GTA Online has finally had enough of all this newfangled "camera behind the car" action and is going back to the good old days of top-down racing. The incoming Tiny Racers mode is a nostalgic tribute to racing games like Codemaster's Micro Machines, pulling the camera way up and back to simulate the toy-scale thrills of the olden days.
This is a really clever way to put the impossibly high-flying track design of the Cunning Stunts update to new use. I love how the distant, blurry streets of Los Santos make the whole thing look like a miniature playset. It's also a subtle tribute to the early days of the Grand Theft Auto series, which exclusively used a top-down perspective before GTA 3 came along. You can start playing Tiny Racers when it arrives in GTA Online on Tuesday, April 25.
