Has GTA V gone too far with the torture scene?

2 min read


GTA GTA GTA, it’s all I’m hearing and seeing wherever I go. The game is receiving a ton of positive coverage by the gaming media in general and even more surprisingly the mainstream media is currently not being overly critical of the game, but that could be about to change.

Apparently quite far into GTA, how far exactly I’m not sure but Darryn has been playing for 13 hours and hasn’t come upon it yet, is a scene where you are forced to torture someone for information.

And it’s not a scripted scene like the rape scene in Hotline Miami 2 that was eventually pulled. No in this scene you need to choose you weapon of choice and then inflict some serious pain on the guy tied to the chair to get the information you need.

Apparently this video contains no spoilers, other than the torture scene, but it’s not my video so no promises as I haven’t played this far yet.

So now that we are thinking about torture, how would you torture someone and what’s worse? Having your teeth extracted, peeling of your finger nails or making them watch the Miley Cyrus twerking circus with Justin Bieber playing in the background?

Has GTA gone too far with this scene? I don’t think so but what really gets me is that the conservative nutbags of the world will find this far more acceptable than being able to have sex with someone in game.
