Happy Ten-Year Anniversary, Grand Theft Auto!

Has it really been that long?

Grand Theft Auto III. The game that made "sandbox" an acceptable adjective, give years' worth of blathering talking points for the mainstream media and overbearing parents, made me chuckle inside whenever Jessica makes hot coffee, and taught a generation of boys to kill whores and take their money back.

Saturday, October 22nd, marks the ten-year anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, and Rockstar wishes to celebrate with a montage to "O mio babbino caro", because opera makes violence beautiful.
