It's been two months since Rockstar Games released the second official trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5. The trailer was so well put together that even today I don't get tired of watching it. Rockstar has a way of creating trailers — whether it's the production value or the movie-like quality — that make them fun and entertaining to watch. That could also be why fan-created trailers are even more entertaining.
The latest comes from YouTuber, KETEGANO15, who recreated the entire GTA 5 trailer — shot for shot — using Battlefield 3 footage. The remade trailer is entirely composed of BF3 footage using in-game vehicles and animations. Best of all, it matches up pretty well. Battlefield 3's maps do a surprisingly good job of mimicking the various GTA 5 locales.
I think what always amazes me in these fan-created trailers is just how much time goes into it. The dedication that gamers have is something truly remarkable which is why I enjoy posting about these type of things. If you have a user-created video relating to video games feel free to email me the link and I'll see if I can post it.
Check out the real GTA 5 trailer below and then the YouTube video below it to see how it stacks up.
GTA 5 is due out in spring 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
