Has anybody noticed that GTA SA actaully has a positive moral message?

The story shows a realistic portrayal of the effects of crack and weed, the effects, the long term consequences, and the problems the drugs trade creates. You also see CJ rejecting offers of drugs several times.

The story hammers home the importance of standing by your family, and it shows the results of gang warfare, and how gun culture feeds the violence.

Sure, the game has you shooting at and killing many many little stick figures, but if anything, it has an anti violence message. Anyone with even half a brain can see how terrible life would be if real people were so trigger happy.

Since its set in the early 90s, and based on the real problems that LA had at the time with gangs, crime, and corrupt police, it doesnt take a big leap of the imagination to see that whilst this makes a great story, its not a situation anyone wants to happen in real life.

As for "hot coffee"? the pictures of women that cavemen scrawled on cave walls were more graphic and erotic.

Cavemen and Cavewoman probably were more vocal about it though >>;
