Political references in PC version?

There were a lot of things going on while R* produced the PC version. What do you think?

 

Maybe R* pays attention to current (political) things going on in the world and build in some (sarcastic) references to that.

 

For example an ISIS-ripoff and a Jihadi John lookalike in the desert of Blaine County we have to fight against in some additional missions?

 

Or some talk on the radio about such things? Something about Putin and Russia, or the precarious situation in Greece?

 

Thoughts?

After the Hilary Clinton fiasco, it seems Rockstar loves to troll or humiliate people in a humorous way in their games.

I'd be more than surprised if they've updated voice lines to be politically incorrect. Never mind missions.

Grand Theft Auto: Syria? You shouldn't smoke that much of that weird stuff, NumaYay.

This post made my day.

This is the sort of stuff you'd discuss before September 17, 2013. You're a tad late, they're not going to exclusively take the piss out of the worlds issues on the PC.

Speaking of political references:

 

The Savage description: "Like a Russian politician, it refuses to give up no matter how old it gets or how many people campaign for its decommissioning..."

 

references to the later ruling party in Soviet Russia - when it was full of old ignorant geezers.

 

NumaYay thread...

NO! Not Syria. Los Santos and Blaine County .. like I said in my opening post. Just asking if there could be references to such things.

At this stage, I highly doubt they would add such references.

Ok. Has R* done such things before?

In GTA IV, the statue of Liberty is actually a statue of Hilary Clinton. And she is holding a cup of hot coffee on her hand!! Reason that she almost sued the Houser brothers for the Hot coffee scandal in the PC version Of GTA SA. The Houser brothers gave her the D trough this way. :evilgrin:

 

But they never have gone that serious like OP is saying here.

I highly doubt that R* will let a virtual Jihadi John roam around in the Grand Senora Desert...

R* makes fun of American society through a series of GTA. That is enough politics. Other than that, their research team is excellent ! Real actors !

No.

 

Those are my thoughts.

 

GTAV is GTAV. It's going to be identical to the PS4/XboxOne version in terms of features. The ONLY new features are the new radio stations, and the new video editor. That's IT!

Sry for bumping but I just found out that Jock Cranley could be a reference to George Bush?

 

Any parody of anything else so far? Maybe R* will add such content?
