Grand Theft Auto 5 is released today and while it is receiving critical acclaim it will also be greeted with uneducated criticism. I worked in a game shop many years ago and it was shocking how many parents were buying Grand Theft Auto for their children. The game is clearly rated 18, the parents wouldn’t let their 8 year old smoke or drink so they should not be playing these games. That is were the criticism should lie, not with the game developers.
Violent games do not make the player want to go out shooting people no matter how easily influenced they are. If that was the case we wouldn’t be able to watch movies or even read the news.
For all those with the game today, enjoy!
