You’d never guess, but there are a number of tiny Twin Peaks references in Grand Theft Auto V. The fifteenth installment in the popular action-adventure video game series has a mission titled “Who Killed Leonora Johnson” (Leo + Laura, get it?) and there’s that peaceful place called Two Hoots Falls.
So Matthew Shezmen, one of our Italian readers, went location scouting in the open world of GTA 5 and, lo and behold, he found everything he needed to recreate the Twin Peaks opening titles using the built-in Rockstar Editor. Check it out in premiere here on Welcome to Twin Peaks!

Maybe it’s time to reconsider an official Twin Peaks video game?

I haven’t gotten to it yet (it’s sitting on my PS3 hard drive), but Deadly Premonition is supposedly *very* Twin Peaks-like, and the creators were obsessed with Twin Peaks. From what i’ve heard, it’s not perfect, but it’s a lot of fun.
Oh yes, I’ve played it three times now and I love it. It has a very Twin Peaks feel like you said. The graphics aren’t the best but the story is interesting and the game is really fun to play. Also, don’t let the beginning level fool/discourage you, the game gets much better after it.
