I feel sorry for the people that have too much time on their hands that all they can think about is feeling "uncomfortable" about some game and taking the time to post about it rather than just not caring about the game at all if it doesn't interest them.

Same could be said about making a post in a thread you don't contribute to at all. If you don't have anything to say on the topic, then don't post.

I don't care about you. If you were picked up by aliens tonight and shipped off this planet, I wouldn't cry.

I REALLY don't care about this post. What a waste of time you are. I bet your family feels the same way.

But I care about your posts, so by posting that you don't care about my posts, you're actually making me happy, which means that you do care!

Seriously this new GTA is like an alpha version of life. I liked GTA because it was like an open-world action game, where you could do whatever you wanted in order to achieve your goal, but now it seems like they've tried to make it more of a combination between "Second Life" and previous GTAs, if that makes any sense.
It's not violence that turns me off, it's the culture that I percieve is being endorsed.

FPS, the most popular genre here at NVNEWS, is all about NON STOP MURDER. You kill everyone and anything that moves for the most part. In GTA at least you have the racing, minigames, etc like you mentioned in addition to the killing.

And remember kids: prostitution is MUCH worse than mass murder.
I simply think there is a dinstinction between the sort of killing one does in COD4 and the sort that one does in GTA. COD4 certainly has more killing but I'd hardly classify the sort of killing one does in a war game as murder. On the other hand, it sounds to me like the sort of killing that goes on in GTA is murder.

On my part, I'm pretty consistent about this across all the media I choose to entertain myself with with very few exceptions. For example I've never seen the Godfather or similar shows or movies for just about the same reasons I don't like GTA and related games. Obviously my distaste is not only with media, I dislike the entire "gang" and to a certain degree "hip hop" culture in general.

Oh please. You have absolutely zero reason to believe I "have too much time [on my] hands" and "all [i] think about is feeling 'uncomfortable' about" GTA. If you can say that about my thread then the same can be said of just about every thread in every forum in the internets. I'm a philosophy major, chemistry and biology minor, applying to med-school while working nights in an ER.

I hardly sit around all day churning my noodle about GTA and what it is or is not doing to society or how much I dislike it. I post on the forum when I can to get a break from everything else I'm doing. I can start a thread about something I've thought about for 1 fraction of a second just as easily as I can about something I've been thinking about for years and the fact that I've started a thread hardly indicates the length or degree with which I've considered the topic I'm posting on unless I were to explicitly state it. Maybe you should spend a little more time thinking about what you post before you do it to avoid making such obviously absurd comments.
