Player-created Mini-Games (not actually in the game)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When was the last time you played a mini-game in GTAO? 

Whether it's Golf, Darts, or Arm Wrestling?

Looking back through the franchise history, there's so many mini-games that were excluded in GTAO, which have been discussed on this formum.
Ambulance and Police missions, Dance mini-games, arcade games, and more.

For me, when I log on, I just don't have the patience to join a game of Golf.
And Arm Wrestling seems to be unbalanced as to who wins.

So, what I do is to create my own mini-games. Things that are achievable without being yanked out of the game's immersion, yet which are fun enough to play for 20 minutes to an hour.

For example, one game I play is "Knock the Coffee Cups Out the NPCs Hand." You basically bump into any NPC carrying a coffee cup and get them to drop it without getting a wanted level. My record is about 20-something, at this point.

Another is "Play Ball," where you go up into the rural areas and find one of those  "BIG" orange balls and try to bring it to a specific location, like the city, the airport, or the beach. It's actually a lot of fun, a good challenge, and when people in the game catch on, then everyone goes after the ball.

A similar game is "Kick the Can," where you find a blue dumpster and push it around the map. These are also great because you can use them with a Bati or Ruffian to jump over and get to rooftops and difficult-to-reach locations.

Lastly, and one of my favorites, is "Truck Hunting," where you find a random 18-wheeler, cement truck, or similar, and shoot the tires out. Then, follow them to see where they go. If the driver jumps out and runs away scared, you lose!

What about you? Are there any silly games you play when you're either alone in a lobby or just tooling around by yourself that keep you busy and make you happy?

I'd definitely be interested to try some new things! Thanks and cheers!

Pushing the big orange ball around is always fun, but is there a way to keep it from de-spawning after awhile?

Me and my friends go to the airfield in Sandy Shores and two of us go to each side of the Runways with bikes and melee weapons, then we drive into each other and see who knocks the other one off the bike.

We had multiple variants of this, one time we decided to free-aim it and use shotguns on the fastest bikes.

Funniest one was attaching a sticky bomb into the front of the bikes and we see which one of us has the best aim and be able to shoot the sticky bomb and kill the other.

You have to keep it in view. I've gotten it all the way to the amphitheater only to have it despawn by turning around for a split second. grrr! ;)

Exactly why we need jousting spears in GTAO!!

Hit a jet sh*thead with one explosive sniper round and watch them sweat while I carry on.

Demolition Derby in the farmlands of Grapeseed. Grab the first car you see and smash it till it dies or blows up. First one with a dead car loses. 

 

Whacking pedestrians with  melee weapons while riding a motorcycle.

 

Pedestrian Dominos where I go up to a group of npcs, push one over and try to knock the rest of them down. 

 

Mountaintop Atomizing, where me and a friend will go up to Mt. Chiliad and shoot each other with the atomizer gun.

Another fun topic @fw3 Buddy and I used to race BMX bikes down the freeway on the wrong side of the road to Pelato Bay. Or try and use those big orange balls to kill each other. Those mini games which we used to do when we had a session split or end up in a empty session. Oh man good times.

A mini game i always play with randoms is called lowrider meet, yes that one in SA, the ones where you bounce lowriders with some music, but it's getting harder lately with the oppresor mkII been flying round the town

 

Another minigame i used to play with randoms is a canyon duel where i drive my car and tail others while trying to overtake them it's pvp i know but it's fun and easy to play with others especially the car enthusiast that i met randomly in game 😁

A mini-game I like playing solo is (oddly), driving normally. It allows me to relax and take in my surroundings. Only yesterday, in the 5 years I have been playing, was the first time ever I had driven on a tiny street in Los Santos where I had never been before!

Between heists, we play "Freeway" (old Atari game) on a regular basis. Three players, one gamemaster (usually the host). Three players stand in line at a highway, gamemaster gives start signal/shot and we try to pass the roads without looking left or ride. Winner/survivor can choose his/her role in next setup ;)

 

Spoiler

 

great topic as usual, @fw3

Thank you, @Cackling Jack! And yes!!! I love taking out the bicycles, but honestly, I forget they're even in the game!
Since they are treated as personal vehicles ("your vehicle has been returned to your garage"), it would nice if we could call for them and have them delivered, like any other PV.

Thank you, @Mrs. Buzz! This is a great idea and would be really fun to play with friends.

Also, I still remember when the original Atari 2600 came out. They released Frogger, which would be an awesome mini-game for GTAO!!

I played a mini game a while ago with friends, we use to call it "Gib car to friends"

It was rewarding cause u got a car at the end. You had to do a series of steps such as going to your garage stand next to bike press left at the same time joining friend on a mission to cancel, if you won you got a new car!!!  😮 :D:p

Have you tried Sandy Survival with the Up-N-Atomizer? Make up the rules and just have fun. Pistols only, see how long you can survive. Watching NPC characters bounce over vehicles and land on top of building is such good fun.

 

All my ammo was wiped, again, for some buggy reason? So, instead of whinging about it and forking out 100k, I recouped some of it doing survivals. Then I realised how much fun I was having just chilling out in my own time, RELAXING, not competing/battling or paying freemode fees every 48 minutes. This game can be so stressful for multiple reasons, especially the need to earn zillions of dollars for whatever Rockstar throws at us, but at the same time you CAN chill out, earn a little bit of cash/ammo AND accrue bunker/nightclub income in the background.

I definitely have to try this! In fact, I don't use the Alien weapons nearly enough. I still go with old standby's. Thx @Jenkiiii

Another game I like to play is to take obscure Pegasus vehicles over the basic, in-game Stunt Jumps and to the skate parks.
It's silly fun, but it's fun, nonetheless! lol!

Nothing like taking a Dump at a skate park. Seriously. :)

Alien Hockey

1. Get 3-5 other players.

2. Go to Sandy Shores Airfield.

3. Set up the largest vehicles you can at the hangar bay door and just before the fork in the airstrip. These are your goal lines.

4. Place armored vehicle in the center.

5. Split into two even teams (odd player out is the ref) and everybody equips the Up n' Atom.

6. Take aim at the armored vehicle and try to blast it against the opposing team's goal.

Whoa! Great idea. Now I just need to find 3-5 other players :(
