Easter eggs evolved: Why gamers spent 3-years-plus studying GTAV’s Mount Chiliad

Easter eggs evolved: Why gamers spent 3-years-plus studying GTAV’s Mount Chiliad

This unsolved mystery is a perfect artifact of communal sleuthing in the Reddit age. Just below the peak of Mount Chiliad, a huge mountain in the far north of San Andreas, a mysterious mural sits high atop a cliff face. It looks like a map of the mountain's interior—a network of tunnels that connect five small chambers and three large ones with what appear to be a UFO, an egg, and a jetpack within them.
