While some GTA Online players are already looking forward to GTA 6, others are still trying to enjoy everything that Los Santos has to offer by nailing sick stunts, spending all of their hard-earned cash or driving around listening to Christmas music.
After all, if you don’t enjoy trying to predict what the next game’s map will look like, lack any hot takes regarding what or who it should include, and have given up on planning out your first playthrough, why not just try to appreciate the final stretch of GTA Online?
However, some players are seemingly taking this appreciation a little bit too far, having decided to finally reveal the in-game NPC crushes they’ve been secretly harbouring for years.
Do you secretly long for Lester Crest’s warm embrace?
These admissions are the subject of a recent thread on the GTA Online subreddit, which began with a post from Nascar-loving user DaleEarnshart, who kicked things off by saying: “Admit your secret GTA Crush. I'll go first, mine's Sindy (the bartender from the clubhouses added in the Bikers update).”
Their fellow players didn't take much convincing with some also having a thing for alcohol proprietors, leading bartenders from both the Vanilla Unicorn and the player’s yacht to be nominated.
Other users seemed to be united by having spent far too much time waiting for the game to load, with ratstickcharlie going for: “The girl on the loading screen drinking a drink on the beach.” and BeansOnA3 saying: “The girl on the loading screen that looks like she’s about to partake in a heist with the hat, gas mask and the pistol with the silencer.”
Some players are seemingly just suckers for a compliment, with user Notoriousmonk3y opting for: “The NPC that (says) ‘Your car is great!’” and LeTaureauDeFer going for their good buddy Pavel, though droobloo34 shared that they’re no longer on the latter train, saying: “I got over my crush on Pavel because the man's only love is his submarine.”
Meanwhile, the character who seemingly saw the most nominations throughout the thread was Diamond Casino manager Agatha Baker, with the players of GTA Online clearly finding killer business acumen to be a key trait of any potential partner.
