The mission I started out with was the most risky thing I have had to do in the game thus far. Spray painting, this is an action mostly associated with gangs so I think I have found yet another thing that could get people going about this game. I continued with the mission expecting the worst, and almost doing the worst. I was approached with three guys with guns and decided to do the responsible thing and run them over with my buddy “Sweet’s” car.
We drive to another area to spray more “tags” over the rival gangs tag. Doing so will earn respect from your crew. At one point the rival gang was at the tag and the game told me to spray them in the face. I once again made the best decision and just shot them… then the police wanted me again. I got back into Sweets car to complete the mission and went back to the “hood”. Again to me it seems slightly racist but perhaps that is because of my race.
Instead of starting another mission I decided to fool around town a little more. I decided to look at the game from the worst perspective. I beat up a prostitute and stole a car. Something I found strange about my character is every time he beats someone up he apologizes. It is just a strange thing to have in the game. I also decided to get a tattoo that said “West Side” I thought it added a little something extra in my game.
Something I realized while playing GTA is that the plot is almost more fun than running around and killing people. I mean its not like when I play I don’t do that kind of stuff but strangely enough it doesn’t feel super right. I think that Grand Theft Auto though doesn’t really have any consequences for you doing crazy things like shooting people. I feel that’s the only thing bad about it. I feel no emotional connection at all and maybe that is another reason why the game is so greatly frowned upon.
