I have a problem with getting too over the top as far as sex and violence, when as the game matures, it should handle the real world content in a mature fashion. I'm talking about impressionable people, but not only that, but playing the game in private or public can also be a factor, Other people have been in the room while I'm playing GTA, and they're hearing the excessive cursing or seeing simulated sex and wondering, how is this effecting/effective game play? It's really in there because it's part of the initial GTA design and concept, but the point I'm making is it's not a make or break aspect of why we like GTA.
I had heard those initial complaints about killing hookers and taking back the money, and I'd done that in Vice City as well, but it's merely comical in those days to get worked up about it, the graphics were so simplistic, but I rarely did it anyway, and I don't go to the strip clubs as habit in the real world anyway. I've been to one once with a friend! The girls didn't knock me out with their good looks! hahaha
It was his choice which one to go to however.
The point I just want to breach is it's content that we think has to be there, but there's other ways to be inventive, I'm hoping if GTA were to grow and not become tiresome, those new concepts evolve.
It's not a main sticking point, but you can imagine your parents walking in while you're doing simulated in-game sex in one of the two featured, it's awkward, wouldn't you say? The PSP GTAs brought this home for me, because you could play them virtually anywhere
