We recently took a look at a fan-made GTA Online playlist of created Jobs inspired by scenes from The Warriors and asked fans to share any Jobs they may have made in homage to favorite films or even our own games of yesteryear. For Rockstar fans feeling nostalgic, here’s a roundup of a few player-made Creator Jobs that came to our attention that have either been made in direct tribute to or are otherwise certainly reminiscent of classic Rockstar titles like Manhunt, Midnight Club, Smuggler’s Run and more. Check ‘em out and feel free to bookmark them for a play.
ALL EYES ON YOU
Carcer City by Zayvorne (Team Deathmatch)
By day, Textile City appears to be a colorful tapestry of fabrics and commerce. As darkness descends and the rain starts to fall, the lawless streets of this trader's square suddenly run red with bloodshed. Small arms weapons are gathered near the center of this map, but venturing further out to the eastern fringe you'll discover a few hidden surprises to aid you in putting on quite the show for viewers at home.
MANHUNT by staggeredguitar (Deathmatch)
Staggeredguitar invites players to "stab, bat and brutalize in this close quarters Manhunt style map". The narrow alleys and tight corners in downtown Rancho cement an unnerving atmosphere where you find yourself having to make careful choices about when and where to climb in pursuit of your prey. Touching down in someone's backyard, you may find yourself overrun by an enemy lying in wait or encounter a Molotov cocktail crashing down upon you, leaving no place to avoid the flames. If you enjoy this one, be sure to also check out Staggered's other Manhunt nods, MANHUNT (URBAN BEATDOWN) and MANHUNT (PIER PRESSURE).
DOWN & DIRTY
Smuggler's Run by Ackidapacki (Land Race)
“Drug smugglers are moving a larger shipment of product that has arrived in Paleto Bay. The thing is: the buyer is in Los Santos. First car there gets the payday of their lives.” There are four vehicle classes available for this endurance testing jaunt - Muscle, Off-Road, SUVs and Vans. While the Race begins on the smoothly paved west Highway 1 near Paleto Bay, things suddenly take a rural turn via a sharp left angle leading back into the Paleto Forest. Shooting straight up to the zigzags of the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, you'll find many opportunities to send an opponent spiraling off a hillside into an unforgiving ravine below. As you return to the civilization of Elysian Island and Banning you will literally smash through the gates towards the finish line but be mindful of the last few turns along the off-road trail in Rancho. You may be far from the northwest wilderness but you're just a sharp cut-off away from eating dirt.
Smuggler's Run by giftedhanz19 (Capture)
This dry and barren stretch of desert wedged between the West Vinewood Hills and the Zancudo River pits "two teams to fight over an already occupied bag of goods", per creator giftedhanz19. By "already occupied" he means you will be interrupting a transaction in progress and the local yokels will not take too kindly to two groups of interlopers invading from the northern and southern parts of the map. Use all manner of off-road vehicle to make your escape but avoid the open roads as that will make it far easier for greedy pursuers to close the distance and snatch back the goods you've stolen.
BRING THE PAYNE
Max Payne 3 by GroveSTHome (Team Deathmatch)
If you spent countless hours battling it out within the posh corporate hallways and spacious lobbies of Branco Headquarters or exchanging gunfire along the rooftops of Club Moderno in Max Payne 3, this Created Job located in the attractively modern and remote confines of the Kortz Center offers up some of the best elements from your favorite Bullet Time shooter. Whether you're posted up in one of the many exterior stairwells, doing strategic sweeps with the Buzzard Attack Chopper or creeping through the hedge maze you'll have more than enough ample opportunities to keep the blood flowing and the bullets flying.
Hold: Gang Wars by Hiroshio (Capture)
Also channeling the spirit of Max Payne 3 Multiplayer is a clever Capture by Creator Hiroshio, who seems to have a clear vision for this intense West Vinewood to Chamberlain Hills battle. Hiroshio states, "Your initiation into the gang consists of stealing. We've gotten word that multiple shipments of weapons and cash have been delivered. Steal these shipments and drop them off at our HQ. These shipments will be heavily guarded. Our gang members don't know you yet so they will shoot you on sight. Also beware of rival gang members. We're not the only ones who know about this." Los Santos may be quite a bit northwest of São Paulo but the challenging bag placement and vicious NPC Gang factions will make you start fiending for pain killers in no time.
ROCKSTAR SoCAL CLUB
Midnight Club by Geordieboy89 (Land Race)
This large circuit around the city, appropriately set in the dead of night, contains many strategic jumps and potential explosions. Starting out in centrally located La Mesa, you make your way east from Murietta Heights past several landmark locations and end up going as far south as Elysian Island, rounding the trek back to the finish line near Los Santos International Airport. The course itself is littered with wreckage and has a few ramps that are mandatory for clearance to the next checkpoint. For two decidedly different Race experiences, switch to motorbikes on your second playthrough and watch out for those unforgiving highway road signs.
Midnight Club by Licky106 (Land Race)
This pedal to the metal, tire tread destroyer starts out in Rockford Hills, cutting a seismic fault line through West Vinewood, Burton, Richman, GWC and will even turn a few snooty heads near the Golfing Society if you opt to run this course during the daylight hours. Along this circuit, you'll encounter no less than four deceptively placed, razor sharp right turns that are specifically designed to promote car-on-car collision. If you are approaching one of those said turns amongst an armada of fellow racers, it may behoove you to let them race ahead directly into the turn and then nimbly skate by the twisted pileup unscathed.
Bullworth by festivecave (Team Deathmatch)
It should come as no surprise that a Social Club member who is enrolled in the Bullworth Alumni Rockstar Crew would endeavor to recreate the campus hijinks of Bully in GTA Online. With the campus at the University of San Andreas Los Santos serving as the backdrop, you can duke it out with your most contentious classmates to prove who's the BMOC.
Bully by AVERIX72 (Deathmatch)
With plenty of melee weapons in plain view and only a few firearms scattered sparsely around this one, it'll be a recess-style mad dash to gain the upper hand in this chaotic DM. Lure opponents out to the center of the ULSA track-and-field stadium to show them the grass isn't the only thing getting mowed down today (you may also notice a cameo appearance from the Mower - a little nod to Jimmy Hopkins' many labored hours of detention).
If you’ve made or have come across any other fun homage Jobs whether based on a nostalgic Rockstar title, a favorite GTA mission or a classic film or TV show, share them with the community in the comments below – or send them our way directly to check out via mouthoff. GTA Online Creators can also feel free to tag #Throwback to your creation and we'll be looking at those in the future too to easily find and play them.

In honor of Valentine's Day, here's a little tribute to some of the classic romantics from across the roster of Rockstar titles - from roguish bachelors to Latin lovers to hormonal high schoolers. Weigh in on the poll to let us know your all-time favorite - or let us know in the comments section if your lothario of choice didn't make the cut.Niko Bellic (Grand Theft Auto IV)
From Eastern Europe with Love... Even though he puts most of his effort in trying to win over Kate, the maiden of the McReary clan, that doesn't stop Mr. Bellic from trolling the internet for tail.Jimmy Hopkins (Bully)
Now if he had spent as much time hitting the books...
At Bullworth Academy, Jimmy Hopkins certainly played the field. A serial flirt who moves between cliques with the greatest of ease.Carl Johnson (Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas)
Before the ladies were blowing up Niko's Badger in GTAIV, there was another preeminent GTA ladies man - Carl "CJ" Johnson from San Andreas.John Marston (Red Dead Redemption)
Up there as an all-time heartthrob, the ladies definitely seem to love cool John Marston. A rugged reformed outlaw and a truly loyal husband, during his epic quest, Marston is driven by a love for his family, and avoids the many temptations of the frontier. And when Abigail is turned into a flesh-eating zombie in Undead Nightmare, he does what any gentleman would - he ties her up and goes searching for the cure... Fernando Martinez (Grand Theft Auto Series)
The Romeo of the radio dial, Fernando Martinez got his start as a roving reporter during the heyday of Vice City's beloved power ballad station, Emotion 98.3 and has been a paragon of relationship advice for decades since.Max Payne (Max Payne Series)
Last but not least, lest we forget the softer side of Max Payne - hardboiled as he may be, he was not immune to the charms of Mona Sax in the series' sequel Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, dubbed "a film noir love story". Alas, quite lucky with a dual-weld automatic pistol - tragically unlucky in love.
