GTA Streamer Quits Game After In-Game Jobs Become Too Much Like Real Work

A popular GTA 5 streamer has quit after the jobs he worked in-game started to feel too much like real work.

GTA 5 is still big business almost eight years after it was first released. That’s partly due to how creative its players have become during that time. One of the more inventive things GTA players have done with the game is create GTA RP. A world in which players attempt to live out ordinary lives. GTA RP takes place on private servers and players have specific roles and jobs to do.

Chance Morris, better known to his fans as Sodapoppin, is one of the more prominent names in the GTA RP community. However, Morris revealed recently that he will be stepping away from GTA RP for an unspecified amount of time. Morris’s passionate explanation as to why he is done with the game revolved around it becoming too much like real work.


“I’m taking a break. And I’m coming back when I feel like it. It’s too much… it’s f**king brutal. It’s just brutal,” Morris told his fans. The streamer does have a pretty full plate within his GTA RP community. His in-game character, named Kevin Whipaloo, is the manager of Burger Shot, Marlowe Vineyard, and the floor manager at the Diamond Resort and Casino.

Streaming is a full-time job for a lot of people, but when it starts to feel like a job it can suck all the fun out of the act, which eliminates the point. That sounds like what has happened here. If you’re waking up at the crack of dawn and dreading going to your virtual job as a manager of a fictional casino, then it’s probably time to reassess. Or, at the very least, take a step back and see if you miss it after time passes.

GTA RP is just a small section of the wider GTA Online community. A community that seems to simultaneously love what it has but also craves news about GTA 6. It will be fascinating to see what happens to GTA 5 once its replacement finally arrives. More than 140 million of us have bought a copy of the game at this point, making it the second best-selling game of all time. Not all of those people will be making the leap to the next chapter over the course of one weekend.

Josh has been gaming for as long as he can remember. That love began with a mild childhood addiction to the Sega Genesis, or Mega Drive since he lives in the UK. Back then, Sonic 2 quickly became his favorite game and as you might have guessed from his picture, the franchise has remained close to his heart ever since. Nowadays, he splits his time between his PS4 and his Switch and spends far too much time playing Fortnite. If you’re a fan of gaming, wrestling, and soccer, give him a follow on Twitter @BristolBeadz.
