Stupid Is As Stupid Does: "Grand Theft Auto 5," $1 Billion In SalesSubmitted by zooamerica on Mon, 09/23/2013 - 21:10
The entertainment barometer used to measure exactly just how sick people are shot off the world charts today.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most popular entertainment product ever sold. Millions of people all over the world purchased this game for about $60. After tax, I wouldn't be surprised if the total tally came to $66.66.
This leaves the debut of the Apple Computer, the movie, "E.T.," and the I-phone in the dust in terms of barometric dollar sales.
Without question, and beyond a reasonable doubt games like Grand Theft Auto are created and being used for all the wrong reasons.

I was in to Super Mario Bros. as a kid. I never liked violent video games. Mike Tyson's Punchout was about the most, "violent," game I ever played. After finally figuring out how to beat Soda Popinksi, I beat Tyson too and then moved on to bigger and better things, stopped wearing my pajamas all day, and grew up.
I know adults today who still like to play video games like Grand Theft Auto. I try not to judge them, but can't help myself.
Don't they have anything else better to do? This is what they do in their spare time? Why are they so attracted to...evil, and pay for it?
Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap.
Why would a parent ever buy such a thing for their son or daughter?
Most parents would more than likely be better off buying their kids a rifle or shotgun and teaching them how to use it rather than buying them a video game that will teach them how to act like evil thugs and lawless criminals.
What is Grand Theft Auto and all related super violent video games really all about?
