Grand Theft Auto V Map is Only 8 Miles Long
So I headed to the southernmost point and added a marker to the northernmost.
What I saw was surprising. The entire map is only 8 game miles long! That's the same distance it takes me to travel across my small town of Beaverton, Oregon.
While this isn't a big deal since Rockstar made each mile about 1/50th it's actual size, it's still interesting. Not sure why they built it this way, but hey - I'm not a developer and am by no means in the business of criticizing Rockstar's ability to develop.
Still curious as to why they designed it this way.
