New this month Trivia: Derailed: There are three tasks that need to be completed in order to obtain a gold medal, as shown by the final summary at the end of the level - Mission Time, Fastest Speed and Better Than CJ. The task "Better Than CJ" is a reference to the mission Wrong Side of the Tracks from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, where the main character CJ was driving along the side of a train on a motorbike.

New this month Trivia: Hood Safari: When Franklin, Trevor and Lamar are approaching Grove Street, three men who bear a resemblance to CJ, Ryder and Sweet from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, can be seen driving away from the cul-de-sac in bikes. This is a reference to the mission Sweet and Kendl from GTA: San Andreas in which they have to ride bikes to evade a gang.

Trivia: When the last heist is unlocked and you choose to do the subtle option, the mission carries out very similarly to the Italian Job. You have to modify cars to hold the required amount of weight in gold just like the movie. The difference is that instead of modifying Mini Coopers, you modify Bravado Gauntlets. Also towards the end of the heist, you have to drive the cars into trailers of semi trucks just like the movie.

New this month Trivia: Blitz Play: The heist mission bears many similarities to the opening heist scene from the movie Heat. To make sure the truck stops, Franklin rams into the truck, flipping it over onto its side, the same action that is done in Heat. An explosive is planted on the back door to blow the doors open, also done in Heat. They take the men inside the truck hostage and one of them says they have gone deaf due to the explosion, which also happens in Heat. Additionally, Franklin, Michael and Trevor all wear stylised masks to disguise themselves during the heist, much like the heist team wore hockey masks to disguise themselves in Heat.

Trivia: Right at the very end of the end credits, a patient document will appear from the office of Dr. Isiah Friedlander, Michael's therapist. The document gives an overall summary about what kind of player you have been throughout the game.

Trivia: Fresh Meat: When Trevor arrives at Franklin's house, he leaps over the fence, but ends up tripping on the fence and Franklin starts laughing. The moment where Trevor trips was never scripted. What happened was, when the scene was being filmed, the motion capture performer for Trevor, Steven Ogg was supposed to leap over the fence, but ended up tripping on the fence and the motion capture performer for Franklin, Shawn Fonteno broke out laughing. Trevor's rant at Franklin after this was then made up by Steven Ogg himself.
