politically correct gta

These days you can't do anything without offending someone. Their will allways be someone who takes offense to the way you do things. Back in the day when people had common sense we'd just ignore their ignorant ass's. However in 2012 what i like to call '' The politically correct era'' Games like gta are basically screwed.

 

I can't see rockstar taking the risk or ''having the balls'' to do anything out of the ordinary. They will try and do everything and anything to avoid controversy which imo hurts the game a hell of alot. In the back of their mind they'll allways be thinking ''we cant do this'' ''That's to risky'' ''mums will complain'' ect ect.

 

Watch the IV trailer, than the V trailer. Is this only the beginning ? Niko sounds like a criminal. The V protag sounds like a school girl !

You're too cowardly to even take the heat for it from the people you troll, instead running to the moderators wasting our time with sh*t you started. GTFO.

Thats why those f*cking liberal soccer moms need to think twice about letting their children play the game. Nobody under the age of 15 should be exposed to a Grand Theft Auto game in my opinion.

17.

 

That's the age rating and if that was followed we wouldn't have so much problems. I don't want to hear from 12 year olds claiming how they can take the violence and stuff as the rules are rules. So, as long as video game violence gets into the hands of minors the less the adults get.

whatever, man. just let it be dozingoff.gif

 

there will never be a got damn day when people under the age of 17 will restrain their selves from playing games like GTA.

most parents don't even give a f*ck about the games their kids play anyways.

 

pointless argument.

I feel GTA V will push the envelope in certain areas. GTA IV took things a bit further with much more detailed sex with hookers, the full frontal male nudity in TLAD and drink driving.

 

When you look at R*'s latest installments RDR, LA Noire and MP3 all 3 games touch on certain themes/concepts most developers wouldn't dare.

 

GTA V will probably have themes we'll all think "did they just do that?". If Mexican drug cartels play any significant part in the story R* wont be able to portray them in a positive light if they want a realistic portrayal of them. Those bastards are sick. ph34r.gif

Maybe this is why Rockstar keeps moving toward cinema as an underlying influence in their games. Cinema can get away with anything, under the cover of artistic freedom and dramatic license.

 

Maybe they think if the cinema analogy holds up,they can wiggle out of lawsuits using that argument.

OP, no offense, but you sound like a pretentious 12 year old kid who just wants to say the n-word all day.

I don't have much desire to play as another John marston/Niko bellic character. I like them both however i'm over it. I can't go throw all that again. I play these games to take a break from the craziness that is real life.I don't want to listen to complaining when i'm just trying to relax.

 

I hope you guys are getting what i'm saying. I do want a great story and it should have it's sad moments but not throughout the entire game. We need a few happy times aswell this time imo. Depressing storylines are getting stale.

Oh bullsh*t. If rockstar was afraid of controversy they wouldn't have put so much alcoholism in Max Payne 3. Rockstar wouldn't take the controversial stuff out of their series unless someone broke in with a gun and threatened them to. And that's not going to happen. Hell, they rely on controversy for most of their sales. They have ever since the first GTA. There's no f*cking way they're going to submit to parents groups at this point, especially after the recent failure of the California game ban.

R* owns one of the most sold games in the gaming history. They can kill a crippled negro pregnant transgender creature riding a rainbow pony in the first cutscene, sell millions of copies and win all the cases filed against them.

 

It happened before, it will happen again.

True.

 

Why call this the "politically correct" era? Back in the early 2000s you could offend people much more easily. Nowadays Dave Chapelle and Daniel Tosh tell all sorts of racist jokes yet get away with it clear and cut. R* got away with nudity in L.A. Noire, so they probably will be able to get away with other things.

That's because Niko was nothing more than an uneducated thug. You don't need to sound like Niko to be capable of doing terrible things.

 

I think the penalties for parents who knowing allow under age kids to play games that are age restricted should be high. That way us adults who can understand the distinction between a fun game and real life can have a decent game.

f*ck the parents who complain. You got no one to blame but yourself. If you don't like your kids playing a game like GTA then don't buy it for them and if they do get it themselves then take it off them!

Judging from the V trailer it almost looks like they have their controversial(ish) sense of humor back with things like the "Speedophile 2000" jet ski. That was actually the thing that got me the most excited. IV was great but it was far too serious for me and lacked that sense of fun previous titles had. Hopefully we'll see the likes of Pro Laps return too.

 

In terms of out right controversy, I don't know how much further they can push it. The most controversial thing in SA was a feature that got removed in the first place. I supose taking drugs might push things further I guess, but that really depends on the Housers' take on drugs, every GTA game has always been almost against drugs.

In this country the game is restricted to 18 and over and it is enforced, so if you're not 18, you can't buy it yourself.

 

I believe that entitles those of us that are of age, to a game free of soccer mummified watered down content.

there was a giant cock in TLAD and there was a pair of fat tits in RDR... why would they start holding back now? GTAV should make Eddie Low seem like a nice man.

Thing is though it's taken cinema a long, LONG time to get to that point and for film makers, they know there's certain things still off limits and films that need to be cut to be re rated however. Making a film isn't a blanket license to include everything and use the artistic argument, the censors can and do tell studios to remove some things or tone some things down.

 

Let's say a lawsuit happens, I can't see a judge or a jury or whatever confusing a video game with a movie, This point's already been brought up several times in several game/violence lawsuits before and keeps cropping up, a game is not a movie.

 

Why? Interactivity. You sit down at a cinema, you watch. It's a passive thing. A game, you are actively taking part.

Yeah, if anything Rockstar's games have gotten progressively edgier as we move further into the 'Politically Correct Era'. One thing you perhaps have forgotten is in TBOGT when there's the guy's head in the burger box. That was pretty grisly, definitely the most graphic thing I've seen in a GTA game.

 

I wouldn't worry about anything.

If anything I'd say R* are definitely more bold. I mean people go on about Hot Coffee, but it was never intended to be in the game.

 

With more games pushing cinematics I believe R* will only go further. I'm just waiting to see a cutscene where someone gets decapitated or something.

 

Better yet Manhunt 3.

Don't let the narrators slightly optimistic tone fool you, infact I think he will be quite a sociopath. He seems way too calm about his plans for having a "normal" life not working out almost like he was waiting for any excuse to jump back into the criminal lifestyle.

 

I think these days they're going a bit easier on R*, heres a few examples.

 

-In RDR there was a slightly graphic sex scene(much worse than anything in tbogt)

-TLAD had tom stubb's little stub

-MP3 has a brothel where you see tits left right and center aswell as people either having sex or dry humping in "private" rooms

Why? Since when has Rockstar tried to avoid controversy? Controversy has sold thousands of copies of GTA and had made the brand known to billions of people, especially non-gamers. It's honestly good for them.

That's pretty much exactly the way I see it, they're just gonna avoid the controversey as much as they can. A group of soccers moms bitching normally shouldn't be much of a threat, but these days with the facebook, twitter and youtube access things can get blown out of proportion and quickly. Staying on this path I believe GTA'S days are numbered. Without the controversy it just isn't GTA.

The generation of people on Facebook, Twitter are the GTA playing generation, not the types of people to be offended by stuff in a video game. What kind of controversy to you think Rockstar is trying to avoid? Hasn't GTA basically done everything already apart from allowing you to mow down children? Looks like GTA V will have animals, so that's the next big thing probably.

Movies are the same, compare a 50s movie with a movie from 2012, a lot has changed.

 

It's not about what they can get away with, it's what society deems okay. For instance in movies from the 50s (and Mafia 2) everyone smokd as at the time it was advertized as good for you. Now in 2012 smoking is up there with child killing or cop killing as one of the worst things you can do.

 

R* can't touch some subjects however, they are and (I think) will always be off limits.

 

Children are the obvious one, they couldn't (for a very, very extreme example that won't ever happen) include child pornography in their games at all or adults abusing children even in a satirical way, it would be too much controversy for them. Remember, there's only been a small handful of children in GTA and one in a cutscene and noen in actual gameplay.

 

Other things are just as taboo however, you wouldn't show (again, a very extreme example) a 9/11 recreation on the in-game TV or the Danish cartoons as an easter egg.

How exactly are Rockstar succumbing to political correctness? RDR, LA N and MP3 all depicted breasts, full frontal male and female nudity were featured in TLaD and LA N respectively, drug use has been depicted excessively in a lot of their games (GTA CW even let you buy and sell them), f*cks ni**ers and c*nts are thrown around left, right and centre, the prostitute options in GTA IV were much more advanced than the "rocking car" from previous titles, the sex scenes in TBoGT were even more raunchy than that, and the gore in LA N and MP 3 is much more bloody than anything seen in GTA.

 

What areas are Rockstar holding back in?

F*ck political correctness. It is vile liberalism at it's worst and should never be tolerated. And I don't think R* care anyway. They have put some pretty racist things in their games, not to mention all the other edgy stuff.
