This thread is to discuss your feelings about the torture mission in GTA 5. I am not going to post what happens in the torture mission, nor am I going to post a video of it. Anyway, I just watched the torture mission as I have been seeing a lot of talk about it online. I can honestly say that it's pretty goddamn disturbing, even for a GTA game. I might even say it's more disturbing than the hot dog mission in GTA 2.
I think this has potential to spark a lot of controversy, maybe more so than the whole "killing animals" thing. While the torture isn't TOO over the top, I do feel that to some, it may be unsettling. Now, I have mixed feelings about whether this will spark controversy or not, considering 2 things:
- There was a torture mission in Spoiler, and while it wasn't as bad as GTA V's, it is still torture nonetheless. I am pretty sure this didn't cause any controversy, but don't quote me on that.
- Rockstar mixed seriousness, along with their humor in the scene. For example, when everything is said and done, Trevor makes the guy get into his truck, and the first thing he says is "safety first!" I feel they added this to make it seem less worse than it actually is.
Now, my question to you is this: What is your opinion (if you have seen it) on the torture mission, and do you think this may cause any problems toward Rockstar?
