...media and politicians begin to sh*t a brick over GTA4???? It's obviously inevitable. The only public figure who's even bothered dealing with it so far is Jack Thompson.

The week before and many weeks after release. Seems like the most probable time - with advertising campaigns in full swing and people lining up at larger locations to gain attention from whomever.

Sorry, but Grand Theft Auto is tame by today's standards. That doesn't mean it's not fun. I'm sure there will be a protest or two, and some experts will go on talk shows, but nothing like the hot coffee debacle.

The Hot Coffee incident only gave the media more ammo but the media already slammed the game. All the news coverage is tilted towards convincing the viewers that GTA is basically a murder simulator that people take literally (like FoxNews trying to convince parents that Mass Effect is a porn simulator). The thing that makes this worse is that each time a new GTA comes out, both the left-wing P.C. crowd and right-wing Jesus freak crowd spread stupid lies about it.

 

this isn't going to lead to a ban or anything like that. I kinda find the fake outrage amusing.

No offence but is the American media just full of scaremongering cockbags?

Hm, so some of the most realistic depictions of cops, firefighters, EMT personal, etc. being murdered and then someone being sexually assaulted with a weapon is tame by todays standards?

 

Think again, buddy.

Yes. Most of the media.

The other half just focuses on big issues, like what's happening with Paris Hilton, or if Ashley Simpson is pregnant or not.

 

We've got "entertainment media" coverage, and then we've got scaremongering cockbags.

 

Luckily, we've also got Jon Stewart's Daily Show to keep us alive. And the Colbert Report.

+10 awesome points for watching those kick ass shows.

I'd say somewhere around May 3rd, you'll see news stories like "will GTA4 turn your kid into a spree killer?". Then, they'll cart out thses so-called f*cking experts to act like they understand GTA4 when they've never even played a video game since Pong came out.

Fox news isn't news, that network/channel/ or whatever you call it... it takes the piss. Look at o'reilly calling everyone 'pinheads' while he infact is the pinhead.

the media can say what they want about GTA, it wont harm it at all. All the kids who do stupid stuff and blame GTA are just trying to get out of the trouble and people are too stupid to know if they should buy GTA or let their kids play it.

The funny thing about Bill O'reilly is that both the Left and the Right mock him. There's a very popular right-wing talk show host over here who calls him the "Leper-con" and the "Loofa man" (check wikipedia if you're confused by that one).

yeah, funny that some parents/kids blame GTA for doing some terrible stuff. If they have the balls to cap some people in the head, then they (kids,adultes who did the actions) should and must have the balls to take all the blame also. Yet the US politicians don't realize that the current gun laws are a pile of sh*t, No one, kid or adult, should be able to buy guns, in any way.

Just my thought.

I'm sorry have you ever watched CNN world news in your life? I mean most of the stuff they show on there is way worse then GTA! Most of the stuff they show in rated R movies these days is way worse! So yeah it is pretty tame. mercie_blink.gif

Really??? That's pretty out there. The current gun laws are just fine. The only thing that should be changed is a better vetting system when people get their gun permit.

i agree with ya, Rambone. why should we willingly give up a right that's supposed to be guaranteed to us?

 

pfft yeah, guns kill people like fast food makes people fat. or maybe like GTA kills people? sarcasm.gif what ever happened to responsibility?

I believe that Rockstar are gonna get a lot of problems when some crazy person attack a saxophone player, group of yoga people at the park or some homeless people warming their hands over an oil barrel.

 

This game is so hated and so many people watch it and "connect" it to the news. Somewhere and at some time someone is gonna kill a hobo and maybe even a saxophone player and then the sh*t will hit the fan!

Unfortunatly some people have problems, some youth out there, bored and full of Whopper, are gonna f*ck up people that belong to the above mentioned categories.

i hate those assholes that complain about video games. those retarded f*cks care more about virtual stuff then whats really going on in the streets. they protest violent video games, but they dont protest about a woman raped or a man killed ?? hmmm, strange. games have ratings. if someone aint mature enough then he shouldnt play, its the parents' fault that they bout those games for a 10 year old and he didnt understand right and wrong or real and fake, not the ones that made the game.

lol i have been waiting for GMA to say something like..."violence in video games...could they be connected to school shootings. The new grand theft auto 4 is coming april 29 and analyst research violent video games and youth violence." i can't wait to see the headlines.

what would a gta game be without jack thompson and his friends trying to sue rockstar and take2?

Christ it anoys me so much those assholes blame games for all sorts of sh*t, (luckily not as much as a couple of years ago) when there is like over 1000 times as many violent movies, books etc.

With a bit of luck they will actually use a screenshot of GTA4 when covering it. Usually they just use the same recycled Vice City image.

Nah. They'll probably use the same footage of VC and STILL incorrectly call it GTA4.

 

I always loved this ol' gem...

 

"Did you know that you can kill hookers in this game?"

 

or

 

"You get points and rewards for killing cops"

I just hope there isnt any killings after the release because you KNOW some idiot polly is gonna say its related to GTA4. A few good kids are not going to play it because of what some overprotective and ignorant mother does to say their kid cant play it because of the killings.

You can thank capitalism for foiling the religious's plans for world domination.

They can try and stop the GTA Beast, but thats like Hotel California, stab it with its eely knives but they just couldn't kill the beast.

 

If any religious people are reading these boards scared out of their f*cking minds, run bitch, this is the end times, and I'm the anti-christ.

uhhh right well u can go to hell...anyway i am religious and my mom is highly religious and she lets me play GTA all of them and she knows everything about the game too (paying/killing hookers/ killing people. theft of money and cars)....so i guess u misjudged some of thereligious people.
