WHO AT KS HAS PLAYED GTA? WHICH VERSION(S)? ONLINE OR STORY MODE?


i have played gta 5 and before i started to play i never really understood why these type of violent games are so big
i always thought and still do, these type of games are bad for society... mentally unstable people might copy these things and apply it in real life, thinking it is ok and all
i think these type of games are promoting bad behaviour ... BUT sure, people who are mentally stable enough won't do anything and get it that it is just a game and won't be influenced by it
because they know what is right and wrong

but there is plenty of people out there in this life that do not know what is right or wrong in this life because they may suffer from personality disorders etc
so what are you doing to your kid, not knowing your kid may have something going on mentally and you give this game to them for christmas?
but anyhow... of course there are more reasons out there why people are violent in real life, not soley caused by these type of games but i do think stuff like GTA makes it worse in a way

that being said, may sound hypocritical but i have played it, gta5 ,story mode
and i did like it but only because it has an adventure and quest thing going on
and i like that in games:joshmeh:

I've played pretty much all the GTAs. My favourite is GTA 5 and GTA San Andreas.


As for GTA "promotes violence" and is bad for society... You could say that about any violent video game, movie and TV show. At the end of the day, you cannot account for nor censor these things just because there is a risk that mentally unstable people will be encouraged by and copy what they see. These people are even influenced by small things they see in society itself. For whatever reason they conjure up in the mind. Unfortunately, we live in a world where this disturbing and disgusting things happen.

Media, like video games, films and tv shows that have violence are just telling stories. They aren't made to encourage or promote. These stories have to exist as they are essentially just forms of art. And they are allowed to be told. We can't just tell stories to one another that only have pleasant tea parties and friendly pillow fights etc.

The VAST majority of people that play video games and watch films and tv shows that include violence aren't going to copy what they see. Because you know, they are normal people with stable minds lol.

oh yeah i actually do
i think the movie and tv industry are ridiculous
earning money by putting on things on a screen that basically makes it look like it is cool and awesome to be a criminal
to say the least

and i get you , saying that not all tv and movie stories can be all happy and shit
i don't mean it like that
sure, put in some guns to fancy up the story or hit that bastard in the face
i think it's ok as long as you make it obvious what is right and wrong in your story

there is plenty shit out there that actually makes it look like being a criminal or whatever is an awesome thing?:taeminface:
letting good people suffer and the bad people win?
oh wait but that is real life:sanathink::lisalaugh::sippinthetea::ilovebread:

Like most people I started with GTA III on the PS2. Then played all the others since.

I think my favorite is still San Andreas cause of the story and time period. But I also LOVED GTA IV online. Didn't care as much for the story mode on that one.
