Rockstar dating show

It has garnered critical praise, registering a staggering 98/100 average on review aggregate site Metacritic.

It is a video game that transcends its medium to become a bona fide cultural behemoth, attracting the kind of mainstream attention usually reserved for only the biggest cinematic or literary releases. GTAV is a sensational video game and a marvellous feat of technical engineering.

Grand Theft Auto has won legions of fans around the world, and as many critics, for game play in which winning depends on acts such as carjacking, gambling and killing.

It also includes simulated sex with prostitutes and drunk driving.

” To my mind, at least, Rockstar are asking similar questions about the treatment of women in our culture. However, perhaps the great tragedy of GTAV is that too much of its audience is comfortable with it.

I commented to a friend that I was concerned about the treatment of women within the game, that there were few female characters drawn with any depth and that it felt a deliberate decision to avoid an attempt to do so. As I continued on in the game, I started to make my mind up on that reason.

Petit was called, amongst other things, a "moron", while another said there was “no point in giving GTA to a woman to review.

Their input is worthless.” How pathetic that women are still treated this way.

What, you may reasonably ask, do I have to say of any worth on this issue? But what I do know is how wretched I felt as the game often coerced me into actions that degraded women.

How could I know what it’s like to be sidelined in the manner GTAV seems to do to women? I felt dirty driving around that paparazzo; the idea of a mini-game that effectively asks you to grope a stripper repels me, I began to feel suffocated by a testosterone-addled life of deviancy. Grand Theft Auto V is relentlessly misanthropic, holding up a skewed mirror to our entertainment and industries and asking us to peer into the ugly reflection.
