    Don't be a menace to South Central while drinking your hot coffee in the hood: an overhyped video game.

    I already know that no one will agree with me but I have to be vocal about my opinion of this game and its franchise: You all hyped it way too much, ok? GTA is not the second **** of Christ. It's not even that good. GTA ... Read Full Review
