Don't Get Me Started


"'A report by Internet firm GMO Cloud characterises the difference as "self-escapism versus self-expression.' 

True or not, Grand Theft Auto is undoubtedly violent, especially when compared to Nintendo's award-winning 'Animal Crossing: New Leaf,' in which players take on the role of a mayor running a rural community. 

By contrast, past versions of Grand Theft Auto have included simulated sex with prostitutes and drunken driving, along with profanity-packed dialogue. Carjacking, gambling and killing are the staples of a game in which players take on the role of a psychopathic killer in fictional Los Angeles.'"


What could be more socially instructive, more physically developing, more spiritually uplifting and exemplary, more all-around self-building, than hours, days, weeks, years, even decades on the couch of good healthy murder, joystick virtual sex with prostitutes, gambling, carjacking and DUI as fast mindfood, all while being a genuine psychopathic killer? Some paths just have to lead upward.

Can't wait for GTA XXV!

Is GTechAssn I out yet? Where can I get it? Has it got a POV psychopathic gardener? I don't think it's available here yet,but it sounds like what I need...

I need Virtual Zen Monk IV, the one where you can choose the karesansui you don't look at when you meditate, or you rake patterns in the garden, and there's a "pause" button for snacks and pee-breaks.

All they have in the store here is III, where you face a wall and every time you draw a deep breath you get smacked across the shoulder blades with a bamboo staff, and you can't log off for 12 hours, no matter how low your blood sugar drops or full your bladder becomes.

I'd dare some of those young Grand Theft Auto punks to sit through a 12 hour session with the Sensi that runs Zen Monk III. They'd come out whimpering like beaten pups.

Hey Deb, let me know if you find version IV... or V might be better, maybe I should wait... these games make me so arbitrary...
