Good News for gamers like… me. Lol
Apparently this post is written for Tuesday but you know how it is with time difference and all. Anyway, When players get their hands on “Grand Theft Auto V” on Tuesday, the gaming world will get another titillating dose of the S3x and violence that has come to define the series in the eyes of millions many of whom have never played it.
Early reviews of the game confirm a checklist of activities from any good criminal’s daily planner: bong hits and lap dances, torture and teasers. They also herald the return of what The New York Times called “the most immersive spectacle in interactive entertainment.”
And in a world that’s learned to take “Call of Duty” and Quentin Tarantino in stride, it’s a combination some predict could result in the most lucrative entertainment launch in history.
“GTA is easily one of the biggest game releases of the year,” said Steve Butts, editor-in-chief of games and entertainment site IGN.com. “The previous game is still one of the biggest entertainment launches of all time, and there’s no reason to think GTA V will be any different.”
Launched in 1997, the “Grand Theft Auto” series is one of the most successful in video-game history, selling more than 125 million units. Along the way, the series has transcended the gaming world to become a cultural phenomenon through its rare mix of popularity and controversy. Samuel L. Jackson, Dennis Hopper, Ricky Gervais, Peter Fonda and Debbie Harry are among the voice actors who have lent their talents to the series.
