During 2001 (I think?) there was a game that was on all minds. That game was Grand Theft Auto 3 . When it came out for the Playstation 2, people could not get enough of the game that cheated society. How so? Let me explain.
For those of you who remember, Grand Theft Auto 3 (GTA3) ruffed a lot of feathers. No one said anything about the first two games, but once made into a tangible 3D world, GTA3 became all the controversy.
Republican news stations saw GTA3 as an easy target. Not only could you crush people with cars and kill police, but you could also pick up prostitutes. Sort of. Honking the horn would sometimes cause prostitutes to approach your car and get in the passenger seat, and your money would go down. That was it. Even in a convertible, you could see that nothing was going on.
Regardless, the timing was bad. The September 11th attacks were still in many minds and were sensitive to dark humor and violence. Regardless, the game became an instant classic.
And why would it not be? Who does not like to light homeless people on fire and such? No one. Which is why you should buy it if you have a Playstation 2 lying around.
