Chinatown Wars lets you buy and sell drugs

"Worried that GTA: Chinatown Wars was going to be a watered-down GTA experience? As in, toned down for the kids? No need to worry about that, as it's been revealed that not only do Rockstar have Nintendo's blessing to pitch the game at adults ("They didn’t want us to make a GTA for kids, and we weren’t interested in making a game we wouldn’t normally make), but that the game will let the player buy and sell prohibited narcotics. In a drug-dealing minigame. There's six drugs on offer, all of them real drugs, so if you're one of those strange, insecure types who like to get super-defensive in advance of sensationalist tabloid headlines, now's the time to start ensuring your hackles are raised."

So what are your thoughts on this?

What? No Mandy? Ketamine? Meths?

Lol at having a drug dealing mini game, usually it's like... brush the pony's hair, bathe the dog, etc. The brevity of this is weird though, on a console that is marketed directly and deliberately at the younger generation ( for the most part) this is astounding. Like, on the 360, PS3, marketed at older people (who can afford them more easily) there wasn't this in IV, etc. You get what I'm saying though.

i think this new feature will decide wether GTA: CW is going to be good or suck. the selection of drugs is okay, yet it might get boring after a while, but i can't judge on that. it might be cool, especially if we can rely on selling drugs whenever we need money.

if it's good maybe they will add this feature to the next console GTA :coolthumbup:

GTA is a bit more geared towards adults anyways so I don't se why it's so wrong to have drug dealing in the game. That doesn't mean everyone will go out and start to deal drugs. You steal cars, kill people and screw random chicks. I hardly think that it's going over the top to add drug deals.

Maybe it's just me, but a game that's centered on the buying and selling of drugs isn't as appealing as a normal GTA game with killing, racing, and randomness. The idea of CW reminds me of these Internet flash games where you're a drug lord controlling a business, and that's all you do, all the time. Hopefully CW won't be all drugs and will include some classic missions that bring back the 'flavor' of GTA.

I'm not to keen on the idea, I just don't see the fun of virtual drug dealing. I think it is a bit weird this is the first game that this will appear in, DS is aimed at kiddies. Strange, well the kiddies can learn what LSD is.

hahaha. imagine some irresponsible parents buy this game for their 9 year old. "Hey daddy, what's crack" ... awkward. lol.

It wouldn't be the first time. Poor old Rockstar will cop the blame.

Lol. So you can honestly say you were never a shotgun wielding drug dealer? Well that makes one of us I suppose. Didn't you know that all GTA fans are criminals? :P

It's pretty cool to have the drug dealing feature in CW. I'm not no fan of drugs, but this could be an interesting feature as it could affect you throughout the whole game. So say for instance you take weed, not that I've taken it, but your vision would turn blurry making your screen all blurred and making it harder for you to move about. That was a feature in VCS, which was a really big pain, but eventually you made it towards the end. Something like it but removing the hardened controls would do awesomely.

Hopefully in future GTA's this will be incorporated.

Oh and Bear, this game isn't for kids, just because Nintendo has always had games based for Kids, fact is, it's a game, and it will have it's Mature rating (17+). Plus it won't be clean and shiny, it will be dirty and grim, so it wouldn't be suited for kids. But I see where you're coming from though. Even I thought of it that way once, until I realized that.

They had that feature in Saints Row 1 and 2, it was a pretty neat feature I guess. Didn't really add to the gameplay in anyway but just cool to see it in the game. If they put that feature in this game I wonder what would happen if you took all the drugs at once... :rolleyes:
