    Sep 22nd, 2010 at 00:08:18     -    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PC)

    Another day in San Andreas. Again, I was sticking to the missions, getting CJ more respect. .
    The first mission I played today started at the drive thru. Soon after, the rival gang ‘the Ballas’ found us. The grove street boys were outraged, and they wanted them dead. The chase began. The whole time, everyone yelled at Smoke to grab a gun and help. He was too interested in eating his food. To me, this tells me that killing people in San Andreas is as common as eating food. No one is even slightly fazed. .
    Another conversation the Grove Street boys have is about the importance of guns. Apparently, this is the normal thing in San Andreas. If you need something done, use violence. .
    CJ’s brother again yelled at him for not having the right colors. So I went to the store and got a green shirt. Upon leaving the store, I got respect. Nothing will ever change on Grove Street, and people wearing green will instinctively shoot at people wearing purple. I think this is a bad moral that can pollute people’s morals. There will be no thought put into decisions made, and if no one thinks, things will never for the better.

    I played this game a few years ago when it came out, but just for fun. I never sat down and actually thought about the subtleties in the game. There are so many underlying themes that can pollute society, and maybe change some people’s values and morals. .
    One of CJ’s old friends says he is embarrassed to be seen with him, because he is not wearing the correct gang’s colors. I think this game further pushes people to fall into stereotypes. To these characters, belonging to groups and having gang territory is really important. I think this game could make people question their morals and values. .
    From all the negative things in this game, there was one positive thing. CJ sees another old friend, who is addicted to crack. CJ gets angry, and decides to beat up the crack dealer who sold him the crack. I’m not sure it was the best solution to this problem, but CJ tracks him down and beats him up with a baseball bat. Again, there are no consequences for his actions. Maybe a young child could be influenced by this game and learn that he could hurt someone because he does not agrees with his moral.
