Grand Theft Auto V's Rating Summary Details Drug Use, Drunk Driving, More [Possible Spoilers]

Posted on Tuesday, August 20 @ 22:00:06 Eastern by

Rockstar's latest open-world opus... has already been shown to the ESRB! Those lucky ducks got to see more gameplay than anyone! Uncut too! Oh mannnn, the game's achievements were recently outed and now this? When am I ever gonna get my hands on this game?

Anyway, are you over 18? You might need to be to play Grand Theft Auto V because there's all kinds of naked bits in it. There's blood and gore too. Sex. Drug use. It's all really quite horrible, atrocious, bad for kids, but you know who's going to play this game right?

Kids. Have at the game's ESRB Rating Summary below and then try to tell me that kids won't wanna play this game:

Rating Summary: In this open-world action game, players assume the role of three criminals whose storylines intersect within the fictional city of Los Santos. Players can switch between each character to follow his storyline, completing missions which often include criminal activities (e.g., stealing cars, executing heists, assassinating targets). Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies (e.g., rival gang members); players also have the ability to shoot non-adversary civilians, though this may negatively affect players' progress as a penalty system triggers a broad police search. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and the game contains rare depictions of dismemberment. In one sequence, players are directed to use various instruments and means to extract information from a character; the sequence is intense and prolonged, and it involves some player interaction (i.e., responding to on-screen prompts).

The game includes depictions of sexual material/activity: implied fellatio and masturbation; various sex acts that the player's character procures from a prostitute—while no nudity is depicted in these sequences, various sexual moaning sounds can be heard. Nudity is present, however, primarily in two settings: a topless lap dance in a strip club and a location that includes male cult members with exposed genitalia in a non-sexual context.

Within the game, TV programs and radio ads contain instances of mature humor: myriad sex jokes; depictions of raw sewage and feces on a worker's body; a brief instance of necrophilia (no nudity is depicted).

Some sequences within the larger game allow players to use narcotics (e.g., smoking from a bong, lighting a marijuana joint); cocaine use is also depicted. Players' character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence. The words “f**k,” “c*nt,” and “n**ger” can be heard in the dialogue.
