* AdamWesting: A minor example is the host of Non-Stop Pop referring to herself as "Cara with the eyebrows," voiced by Cara Delevigne.

* [[BannedInChina Banned In Australia]]: Averted on current gen, surprisingly enough, with the uncut game getting an R18+ rating. A mild example for next gen when the Australian branches of Target and Kmart[[note]]Both owned by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wesfarmers Wesfarmers]] (whose company policy bans R-Rated content anyway) and unrelated to the American chains[[/note]] both chose not to stock the game after an uproar caused by [[https://www.change.org/p/target-withdraw-grand-theft-auto-5-this-sickening-game-encourages-players-to-commit-sexual-violence-and-kill-women this petition,]] which claims that the game rewards players for committing acts of sexual violence against women (killing escorts after using their services, etc.)

** PC version. For around 9 months, ''GTA V'' was the Holy Grail and the forbidden fruit of PC gaming... until E3 2014.

** Vinewood Boulevard Radio was originally going to be "P.M.R", a 90's rock station similar to Radio X in San Andreas, and hosted by [[NineInchNails Trent Reznor]]. It was cut and replaced with the modern rock station we have in the final version, but this change seems to have been a late one as the P.M.R station logo is still in the game files.

* At a budget of $265 million, which includes marketing, ''GTA V'' beat out ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' as the most expensive video game ever created.
** Sales figures for release day are reported at over $800 million. Three days after release, sales exceeded $1 billion, making it the largest entertainment release in history.
* The Ill-Gotten Gains Update (Part 1) included luxury skins for certain weapons, but only for the enhanced version. The Assault Rifle gets the "Yusuf Amir Luxury Finish", which includes a red star on the magazine. While this may be unintentional, it could also be a homage to the weapon's design being based on the real-life AK-47, a gun that originated from the Soviet Union, which was often associated with the color red and the star shape.

** Before ''Grand Theft Auto V'' was originally released on the PS3 and Xbox 360, Rockstar specifically said that it would not be released on next-gen consoles. Come E3 2014, and GTA V was announced for both consoles, with so many improvements, additions, and enhancements that many agree that the next-gen versions are the true version of the game. This wasn't a surprise to most people however, because most [[GenreSavvy assumed that this trope was in effect]].

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Jimmy, Michael's son, is voiced by and modeled after Danny Tamberelli. You might remember him as little Pete on ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete'' or Arnold from ''[[Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus The Magic School Bus]]''.
*** If that doesn't do it for you, he was part of the ''Series/AllThat'' cast once upon a time.
** Five years before the events of the game, Steve Haines was [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheBalladOfGayTony the doorman of Hercules]]. And in a past life, he was [[VideoGame/RedDeadRevolver Red Harlow]].
** Creator/LiamOBrien voices several radio advertisements using a voice reminiscent of [[Anime/CodeGeass Lloyd Asplund]].
** Creator/JimCummings makes his first ''GTA'' appearance as a radio announcer, an [=AmmuNation=] clerk, a police officer and an Australian-accented friend of Dom's; Bill Ratner ([[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero Flint]] and a frequent TV station announcer) also does a couple of radio spots, as does another TV station VO, [[http://www.ericgordon.com Eric Gordon]].
** Denise Clinton is voiced by Janet Hubert, who you may remember as [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Vivian Banks]] ([[TheOtherDarrin in the first three seasons, anyway]]).
** ''GTA V'' continues the tradition of hiring well-known musicians and personalities to provide voiceovers for the in-game radio stations. The fact that ''GTA V'' does ''not'' come with a printed list of game credits (unlike ''GTA IV'' and earlier games) increases the surprise as players generally won't know who is on what radio station until they either pull a GuideDangIt or read the credits at the end of the game.
*** Creator/PamGrier (as "Mama G") is the DJ of Lowdown FM
*** Kenny Loggins [=DJs=] Los Santos Rock Radio
*** Bootsy Collins is the DJ of Space 103.2
*** [[Music/BlackFlag Keith Morris]] is the DJ of Channel X
*** DJ Pooh does West Coast Classics
*** Cara Delevigne does Non-Stop Pop FM
*** Flying Lotus (AKA Captain Murphy) is the DJ of his own station, [=FlyLo=] FM.
*** On that same station, DavidFirth (creator of ''SaladFingers'') of all people can be heard.
** Like in ''IV'', several comic actors have their own shows on talk radio; of note is Danny [=McBride=] as Duane Earl on Blaine County Radio, and J.B. Smoove as Dr. Ray De Angelo Harris on WCTR.
