I find it disturbing that the group who began the anti-GTA campaign were able to get 46,000 signatures so easily by merely misrepresenting one of the most widely known game series in the world. If you read the description they gave of the GTA5 it's hard to believe they're actually talking about the same game. It seems like the work of a highly-organised, militant, special-interest group using an anti-gaming platform to push their agenda.

We all need to sign this. It will not end in AU. They are already reaching out to other countries to have the game removed from the shelves.

They take them off the shelves meanwhile they sell movies with just as bad content. Makes no sense...

@Ghostdog201 And who decides what is bad? That's essentially the problem with censoring

"radical agendas of equality" That is what Stalin said. It's nothing to do with equality.

Top five news stories suggestions:

Saints Row IV The Re-elected Edition is scheduled to coming out next year.

The Saints Row series perhaps supports women, minorities and diveristy more than any other game/series.

GTA V Sucks, banned or unbanned.

Isn't Australia a little bit more uptight about violence than America?

I think it's very easy to shape public opinion with propaganda.

GTA V has a slightly negative stigma attached to it, especially with non-gamers.

Someone takes a few pictures to support their point of view and stands out in front of a store and asks a few high sounding quesitons to elicit a "yes" response

Then the person (who doesn't know any better) signs a petition, but doesn't know the facts, just like a political ballot.

GTA V isn't worth sacrificing good public relations. It sucked anyway most of the time.

It's been over a year since I played GTA V. It wasn't that great. You'll have a much better time playing something else.

You should be very happy GTA V isn't available for purchase at some stores.

@SaintsRowLA I'm not a fan of computer violence, nor politics... But as a creation and a game that is just lots of fun (surely, that's what we're about in the gaming community?) I can't think of anything that has topped GTA in terms of entertainment and sheer wonder in it's scale and polish. It's been given 10/10 for good reason on so many sites! In my opinion, GTA 5 is one of the most amazing games ever created. Ever. But, if you don't like my opinion, feel free to formulate your own :-)

How is this for a comment?

Chris. You are a great guy. You're cheerful, bright, happy infectiously positive.

And you're one of the few males that doesn't make me want to throw up all over the place.

Keep up the good work.

Chris says, "I love you". I'm surprised all the culturally bred GameSpot male cockroaches in the comments section isn't saying all sorts of nasty things about you.

But, my truly love and loyaly belongs with Jess.

Great show, great job, great to see you as a stand in.

Holy S*** Wat...shisname is right! It IS December.

Kind of a bummer about Target and Kmart but as long as its not banned in the country (as so many seem to be) and others are selling it, who cares? More business for other stores and I guess Kmart's and Target's customers have less to complain about while the stores give the impression of giving a ...hoot.

...was it Watters? Whatters. whitters, whilmer, whatjamacalit, ...whatever

Every GTA and many other games have potential violence against women. If you're going to pick one game as an example to be removed from shelves, you should go ahead and remove every other game.

@eric_metal Man, that game was disturbing.

*Awkward moaning* *falls on a spike* *falls off a cliff* *more moaning*

I've never seen a female in a game get tortured that badly.

I don't think anyone blinked an eye for Tomb Raider, though. Not even feminists.


What's with all of this prostitute killing anyway? Are we back in the San Andreas days? Who does this anymore? Why so much emphasis on something so trivial? Okay, a little digital prostitute dies. Big deal. How about trying to save the real drug-addicted prostitutes in this cruel world?


I'm sick of all the Anti-GTA warmongers. If I was an Aussie - I could care less about this situation. I buy all of my games online. Who purchases games at Kmart? Jeez. It's like early 2000's all over again. Get with the times people.

Haha. No doubt right. As far as prostitutes go, I only beat their ass to get my money back. I don't actually put a bullet in their head cuz that would be cruel. Besides, i might need her later on to get my health up again. Lol
