Grand Theft Auto is an action-adventure video game series developed By Rockstar North and created by David Jones and Mike Dailly. While it's really good, sadly, it has a toxic fandom and hatedom.

Why They're WASTED


  1. Neither its fans nor haters take criticism well when it comes to bashing on critics.


  1. They praise Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as the best video games of all time. They also exalt the characters Johnny Klebitz and Big Smoke to annoying levels.
  2. They are also part of the hatedoms for Mario (sometimes), Nintendo, American videogames, Pokémon, and the ones for games with E ratings.
  3. They wasted The Meme Community with a lot of memes including content from the Grand Thet Auto franchise, especially Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
  4. They always complain about when Grand Theft Auto VI will come out.
  5. Many are teenagers and manchildren who try to look cool by playing the series.
    • GTA Online is where they are at their worst.
  6. A lot of people praise GTA IV because it's an older game and bash on anyone who likes GTA V, when in fact, IV has a number of flaws too.
  7. They get into flame wars with the Call Of Duty Fandom And always argue if GTA or COD is better.
  8. Most of them come from either the Sony Interactive Entertainment Fandom or the PC Gaming Elitists.
  9. Some adore Johnny Klebitz like if he was a religious figure.
  10. They are part of the Rockstar Games Fandom for obvious reasons.


  1. It is filled with Moral Guardians and soccermoms just because the games are very violent and inappropriate for children.
  2. Few come from the Call of Duty or the Nintendo fandoms.
    • Hypocrisy is present here; some are Nintendo fans despite the fact that some Grand Theft Auto titles are on Nintendo consoles as well.
  3. They hate David Jones and Mike Dailly for creating the franchise in the first place.
  4. They are sometimes part of TheTopTens.
