    swilso40's GameLog for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PC)

    Saturday 17 April, 2010

    I was playing this game today and still could not figure out the confusing controls such as the looking up and down while trying to shoot. I ended up taking a different approach and looking at the ethnicity of everyone in the game happened to primarily be Hispanics and African Americans. It was extremely prevalent that when I went buy certain ethnic groups that I was the target and when I walked by people of my own ethnicity there were not so many attacks. I also came to notice that when you went around the community that going towards certain parts were better than others and there seemed to be more of an upscale group of people.
    I noticed in the game that there were tons of prostitutes and clearly a lot of hookers as well. I ended up killing them as they tended to provide the most amount of money. I clearly felt that there was ideally no point to playing this game other than to end up hurting everybody else and clearly was not like most games I have played which had a better storyline. In the beginning of the game I noticed that the main character did not even want to go back to his home community and the police picked him up and ended up handcuffing him and taking him somewhere and just left him there. In the game clearly I ended up dying time and time again and arrested over and over again as I clearly hated the police in the game and would attempt to kill them. Ideally I think this game is not that great and it invokes a very strong emotion in me that clearly strikes as not an ethical game. The racism is so prevalent here and the fact that just people killing day in day out without any safety begins to seem like a reality of some places.


    Why do you think the game's designers chose to design the world like that?
