  • No, I am entertained by the Grand Theft Auto series.
  • Not at all. They are entertaining and addictive
  • no, i play them really often...
  • They are only offensive in the way that they decided to take some of the gore out for more recent versions
  • No, and I don't think anyone should be. I don't want to be preachy, but people who are offended by videogames are just pathetic people looking for something to complain about. I mean, it's not like they have to play them, or buy them for their kids for that matter.
  • The Grand Theft Auto series is the best thing that has happened to the world!!!!!!!!!!! Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the greatest GTA game ever made. The violence, the sex, the gore, the guns, the locations, the fights, the vehicles, the missions, the characters, the soundtracks, everything about those games are so addicting. I wouldn't be here right now if it wasn't for the Grand Theft Auto series. People who are trying to ban the GTA series...they don't have a life. If someone's offended by the GTA series, or any videogame, they should leave it alone and not play it. Btw, does anyone else know if they're going to make another one after Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas?
  • No, they are great games. Nobody who can't tell the difference between real life and a video game should be allowed to play them though.
  • No. They're very amusing and humorous. Like the movie Scarface. YOU NEED PEOPLE LIKE ME! hahaha
  • Am I offended by the GTA series? not really. Why? Bcoz the game to me is just a game. I do not get addicted to any. The only reason i play games is bcoz i have nothing better today at that specific time. So if ppl call me outside, i would definately go and chill with friends for couple of hours instead of sitting at home and driving like nuts in the game world.
  • no, Sa is awesome
  • People say what a terrible influence games like that are on society... I personally am not offend by them I find them fun. However if someone is dumb enough to be influenced but such an unrealistic game they deserve to be locked up.
  • Not in the least, I rather enjoy playing as a matter of fact. It's one of the few games on the market that combine many types of game play, from driving, flying, swimming, biking...and on and on to some social skills as well. Sure there's murder and mayhem, but just like in the "real" world, you're punished for some of it. It's not exactly a game that small kids ought to play, but I think an older teen can handle it. It's no worse than what's available on Tv. If parents don't think it's appropriate, they don't have to buy it for their kids or allow it to be played.
  • if you immerse yourself in a lifestyle, albeit a virtual lifestyle, unconsciously you begin to absorb its values. Ask yourself: does these games make me grow as a person, do they teach me values that are helpful for my community? what do they teach me about attitudes to the law? to women? If I had to consider all these, then, in relation to Grand Theft Auto does offend me, because it is antisocial.
  • Not offended. The ratings are there for a reason - much furore is made about minors having access to games like this but that is down to individual parents. The games are stylish, well-designed and most of all, fun
  • No! I love it... feels like that day of fury movie with micael douglas... so relaxing!
  • i sort of am offended, but not really. just a little. it sort of has to do with the stealing of cars primarily.
  • no its just a game dude i dont care and its fun to kill people
  • The grand theft auto series is a trend setter. You see all those cheap nock offs.
  • I personally do not understand peope who can get offended by fake stuff. It is not real people and for those who do think it is real, playing GTA is probably not your biggest concern in life.
  • no way they are the hotest out right now.
  • no they are hottest.
  • No I am not offended by by the GTA series. There have been times where I disagreed with somthing that was said but other then that I still love em. But either way I think a game like this shouls only be played our watched by people that are mature and there should be no child in site.
  • no not at all its only a bit of fun and its not real. any1 that is offended by them i have some advice for u, DONT PLAY THEM OR BUY THEM!!!!!
  • I'm only offended by the fact that there is a sex scene in one of the games. Even if you can't get to it normally, it's still there, and some people would want to get to that scene.
  • hell no it is a sick game every one should play it
  • Yeah, I don't consider that entertainment and to think that kids who are 10 or 11 and go to school with my son find that entertaining and their parents allow them to play it is sickening. They will undoubtedly begin down the road of desensitisation at an earlier age due to games of this nature. It's an adult game, fine, adults should be allowed to play it since they are free individuals, but more needs to be done to ensure that children under the age of 18 aren't accessing the game. I know you're supposed to be 18 to 'buy' it, but people are having friends buy it or even their parents buy it for their young children. Parents need to wake up and be aware of what their kids are watching, playing, and entertaining themselves with. If you don't give your children ideals and morals... someone else will, and you may not like results.
  • No, If that's what people like to play. Better to rape , kill and steal in a game than in real life.
  • no its a fun game
  • I play them to relax.
  • No, as amatter of fact i think its far better than the alternative of actually commiting these crimes in real life. Its also a healthy outlet for anger.
  • I myself am not offended at all by these games. Some people would be because of the intense racism involved in these games and the drug usage and all the hidden little "mini-games" but really its your own choice to play the game don't criticize people for liking something you don't just for the excessive drug references and gang violence.
  • No am i 'ell! You get some of the best one liners ever! and who ever thought up the weapon you get after the mission where you pretend to be the "master" in GTA San Andreas was genius. Always brings a smile to my face when i can go beat someone up with an oversized phallus. hehe. xx
  • No becauee I never have played it and I never will. It's a shame that people find violence and killing "entertaining". It does not say good things for our society.
  • It doesn't offend me per se. I just don't like some of the things that it portrays. However, my answer to that is I just don't buy it or play it. I have no right to tell other people how to live their lives, so if they like it, so be it. Protesting is often nothing more than trying to bully people into accepting your point of view anyway. That or attention seeking. Let them protest. The makers of GTA are still laughing - all the way to the bank.
  • No I think they were really cool. Nothing like the gaming world had ever seen before. Gta started off a whole new game play, with gangsters, missions, crashable cars etc. I dont think people should copy the things done in the game, but thats exactly what it is, a game. Abit like when a murder takes place and they say they got it from a movie. You didnt hear about this sort of thing when jerry was setting toms tail on fire, or hitting him around the face with a frying pan did you?!? I think its just people finding an excuse to blame anything.
  • No because it is just a game. Parents should teach thir kids not to do any of that stuff. And if the kids listen then theyll know its just a game too.
  • No, not at all. I find them to be quite entertaining.
  • Hell No, GTA is extremely addictive, and fun...
  • For some reason the violence comes off as cartoon-ish, and satirical, in GTA. I think that slight gap from realism is what made it fun....and not disturbing. Rockstar just got the right formula. Compare it to another game, like Manhunt and it is a different story. It was very disturbing and in no way cartoon-ish or satirical. I didn't make it far through that game.
  • No, for one reason. I liked it, the only reason they're are having such a problem is because they got sued over the whole naked scene thing.
  • I just think that there is a large variety of people in the world... Some like GTA and some don't... In my opinion I think the game is just pure fantasy like FF or so and just saying that is offending is gibberish because I think the game isn't that violent or gore as the reality of shall we say an hospital or a prison so consider that and then lay down your explanations pathetic bunch!
  • i think san andreas is not a good example for kids but it is fun when enjoyed sensibley
  • Not at all. They are fun and addicting, They are only bad when retards copy the actions.
  • no,GTa series is great!!
  • No But Im Pretty Pissed They Didnt Give Me Any Money... They Did Base It Off Of My Life Yup Thats Right Im Bigger Than The Teflon Don I Kill Hookers Everyday Shoot Up Other Fools And Just Kick It At The Pad Playing With My Ding Ding And Watching Matlock Woo Hoo Matlock!
  • No I like it. I like World of War Craft the most but I like Grand Theft Auto too.
  • The series was very entertaining. Its a game where you can go where you wana go and do what you wana do. Its the most like real life (minus the amount of killing, gta, drugs, etc.) It doesn't get boring.
  • NO. I have the #1 & #2 for PC.
  • No because I won't play it. That type of game doesn't appeal to me so how can it offend me? It's not my job to make decisions for other people.
  • Yes I am totally offended, because I know that if I play the games or allow anyone else to play them that the world will turn into a bunch of killers! It's best to censor the games and sue the creators claiming that 'it's for the children' but really its to get yourself some money. [/sarcasm] No, I'm not offended by the series, i find them a fun way to blow of steam, and an excellent example to future game makers.
  • well yu shouldn't be it's if you follow the rating if you are 10 you might think it's offending because of the killing, drugs and sex.
  • Im not at all offended. These kinds of games are made for entertainment not to be put into real life situations and when people start relating these games to real life which pretty much means you play it way too often then problems arrise. I personlly dont think it should've been moved up to adult only but thats just my thoughts.
  • Did violence begin with video games? Did early romans kill the first christions by feeding them to the lions because they played too many games or watch too many movies? Did Hitler order the murder of innocent Jews because he was addicted to Doom 3? Did Al Capone order the St. Valentines day murders out of anger from getting pwned at too many Halo 2 matches? If you ask me, these types of crimes have gone down in the past 20 years. If you want to see violence, watch what the word of god does when it comes out of the mouths of man!
  • why would you be? unless you're a pig,but seriously if ppl dont like it,DON'T PLAY IT,me, i love it, it is one of the greatest games of all time .it is the next pacman
  • Its a good game but it teaches younger kids who play follow the screen as it show. For example killing a police or a person, blowing up cars. It can cause them into gangs unless the are smart enough that game is fake.
  • na those games ar alright with me.
  • I consider GTA art, along the lines of The Godfather, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, and The Boondock Saints. It does not upset any of my sensibilities.
  • GTA is only what we perseive it to be. GTA in my opinion is not any form of entertianment. it is only a game designed to help you learn how to kill
  • Not at all. I actually love them. But I do understand there are some people who take their video games a little more seriously than just having fun. But other than that I am looking forward to getting a PS3 so I can get the new one.
  • GTA: San Andreas is the only video game ever created that is actually offensive for semi-plausible reasons. I realize that you don't have to play a game if it offends you, and I don't play this particular game. But I am aware of its racist, sexist, criminalistic content and it does nothing for me. It's hard to defend a game that allows you to have sex with a hooker to replenish your energy and them to shoot her in the back with a machine gun when she walks away so that you can take your money back. People who play this game are just as vouyerisitc as that guy looking through your daughter's window, and their thoughts are just as disturbing.
  • For what? Absolutely not.
  • Not at all. Ever since the dawn of time that is what children have played, in real life. Don't agree? Well, that is what goes through the imagination of a child, killing, pillaging, running amok,(those green plastic soldiers weren't exactly always liberators...) except that now when people see it on a tv it rattles their brain. It hits too close to home Im guessing. Also, you can rape in gtf? no you cant you liar!
  • If some people are thickheaded enough to base their life on a video game, I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be played if has that kid of effect on their lives.
  • no i am not ofended, but i love these kind of games
  • They are beyond fun
  • Well i`m not ...tbh i think that games besides entertainment have the goal of letting us do things that you can't or are not allowed to in your day to day life, sort of like a release. And i don't think stopping a car on the street, kicking the driver in the face and driving it off a bridge and get away with it is very possible these days :)) I`ve only played gta1,2,3 and san andreas (which is my fav cause of the story which i find to be well made and interesting).
  • No,the people who think the world is going to change because of a computer game offend me more.
  • No except when kids play it. Thats just not right.
  • no its just a game anyone who does have a problem with the series has some problems that they need to get help for becouse games and movies dont make people commit violent acts its human nature to be violent violence has been around since the first person has set foot on this earth so if you have a problem with this game you obviously havent played it becouse its no worst then alot of the movies out there
  • i am in no way offended by GTA . theres no point in letting something thats not even real offend you its just a video game meant for entertainment purposes and playing GTA will not make you go out and start killing rampages and go on high speed chases from cops because if your not smart enough to know the reprocussions of these actions trust me your better off in jail or dead
  • Nope, but I'm slightly offended by those who tried to ban the GTA series, and all those which are like it.
  • i dont know who would be offended
  • no i like the games especially san andreas, things that go on in the game were already happening before it was created..eg.shootings,car theft,gangs.
  • I hate people that are offended by GTA. If you don't like it. Don't buy it. I myself will enjoy the GTA glory while you stuck up people can blame games for your childrens mistakes and maybe your bad parenting. Haha...
  • Grand Theft Auto is fine if used correctly, as long as you can differ it from real life then it's good. Sadly, (and this is why the PEGI rating sysem came into place) two people though that it was real. They though that people just appeared and it didn't matter if you shot them. One day they got hold of a sniper rifle, you can guess what happened. They ended up sitting by a motorway shooting at people! one person died and mmany were injured. In short, life isn't just about games. You should be able to see the difference and if you can't you shouldn't be playing them.
  • Not at all, its entertaining and seen as most of them are based on movies, its just like playing the movie. However young children should not be playing it as if I had a child i wouldn't let them watch gangster films.
  • Not at all, the Grand theft auto games are the most entertaining and thrilling video games ever made and those who dis-agree shoul take a look at the sales figures!!
  • NO I love the game
  • Nope, I'm glad a company is still out there that is able to make games well, and has the balls to cross boundaries other people fear to tread on.
  • i dont know i never play it. it sucks
  • Not in the slightest. Actually, I find the idea of people being offended by a computer game hilarious; just don't freakin' play the game and shut your mouths... : D
  • No. GTA is one of my favorite games and if people have a problem with the violence, then don't play it. It's as simple as that. No one is forcing you to watch and play.
  • only cause I bought it for me and my brother and his friend never let me play it. They played it as if they are the ones that bought it. This friend gets excited on every sequel that gets released as if he's the one who bought it first and it's 'his' game.
  • i love this game :D
  • oh no... Its not offensive.. Unless you are a character in the game and you were mistreated.. its a video game. most people who get offended are egocentric faggots.
  • Nope. I rather kids kill people in video games than in life.
  • I think Its a bit stupid that people say that this game is going to bring along terrible values for children, and stealing car's is fun, it dosent ever say that the life is fun, and can be a struggle if you dont have Brilliant wits about you and social skills. I think trying at every turn to guard yourself, or guard other people, makes you or the person your guarding more ignorant on today's cultural activities. Sure its a very idiotic representation of it, but you cant protect yourself from the world. If a game can affect your mind in a horrible way it shows that you didnt have a Well enforced mind to begin with. If another person tell's me GTA and games are affecting the well-being of people in the world, it may just start to get a lITTTLLE tedious
  • No..it is a game. If I am offended by such things as games and movies, I don't buy/play/watch them. Games, movies and music do not "make" people do things...the inclination is already there and a scapegoat is needed.
  • Many people find the GTA series seriously offensive, whereas other find it entertaining. Those who do not wish to witness the likings of the game should clearly not buy it. Rockstar apologized publicly many times for the racial abuse in GTA San Andreas, and seeing as the whole world is waiting for The GTA 4 I strongly suggest that those who dislike the game, are not to buy it, as it is an eighteen anyway so if parents do not want to let their children learn this language and behaviour, should not buy nor play the game. Point made.
  • Yeah. I think it's a stupid game that makes kids violent, and disobey their parents, and people around them.
  • I`m not offended but I dont agree with them...not good for kids ya know?
  • no. that game is owesome! i love it!
  • Absolutely not. I love the GTA games. Can't wait for # 4 in April.
  • Hell no i've got GTA IV preordered
  • I love GTA, I'm planing to by a PS3 just to play GTA4. I just love everything about it, GTA is the reason I own a PS2. I can't wait to play it.
  • I won't say completely that yes but honestly I am now tired of GTA series I have played each and every game in the series but now they look all the same I mean there is nothing new.I shall never try another GTA.San Andreas is last one.
  • nope got them all on computer even the first version even tho its outdated I'm still addicted to it no1 should be offended by it I don't see how you could get offended its only a game
