Rockstar Games might have dabbled with roleplaying elements in the GTA games, but have never gone all the way through with the same. There have always been elements of roleplaying in the GTA franchise, such as in GTA: San Andreas. But this went as far as Rockstar have ever gone with respect to roleplaying in the entire franchise.
GTA: San Andreas included roleplaying elements such as the player having to maintain CJ's health by eating food, or going to the gym to maintain his physique.
The game added several RPG-like character stats, some of which were also seen in later games, such as:
- Lung Capacity
- Sex Appeal
- Driving Skill

The RP mod gives the player access to servers where he/she can engage in a more RPG-like game, along with other players. These servers are extremely immersive, and offer an in-depth level to roleplaying.
Although it can be daunting at the start, given the stringency of rules, over time, the feature becomes simpler and easier to grasp. Also, the level of strigency and amount of roleplay can differ from server to server.
Therefore, you should experiment with a number of servers to find the one whose style of game suits you the best.Published 08 Jul 2020, 12:21 IST
