"As a widely outspoken critic of the videogame industry, Eliot Spitzer has been a small blip on gamer's radars for short while now. During his 2006 campaign he jumped on his soapbox and tore into Grand Theft Auto 3 with the following remarks:
"Media content has gotten more graphic, more violent, and more sex-based… Currently, nothing under New York State law prohibits a fourteen-year old from walking into a video store and buying… a game like Grand Theft Auto, which rewards a player for stealing cars and beating people up. Children can even simulate having sex with a prostitute…"
Maybe if Mr. Spitzer had been practicing the act in a virtual world since he was fourteen he would have been better at getting away with it…
I think gamers across the nation should donate a couple bucks each and we'll get Rockstar to make a Special "Spitzer" Edition of the game. What do you say?"
