GTA IV no friction mod footrace - part one

In this edition of PC Gamer Plays, we ever so slightly tweak GTA IV's car physics and challenge three editors to go for jogs through Liberty City. No long as they can dodge a maelstrom of frictionless automotive projectiles which scatter bloody ragdolls like confetti at the worst parade ever.

Part one features PC Gamer senior editor Evan Lahti's attempt - watch below to see if he can avoid becoming a road pancake and make it to the finish line, and check back all week for more installments, including outtakes and instructions on how to mod the game yourself.

Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Outtakes | How to Mod GTA IV

    Evan's biggest mistake was getting the police on him so early. Very entertained video, so close Evan!

    Evan's always pissing off the police. When will he learn?

    Damn, nice run... that was so awesome, I don't even know how you made it past where you fell off the top of the highway when the car hit the fence. That was brilliant
  • UberNoob - November 21, 2011 8:52 p.m.

    My god...poor cars...
  • oryanbelt - November 21, 2011 10 p.m.

    wow that was generally entertaining, to bad about the ending though

    awesome! Wish I could give this a try...I just need a decent pc now.
  • rxb - November 22, 2011 6:38 a.m.

    That was great, looking forward to the next run.
  • SaintPinto - November 22, 2011 6:49 a.m.

    That was hilarious! Funnier than most of the crap that goes viral on YouTube. I will definitely be tuning in for part 2 of that insanity.

    I never get tired of watching these GTA vids. Nice job.
  • InFeRnOg - November 22, 2011 8:33 a.m.

    That was thoroughly entertaining
  • Pyroco101 - November 22, 2011 1:50 p.m.

    For a little bit, a friend of mine actually streamed himself doing this, only on a motorcycle instead of running. Hilarious!
  • Jacko415 - November 22, 2011 2:39 p.m.

    Kinda late by a few years... but still funny.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - November 25, 2011 10:31 a.m.

    Such silliness is timeless.
  • Lovelost - November 22, 2011 3:39 p.m.

    I watched the second video first glad to have gone back and watched this too. this is hilarious.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - November 25, 2011 10:33 a.m.

    Hey, does this mod work in Multiplayer at all? It would be awesome to see if it did.
