I’ve never played, but is violence and sexism the whole point of the game?
I wouldn’t know. I borrowed by nephews and just drove around stealing cars and I stole a copter from the police too. lol
“violence ruins gameplay” lol....
Ya pretty much, there’s a story line and stuff, and side quests and stuff but a lot of the time you’re just stealing cars and shooting up cops and pedestrians.
I think the game reflects reality “in the ‘hood.” They are just keepin’ it real.
I don’t know, I’ve never played it either. However, the “review” was funny has heck. This guy (?) just doesn’t get it. It is GTA. Even people who don’t play it (like me) know it is about good graphics & game play, violence, and trying to offend. What did the reviewer expect? People driving Prius’ to garden club meetings? The reviewer seems offended that GTA has stuck to it’s genre. Wow, what a shock. ;-/
“whole point of the game?”
No. There is a lot more to the game than that. It’s just
a good game that is close to reality in graphics and
character response. It’s huge and the game never ends.
You literally can play it infinitely.
Yes it is. That having been said, violence was the point of this game ("Defender"), from 1982:
Here's a still from GTA 5, 31 years later:
Bit of a difference...
My first thought as well. LOL
I don't doubt I speak for a lot of players when I say that my sessions often end up with me holed up in a sniper's nest, firing a rocket launcher at any vehicle that happens to come along.
If nothing else, GTA is cathartic.
