    GTA IV: Going Too Far? - Scenery

    (Page 2 of 5 )


    Hey! Look!  Liberty City has a Statue of Liberty Just like New York City.

    OOO a big building that looks just like the top of the Empire State Building!

    That bridge looks very familiarÖ.

    It doesnít take an elected official to see that Liberty City is a knock off of New York City.  While some cities would be fine with being copied true to life in the game, New York isnít too happy with the Grand Theft Auto series coming to town.  What more could you want than a game portraying your city with guns, violence, gangs, sex, and drugs?  While the streets of New York City arenít the safest in the world, they are surely better then what this game may entail. 

    This is what has city officials talking.  City Councilman Peter Vallone said, "Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in America would be like setting Halo in Disneyland.Ē Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly shared the same opinion. "It's despicable to glamorize violence in games like these, regardless of how far-fetched the setting may be." So Iím assuming he thinks people shooting people with guns and running people over is more far-fetched than, say, aliens coming down from space and blowing NYC city up in seconds with a ray such as in Independence Day?
