NYC Politicos Get Panties in a Twist Over GTA IV Trailer

Selling Prono to kid? I can't remember doing that?

I read that and I thought WTF? Does anyone remember selling porn to kids in the game? Rockstar shoud sue over those comments.

There has been NO selling of porn to kids in the GTA series so I have no idea where this fuk gets off stating BS like that!

After all, it's not rated Adults Only(18+).

If clerks sell them to minors it's not the creator's fault.

Actually, San Andreas was rerated to Adults Only and San Andreas was patched on the PC-version.
