I quite agree - it's just that because GTA has such huge market penetration, even if it's going on everywhere else people always seem to notice the bad stuff in GTA first. Also I think they sort of think it's worse than TV and movies because the player is actually "doing" the bad deed in an interactive environment. But I honestly hope that there are no major controversies over GTA IV because the "Hot Coffee" incident nearly crippled Take Two.
