"The game old people claim is turning us into violent sociopaths." ~ Honest Game Trailers - Grand Theft Auto V
From Rockstar Games, the company that glorifies bullying [Bully], murder, and ping-pong; comes the game old people claim is turning us into violent sociopaths WHICH IS NOT TRUE AND I'LL F***ING KILL YOU IF YOU SAY ANY DIFFERENT! [Clears throat]
Grand Theft Auto Five
Experience the phenomenal game that shattered every sales record and was the reason half the country called in sick the day it was released. Journey to the sprawling city of Los Santos, an almost perfect representation of Los Angeles except for traffic-free highways, a blue smog-less skyline, and a racially unbiased police force. Enter a game world that is so loaded with extra features you won't bother to play half of what it has to offer. Yoga, seriously? [Fabien LaRouche: "The silly man forgets to breathe."]
Experience the game's ambitious story through the eyes of not one, but three main characters: Michael, a retired criminal trying to escape his past by committing more crimes; Franklin, an up-and-coming street hustler who drops more n-bombs than Django Unchained [Franklin: "This ni**er... ni**er... this ni**er... ni**er... ni**er... this ni**er, right?"]; and Trevor, the first character whose personality matches the way the average gamer play GTA [Trevor: (hurts several people) "F**k you guys and f**k them!"]
Cruise the main streets of Los Santos in a wide variety of different cars that all pretty much handle the same. Or take to the skies in aerial vehicles that break down once you cross the county line. Or if you prefer to take things at a slower pace, explore the world in a bus, a lawn mower, and gaming's most underwhelming submarine. Aw, come on! They could've at least put a radio in this thing!
Take part in six elaborate action-packed pulse-pounding heists, but only after you spend hours planning every single meticulous detail. Ugh, rather be doing yoga. So once again, engage in violent murder sprees, over the top car chases, and epic police shoot-outs ending in your grizzly death, then waltz out of the hospital with no negative repercussions! Thanks Obamacare!
Starring: Tony Soprano [Michael De Santa]; Ice Cube [Franklin Clinton]; Breaking Bad [Trevor Philips]; Jonah Hill [Jimmy De Santa]; Kid Rock [Wade Herbert]; Fear & Loathing in Los Santos [Ron Jakowski]; Newman from Seinfeld [Lester Crest]; Beats by Dre [Lamar Davis]; Ke$ha [Tracey De Santa]; Selfies; and Stereotypes.
Grand Theft Auto Vuh
And don't forget about multiplayer, where you can crew up with your friends, too!
GTA player: "Ha, noob."
Aw, son of a bitch!
