I saw a movie not long ago with that beach setting and the ferris wheel.  All I could think of was GTA.
You're referring to Santa Monica Pier.  I feel like I saw a movie that showed this too, just recently.  It's killing me that I can't remember what it is.  Then again, L.A. is used for the setting of tons of movies and I'm sure Santa Monica Pier is in a decent portion of them.

I have fond memories spending time with my first girlfriend there. I don't remember how the real one compares to the GTA version, though. It was a long-ass time ago.

I visited it twice in the last few years.  One thing I found remarkable: the quiet, even with hundreds of people.  West coast people are way less rambunctious and loud that East coasters.

This is probably one of the reasons you never ever meet someone from California here.

West Coast - East Coast mentality is really interesting to think about either American or Canadian (to be fair, actual east coast in Canada, such as Nova Scotia and PEI is a lot more similar to the West Coast mentality, while Ontario lines up more with the New York mentality a bit). I was born in Toronto, raised in Vancouver but spent a lot of time back east up until early adulthood.  I'm pretty sure you could drop me in a random town north or south of the 49th Parallel and I could tell you which coast I was on without landmarks or accents. I guess that's true when you're talking about any two areas separated by that great of a geographical distance though.

Aaaaaanyways, I have really good memories of Santa Monica Pier.

EGMNow -> GTA V: GTARPG Mod released.

Quote
Are you a big fan of Grand Theft Auto V? Are you a big fan of RPGs? Now, thanks to a mod, you can have them both—in the same game.

GTA V already has a few RPG elements, such as the ability to level stamina and driving skills, but GTA: RPG, a mod for the PC version of Rockstar’s open world opus created by LogicSpawn, adds so much more.

Players can now roll a new character, choose a class, level up, and progress through skill trees. NPCs have dialogue trees and offer sidequests. And the inventory system seems to have been completely overhauled, with new menus and the ever-important RPG ability to loot the bodies of your enemies.

This might be the biggest "get" ever for the Epic Game Store.

One of the best selling games of all time in one of the biggest franchises of all time!

Rumor has it: GTA5 could be the next freebie for Epic Game Store starting tomorrow:

I picked this up when it was free on the Epic Game Store. This game is actually quite fun, and it still looks good and is graphically intensive when you max everything up (which is somewhat surprising considering how old the game is). I'm still quite early in the game but I am enjoying it.

Setting up the game was annoying though because you are required to be online and register for the Rockstar Social Club. Also, launching the game every time triggers Windows UAC, which is another oddity.
