Ever since the release of GTA III and the Insane Stunt Bonuses that could be achieved by completing certain jumps, people have been wanting to perform bigger and bigger stunts. The late Odie helped things along with his great little stunt park mod, while the inclusion of motorcycles in Vice City propelled the scene forward leaps and bounds. I even made a couple of videos myself before stunting really got popular (by today's standards they are both absolutely awful, but show just how far stunting has come since then).
GTA V has been out for 6 weeks now, and this has been ample time for stunters to familiarise themselves with the map, find some cool spots, and get used to using and hopefully not abusing Franklin's special ability, or not even using it at all to really impress. A few early videos set the bar fairly low, and more recent videos are now coming out looking pretty impressive. Without further ado, here's a roundup of some of the first and best stunt videos that have been made so far.
First up we have couple of great videos that were emailed into us from the Nomad Union crew:
EXTREME GTA V CREW STUNTS - [Nomad Union]IGNITOR
EXTREME GTA V CREW STUNTS #2 - [Nomad Union]RAW
Next up is a stunt montage from Ben Buja, whose name you may recognise from his many GTA IV stunt and blooper reels:

This one is from Dejv, returning to the scene after a two year break:

We'd like to post about community creations like these more often. So if you've created a stunt video, or anything else cool using GTA V be sure to let us know about it and if we like it we'll include it in our next post.
