To play through a GTA game it does not require you to "Slaughter" at all.

Although GTA has the option of killing innocent people, it is not required and not encouraged, gameplay wise you are infact punished for violent behaviour through the police reponse etc.
When the simpsons had the Death Kill Stories thing "You have wiped out the entire planet's population - Level one complete", that's nothing like GTA.
Back to the argument, they've "taken" plenty of parody before but felt this particular one was putting them in too much of a bad light since it shows a violent game being protested against. They don't want people to think their games are something to be protested against.
You're kidding me. All the GTA's have rampages in where you are told to kill everyone. You aren't punished really for killing innocent people, you're given more targets.
Seriously man, that's a totally rediculous statement. I'm not saying GTA is bad, I'm just saying it is a slaghter-fest. Like Halo is a slaghter-fest and Unreal Tournament is a slaughter fest. How can you flat out disagree? I mean c'mon. You're telling me you never take out the peds, or go around running people down. Just because it's not part of the game, it's still there. They don't discourage it at all.
