Pixelitis Picks: The non-violent fun of Grand Theft Auto

"Grand Theft Auto V is out, and there’s no doubt that all of you are having fun mercilessly causing mayhem around Los Santos.

But think back to all that time you’ve spent in previous GTAs. There was more to it than simply “hijacking cars and shooting hookers.” Some of the fun to be had in the game didn’t have to involve a single bullet or knife shank.

When we weren’t busy performing abominable acts on the streets of Liberty City, Vice City and Los Santos, we were doing loop-de-loops in jet planes, flying on a jetpack between skyscrapers and turning the game into our own personal cab service.

So let’s take a break from the senseless acts of violence that we like to cause in GTA games and reflect on just how versatile one can be in a sandbox title." - Pixelitis Staff (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360)
