GTAV


This. When I tell people the game is childish and juvenile and shallow, they say things like "WHAT? No! You get to set people's houses on fire! And pistol whip hookers! And blow people up with a rocket launcher! And there's boobs!!"

Apparently those are mature, sophisticated features in games.


I sincerely doubt anyone says anything like that, especially because 2 of them aren't even features in the game. Nice strawman.

I do wish people who don't like GTA would stop trying to act like their preferences make them better than others, and calling GTA V a kids game in any sense is just ridiculous.


^ this. Far too often on this board, I see people claim that mature games are for kids, simply because kids want them or think they're cool. If that's the case, porn, guns, being an astronaut/pro football player, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sex, driving and all types of other s*** kids have no business seeing/doing are all for kids. So says the wii u board.

Really? Because I certainly remember setting a house on fire, pistol whipping hookers/strippers and blowing up people with a rocket launcher in GTA V... there are plenty of boobs as well.

I'm not saying people actually say things like that, but you can certainly do those things.
