Grand Theft Auto Brazil – not a real game, but Real Life

1 min read

Alright so technically this isn’t gaming news, but it’s totally related to gaming! And it’s totally awesome as well. I realise that in posting this I am, in some way, contributing to the bollocks-filled argument that “violent games make people violent”, but I defy you to watch the following clip and not think to yourself, “Holy crap! This is exactly like GTA!”

I can guarantee you won’t be able to resist making the comparison. It’s got it all: high-speed car chase in Brazil; lots of cops on bikes; cars crashing into each other; traffic jams hindering an escape; gun fire and police brutality!

I’m also pretty sure that the cops chasing this guy have also played GTA in some form seeing as how at about 0:43 into the clip, a cop runs up to the car and fires a shot through the windscreen at the driver. Then there’s the enraged civilian who starts kicking the perpetrator while he’s down at about 3:08. Good times!

I'm a freelance writer who has somehow managed to convince people to pay me to play video games. By day I work a job, but by night and early hours of the morning, I write about video games. The one job provides a living for my family; the other provides a living for my soul. Dramatic, right?
