I had nothing to do with the development of GTA:SA. I do have a personal opinion on the Hot Coffee situation, but I’m going to keep it to myself – there is more than enough discussion going on. I haven’t seen anything totally surprising: it’s mostly the same old arguments and points of view all over again. Self-regulation is important, was this an accident or a marketing ploy, why go nuts over sex and not violence (my fave), why not go nuts over, say, God of War, politicians are involved to score points, Jack Thompson is a weirdo, new legal grey zone around modding, controversy meta-analysis.

Did I miss something?

I found
this funny (via Reality Panic).

    No, you didn’t miss anything. Greg went off (twice), but that’s Greg. And I think even he knows that this is a perpetual problem in the gaming industry, going back to Running With Scissors and Postal. There’s always going to be an anti-hero game company more than willing to make a buck bucking the system and fucking things up for everybody else. Which I guess is how everyone knows whether they’re cool or not.
