| I just finished playing my final round of Grand Theft auto. I still have mixed feelings about the game. One one hand, as I stated in previous posts, the amount of violence and sexual content bothers me. I come from a Catholic background and have adapted the majority of Catholic beliefs. I almost felt dirty when I had to shoot other characters or steal cars. I feel that other games that involve killing other human characters have an unrealistic storyline compared to Grand Theft Auto. Everything that happens in Grand Theft Auto could potentially happen in real life. People do steal cars, kill other people, etc. I think that playing a video game should let you escape the pressures of the real world, not place you into a more corrupt world. If the more violent themes were toned down, I think I would have found the game more enjoyable.|
On the other hand, I do realize that this is only a game and not reality. However, not all players might grasp this concept and might consider trying some of the game moves in real life. Kids, especially now, can get so caught up in the virtual world that it becomes hard to decipher reality from the game. If I were a parent, I would monitor my child's game play of Grand Theft Auto.
The graphics for the game were excellent. I have not played video games in awhile, so it was cool to see how much progress has been made since my last gaming system (N64). The detailed graphics allow you to really feel like you are in the game. You can get a better sense of the environment you are in.
