely not spray paint, therefore it’s assumed to be blood.
When you stay at that location until 11 PM, a scary ghost woman can be seen. The woman, however, disappears when you try to get closer to her. In newspaper archives, it can be found out that during the late 70’s a woman named Jolene Cranley-Evans and her husband John ‘Jock’ Cranley died accidentally when they were on a hike. This is really creepy.
8. The message in the hatch at the bottom of the ocean in GTA 5
There were rumors that there is a hatch on the floor of the ocean in GTA 5 which can take us to an alternate reality. Although this sound really crazy, it was later proved that such a hatch definitely existed. However, we are not so sure about the alternate reality, though.
The existence of the hatch was proven when the several players took screenshots of the scene. However, players weren’t able to go near that hatch to find out what was inside because they were pushed back by the oceanic pressure.
Some players even used the invincibility mode to get closer to the hatch and managed to hear a message coming from inside that hatch which translates to ‘Dear God No’.
9. The controversy behind the original GTA was planned by Rockstar
Controversy and GTA are two things that go hand in hand. The entire GTA series had been controversial as various politicians, lawyers and even parents complained against it. These controversies, however, hasn’t affected the game at all and worked as a PR campaign instead.
The original GTA game drew the attention of politicians by adding debatable topics in it. The creators of the series, David Jones and Mike Dailly, on the other hand, claimed that Max Clifford, and English publicist who was later a convicted sex offender, was the main reason behind the controversy of the original GTA game.
Jones even added that Clifford explained how he would plan whom to target and how to play the game, which definitely paid off. This means that the whole controversy was designed by Rockstar themselves.
