Gta 5

Anyone playing Grand Theft Auto 5? The typical day to day life in the USA.

Re: Gta 5

I must be living in a different country than the one Colin talks about. In my 60+ years, I have not been a party to or know of anyone who has been a party to stealing a car or having a car stolen. You must get a very stilted view of our country from your hyped up media people because that is not our reality. Is the BBC a real news source or do they get their news from the New York Post?

Nothing to do with the media old son.

I'm talking about the video game "Grand Theft Auto 5", car stealing is a minor part of the game.

Col,

I knew that you were referring to Grand Theft Auto. It was the crack

that made me respond. It is as if you believe that GTA is a microcosm of life in the USA. GTA is not reality and does not represent life here any more than Harry Potter represents life in GB.

That'll be apart from the gangland killings, the corruption at high level, the car crime, street robberies, shop robberies, shops that sell guns over the counter, road rage where they pull a gun instead of having a shout - shall I go on?

Harry Potter is a figment of a warped writers imagination- albeit a very rich writer.

Bloody hell, all I asked was has anybody played it / got it, I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition and have to justify its existence.

If GTA was a reality, things would be much much different.

If she can make that kind of money, she ain't warped. She's brilliant. I wish to Hell that I was half that warped.

(No snide remarks from the sidelines, please... it was a compliment to JKR.)
