The Simpsons Game from Electronic Arts hasn't been shy about poking fun at fellow game conventions, and a while ago we reported that Rockstar had its feathers ruffled by the parody. Lead designer Greg Rizzer commented that "if we make fun of Grand Theft Auto, we're not going to hurt the sales of Grand Theft Auto... But yeah, we've definitely had some reactions -- we've had to pull stuff from the game."
That's a spot-on description, as we found this weekend that the trailer previously devoted to the "Grand Theft Scratchy" parody has now been retitled to the infinitely less clever "Mob Rules," confirming that Grand Theft Auto was one of the casualties caused by lack of a sense of humor. Otherwise, the trailer looks untouched, so it seems that the title was the major problem and not the parody game content itself.
