A modder called Downsider has created a mod for GTA V that allows him to play the game on his HTC Vive, rendering the game in first-person and using his Vive controller as a gun. This allows the game to  be played with motion tracked controls and allows the player to duck and shoot from behind cover with ease. 

The Mod, currently called "GTA V-ive", is still in development, but gives an interesting look into the potential of games like GTA in a motion tracked VR environment. 

Right now the movement in the game can be achieved by moving around your room manually or by using a secondary function on your weapon to shoot and teleport to a defined location. Movement will certainly be a huge challenge for a lot of VR games moving forward, as motion without physical movement can cause discomfort for some VR users.
