Ok, this is the turnpoint for me.
I am, like many of you, a fanatic Grand Theft Auto fan. I own almost all the games, and I´ve been following the games evolution since about 2001. I love the fanbase, and it´s a great following. I also have great respect and love towards Rockstar themselves, their work has been amazing, and I know many people agree with me. But, this really bothers me. Rockstar has decided to let North Americans and Canadians take part in a massively fun online slaughter with the icons themselves. That leaves me with a question, Does the whole world consist of only America and Canada ? What´s up with all the millions of GTA fans in Europe, and the rest of the continents ?
I really feel deserted by this decision by Rockstar, and it will seriously change my attitude towards the company that I´ve felt has changed popular culture in many new ways, unlike any gaming company before. I know people will give me various reasons on why Rockstar is doing this, but I don´t care, if they want their fans with them, it will take more than this. Consider this my resignation from the Grand Theft Auto scene, and I hope you have fun with whatever GTA that´ll succeed GTA IV, maybe then, I´ll return.
