The Gamechangers (Documentary on Grand Theft Auto)

Recommended Posts

This documentary was made by the BBC, as far as I know this is only available to watch in the UK.
Basically the BBC made this TV drama documentary based on Grand Theft Auto, RockStar Games was not involved in creating this documentary, they was contacted about it but did not want to be involved. RockStar tried contacting the BBC back in April when the show was first announced, Rockstar attempted to sue the BBC for "trademark infringement," insisting that that neither publisher Take Two nor Rockstar had anything to do with the show's creation.

So the question is did any of you that could watch it, watch it?, if you did watch it what did you think about this?.
If you are from the UK and did not watch it, you can watch it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06ccjn9/the-gamechangers

I like Radcliffe, but this movie seems iffy in ways I can't comprehend.

 

Yeah Rockstar doesn't seem a fan. Some of the original GTA devs are trashing the sh*t out of it.

How so? The lawsuit? Edited by Mr. Fahrenheit

Various devs are trashing the film on twitter. Even Mike Dailly, one of the original creators of the series back before Rockstar was even a thing.

 

Rockstar's official twitter even took a shot at it.

Rockstar's offical support twitter even took a shot at it.

 

I saw that tweet and thought it was funny, and noticed that the BBC never responded to them, but if this lawsuit went ahead, i doubt rockstar would win, since the BBC is massive

If the BBC don't get the suit, they're still gonna need some Aloe Vera.

This topic doesn't belong in this GTAV section, it should be in GTA Series Forum.

 

Unfortunately, I can't move it because there is already a topic for this discussion.

 

Please feel free to repost in that thread and this one is closed.
