Someone should start up a debate about the psychology behind GTA. Why it is as fun as it is even though all you pretty much do is run over and shoot innocents however and whenever you please. There's probably some deep seated psychological issues in everyone who really enjoys it.

i think that (gta) is not a bad game at all. this is a game where people get to do a total rampage on a city and be able to just flat out do what you want.

in gta the people within the game are not real and most people are pissed because rockstar has made a series that involves killing people but, i say, who cares! they are not real so killing a digital image on a tv screen will not send you to hell.

also i have heard that games like this, what they say is ( unleashes the worst in humans). yeah, ofcourse the game has violence and other mature like content but, that doesnt mean that after im done playing the game i want to go on a total rampage. also how many people acualy think that a human being can withstand 2 shots from a shotgun to the head? no one can and if they did survive most likley they would become a vegtable.

some people just hate the game for the content and what i have to say to them is that if you dont like it just stay away from it! seriously! just stay away if you dant like it because there is no one holding you hostage until you get the game,

anyway the game is just a very good game that lots of people have played. gta is also a game for real life experience. not learning how to rig a bomb or how to shoot someone but how the world works. like in the just realeased (gta4) they have made the game more life like then before. for example in the game you have to acualy obey the law, and if your in a car and you hit an object hard enough you can acualy fly out of the window! which is freaking awsome.

anyway thanks to gta4 people have seen this game francise ina whole differnt way than just killing people but, more of a world operating game, and is just really fun to play!

Grand Theft Auto 4 is not a controversial game. There is a ton of other games like this game except some people make bad choices after playing this game and they get consequenses. There are more gta games dating back and if it was a controversial game they would have had to cancel the making of the games and they have not had to do that so that proves that it is not a controversial game at all.

The pope spoke out against it. How could it not be CONTROVERSIAL?

You should close your talk whole more often. You would come across as somewhat intelligent, instead of the ignorant jagoff who swears all the time without giving intelligent counter-arguments. Back off juggernaut, only i can make fun of him.

If some people hate it and some people like it, that would make it controversial, no?

the topic of the debate is whether or not GTA is a contraversial game. having already created controversy your prior arguments were rendered moot.

if the debate was "SHOULD GTA be a controversial game" then your arguments would have merit

jugg's got it right, and you're refusing to admit/apologize.

I love this game but for me to say there is nothing wrong with it would be silly.

It does feel much worse than Halo 3 or other shooters. Not sure why. I think it's because the city feels real. Not like some alien planet, or even modern warfare which we don't see around us everyday.

It is so easy to kill innocent people too. That's what makes it fun.
