the main goal of GTA isn't murder.
If there was no murder in this game it would be nothing. GTA V, modern urban environment, taking the worst of society, putting it in a game, because they knew it would sell. Pretty much what I suspect if I looked it up in Websters.
A lot of games we play it is about pixel killing (ARPG's) which I related 0% to vs real killing. I have no shame in killing pixels. In life I'm 0-life on killing people, it could be my prime objective, to leave this planet with zero real murders under my belt. Pixel murders could be in the trillions for I'll I care.
You guys are buying into it, you are blurring lines, they are reprogramming you without you noticing.
Many games I play as the supposed good guy, but in the end, end up killing more, without thought then the bad guy ever did. Somewhat in an ironic way that I'm sure how our armed forces in the realz are looked at after awhile by bystanders in whatever country we are in today, working a hidden agenda masked with "Saving the free world".
