GTA: San Andreas to be Re-Released Next Week

dudle What hurricane Katrina can teach us about GTA::SA (272 comments)

Disclaimer: Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas is one of the rare games I actually purchased.

Many folks have pointed out the lack of logic in rating the game Adult Only following a third party modification that allows the player to see a naked girl. The girl, mind you, is virtual.

The truth is, the US is a country were no one is responsible, especially not the parents. They buy a game to their spoiled fat brats so that they will shut up once they are done with the gallon of ice cream. The game is here to keep the kids occupied in front of the almighty TV.

When people started looting the Walmarts in New Orleans, some were screaming "TV!TV!TV!" (see Newsweek of this week). It is no secret that the television is the almighty home appliance today in the US.

Look at the way the politicians were (and to a certain extent, still are) blaming each other for the mess related to the rescue efforts in the region. This is a country were it does not matter who is right or wrong, as long as the blame goes to someone else. See also the song "Blame Canada" from South Park the Movie.

Just food for toughts.
