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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
