Since its first release in 1997 Grand Theft Auto (GTA) has been accused of perpetuating ethnic and sexual discrimination, glamorising violence and inciting real–life crimes.
All the politicians are playing it!
Former Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe is reported to be in line to play the co-founder of Rockstar Games, publisher of the violence-fest Grand Theft Auto game series. According to Hollywood Reporter Radcliffe is in negotiations with BBC Films to star in the true-life account of Sam Houser, and his fight with a Miami …
> Presumably the film will also cover the infamous incident where Rockstar lied about inserting sexual content into one of its games and then falsely blaming hackers.
iirc they disabled the content, but users could use a mod to gain access to it? Been a while, so don't remember for certain, but pretty sure it wasn't actually part of what they intended users to get access to in the game. Also it was basically dry humping, the people involved were still fully clothed because they never finished the scenes
Correct: it required you to change a bit flag to gain access to the previously inaccessible content. This allowed you to be invited indoors by your dates and play a mini sex game to make her orgasm if I recall. It was all good fun, and the art assets and execution were very rough and ready: it had clearly been canned and just left in there, probably because the task to "Remove Sex Game" was very low priority in a tight game dev schedule.
When you do apply the Hot Coffee mod, at least it made sense of the dating part of the game. I had sensed there was something 'missing' in the game-play when you arrived back at your dates house and nothing followed, just a feeling as I played it, like there was some mission in the chain missing.
After the HP series Daniel Radcliffe never need work again, he is rich beyond the dreams of Croseus. Therefore I assume he only does the roles he wants to. In which case
a) he must love GTA and/or
Why doesn't he do some proper indie films with a proper story and proper acting. Oh.....
"Good to see Radcliffe hasn't been typecast".
He hasn't been.
He has acted as lead role in the film My Boy Jack (2007), which, as a film, and character, is so far removed from "Harry Potter" it was even more admirable Radcliffe received positive critiques of his role.
The only arguable link is he, as an officer, is from the middle/upper class. Which of course was J. K. Rowling's sole vehicle for success. She leveraged the English infatuation with the class system with mastery. Like a dog owner temps a dog with irresistible treats.
The dog being of average greater intelligence than the usual Harry Potter fan of course.
