The GTA franchise has made a habit out of putting out cultural landmarks in gaming, whether it is revolutionizing a genre with GTA III or setting new standards for attention-to-detail with GTA V.

In terms of game length and play-time, GTA V can offer more than 80 hours of gameplay if the player decides to indeed cross off every item on the checklist. While it would later be eclipsed by even more expansive RPG games like The Witcher 3, GTA V remains a massive game in every sense.

The player, post-completion of the story, can still spend hours chasing that elusive Platinum trophy and completing all the Side Missions and Activities required to 100 percent the game.

Here is a brief rundown for everything a player must do to 100 percent GTA V.

GTA 5 100 Percent Checklist

Missions include the 69 Story Missions, which are relatively easy to complete and shouldn't take too much time. Essentially, playing through the story will complete the 69 missions. This is, by far, the easiest part of the GTA 5 100 Percent Checklist.

The rest of the checklist gets progressively more obscure and somewhat tedious.

Strangers and Freaks

There are a total of 20 Strangers and Freaks missions split between the three characters. All of them are unique to each character, and the player must complete them to cross this off the checklist.

These appear as "?" on the map, and the color of the question mark will indicate which character can complete the mission: Blue for Michael, Orange for Trevor, Green for Franklin.
