Today was my first experience playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It is actually my first game on the Playstation. I was not sure what to expect. I had heard negative comments regarding the game's violence and sexuality. That was confirmed when my roommate wanted to play the game with me and "kill some strippers."
As I started playing the game, I knew it would not be an enjoyable experience. The violent and sexual themes were predominant. I cannont imagine young teenagers playing this game without it having some sort of impact on them. However, after the exercise in class, some kids might use the game as an outlet for their frustration. I would hope that most players understand the difference between reality and the game, but that is not always the case.
