Boardwalk Empire opening faithfully recreated in GTA 5 is rather great 

American period crime drama Boardwalk Empire has had its intro scene recreated in GTA 5, and it's a rather faithful rendition.

The HBO series is set in Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition era and stars Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson.

YouTube channel 8-BIT BASTARD created the opening scene in GTA 5 and has also posted a side-by-side video for comparison purposes.

8-BIT BASTARD created the video using "the snapmatic camera to reenact these movie scenes" and you can view more of these recreations through YouTube. My favorite is the Game of Thrones intro.
