Grand Theft Auto (Sports, Games and Toys)

"Please don't do your story on how I like to play Grand Theft Auto. Make me sound less frivolous."

The Grand Theft Auto series, developed by Rockstar Games, is pretty much the best videogame series of all time, next to all the other games we gamers use that hyperbole for. It's characterized by its mostly non-linear, mission-based gameplay, which allows the player to explore the city and have boatloads of fun with no consequence. What other game allows you to steal cars, shoot pimps, bang hookers, light pedestrians on fire, beat law officers to death with baseball bats, launch rockets at helicopters, sell drugs to minors, run people off the road, and rampage through the city IN A TANK? It's been criticized for its violent content; angry parents believe that violent videogames lead to violent behavior. Well, Apollo had the most violent childhood you could imagine, and that was before he became a GTA fan. So maybe it's the other way around.
