Gangs are often a key part in the stories of the Grand Theft Auto games, commonly, the protagonist will work for, or against, them at certain points in the storyline. They are often quite aggressive and will most likely attack the player if they use a weapon and/or attack them first. Gang's can also offer assistance during some missions, especially in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Notice all gangs in the series allow only one or two ethnicites. This doesn't mean that the gangs are racist or xenophobic to others just for their background. A good example would be Packie McReary (Irish American) in GTA IV and how he works with Niko Bellic (Yugoslavian).
