Grand Theft Naughty

Onetime legislative pariah in the videogame industry Grand Theft Auto no longer seems to merit speeches on the floor of Congress or proclamations that rail against its existence. According to the New York Times, few have joined the class action suit from those who claim to have been offended by hidden sex scenes in the game. There has been some moral hand-wringing in other countries in response to the latest game in the series. For example, Thailand halted sales of the game after a murder was attributed to a player who had been influenced by its homicidal message.
