Man Stabbed after buying Grand Theft Auto V
This game must be really good…
A 23 year old man was walking home yesterday morning from an Asda superstore in North West London, after being out shopping for the fifth installment of the Grand Theft Auto game series.
On his way home he was hit with a brick, stabbed and robbed of his purchase by the attackers.
The man was taken to a North London hospital where he is currently in a stable condition.
Scotland Yard authorities say it is unclear as to how many suspects attacked him.
Reviews of the game which include multiple violent game-play elements have been uniformly positive by gaming critics, but there has also been criticism aimed at the game’s lack of a female protagonist and its inclusion of scenes of torture, including scenes where a player has to pull out a victim’s teeth and break their kneecaps. – ouch!
Fun Fact: The game reportedly costs $170 MILLION dollars to make, similar to the most expensive Hollywood blockbusters.
