    GTA IV: Going Too Far? - Rockstarís Reaction

    (Page 5 of 5 )

    How did Rockstar react to New York Cityís shunning of the game?  Like any business that is in it for the money, they donít really seem bothered.  Who in their right mind would stop a game series like Grand Theft Auto, a series that has had the last three games become best sellers?

    Rockstar isnít going to rebuild their whole city to make people happy. They have even taken it a step further and begun a massive marketing campaign in New York City (oh boy I bet the mayor loves seeing those ads as he drives to work!). They have signs slapped up on buildings in the city with the famous ďIV.Ē The release date hasnít been pushed back; it is on schedule for  release on October 16, 2007. As of now, Rockstar isnít doing anything to make the city of New York happier with the game.   

    Too Far?

    Has Rockstar gone too far with this game? We have all pretty much gotten used to the violence and sex in games today. It seems like any popular shooter game has to have blood and guts coming out. It isnít very often that you see a Teen or lower rated shooting game on the best sellers list. 

    Has it gone too far with the location of these battles?  Games like Call of Duty take place on a battlefield; games like GTA take place in cities and now cities that look strikingly like a real city. Will this be the brick wall for video games or will society adapt to the changing games?  Will we one day see a game with a destructive environment in which we'll be able to level whole cities and homes?  New York City has come out and said that this is enough; itís too far for video games to get this realistic.  Will we see other cities or government step up and put a limit to what Rockstar and other video game creators can do?
