New Grand Theft Auto to mess with your morality

John Moe Nov 3, 2011

Grand Theft Auto games are exquisitely designed AND reward you for being a horrible person. And now there’s a new one coming.

Rockstar Games released an online teaser for the latest edition of Grand Theft Auto. Version five will be set in the fictional city of Vinewood, which looks a heck of a lot like Hollywood. The video starts out with protagonist narration: “Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.” Just remember, it’s all fake. Smog still happens. Stealing cars is bad. And of course, writing fictional screenplays in a virtual Starbucks is just plain pathetic.
