| I played San Andreas late last night, for about an hour before having to go to bed. The storyline is fun and interesting, but the real fun in this game is the rampages. Why do I get such a thrill from killing virtual people and cops? I don't think I'd want my kids playing this game. There is one mission I did last night where I had to steal some cargo for Ryder. In the intro of the mission, Ryder is going on about dropping out of school. I think he is supposed to be stoned. So in this mission, we see drugs, quitting school, and killing people in order to steal from them. These are all things that are looked down on and mostly illegal in life. So what justifies it in a video game. The rating on it is M, for Mature, which means no children should play it. However, I see kids with games like these all the time. If our kids are learning this stuff from their games then what is to stop them from doing it in life? On the other hand, how fun is this game? Yesterday I decided that I needed a car to drive around in, so like I do often in this game, I broke into one. A cop saw. I spent about 20 minutes running from and shooting at cops. I finally get arrested and then I am released...literally seconds from then in real life. I think this puts a bad idea in the minds of kids that maybe jail isn't much of a bad thing at all.
