Grand Theft Auto V roleplay has pretty much risen from the dead in recent weeks on Twitch thanks to some large streamers coming over to it. Some players, like Felix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel, think they are doing a better job than others at it.

If you’ve been on Twitch at all recently you’ll notice that Grand Theft Auto V is usually sitting near the top of the directory.

This is due to the re-emergence of GTA V roleplaying which has seen numerous big streamers such as Sodapoppin, Summit1G, Pokimane, TimTheTatman, Lirik, xQc and more others streaming it at any given moment.


These streamers all command thousands of viewers each time they go live no matter the game they are playing which is why GTA V is comfortably sitting with so many viewers any time a big streamer is live.

Twitch: summit1gSummit1G has become on of the biggest GTA RP players on Twitch.

Viewers have been critical of Summit’s RP style

Since this is many of these streamers’ first times with RP of any kind, there can be some growing pains. Streamers like Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar have taken some minor criticisms due to their ‘weak’ roleplaying – such as not creating stories for their characters or by treating the RP server as a session of normal GTA Online.

In a Reddit thread that claimed Summit doesn’t care if another streamer is harassed by his chat because of him, many viewers and critics condemned him for saying this.


“Summit has no character, no storyline, only does heist and races,” said one comment.

xQc, who also has some questionable moments while RPing, was looking through that thread when he shared some thoughts of his own about Summit’s roleplaying.

“I agree that Summit doesn’t really RP,” xQc said. “I love Summit but he doesn’t RP. Summit does GTA Online in an RP server with a voice changer.”

To be fair, Summit would probably agree with that as he is using the same voice changer he used when he played Sea of Thieves. 

Summit hasn’t found himself in trouble with the people who run NoPixel, the GTA RP server, so while his RP might not be the best, he doesn’t seem to be breaking any of their strict rules.
