In its 24-year existence, Rockstar Games' "Grand Theft Auto" series has seen its fair share of crime. Many people play "Grand Theft Auto V" because it only takes a second to wreak havoc on the streets of Los Santos. But have you ever considered playing the game without ever breaking the law?

That's exactly what Redditor TK-57 attempted to do in a recent experiment. They attempted to complete the game without killing any NPCs.

It turns out that this isn't possible, as the GTA V plot still requires players to kill 726 in-game characters. ScreenRant said Franklin leads the carnage with 295 kills. Trevor followed with 258 kills. On the other hand, Michael is the game's most peaceful character, as his plot has him killing only 172 enemies.

There's also a kill the three of them do together as they drive Devin Weston off a cliff. But attempting a pacifist run in GTA V is nearly impossible because you still have to kill over 700 NPCs no matter how hard you try.

Suppose you're curious about how the experiment was carried out, the Redditor claims that all missions were carried out in stealth mode if one was available. There were no people hit, and there were no needless police chases.

Is "Grand Theft Auto V" a violent game as a result of these figures? Probably not. Players still love GTA for being as violent and high-octane as possible. However, U.S. lawmakers recently called for a ban on "Grand Theft Auto." They argued that the number of carjackings in the Chicago area increased, in part because young people were exploring the world of crime and illegality through video games.

"Grand Theft Auto and other violent video games are getting in the minds of our young people and perpetuating the normalcy of carjacking," Democratic State Rep. Marcus Evans said earlier this year.

Although no decision has been taken in this regard, Rockstar is already hard at work on the next Grand Theft Auto game. According to sources close to the project, it could debut in 2022 at the earliest.

'GTA 5' has also been one of the most successful games of the modern generation since its release eight years ago. It's so famous that people still play it regularly. Every 24 hours, 'GTA 5' players reach a high of over 145,000, according to SteamCharts.com.
