I voted neither, but then I remember Niko did alcohol. Keep it as alcohol only, cause if the next guy does drugs, GTA would probably be banned.

Don't care.

They'll stick to drinking and leave the pot to other characters.

You could take some drugs in Vice City. Was Vice City banned because of this?

But if you look at GTA now, its really lucky GTA hasnt been banned. Luckily for us in England, we dont have Jack Thompson, or Aussies in charge of the gaming council. But sooner or later GTA is going to be banned totally somewhere in a major country.

I'm sure R* will work it out, if need be, to prevent getting banned completely.

He doesn't know. His mind is a lost cause. i stick with what I said. No point in releasing a game that gets banned. Especially a "major" country as he put it.

There should be a mini-game which you can only make sense of if you're very drunk/high.

... actually, that's a brilliant idea. If Rockstar takes it, I'm suing them...

I'm sure the game wont get banned. I just dont want R* to take that risk. It wouldnt result in the game being banned, but it will probably be delayed..

No it wouldn't. You could smoke joints and bongs as well as knock back 40s in Saint's Row, then drive around drunk as high a motherfucker. Maybe if your main character starts smoking crack or something yeah, but not something like pot.

I just looked up Saints Row found out it was called to be banned. It wasnt over here. GTA4 was called to be banned over here. Saints Row wasnt. I can see where you're coming from now.

Either way, people always petition games for banning and they never get banned.

I think it would make the storyline a fair bit less detailed if we could become heavily addicted to drugs. If you think about it, if Claude did Spank and CJ was a junkie to Smoke's factor it would have completely made them a hypocrite. Even in Chinatown wars the lead didn't actually do drugs because he didn't want to end up like his father. The only way to evade that type of hypocracy would be to A: Have the game track your usage and generate his or her stance based on that or B: Make the storyline vague about this sort of hotbutton issue which is in every single gta.

It is interesting from a social perspective but frustrating as a gamer to think about the status and special scrutiny that video games receive. It is wrapped up in a false assumption that video games are just for kids and, despite a rating system in place, there is still this fucked up resistance to letting games properly explore adult content. For instance Hollywood movies aren't subject to the same concerns of being banned because the hero does drugs.

I have my character in Saints Row 2 smoke and drink to punctuate and celebrate the accomplishment of tough missions or the purchase of properties. There is something appropriate and realistic about getting stoned in your crib while hanging with your homies! thumbup.gif

What would be interesting, I think, would be the ability to increase your tolerance for drugs and alcohol so that you could drink more and the effects would last longer. Additionally, aside from making the world blurry and spinning, there could be degrading effects on auto-aim and controller sensitivity (rather than, say, just forcing your car to swerve in the wrong direction!). This would effectively dictate that a character parties on his own time but shows up for work (albeit, cold-blooded murder) sober and at his best! biggrin.gif

Incidentally, I started a somewhat related discussion in the RDR forums called "Hard Liquor and Loose Women". Why don't some of you get on that bandwagon (or off the wagon, as the case may be) and weigh in over there?

It seems like the GTA main characters are always sort of anti-drugs. even though they have no problem selling them. I guess CJ was the only one that was openly against selling drugs, but I think its always been a GTA thing to have the protagonist drug free.
