    GTA is a video game, kinda different

    And as a side note, I was in NYC about a year and a half ago and saw an add for GTA 3 placed on top of a cab, oh the irony :ha:

    Well, I'm not, I think any decent parents should be able to teach their kids that what happens in video games, movies, tv shows, etc. doesn't work in real life. I personally think blaming any type of media for screwing kids up is just passing the blame.

    This clip is from South Park, so there is some language, but I feel it's appropriate here and illustrates my point:

    Game trailer looks good, of course the game won't look like that.

    As for South Park, in their own weird way, they are usually spot on with opinions and points of view.

    I've always thought the same thing, and I'm always amazed at what they can get away with
