edit: Artikkelen sa først at GTA V fikk den strengeste sensuren, det var feil. GTA V fikk "Mature", noe som ikke er det strengeste man kan få. Artikkelforfatter beklager dette.
Det amerikanske byrået ESRB (US Entertainment Software Rating Board) har fått, gjenomgått og gitt GTA V en veldig streng sensur. Det interessante med denne svært lite overraskende dommen er at de må også gi en begrunnelse for sin avgjørelse. Denne må også offentliggjøres på nett.
Utifra denne begrunnelsen kan man få noen små smakebiter om hva som venter oss den 17 September. Vær bs! Det kan være små spoiler nedenfor.
“In this open-world action game, players assume the role of three criminals whose storylines intersect within the fictional city of Los Santos,” reads the deskription. “Players can switch between each character to follow his storyline, completing missions which often include criminal activities (e.g., stealing cars, executing heists, assassinating targets).”
“Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies (e.g., rival gang members); players also have the ability to shoot non-adversary civilians, though this may negatively affect players' progress as a penalty system triggers a broad police search. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and the game contains rare depictions of dismemberment. In one sequence, players are directed to use various instruments and means to extract information from a character; the sequence is intense and prolonged, and it involves some player interaction (i.e., responding to on-screen prompts).
“The game includes depictions of sexual material/activity: implied fellatio and masturbation; various sex acts that the player's character procures from a prostitute—while no nudity is depicted in these sequences, various sexual moaning sounds can be heard. Nudity is present, however, primarily in two settings: a topless lap dance in a strip club and a location that includes male cult members with exposed genitalia in a non-sexual context. Within the game, TV programs and radio ads contain instances of mature humor: myriad sex jokes; depictions of raw sewage and feces on a worker's body; a brief instance of necrophilia (no nudity is depicted).
“Some sequences within the larger game allow players to use narcotics (e.g., smoking from a bong, lighting a marijuana joint); cocaine use is also depicted. Players' character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence. The words “f**k,” “c*nt,” and “n**ger” can be heard in the dialogue.”
