*** If you've purchased The Hen House and you're hanging around Blaine County, you'll probably be asked to deliver a truckload of booze. The truck usually spawns in Harmony, the bar is in Paleto Bay, and the suggested GPS route is over steep, treacherous, terrain, which means you'll run down the seemingly-generous time limit very quickly trying to drive safe and avoid damaging the fragile truck. The odds are also pretty good you'll come across some Lost bikers on the way there; if you're spotted while playing as Trevor (or accidentally run them over, which is fairly easy to do), you'll instantly come under fire and probably lose the goods as a result, while driving slowly and staying behind them to avoid drawing their attention just runs down the clock even more. There are ''slightly'' less dangerous routes you can take (although they're longer), and if you're playing as Franklin, his BulletTime ability may help slow the clock down and allow you to avoid obstacles more easily, but otherwise, good luck collecting your meager $920 profit for that week.

*** The ground team has to navigate tight corridors while the lights are. Despite being pitch black, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the enemy guards have no problems pelting you with bullets from the first moment they possibly can.]] Normally it woulden't be so bad execpt the game pressures you to hurry in order to avoid the air team having to put up with too much resistance. The game also [[FakeDifficulty reduces the ammo count on the assault rifles and pistols to 120 for the duration of the heist]], two weapons that would be much more useful in the hallways they keep throwing you into than Sub-Machine Guns and shotguns, weapons you will most likely resort to due to bringing in your own ammo.

*** The nuclear barrels at least give you a good amount of money, and it's next to impossible to die in the sub. The mission to search for submarine parts only gives you $5 and requires a whole lot of scuba diving in [[OneHitKill shark]]-infested waters.

*** You could also have one character drive around in an armored personal vehicle while the other takes Avi away offroad, as all the police are paying attention to is the character on the road this makes it easier for the character with Avi to avoid detation long enough to lose the wanted level, or but this requires coordination and an expensive car, neither of witch the team might have.

Added DiffLines:

** Lazlow coming on to Tracey during the ''Fame or Shame'' audition mission, and some of the character's radio comments about his career, takes on a new perspective in the #MeToo era. That said, the character's comeuppance - [[spoiler: several times in the game, in fact]] - takes on HilariousInHindsight qualities as a result.

** While some players fault the game for focusing too much on multiplayer, there is no auguring about how popular GTA Online is. What's better than exploring a city and causing mayhem why doing it friends of course! As sucessfull and iconic as the GTA series is, no other installment can claim it was played by millions of people daily years after its release like it was an MMORPG.

Added DiffLines:

* FanPreferredCouple: Both Franklin and Trevor have the option of beginning a relationship with insane hitchhiker Ursula, however due to her "unique" personality, she and Trevor are the better fit.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The game has had a boatload of controversy, like most GTA games, but this time over accusations of promoting torture and misogyny. The former is an especially ludicrous charge as the game immediately talks about worthless torture is thereafter. The latter are also pretty nonsensical considering that the game goes out of its way to paint almost all individuals of either gender as the worst sort of caricature of stereotypical male/female behavior coupled with a borderline non-existant moral compass. Accusations against GTA 5 (or any GTA game, for that matter) specifically for being misogynist tend to backfire because they imply that in the eyes of those bringing them forward, contrary to the unflattering depictions of women, the equally unflattering depictions of men are [[AcceptableTargets in some way acceptable.]]

* CompleteMonster: ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist]]'': [[OmnicidalManiac Avon Hertz]] is a genius [[CorruptCorporateExecutive billionaire tech mogul]], inventor and "father" of the insane A.I. Cliffford, and the true [[BigBad main antagonist]] of the Doomsday Heist scenarios. Petty and egotistical to the extreme, Avon had his own vision for a perfect world. He sought to create a dystopia where all of mankind was replaced with sentient machines who worshiped him as God. He tricks the Online protagonists into feeding data to Cliffford under the guise of rooting out the Russian terrorist Bogdan, when he was actually using them to gain access to the United States defense grid. After trying to blow of the submarine the players and Bogdan are on, he reveals that he will use Cliffford to hack into missile systems throughout the world and unleash nuclear armageddon to completely wipe away humanity. Hiding out in an abandoned missile silo, Avon tried to use a nuclear warhead to wipe away San Andreas and buy time to allow Cliffford to hack into weapons systems around the world to unleash doomsday. While Avon and Cliffford are ultimately killed, his genocidal ambitions lifted him above all other villains in the franchise in terms of evil grandeur.

** "Derailed", a mission sometime before the Union Depository heist, has Trevor chasing a train in motorbike. Despite being a late game mission and no doubt brings GTA San Andreas players back bad memories of that one early game mission, the mission is far easier than that mission. Doesn't help it has Trevor's funny banter, awesome music, awesome setpieces, and one of the achievement being [[TakeThat 'Better than CJ']].

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One of the radio advertisements in the game is for a company that says it sells tiki torches that can be used if you need to form a [[TorchesAndPitchforks drunken mob]]. After the events of the summer of 2017, in which white supremacist groups carried tiki torches while marching in several cities around the US leading to riots in which multiple people died, it doesn't come across as nearly as funny or harmless a joke.

** After all these years, having the game mock VideoGame/CallOfDuty for DownloadableContent is hypocritical due to how focused on microtransactions GTA Online is.
