The 8-Bit Bastard team on YouTube has done Grand Theft Auto and The Sopranos fans a favor. Using Grand Theft Auto, 8-Bit Bastard was able to re-create the opening credits of The Sopranos. It's a cool, calm, and collected remake that subs Tony Soprano out for Michael de Santa. Unsurprisingly, the transition is more or less seamless. Aside from a few frames and differences in certain landmarks, Los Santos proves to be a fitting backdrop for David Chase's New Jersey.
For comparison's sake, you can watch the actual intro for The Sopranos below.
