The Daily Five: Reasons for Grand Theft Auto's Success

"Yesterday, we reported that the Grand Theft Auto series had surpassed the 185 million units shipped mark, cementing its place as one of the most successful video franchises of all-time. But why is it so successful? Mainstream media and politicians would like us to believe that it is all because of the gratuitous sex and violence present in each entry of the series. We here at Stealthy Box don't think it is so simple though." - Travis Tucker, Stealthy Box (Culture)
