Default Grand Theft Auto IV for kids?

Ken,
I agree with you; but I do think it should be rated for adults, not "M". The ratings are a joke. It was expected to sale $400 million in the first week alone; but so far sales have surpassed expectations.

Default Re: Grand Theft Auto IV; Anyone got it?

Yeah, I have to agree, it really isn't geared towards kids, but then again, when I was a kid I managed to get anything I wanted that was not made/allowed of me, so I would expect even rating it 'XXX' wouldn't stop kids from playing it...

While I admit, it isn't designed for kids, though many do find a way to buy and play it, it is a game... I personally find it entertaining (at least I have the prior versions) and see it as fun, nothing more. It is not going to make me load my guns and go seek out hookers and cops to 'bust a cap in'!

Peter/(greg), how old are you (is Peter)? Do you think this will make you do just this???
hey peter again. im 16 i have been following along with the gta series since it came out. to me i agree its really mostly entertaining! i loved it running around in the game puttin caps in the peds and runnig crazy with the cars running people over. i dont really think it would make me wanna go find a gun and kill people because the fact is its only a game!!!! sometimes when people say oh yea they killed people because of these video games i think its rediculous and very unfair to label these games like that. thats my opinion

I got to play some of this game this weekend, it is only in 720p but the graphics are really good and the gameplay is pretty good as well. I have to figure out the game play and get better at fighting, but I will have time to do that...

Default Record Sales

Sold half a billion dollars in one week!
Not a bad return on the $100 million production cost!
