Seriously? I don't see the point of the mod, nor do I see a reason to be upset about it. It's just the paintjob of a car. The army and FBI don't seem to care that they're specifically named in the game.
herkules  +   1986d ago
yeah...good point. this doesnt seem like a huge deal.
Sandwich Bender  +   1986d ago
I feel the same way, Twizlex. I don't really understand it either way.
herkules  +   1986d ago
its just more pointless drama if you ask me

hhahahaha
Additional generic cop comment, Twizlex. :)

Maybe it's just the sound of the siren that angers them while they play it. I couldn't keep it on for more than 10 seconds... It sounds pretty irritating...

the real quesition is
.Who approved this shyt.?
pixelsword  +   1985d ago
Put up a donught mod
That'll shut them up
Vault Boy  +   1986d ago
What a pointless mod. Who cares enough to want REAL police cars in the game instead of the ones that actually correspond to the different cities?
Sandwich Bender  +   1986d ago
This kinda smells like someone just trying to stir stuff up. It's pointless, like you said.
Twizlex  +   1986d ago
But I still don't think there's anything the police should get worked up about. Do they think people want to put real cars in the game so that they can pretend they are shooting real cops? Is fake killing specific cops more offensive than fake killing unnamed cops? I just don't get it.
Sandwich Bender  +   1986d ago
That's a good point. I would think the idea of offing police officers in general would be as offensive as it gets. Maybe they're just upset that it's so close to home? I know if someone put a "sandwich bender" in the game so that they could kill him, I would be a little weirded out.

But I agree; it's nothing to get worked up over.

"I know if someone put a "sandwich bender" in the game so that they could kill him, I would be a little weirded out."

I'd be too psyched to a be in a game to worry about why I was in it! lolz

...or get shot 50 times as you're leaving the club where your bachelor party was being held on the morning of your wedding.

@6
Because a set of keys in your hand looks exactly like a gun.
LONEWOLF231  +   1986d ago
People still actually play this?????
herkules  +   1986d ago
I think it's still really big because of the modding community and the multiplayer...i think it's called multi theft auto, not sure though
LONEWOLF231  +   1985d ago
Ohh i see, well the multipayer alone adds a reason to play it.
TheIneffableBob  +   1985d ago
The multiplayer is great. 128 players in a single game.
Sheikh Yerbouti  +   1986d ago
Don't like cops at all...
I'd like to see one with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the Indiana State Police and ESPECIALLY the Cumberland Police Department.

I'd love to shoot up the Cumberland Police.

BTW, Marion County (Indianapolis) Sheriffs are okay, but they really don't exist anymore. Guess they weren't asses enough.

Yeah, FTP!
Sheikh Yerbouti  +   1985d ago
I fought the law and the law gave 3 disagrees...
Hey, I saw that coming! LOL!

I don't hate cops individually folks, just collectively. I have seen/heard/experienced some things that lets me know cops can't always be trusted. We all live in our own realities, I suppose.

Like others said who still plays this?

If I was a cop I'd be focusing more of my time on my job, duty, and family. Focusing on fictional entertainment worlds that borrowed a 3D image of the car you drive to do your job is meaningless to the point of where you should find a new career, because clearly you have your priorities in the wrong place.

those are looking good
BELIE7ER  +   1984d ago
a cruiser like the one i drive
i think it would be cool to drive a cruiser in a game that looks just like the one i drive in real life. this piece seems to be written just to cause alot of fuss, so why dont you cop hating juvenile delinquents shut up? you have some bad cops out there, like anywhere else, but the vast majority of the guys i know are great guys and put up with more crap than you ungrateful punks will ever have to. and you would be suprised how many of us like to play videogames.
