Ironic right? Shooting everyone in sight and nudity....but God forbid you say number 11, even though most characters in single player can't go a sentence without it.

you also cant use the words "rockstar" or "r*"

lmao


Not to mention "Social Club" is off limits. I guess so people can't bash R* using their own game.

I always found it hilarious that I can't use profanity in a text, but NPCs can text me "you'll be on a slab soon, M*therF*cker" all day long.

Also, if I go around cussing people out using non-stop profanity and slurs such as f*ggot (not that I do or would) I can be mic banned, but the cops do exactly that to us for hours on end. How I wish I could get THOSE trolls mic banned....

I think it'd be to dissuade people from impersonating Rockstar.

It makes perfect sense. Just because the game is rated M doesn't mean all of it's players deserve to be rated as M as well, because clearly many players aren't mature at all. One less thing to abuse.

I don't need all of these colorful words being sent to me just because some lame started something they couldn't finish, and didn't know how else to vent their anger. It's just a game.

Popular opinion and fact are not the same thing. Think for yourself.

Plus - language is one thing, context is another. the logic doesn't apply to GTA V, where it steps a little bit into everything, but in a standard M-rated game, saying "oh, f***" is fine whereas a 12-year old character explicitly saying that he "f***ed my mother last night" probably wouldn't get past the censor.

So it makes little sense for the game to allow that same thing happen within it's capabilities.
