Today, like yesterday, I got disgusted once again because this game also stereotypes ethnicity and as well as genders. I noticed that most of the African-American women in San Andreas were prostitutes whereas, Caucasian women were middle-high class. I think this is a terrible discrimination of females because it might put down African-American women, especially black woman that are living in a poor neighbourhood. Consequently, black women and especially the ones that are living in degradated neighbourhoods could use this game as an escape from reality, giving up their dream. What I am trying to say is that San Andreas could facilitate to all of these women that are living every day of their life in poverty and financial problems. So, for those people the game could send the wrong message by telling them "Why are you working so hard? Why are you studying? You are just wasting your time! Sooner or later you will end up on the street and sell your body." I know this sounds terrible but it could happen. This is similar with people who start smoking or drinking because it looked cool in games.
Stereotypes against gender is unacceptable because it could reinforce the stereotype that black women are good for nothing, expect for sex, and that Caucasian women are the essence of purity and perfection. Please, give me a break!
In conclusion, my experience with GTA San Andreas was more a pain than real enjoyment, and honestly I cannot understand how in the world this game sold more than 20 million of copies. Also, as soon as I finished my last game session, I removed this game from my PC, and I will never install it anymore.
P.S. Maybe, it is true what I say to myself once in while, that I am too good for this world.
