Why GTA V is so much more than a game about crime!

Recommended Posts

You don't have to be violent in GTA!

Copilot: Captain have you ever flown a 777 before?

Captain:Nope,but we got a strong tail wind and the bar in Hong Kong stays open till 5am, so lets kick the tires, light the fires and, get the hell outta here.

I enjoy the GTA series, but it is a game about crime. The eye candy just makes it a pretty looking game about crime.

I'd believe you more if you stopped at a red light once in a while LOL...

My Internet is pretty slow so I was trying to save on upload time.

I made a video today showing the underwater part of the world and it's jaw droppingly beautiful 

Don't forget rape...

 

 

Interesting talking to someone that works for government dealing with people who commit some pretty serious disturbing crimes. sexual etc. All have common theme and is noted. They watch and play violent movies, video games and pornography.

Hmm. I've played these games all my life and haven't commited any crimes beyond speeding. It has to do with the person and who they are not the games they play. Chances are these same folks would have committed these crimes even if they had never played a video game or watched a violent movie

Bollocks! What a ridiculous statement!

 

I've played GTA, COD, Battlefield etc, and I watch porn. I haven't committed any such crimes, nor has it ever crossed my mind.

Not my opinion but facts of those that study such individuals. Not the only ones who have reached this conclusion.

 

----–-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

If you enioy singing, you sing.

If you enjoy car racing, you watch it.

If you enjoy opera, you watch it.

 

If you hate opera, you won't watch it.

If you hate golf, you won't watch it.

It you hate violence, you won't watch it or play violent video games.

If you hate the thought of a woman getting raped, you won't play video games or watch footage of this nature.

If you hate the sexualisation of women, you won't watch degrading pornography.

 

 

 

Interesting what happens when swap the wont with a want and the hate with love.

 

 

Don't believe everything you read. Academic papers and studies are setup to get results on hypotheses. You can prove anything if you have the right set of circumstances.  Look deeper into those papers and specifically those who were studied and you will find deeper underlying issues completely not associated with the forms of entertainment they chose.

 

And in terms of OP - GTA is amazing. The world they have built I could spend hours and hours in...


Thanks and Regards,

Ken Dolbey

Argument from authority. IE the person making the argument has X amount of experience, degrees etc, and hence must be right. Of course, in such cases, the person citing said conclusions can choose very carefully which "authorities" to reference.

This.

 

While certain criminals may watch certain movies, for example, not everyone watching those movies is bound to be a criminal. Neither does that correlation prove (already/on its own) that certain movies trigger a particular criminal behaviour.

Only those who enjoy seeing a woman bashed and raped as 'entertainment', make such arguments.

 

I have respect for women and hate violence so avoid that kind of 'entertainment'. But if you enjoy 'entertainment' that bashes and rapes women, as you must of course, keep playing. I won't stop you.

You do what you enjoy doing. :)

 

Ad Hominem attack. You really are proceeding by the numbers, aren't you?  :blink:

Jon, in all seriousness:

 

I have a military airplane in my FSX hangar; does that make me a militarist, a warmonger, trigger-happy, or all of the above?!?

 

I fly that plane for its unusual flight model and its ease of system handling.

 

I would kindly ask you, Jon, to read the topic title again (accentuation is mine):

 

"Why GTA V is so much more than a game about crime!"

I don't "enjoy" seeing a woman "bashed and raped", and I'm pretty sure that the vast majority of the AVSIM membership think likewise. However, if we did see something like that, it isn't going to suddenly turn us into murdering rapists.
