GTA San Andreas
ProLaps offers four kinds of helmets: the Boxing Helmet ($80), Full Face Helmet ($150), MotoX Helmet ($100), and Helmut ($100).
GTA IV and Ballad of Gay Tony
The Helmet is no longer a purchasable item. If the player gets on a motorcycle, the protagonist will automatically put a helmet on provided the player doesn't start driving immediately. Once the player gets off a motorcycle, the protagonist will discard the helmet. Some NPCs also have unique helmets, while others wear no helmet at all.
Helmets are purely cosmetic and offer no protection against crashes and the impact of bullets.
In The Lost and Damned, the player doesn't wear a helmet, due to the outlaw motorcycle gang theme of the game.

Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online
Helmets return and are used in the same way as in GTA IV and San Andreas. Like in GTA IV, helmets do not protect the player from crashes. In GTA Online, all players start with Trevor's Black Open-Face Helmet. During motorcycle races they will automaticly be wearing the last helmet they equipped (additional helmets can be purchased at a clothing/discount store).
