The popularity of GTA 5 RP has reached new heights, with actors, musicians, and athletes all joining in on the craze.
While GTA 5 was released back in 2013, soon followed by its multiplayer variant, GTA Online, the game is constantly being updated with new content even in 2021. The recent big trend that has taken over the streaming community is GTA 5 RP, with famous athletes like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Travis Scott joining the community.

GTA Online roleplaying is usually done through specialized servers where players simulate virtual lives through a custom-made character. They decide the personality and backstory of the character and act out accordingly.
