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!

    It really made me think of GTA, especially when he reverses and drives over the motorcyclist. Didn’t he learn though? Carry at least some sort of weapon! Besides, how you gonna drive a car through such a small gap? Stop, get out, Triangle the SUV and drive further. I mean, that’s how i would have done it.

    That’s what happens when Roman phones you from across
    the bloody map to take him out within the next couple
    of minutes.

    And then you wake up outside the hospital without your
