“Hot Coffee” Scandal was an Attack on Video Games, says Grand Theft Auto Maker

Kotaku: The "Hot Coffee" scandal—a sex minigame found by a modder inside the code of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas—still weighs on Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games, which makes the series. In an interview with The Guardian, Houser said he views the seven-year-old incident as an attack on video gaming in general. (Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, PC, PS2, Xbox)

Well if you guys never created that classless Mini-game. There would have never been an attack.

You know I really hate developers like this. You always give the media ammo to attack videogames. GTA is one of the main reasons games aren't look at favorably.

It wasn't meant to be playable. It was modded to playable. Aware of that?

do you even think about what you say before you type it in?

Yea people wanna whine and moan about sex in video games... look at the music and the tv shows that kids watch today , video games is the last thing they should worry about. AND THE GAME CLEARLY SAYS MATURE FOR 17+ if a kid plays it its the parents fault , its like someone buying porn for their kids and then complaining about the sexuality.

GTA is also one of the main reasons gaming "blew up" and became mainstream.

BTW. The media is nothing more than a bunch of snakes slithering around trying to poison things people like. You don't need to give them ammo, they create the ammo.

wait wait sex mini game is classless, yet the rest where you shoot, stab, beat, murder, solicit prostitutes into your stolen vehicle all while representing your gang is full of class and a pg time for kids. if your going to hate, hate consistently or you risk looking like a hipocrite.

Mika did you even read the post before you thought to comment? He isn't complaining about taking heat for it, He is saying that if it were in any other medium, like a movie, that there wouldn't have been an attack.

People like you are why things like this get blown out of proportion. You don't want to take the time to understand what is being said, instead you have an opinion based on misunderstandings you want to jam down others throats.

"You always give the media ammo to attack videogames."

Implying media wouldn't find something else in the game to attack.

Stay classy Mika...

Stay classy.

Like it or not if this was in a book, tv show, or movie then it wouldn't have gotten nearly as much (if any) hate.

You do realize that it was locked out and made inaccessable until someone hacked the game and unlocked it, right? All that fuss... for a questionable minigame... in a M rated game... whose access was removed in the final product. Anything else you'd like to add? And I agree with Houser.

How about you start posting some intelligent comments for once and stay effin classy for God's sake! Ugh!

I never bothered with this mini-game is it all that different than the scene from the start of god of war?
lilmetal  +   1052d ago
In a way, it's tamer than in any God of War game.
The characters are still fully clothed in Hot Coffee...

this mika thing is by a long shot the dumbest thing I've ever seen on N4G..

stupid consumer sloth..

Wow. I don't mean this as a personal attack, but that was one dumb ass comment. I know for a fact you have better analytically skills than that.
animegamingnerd  +   1052d ago
the hole thing was just blown out of proportion just like what the press always do

And it wasn't even good sex! Clothes were on, nothing shown. Too mild for the uproar to have even occurred. I'm surprised they don't make a big deal about The Sims' and their nude patches.

Or skyrim. Or half-life 2.
MadMen  +   1052d ago
of course it was.

America has accepted movies and art as forms of showing whatever they choose with a rating , yet not video games

Video Games have an unfair run, however times are changing and the public and people need to adjust to a new day of what is considered ART

Obviously. There were sex mini games before and after this. GTA is just the whipping boy when soccer moms get whiney.

The average idiotic consumer who decides to become a bad parent out of their own selfish desire for children -

"Age ratings, not even once."
