Grand Theft Auto V’s Topless Strippers Have Actual Gameplay Mechanics to Challenge

In Grand Theft Auto IV strippers were just eyecandy. They didn’t do anything else than giving Nico a non-interactive lapdance and that was it.
In Grand Theft Auto V things are different. Not only you’ll be able to interact with the strippers by pressing A to flirt and holding RT to touch them, but you’ll also have to watch out.

been playing the game for 1 day and its amazing on the detail rockstar as put in the game.

My guess everyone will love this game and will enjoy it.

PS yes i did buy this retail at a mom and pop shop.

TBONEJF1016d ago

at least they look better compare to GTA HOOKERS

Chrono1017d ago (Edited 1017d ago )

At this rate, we'll know the entire game by 17th of Sept.

paul-p19881017d ago

It's getting harder and harder to avoid the spoilers, i just want to experience it all myself on Tuesday... may have to shut down the internet for a couple of days lol

ginsunuva1017d ago

Watching videos of people shooting cops and going to strip clubs isn't really spoiling anything...

My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante1016d ago

Game of the Year will be Watchdogs.

Nice try though.

fattyuk1016d ago (Edited 1016d ago )

Watch dogs!?

lol it's gonna be good IMO but with bioshock infinite the last of us and GTA all released this year it sure ain't gonna be game of the year!

unprotected1017d ago

This is disgusting, more exploitation of women just to get more sales and media attention, these devs need to be taken to courts

Dude, stop being a radical feminist somewhere else. You'd probably be fine if there was a mission where a stripper kicks the guy in the nuts. Bugger off.

TryMe1017d ago

Ur acting as if the profession of a "stripper" doesn't exist in real life society today.

Plus, it's good paying profession for most mothers as well.

unprotected1017d ago

Its teens who are playing these games most of the time, and not adults, imagine them watching such scenes at their age? this is degrading the new generation, which is already looking quite low

Then people will cry out as to why young teens are raping and shooting innocent people in schools and shops

iNcRiMiNaTi1017d ago (Edited 1017d ago )

Seeing how these games aren't supposed to be sold or played by children under 18, if they're playing this game then that's bad parenting or people in that household just don't care what their kids are getting exposed to

Conzul1017d ago

@unprotected

all of the problems you cite in #3.3.1 can be traced to poor parenting, not to the game itself.
Wanna change the world? Stop griping about adult entertainment and go give a seminar on parenting.

Deep-throat1017d ago

"profession"

LOL?

"Plus, it's good paying profession for most mothers as well."

Let me laugh even harder.

Skizelli1017d ago

#3.3.1

You don't know what you're talking about. If you did your research, you'd find that the murder rate in the U.S. has been steadily declining since the early '90s, ever since people like you were bitching about Mortal Kombat and Night Trap. It's practically at an all-time low now.

Gster1017d ago

You know what man, I admire your concern. I think its an honourable thing to speak out against such things getting into the hands of teenagers and children. With that said, those of us who will be lawfully entitled to purchase and play the game can have a responsible attitude while playing or may even turn a blind eye to the less than tasteful scenes.

But you know whats even more curious to me is, I would love to know how many people on this site who have replied to you with less than courteous comments, are actually 18 yrs and over, and are legally entitled to play this game!

Skizelli1016d ago (Edited 1016d ago )

I can't believe I got disagrees on a statement defending video games from false accusations. On a gaming site, no less. But okay. Is this proof enough for you?

http://www.fbi.gov/about-us...

There's also plenty of current articles about the murder rate being at an all-time low. Google it.

How are the women being exploited? This is a real profession, that usually pays well for the women who did it. They aren't forced into doing it, they do it of their own accord. If anything, the stripper is exploiting her "talents" by having all these men (and women) pay her for her shows. She's manipulating her environment to attain something (money), just like any other job.

What about male strippers, too? It's the same thing. There's nothing inherently wrong with it and no one is being exploited.

unprotected1017d ago

Who fooled you with that statement that women choose to be strippers? they are forced to do it because there is no man to look after them, neither a job or education or a family, they are simply born with no parents, a one night stand, and there she is, a new soul on this earth with nothing to show for.

Just go and check any strippers background, and you will find out.

Bathyj1017d ago

Wow, unprotected. You just lost any moral high ground you thought you had with the statement because there is no man too protect them.

Whose the real sexist Neanderthal jerk here?

-Gespenst-1017d ago

That's an argument I have a real problem with. "It's a real profession", or "it's their job". How on earth does that legitimise anything? It was an American pilot's "job" to drop agent orange on Vietnam, does that make it okay? Does the fact that "it's how he / she earns money" somehow neutralise any ethical or moral question?

I'm not comparing stripping to agent orange bombings, but you see my point? Terrible things are justified every day because they're "a person's job". That justification can blind people to what's wrong about a thing. Talk about messed up priorities.

In some cases, strippers come from a background of fitness. Pole dancing is pretty great for your fitness. But in other cases, it's people who are struggling financially, and to be honest, stripping in that case really is one or two notches below prostitution. Stripping in general is a pretty culturally ugly thing anyhow. A strip club is just a hive of objectification, regardless of the gender it caters to.

NarooN1017d ago

Comparing people getting paid for showing off their bodies to a pilot in a war dropping napalm on enemy targets is a pretty ridiculous comparison, honestly.

Whether or not you think stripping is morally just doesn't really make any difference. I never said any job is "okay" just because it's a job. I was specifically talking about stripping.

As for a strip club being a "hive of objectification", that may be true, but once again it doesn't really matter. Everyone there is there of their own free will, and if that's how people wish to spend their money/earn their paycheck, then so be it. No one is being harmed.

People only view it as "culturally ugly" because for whatever reason, sex is frowned upon while violence is idolized. Sex is natural, and sex appeal is utilized in all sorts of marketing, even in subliminal fashions every day.

I don't understand people who try to talk down on people like this, the strippers, porn stars, etc. They're doing it consciously, no one is being hurt, so why do people get butthurt about it?

Bolts1016d ago

You can't exploit the willing.

You know, even though it's been proven that video games actually reduce stress and prevent crime than cause it. Plus teens have seen much, much worse than gta on the internet stop acting like you know what's right for everybody because you really don't -_-. Plus I've seen your other comments and I do know people who are suppliers for fun.yes believe it or not whore's exist. Go be a stupid else where

adventureghost1241017d ago

• strippers • sorry everyone auto correct is a Bitch

NihonjinChick1017d ago (Edited 1017d ago )

There are actually some women who choose to be strippers. The profession is always as sleezy as you think. Most of the time they are subject to professional contracts and strict regulations.

There are even some women who choose to be things like prostitutes (Check the legal bunny ranches in certain Nevada counties)

Also, the fact that you think women need "a man to look after them" is sexist in it's own way.

It will be a cold day in hell the day I let a bunch of pixels offend me. I'm not a stripper so I don't care.

Tctczach1017d ago

@unprotected
Haha. You say women are forced to become strippers because no man wants to look after them? Now think about that for a second. You're saying women are not independent enough to make their career choices for themselves and that they are not self sufficient. Sound like you are the one who needs to reform their way of thinking.

AshleeEmerson1017d ago

I agree, I believe this profession just like any is subjective to how good or bad it is depending on the person viewing it. My cousin strips and to her it's just dancing and guess what she is during the day? She drives fire trucks. It's just simulation guys lol. Let's be mature and realistic about that fact that it's life and what a person chooses has NOTHING to do with no one's satisfaction except their own.

Enjoy the experience.

NihonjinChick1017d ago

Correction: The profession isn't* always as sleezy as you think.

GdaTyler1017d ago (Edited 1017d ago )

So this doesn't happen in real life in strip clubs? Grow up will you? The feminazi community sure is growing rapidly.

Abdou0231017d ago

I'd agree if this was some other poor game, but actually gta doesnt need to do this to attract attention. It's just something that has been in it's dna for a long time now.

Dirtnapstor1017d ago

Unprotected has a valid point, not to the degree of "devs need to be taken to courts", but for recognizing the difference between exploitation and narration.
Most would give a pass to these types of events if it were a backdrop scene having an indirect influence on the game story line, etc. But really, for this type of gameplay to be emphasized has nothing to do with the cheese on the moon...
Seriously, how many of you will drop your controller and grace Palmala Handerson while the game is on pause? Too many of you... this sort of thing is not what gaming is about. This sort of thing makes the gaming community look bad, and any form of legitimacy takes a backseat to depravity.
I'm all for a good story, and a good story has multiple components, in whatever form. Context has it's place and reasons--perhaps things of this nature could be justified. We shall see in the coming days.
We all know this game is rated M for a reason, so be it. We all know kids of an inappropriate age will play it... is it Rockstars job to be the morality police? No. Its a parents job. No one would knock someones else's parenting decrees, so why condemn?
It says a lot when people post BS & "bugger off" or try to justify degradation. If you want it, so be it. I just recall the VGA's when Tenacious D performed and a ginormous slong "grew-up" on stage...Classy, real classy. These sorts of things eliminate validity. Am I alone or what?

Ravenor1017d ago

You're taking this shit a bit to seriously. Try a break, because if you honestly believe that a TINY part of GTAV has any bearing on how the community is perceived by people outside of Video Games. You're a tad deluded and out of touch.

I would also really like some of you to stop referring to enjoying whatever gender you're attracted to stripping, as depraved, it's like you think a Strip Club is like a cliche Victorian Brothel. There is a massive difference between thinking women are objects or sexual play things and enjoying the female form, there is NOTHING wrong with a man or a woman enjoying the sight of an attractive whatever gender it is they are attracted to.

Your expectation of a Spike produced program to be classy is also PRETTY funny.

KonsoruMasuta1016d ago

Hey man, whether or not I drop my controller to grace Palmala Handerson is none of your concern!

SpideySpeakz1017d ago

Hey, you can go to any club on a weekend and you'll see the same thing.

IanDeMartino1017d ago

Right, because every teenage kid in America doesn't already know where to find disgusting hardcore porn on the internet.

Kids these days have seen "two girls one cup" by the age of twelve, I highly doubt some polygon tits are going to scar them for life.

What is with some people's fear of nudity? Apparently going on mass murder sprees is fine, but let someone walk into a strip club in that same game and suddenly its "Oh no! Think of the Children!"

Exploitation of women? I think people need to pay more attention to shows like "pretty little liars" which run on ABC "Family" and simply by its title, tell girls that it is okay to lie, so long as they are cute enough to make up for it.

Getting mad about Grand Theft Auto games? Come on, that is so 2003, worry about Honey Boo Boo if you are scared of our culture degrading.

titletownrelo1017d ago

the game clearly says M: for mature 18+. If these kinds of games don't float your boat, then GTFO of its articles.

MacTastic1016d ago

Wow, over react much, It is not like Rockstar is putting this info out there and promoting this. And it is certainly not exploiting women because these are fake digitized women. Why is it so hard for people to separate real and fake.

Cuders1016d ago

if you are a man and you think this is disgusting then something is wrong with you. i like nice tittys and ass and would like it in video games. im sure teens can decide whether their gay or not.
