Jack, get a grip, get a life and get over it. Videogames are as much to blame for mass shootings as firefighters are to blame for fires...

Go to Youtube and look up 'reaction video + ______________' (name any gross video and youll see teens recording themselves as they watch beheadings, '2 girls, 1 cup' (scat video), etc etc
Id be more disturbed that these 4 young guys are watching this than anything you see on Grand Theft Auto 5.
They are watching 'Mexican chainsaw beheading' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orYHEL8FDQY
Viewer discretion / graphic audio / no video shown of beheading
PS: Dont go past 3:10. You can hear the guy on video gasping for air

It's a great game. The graphics are beautiful. I don't see how people say it teaches people how to kill, or become violent. It's M content game. You have to be over seventeen playing this game. Tell parents if they feel that this game is violent, don't buy it. A six year old probably shouldn't be play this game. Don't let video games become your babysitter. And video games don't make kids violent. I'm living proof of that.
I work in the 'industry' and I can tell you that figure is highly inflated, they are probably counting ALL the presales which are probably close to a few million copies, so $800m in one day is intellectual dishonest.
I did the calculation quickly when I wrote the thread and it was 1.3 million units sold but I just did the math again and it is 13 million units. That does seem like a lot of games bought, even with pre-sales
top-10-highest-grossing-video-games-ever . . .
1. World of Warcraft with 10+ billion dollars
4. GTA4 did 1.3 billion
It's ironic that games apps like Angry Birds costs 99 cents and can be as much fun to play as the $60 video game

I got it a couple of days ago. It's brilliant. I can't wait to really get into it over the weekend
I have just over 350k kills in World of Warcraft. I haven't murdered anyone. Or any animals.
hell, if you want to know what's going to be sold out for a good minute, that ps4 and new xbox coming out in november for 400 bucks. very cheap for a new console though. MIGHT actually go out and get it IF my money is right.

Anyone who's a gamer is kind of used to this. Every latest iteration of GTA or Call of Duty wins sudden attention as the "biggest selling media of all time on release" or whatever else, and it's not for really any reason at all other than because they're some of the biggest brand-name game series and that more and more people are becoming gamers as time goes on. I think when non-gamers see a news article headline in a vaccuum with something like "Call of Duty x is best selling media in history" or something, it gives the false impression that just this one game is insanely popular or something, rather than the bigger picture that gaming period is getting larger as a market and industry, that more people are gaming, etc. America is finally catching up to Europe and Asia in having an actually proper, non-amateur basis e-sports community as a result of how much the game industry has grown. The reason for the endemic stereotypes of things like "Koreans are godlike gamers" isn't because they're actually any naturally better at games than some other ethnicity. It's because for 10 or 15 years before the U.S. they had actual professional gamers paid and sponsored to play and improve at videogames just like athletes of any other competitive sport or activity. Now that the U.S. has professionally paid gamer personalities and competitive teams as well, the gap is closing rapidly in terms of what faces you see dominating competitive gaming.
Grand Theft Auto is about 'the experience'. The map is HUGE. It is about 140 square miles.
Im going to be a 'noob' now and post videos of all the buildings and vehicles the game has.
Most buildings - I dont think - aren't enterable but it gives you an idea how big the game is and how much you can do besides shoot people. Its too bad that they dont make a kids version without guins so kids could drive through the countryside.
Video of all landmarks in the game:
Video of all drive-able vehicles in the game:
There are animals in the game. Yes, there is a hunting mini game from what I read but the animals are also there to make this game as real life and believeable as it can be. If you are in the country, you will see deer or a wild boar.
GTA 5 Animals
Bears?, Chickens, Cougars, Coyotes, Cows, Deer, Dogs, Fish, Hawks, Horses, Monkeys, Rats, Seagulls, Sharks, Wild Boars
I have yet to open my delivered game for reasons mentioned in 'what are your plans for the weekend'
I want to open it!!!

I love GTA V.
My favorite mission is when Michael's Wife leaves him and the son gives him the laced drugs and he acid trips all over the city. lol.
Trevor is not at all what I expected him to be from the trailers. Nice that rockstar put a different character with a unique personality that you probably didn't expect. He's such a kinky bastard.
"my favorite mission is" should have been a hint
When is online going to be playable?
In faqs, it says two weeks from release date
Grand Theft Auto V will require a mandatory 8GB memory installation on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation
I know this isn't a game thread but it BOGGLES my mind that no one playing the game mentioned you will need a usb flash drive if you are like me who has Xbox Arcade which isn't big enough for the game.
I'm installing now and I would have been disappointed that no one mentioned this. Thankfully I had a flash drive but I would have been irked had this happened to me.
Cmon, its just about being helpful

The game started out with a gunfight with cops. But snce then, you do missions / tasks. Here's a sample. Im chasing a boat ( but I died in the mission)
The 'n' word is used a lot, they say "n1gger".
Not a shock that it sold so well. It's GTA, not Barbie's Magical Wish For The Pegasus That Sings Songs that Make The World Sing.
Call me when the latter makes Mattel half a billion dollars. Hell, call me when the latter brand creates a game good enough to play.
Loving that each time this game comes out though, the same bullshit comes about. These games make people want to kill other people and whatnot. Played many a Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat in my day, and miraculously, my friends walked away with hearts still beating, spines intact, and no 3rd degree burns from that well placed hadouken. Watch wrestling every week, never tried a northern Lights suplex. Big fan of Breaking Bad, never once tried making, snorting, smoking or vein-popping meth.
People that act as if these things are wastes of times aren't gamers, so your disdain is irrelevant. People acting like these games create a negative stimuli that leads to direct violence seem to only blame a minuscule portion of entertainment and ignore the real root of the problem.
now if you'll excuse me, all this is distracting me from playing GTA.

"Thereís death on the horizon,
and Iíll run to behold your sacrifice..."
Mr. Raspberry Jam.
Funny thing is, there is plenty to do in this game that doesn't involve killing at all. The map in this is so huge. I only got to play a little bit of it at my younger brothers house, but I had a lot of fun with what I did get to play. Plenty of things in this game look so good, but man the fucking water looks phenomenal.
Serious glitch found in the game. Cars can disappear if you park in a garage:
http://ca.games.yahoo.com/blogs/plug...170530151.htmlCar theft is a serious problem in Los Santos, but it's turning out to be an even bigger headache for Rockstar Games.
A bug in Grand Theft Auto V is causing cars and car upgrades to disappear when players park vehicles in the game's various garages, which are supposed to be save points. As a result, Rockstar is warning fans not to use those garages until they can solve the problem.
"We have received some reports about problems with cars and garages, particularly after upgrading and then completing a mission, and are looking into this now. Unfortunately, we do not currently have a workaround to recover a car if it is missing," the developer said on its support page. "Please try to avoid parking a car in a garage, driving one already in a garage, or getting in a default vehicle, when playing as a character other than the one with your upgrades."
No one's quite sure what triggers the bug. Rockstar noted it may occur if you drive another character's vehicle (i.e. Franklin taking one of Michael's rides out for a spin).
GTA 5 - flying in a plane over the map (in fast motion), then landing
This area of the map is not available in the game yet so cops come and I die.
(I meant to post the video where I land successfully for the first time)

First flight, over water. I should have video captured to make the water appear clearer
all this gta 5 talk is making me extra jealous right now. happy that you guys didn't post any spoilers anymore. please don't.
Finally got it! Playing it now baby! ;D
I make my bed with the stars above my head and dream of a place called home.
Wendy Williams is letting her 13 year old son play the game.
You can stab cows with a forklift so if I go out and really do that, the game is totally to blame ;-)
I did an hour worth of video capture and the sound didnt work ;-(
Driving around (its a two step process to do a video capture - [record to video / capture from video] - so I just used my camera (again)
I'm going to wait until i see that game in the discount bins at Game Stop
I like playing the old games even tho i lose all the time
