Here's one good and one sad GTA V related story

The sad story is REALLY sad

First the good news by way of Breakfast Television: Two teen brothers helped attempt to save the life of an elderly man trapped in his home due to a fire. 17-year-old Colten and 16-year-old Luke were on their way back home after purchasing Grand Theft Auto V at a midnight release when the heard a fire alarm going off inside a home.

They went to investigate the source when they heard the homeowner crying for help. One of the brothers immediately called 911, while the other broke down the front door to try and save the man's life. The smoke was too thick for him to enter, but thankfully firefighters arrived quickly on the scene.

This is the part where you think see GTA isn't a bad influence on society until you read this:

Telegraph reports that a 23-year-old was attacked in London for his copy of Grand Theft Auto V. He too was on his way home from a midnight release when the victim was hit with a brick, stabbed, and then robbed of several items including GTA V. He's currently in stable condition in a north London hospital.

Videogames, man.
