    Sep 24th, 2009 at 01:54:17     -    Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas (PS2)

    After another thirty minutes playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas I was overwhelmed at the amount of racial slurs used and the racist ideas that the game is displaying. It makes me wonder if the idea that having a game as horrid as this one out on the market is a good or bad idea. I have never before thought that video games led to violence in the youth, but after playing San Andreas and thinking about the things I'm doing within the context of the game makes me rethink my previous notions. This is a very violent game, and the structure of the game allows for the player to do pretty much any illegal activity in the book, from murder to prostitution. Theses are very graphic ideas that is available for the player to participate in. It just makes me think more about whether or not creating these numerous illegal activities in the video game world will make it seem OK in the real world. Are video games just the "gate way drug" to violence?

    From the beginning of the game the player gets a brace of racial slurs and violence. The sense of the player are attack with curse words. The main character of the game, CJ, is a former hoodlum. we enter the game finding out that Cj's mother had just been murdered. CJ;s immediate response was to travel home and get revenge on the person who harmed his mother. when the cut scenes end you get the ability to take control of the character, which also allows him to attack other characters within the free universe of the game. As soon as i gained control of CJ, i ventured into the street and stole a car which i then used to hit an old man walking by. It was fairly easy to run away from the crime. its felt relatively easy to do criminal activities, and it was( for the poor graphics) gory.
