What are the real world consequences for your crimes in Grand Theft Auto?

GamesRadar - The real world is monotonous and soul-sucking, but in games we can be knights, sorcerers, spies, assassins, and even criminals. Case in point: Grand Theft Auto. Over the last decade and a half the GTA series has become one of the most famous/infamous franchises around, and for good reason. What better escape is there than blowing up entire city blocks, running rampage in sports cars, and wantonly murdering anyone and everyone who looks at you funny? (Culture, Grand Theft Auto IV)

well, there aren't any, unless u're an idiot who can't distinguish between what's ok in a video game and what's ok in real life.

You obviously don't get the article. It's a what if. He's saying what's the time for the crime...so to speak. Read it again and I'll let that ignorance slide.

None.
But without a doubt, in the coming years we would still be here reading about a 14 year old who shot someone after playing GTA V, and guess what, the media will ignore that it was just one person out of the 20 million or so who own the game, what is that? 0.000005% who own GTA.
I mean it's still serious, but is it REALLY because of a video game, or the age of the player, their access to firearms, lack of education their upbringing and so on..
