Interesting article from a mother who explains
"By day I was exhausted from making small talk at baby groups, but at night I could escape to a life of violent crime and irresponsibility."
I think GTA and videogames does this for many of us. However, I thought it was unusual for a mother to do so or at least the perception is that it's mostly young, teenage males. I think it's great that a mother can enjoy some escapism in GTA. Makes me wonder about all the more unusual players out there that escape in Los Santos at night. Maybe school principles, vicars, lawyers and judges..
"It has luscious scenery and diverse wildlife. I have been eaten by a shark, swum with orcas and even found a humpback whale singing gently off toward the upper limits of the ocean. I also have my favourite places to find peace: a sea cave on the bottom right of the map and the quiet mountain stream just north of the city. GTA doesn’t just give you permission to be irresponsible, it gives you permission to rest."
I also think it's a great example that GTA is more than just "blowing sh*t up" as I've seen other members on here describe it. It can allow you to rest and more.
Thought I would share as it's an interesting read and the article was only published today.
