It was only a matter of time before two of the biggest cultural phenomena of the last decade collided. And, to be honest, it didn’t take very long at all. The morbidly fascinating Squid Game is quickly becoming one of Netflix’s most popular offerings. And it is thanks to the GTA Online roleplaying servers that people can now play Squid Game for themselves. It sure beats trying to replicate it in real life, anyway.

For the uninitiated, Squid Game sees a bunch of miserable people partake in wacky minigames or for a chance to win life changing sums of money, or be not-so-wackily whacked.

Red Light, Green Light is one such game - which has appeared in dedicated mod servers FiveM alongside a slew of others. The very same cash-or-death stakes await participants. As does the freaky giant doll that has become synonymous with the series.

But for fans of the show who wish to play Squid Game, but not *play *Squid Game, we’d recommend hopping on to GTA Online ASAP to get your fix.
