| (Day 1)|
I just started playing Grand Theft Auto San Andreas today and I must say I was not impressed. It is an okay game so far, though it is very similar to The Warriors for the original xbox. The game begins with Carl, the main character, being taken by cops, with races attitudes, to a part of the neighborhood called "Ballers Country", a rival gang I assume. He then can walk or steal a bike to get to Grove Street, his home. Stealing the bike is an obvious choice to the player, after all it is right in front of you, even though stealing is morally wrong because it is taking something that belongs to someone else, not you. He is then greeted, not friendly at first, by "Big Smoke" and taken to the cemetery to his momís grave and to meet with his brother (he finds out in the beginning his mom died). There is then a drive by by the Ballers. He must then steal a bike to run with his brother, Sweet, Big smoke and another friend. After you safely arrive home you can save the game and continue to play. Then you go to Ryder's house, where he is relaxing and smoking, and from there you go to get a haircut and get pizza for energy. At the pizza place, Ryder attempts to rob them, however, the employees know it is him and remain calm. The pizza man then pulls a gun out on you and Ryder and you must leave the pizza place and head back to Ryderís car, where u can then run over the pizza man. Throughout the game you can choose to run over people with your car which is morally wrong because not only are you harming an innocent person but you may also be killing them.
You then head back home and meet up with Sweet. From there u go with sweet to tag over Ballers taggings. This is another example of being immoral because you are destroying someone elseís property. Then you are left alone to go around the neighborhood to tag alone. When two Ballers are standing in front of a tag you have the option of going to another tag or shoot them. Once again murder is brought into the game and morals go out the window. After killing the two Ballers and tagging the wall you must run from the cops and continue to tag and steal cars to get even more tags. It is a back and forth moral to moral being broken in this video game, from murder to vandalism, to theft. After doing 18 more tags I headed back home where I then saved the game.
