    It doesn't encourage anything.

    It's just a game. If you text and drive you're an idiot.

    If you let a game make you think it's okay...you're a bigger idiot.

    @ChiefFreeman: feels like this game promotes not texting and driving cause your going to crash, hatred there were no terrible consequences for committing genocide in fact you would gain health from executions.

    I think this game enoucrages texting and driving; rather than stopping texting and driving.

    Oh well I firmly believe that people can text and drive if they have the skills to do it. Not everybody can do it.

    @mikeslemonade: Really? I took this in the way that it discourages it considering how impossible it is to drive well for the drivers displayed in the video. Silliness does not always mean that it is encouraged, much like Postal, it didn't encourage violence despite the silly gameplay.

    To address your last point you are correct, it is most certainly possible and some can function well, but in all situations it is still detrimental to both your perception and reactions. However why people text and drive is still ridiculous, nearly every smart phone within the last 3-4 years if not more is equipped with voice texting and readback which works fantastic(I text rather fast myself and it is still way more efficient than I).

    @Smosh150:

    Eh i text paragraphs sometimes in debates with my friends. By the time you inititate the voice of text thing, I'd probably be done with I need to say if I typed it.

    @mikeslemonade: You can text an entire paragraph in less that 15 seconds? Seriously, if you can text faster than I can speak I will give you some credit, but the entire process is instantaneous to a 2 second delay in recognizing everything I said at once.

    The time it takes to initiate voice on my phone is less than 2 seconds being there is a big button with a microphone where the send button is.

    Guess what I'm never going to buy or click Gamespot? Anything you advertise before your videos...

    That's bullsh*t, I'm searching for a better adblocking solution now. Apparently firefox's ABP just isn't cutting it any more. If I can't get this corrected I'll probably have to stop watching their vids.

    @doozie78: You could just suck it up and support the content creators that you seem to enjoy so much. If you like Gamespot, why not support it? Because right now you're leeching off of their honest work. Ads are the things that will keep the internet free from other paywalls that have been proposed, and I think that they are a much better alternative.

    @oldtobie: 30 second ads are too long. It should be 10-15 max.

    Honestly i'd rather pay GS a yearly fee for all content with no ads. F*ck advertisers, I purposefully avoid buying from them if I can't just block them out completely. If this is the way GS wants to roll then there's no way I'm putting them on a whitelist.

    @doozie78: Well, you're in the minority. Most people would prefer ads. So again, suck it up.

    Kinda doubting anyone wants crappy ads everywhere. I did suck it up, and by suck it up I mean I switched back to Chrome with AdBlock and it worked like a charm. No more ads again! :P

    @doozie78: You're not sucking it up. You're being a baby and leeching off of the work of others. You take and give nothing back. If you were actually paying an annual fee, then fine, but as of now you're just a parasite on the free web.

    @oldtobie: if gamespot was smart they would implement ads into their videos like a lot of companies have been doing lately, thing about that though is those implemented ads have to be good ads that people will actually want to buy, in this sites case video games. I don't come to gamespot to hear about the latest ncis show I come here to hear more about video games.
