GTA V: 10 Reasons It’s Guaranteed to Cause Controversy

WC - Rockstar can’t seem to move without making waves. With virtually every online eye focused intently on GTA V and its road to release, it looks like this time they’re working on a tsunami. I’m not sure I remember a game that’s been so hotly anticipated, so consistently googled and speculated on, if there ever was one. Suffice it to say, we’re standing on the precipice of yet another huge R* release. And of course, along with that comes yet another controversy sh*tstorm. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Of course it will... this will not be shocking and its expected from the series.

GTAV will Suck. My #1 reason for saying this is that its set in Modern day time like GTA4.

But GTAIV didn't suck though.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1158d ago
So you're saying cause it's modern day, it sucks? It looks pretty impresive to me.
Xx-ADITYA-xX  +   1158d ago
No, you and your mum will suck, cocks...

Say what you want, i loved all the gta games and ill test this out too before i say something. Like all gamers should

GTA IV didn't suck, but it was hugely overrated. Everyone can expect GTA V to average 95%+ but this time I hope it actually deserves it.

They know the secrets to N4G hits... controversial articles about popular games.

GTA IV didn't really cause that much controversy though. There was a little tiff with M.A.D.D., but video games really don't shake the media in the way that they used to. Even with GOW3's lesbian scene, it was largely ignored by the media when I was sure that it would erupt. I think it's because the media moved onto toher other things to demonize and video games as video games are now more accepted in culture than they once were.

If it does then so be it. But lets see how it plays out

GTA is the reason I will do a shootout in my neighbourhood. Oh wait...
Xalaris  +   1157d ago
Good use of sarcasm, because GTA has never taught any morals to kids due to irresponsible parents or familiars, right?
blue_cheese  +   1158d ago
how are you going to have a "NEXT" tab on just an article? pass...
ame22  +   1158d ago

Thanks, and helpful bubs for you.
Brandon_2535  +   1158d ago
I can give you one reason it's going to cause controversy, it's Grand Theft Auto. That alone explains everything.

Anyway, really looking forward to the game! Can't wait!

FOX News will bitch about anything. so ya it will. besides saying something is bad will cause kids to play it because they want to be rebellious to there parents or society.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1158d ago
I love hearing about GTA V but these articles are just pointless. No shit GTA V will cause controversy, it always does. The next GTA V news better be legit information on the game, no speculation or a wish list.
richardcaoue  +   1158d ago
Another pointless article... Rockstars doing good lettng everyone else advertise

ab5olut10n  +   1158d ago
dey did? did you let dem?
zeeman  +   1158d ago
I must admit as a fan of R*s games since the top down version on the PS1 . GTAIV was a very dissapointing game. I couldn't believe that they dumbed down the game so much if you look at some of the missions like the casino heist in San Andreas and the one where you had to burn fields of weed R* imo took a wrong turn with niko.

The bowling with your cousin bit was jarring and the only mission that was worth remembering is the bank job else GTA4 was dead and lacked a good main protaginist even the silent guy in GTA3 was more interesting than Niko and I must admit I am underwhelmed seeing another old guy as the main protaginist.

Sleeping dogs which I completed about a week ago on the otherhand again is a brilliant game and if R* don't wake up they are going to fall behind. No denying though that R*s open world is a vast one . THey just need to get back to that loveable and over the top story and characters.

The Ballad of Gay Tony made up for the main game. The missions were quite varied and fun.

Let's all stop approving articles posted to N4G by -Mezzo- just to be dicks.
FarCryLover182  +   1157d ago
I have a feeling that the news will let this one slide....*somehow*

The name alone causes controversy
