New York Gets Pissy

Posted on Monday, April 2 @ 20:07:28 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
New York was always the inspiration for Liberty City, but now that the parallel is more obvious, some city politicians have decided to have a snit.

Just as San Andreas is clearly Los Angeles, and Vice City is Miami, last week we were talking about how GTA 4 was making the connection to New York more detailed, with real locations and landmarks. Apparently it took about five minutes for some ignorant city officials to start screaming.

How did the N.Y. Post weigh in on the issue? "The latest version of an ultraviolent video game will unleash its murderous mayhem on the streets of New York." Oh, whew, only some murderous mayhem. EVERYBODY PANIC!

There's some responsible journalism for you. Forget that there are plenty of other violent games set in New York City, including True Crime: New York City which is even in the title of the game. Did the Post also think King Kong was really going to destroy the city? "These violent gorillas are a bad example to giant apes everywhere and can only lead to more crushed buildings."

Well at least Mayor Bloomberg is more rational. His spokesman says, "The mayor does not support any video game where you earn points for injuring or killing police officers." Cool. Grand Theft Auto has never even had points, much less awarding them for killing cops. Can we take that as an endorsement then, Mr. Mayor?
