I know this will be a shock to some but yes, this is about Grand Theft Auto (GTA).
Futureshop was the only retailer in town to offer the sale of GTA at 12:01am this morning, I received my copy at 12:18am. Now this is the first time I have ever gone out of my way to purchase a game as I usually just go out the next day after I make some phone calls to pick it up.
I'm damn near 23 now and try not to stereotype people but I believe I was, out of about 60 people, one of about 10 NON gangster wanabees at this midnight sale. I was in shorts and a tee shirt, while everyone else had baggy pants, hoodies, smokes and cheap plastic bling. Every time someone came out from the store with a purchase people were saying they should shank them and steal their game, or before hand do a drive by to cut the line down. I believe it's people like this that give games like this the bad reputation as it was a little more than annoying and retarded. Seven or eight of these "homeboys" got kicked out for being under age, I chuckled over that.
The only thing that made me laugh was the reference one guy gave as he was being ID'd he said, very loudly, that he had herpes older than 18. That made my night.
One a crappy side note Futureshop never brought in any normal editions of GTA for the PS3 so after waiting in line for about 20 minutes I was pretty much forced to purchase the special edition as it would have felt stupid to wait that long and not purchase the game.
