Polygon - "Why do so many people care so much about this particular game compared to the thousands of others?
It's a loaded question. To a total outsider, I imagine Grand Theft Auto 5 looks like just another game in which men shoot other men. To someone with minimal cultural context, it's the latest in a storied series of video games about doing drugs, killing cops and doing and killing prostitutes. There must be something more to Grand Theft Auto that attracts millions of people to spend $60, over seven times the price of an average movie ticket."
