According to Kevin Roose of New York Magazine, there's a fun little game hidden away inside Grand Theft Auto V that lets you buy and sell stock. In some cases, if you own stock in a particular company and one of your missions has you kill the CEO, your stock will gain you quite the virtual cash without the SEC checking in on you.
If you're one of the estimated 15 million people who bought Grand Theft Auto V and have been playing it since it came out last week, you've probably spent a lot of time killing gang members, plotting jewelry-store heists, and rendezvousing at strip clubs.
I'm only 14 percent of the way through the game, but I've already found a feature that is way more fun than playing the actual missions. Namely, the stock-trading platform, which allows you to buy and sell stocks inside the game using virtual money to invest in made-up companies. It's one of the tons of mini-games within the game that has nothing to do with the main story line, but I'm already completely addicted.
