| 2nd time playing, i decided to accomplished some of the missions. This I wasn’t so lucky like yesterday, I got busted by the cops. Oh well, they let me out without a problem which was very interesting to me. A person gets busted for stealing a car and killing someone else and the next thing you see is that they’re out free of charge? Most people would go nuts if they knew a criminal was free after committing multiple crimes. I went on and continued playing, everyone was minding their own business, it was pretty clear the way different races were being portrayed; the accents were different, the music playing was different every time you would enter a new part of the city. It was pretty segregated in terms of the people you would see on the streets. The language was pretty strong and over all the violence was one of the main themes. Unlike real life, violence gets you a ranking and points in the game. If you want something you can just grab it without any consequences. Again, I can see how people consider GTA morally wrong within the game play; cheating your way through the game, stealing, and killing specially. I had fun doing all those things in the game, but that doesn’t mean that I am going to follow the same routine in real life. We have discussed in class the subject of violence in video games and movies. It will not be logical to assume that a person would act upon what he/she did during the game. We wouldn’t be looking at the picture from a moral perspective using logic.
