8 years on, players will do no end of things to keep Grand Theft Auto 5 interesting. Whether that's taking part in new online heists or driving in traffic like a normal person, the one thing you can never avoid is killing.
As calculated by Redditor TK-576, they've just revealed that completing this adventure requires you to kill at least 726 people. Franklin is responsible for 295 deaths, Michael has a tally of 172, whilst Trevor executed 258 enemies, with one joint kill between all three.

They also followed GTA 5's Deathwish ending, which is admittedly the most violent option, but TK-576 admits this was done in "deference to canon".
