We all know that Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto franchise is the one to point at when you’re a complete and utter moron trying to blame inexcusable real-life violence on video games. Rockstar knows this too. Hell, they even enjoy it. There’s a reason it’s the one of the biggest entertainment titles in the history of mankind. People just love being naughty, even if they won’t admit it to your face, and GTA lets you be a little (OK, a lot) naughty without breaking any real laws.
Most are fully aware video games are harmless, and that a ridiculously large amount of people play them—including the ultra violent ones like GTA—without running out their front door and shooting everyone in sight after playing. Sure, there’s a few people who do. But there’s a whole lot more dark and twisted going on in those peoples’ worlds than just a gaming hobby. The people who do try to blame violence on video games are usually psychotic middle-aged soccer moms who’d rather point the finger than, you know, do a little basic parenting, or older folks who stare dumbfounded at Fox News all day long like it’s the latest episode of Everybody Loves Hypnotoad.
In the latest and one of the more fascinating videos from the popular REACT YouTube channel, a group of older folks play the latest game in the series, Grand Theft Auto V. And the results might just surprise you. Watch the video here below.
Rockstar Games has decided to delay the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V, and some eager fans are not at all happy about it.
After a lengthy wait for word on a PC release of the game, it was revealed in November—about a year after the console version was released—that it would finally be made available this month. A couple of weeks from today, actually. But now the developer has decided to push that back a couple of months to March 24th.

It’s a slow news day, as you might have expected, so why not watch some more remakes of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer!
This time it’s a pair of trailers that were remade using Grand Theft Auto V as well as its online multiplayer option Grand Theft Auto Online. One uses player-created characters and the other uses more familiar faces from the game.
Heists were a big part of Grand Theft Auto V, and were expected to be a big part of the game’s companion multiplayer option, Grand Theft Auto Online, as well. But the online heists never came, and fans have been desperately awaiting their arrival for well over a year now.
Now, finally, it appears that Rockstar Games is ready to unleash these heists upon the masses. An official Heists Trailer has been released, and a release window is known. Click on over to the other side to check it out.
Are you sick of Grand Theft Auto V videos yet? I’m sure not!
GTA is the absolute poster child for all things evil in video games, and soccer moms everywhere just love to use it as an example of games that are turning our precious little children into soulless serial killers. Which is why it’s always fun to see videos from the game that are minimally violent, like this nature documentary!
Just as the headline says, this video is a 20-minute scenic drive in Grand Theft Auto V. Seriously. Nothing more, just a drive. So why share this? A couple of reasons, actually. First, because sometimes you just need to stop what you’re doing, turn off the radio, and drive. I find myself doing this often in GTA games, because they’re so much fun to explore and enjoy. Second, because videos like these show how insanely great the world created by Rockstar Games is (side note: this video covers a very small part of the very large map), and it’s worth praising repeatedly. You can watch the video below.
