GTA 4 - DWI “Doppy” Idea

In the most recent episode of Bonus Round, Michael Pachter, can be quoted as calling the DWI Mode in GTA as “a doppy idea.” Apparently, you can get drunk in the game and proceed to cause more havoc around the world of GTA. Nice, better here than out in the real world right? Not so sure about that, as I’m sure politicians will eat this opportunity up and hurt gamers and other games world wide from this alone.

Chris Morell of GP was also on this panel, and though we know that this game is geared towards adults, I love how he kept saying that this title was for “kids”. Well, since kids are all under 18 Chris, you’d have to wonder who the game is really intended for?

    It has to be in Rockstar’s marketing plan to include controversial things in the GTA releases. That way more people talk about it and more “rebellious” people buy it.

    Imagine if a GTA came out and there wasn’t anything over the top? It would be the death of the franchise.

    You’re right .. it just wouldn’t be GTA if it didn’t have something controversal … and I guess the whole lot of them would be out of a job to. I could say the same thing about many a franchise as well - MGS with no exclamation marks or over the top cut scenes wouldn’t be the same either. Still, you’d have to wonder if they could come up with something more creative than DWI driving though?

    this is just giving more ammuniton for the fight against m rated games. Im interested to see how they justify you having to drive drunk in this game.

    i believe the justification lies within the genre of the game .. as in, its free roaming, open world, do you what you want-so why can’t I get drunk and drive type of game. :)

    Whats interesting is that recent report that showed M rated games are appearing less and less on the consoles! DWI in a game does nothing to help developers now. Some gamers may think this is cool, but I know devs are slapping their forehead in disgust!
