Grand Theft Auto Inspires Crime Spree, Man Wanted to See If GTA...

Recommended Posts

We may not having any luck getting new features to the game...

 

And I was hoping for more drug dealing and more active gangs etc.

As the news reporter said, "he failed to separate fantasy from reality." (Or something like that)

 

Zachery Burgess (the criminal) has some issues. GTA is a game, and there is a difference between games and real life! People like Zachery should realise that when playing games such as GTA.

 

This will not effect the new content for GTA V, and anyway, the GTA series and R* have never been strangers to controversy. ;)

If the game would have had a functional jail that you get sent to for committing certain crimes, or respawn at the hospital/police station (GTAO) maybe the guy would have thought about it twice before going nuts:P

All I know is that now when I see a nice vehicle, I think "I should swerve, jump over the curb, come screeching to a halt, break the window and steal that one!" :colgate:

There have been incidents around the world, not just the US. Remember the taxi driver shooting in Thailand? The reason why GTA IV, and the series as a whole, is now banned there.

Predominately USA though, mainly because of the absolute farce that is gun control over there. Why people want to own guns so badly is something I do not understand.

They want to "defend themselves" AKA shoot their family, friends & neighbours :lol:

So if GTA inspires you to go in a crime spree... what does tetris do?

Organize stuff I suppose. :monocle:

 

Crazy people have been committing violent crimes before video games. You didn't see them banning or over regulating pet dogs after Son of Sam killed a bunch of people because his neighbors dog told him to.

 

Shoot...even crazy people have killed people in the name of God. You don't see religious texts being banned or censored.

 

I don't think the Colorado movie theater massacre is going to prevent or change another Batman movie production.

 

The list goes on...and on....

I don't think it will have any effect on the content of the game. Rockstar have been sued before for other GTA-inspired crimes, and successfully defended themselves by pleading the First Amendment. They more or less have an inalienable right to put whatever crazy, violent sh*t they want in their games.

I guess we can be thankful nobody was killed or anything, but that report was f*cking hilarious!

Please don't argue gun control in this topic, it's not even relevant. Especially if you're not even from/living in the country.
