    Urgent

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/07...s_6129500.html

    Following an investigation, ESRB slaps dreaded 18-and-over rating on controversy-wracked bestseller; Take-Two lowers guidance, still blames "unauthorized third party modification."
    Today, Take-Two Interactive announced that as the result of an investigation by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will now bear an AO for Adults Only rating. Previously, the game was rated M for Mature.
    After video of the mod was widely circulated, such figures as ardent anti-game activist Jack Thompson and U.S. Senator Hilary Clinton blasted the game. Clinton went as far as to publicly equate violent games with cigarettes and alcohol as a hazard to America's youth. In turn, political heat caused the ESRB to launch the aforementioned investigation, which looked into whether or not the mod was included in the original game or was made by a third party.
    Hilary, you will never become president you crazy bitch!

    The game is (or was...) rated 18, it's notoriously known as a violent and mature-themed game, and yet fuckin idiots still blame Rockstar for shit the parents should have considered beforehand. Parents should take full responsibility for the shit their kids buy.

    That's stupid. It's not like Rockstar made the Hot Coffee mod, it isn't their fault. The user has to intentionally download and install the 3rd party mod. It isn't something Rockstar approved, and it doesn't come with the game itself.

    or download. but when u get politicians involved, they tend to tip the scale no matter if they are right or wrong.

    sadly though, the hot coffee code is in the original game. it's in the ps2 and xbox versions as well, but u don't see it. gamespot proved that the code is in all the versions when they used a cheat code on the ps2 to reveal the sex minigame, proving no 3rd party involvement.

    Oh, it's on the Xbox and PS2 also? That wasn't too smart.

    Well, apart from Rip you can all uninstall it then. Before it warps your tiny little minds.

    The game should have always been adult only ffs, and any parent who buys it for their child should be shot. By me. In a drive-by. With my homies.

    The game has had no effect on me.

    I think its stupid. Games with customization, (like CS with the sprays), have always had nudity. I think a lot of controversy like this will follow with other games, just because some people have a lot of time on their hands and piss and moan about anything and everything. Plus, CJ has his clothes on.

    the game is a fun exaggeration of a life that most of us don't have or see a lot. how many people do u know get from a small town bum to owning millions of $$ and owning stores and casinos and rampaging through Area 69 (51) and stealing stuff? doesn't happen very often.


    wired published an article regarding a surprising increase in the iq of teenagers and young adults of the late 20th and early 21st century. expert professors of many universities comment that games such as gta and myst enhance our brain's ability to solve puzzles in a visual world.
