Professional busybodies urge recall of GTA: San Andreas.

Leaving aside the essential waste of time that this is, and leaving aside that in addition to the clear "mature" marking on the ratings box you get carded for buying this game (I did, and I'm 35), and leaving aside that there's no chance in hell Rockstar will recall this game as long as it's making them piles and piles and piles of money...

Leaving all that aside, isn't it awesome how a game where you can literally butcher everyone you see with a chainsaw, a game where many of your missions involve shooting people, blowing people up and setting people on fire, a game in which the whole point is to become the most ruthless, savage killer you can -- the parents' groups and pandering senators only REALLY get het up when they discover there's a possibility that while playing it you might get to see your character have sex with his girlfriend?

Man, I tell you. I never get tired of defending GTA, because it's the best game ever. But it's become the new Piss Christ. Carl Johnson is the Karen Finley of the new millennium.
