MADD Wants 'Grand Theft Auto IV' Sales Stopped
That's right, they don't care about shooting people, stealing cars, running down police officers, soliciting prostitutes, or any of the other fanciful and felonious things you can do in the game. They're worried about the drunk driving, and are calling on Take-Two, the game's publisher, to stop sales of the game. For its part, Rockstar, the game's developer, said this:
"For the same reason that you can't judge an entire film or television program by a single scene, you can't judge 'Grand Theft Auto IV' by a small aspect of the game."
We would tend to agree, and think that the MADD folks would have a lot more to be worried about if they actually played the game. We did, and we think it's fab -- but it's definitely not for young, impressionable types. [Source: AOL News/AP]
