“Grand Theft Auto” maker: Video games hate liberals
On Sept. 17, "Grand Theft Auto V," the latest installment in the wildly popular video game franchise, will be released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, perhaps as one of the final major games for the current console generation.
Video games have developed quite a bit in both quality and influence since the "Pac-Man" booths of yore. In 2011, the Economist reported the video-gaming industry was already three-fifths the size of the movie industry. For that reason alone, games deserve serious critical attention -- and that includes looking at their politics.
