Grand Theft Auto: One of Britain's finest cultural exports?

William Shakespeare, Edward Elgar, The Beatles, James Bond... Grand Theft Auto?

The list of cultural icons from this "small island" is world-changing, formidable, unmatched - and so to put a video game into the same sentence as those mentioned above may be considered daring. (Grand Theft Auto, Industry, PS3, Xbox 360)

Insular American per chance?

For all those who know little about the world they live in:

Great Britain: England, Scotland, Wales

United Kingdom: England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland

lol, something made in England - English. Something made in Scotland, 'British'.

Someone proud of being Scottish - MUST be American sticking their nose in.

@Angeljuice
Complex issues, anyone?

no something made in britain = british. doesn't matter what part of the island its made in.

If you look at the article it includes cultually significant exports from all four countries that make up the uk.

"[It] clearly shows they are now on a par with film, television and animation, and deserve to be treated as such."

Try telling that to Roger Ebert.
