three part epic. I wanted to try and explain to people who haven’t been playing video games for 30 years, why GTA is not just a dumb game about shooting prostitutes.
It just seems so simple, and yet I’m constantly in these big arguments with people on the computer who are talking about, “I would never let my kid do this and this in a video game.” And these are adults who when they were children were dropping acid and going to see the Grateful Dead. I mean, the Grateful Dead is provably shitty music. It’s impossible – it’s theoretically impossible to make a video game as bad as the Grateful Dead. I throw that out there as a challenge.
Quite a challenge. It is, however, possible to make The Grateful Dead interesting: I quite like Grayfolded.
