Wow, $1 Billion in sales. That is incredible.

When I get the Play Station 4 later this holiday season, this will be one game worth getting.

The trailer looks very impressive. I am sure the game is. :)

There is an interesting article in kotaku in regards to parents who buy the M rated game for their very small kids.

The game is rated M due to heavy violence, language and other things small kids should not be exposed to.

I suspect most parents have no clue and only buy it since junior wants to play it. Any thoughts?

JJJ, That link was a good read ty for sharing!

My wife and I bought this game as a birthday present for my youngest son (he turned twenty in Aug.) and the adult content in GTA V is definitely mind blowing and probably not everyone's cup of tea but I can honestly say I love it. I went with him to the midnight release and I believe I was one of the oldest in line but happy to report I didn't see anyone under maybe the age of 16 or 17. Unlike when I've gone to other midnight releases, like Halo or COD where I remember seeing kids as young as 7 or 8 waiting inline with their parents on a school night.

Being able to do all the things society looks down on over and over again, road ragging on bad drivers, hitting the clubs or picking up hookers for a little strange and as the name implies taking anything you desire along with so many other things w/o the risk of divorce/death or going to prison forever is just what the doctor ordered for me.

Open at your own risk' you've been warned!

I will get this game. I am over 40 so no issues. :D

However, I will keep the game hidden and locked since I have small kids and will not play the game while they are around.. :nono:

Thanks for the Easter Eggs. It will take me some time to get to playing since kids can't be around but hey, that is what parenthood is about.. sacrifice! :eek:lddude:
