Get High In GTA V
ESRB listings can often be amusing reads. Sometimes they’ll reveal little details about a game and sometimes it’s depressingly hilarious to see just the sort of things the ratings group considers when formulating their rating for a game. The ESRB listing for GTA V is rife with curious little details and here’s a little spoiler – that title isn’t a play on words. You really can get high in the game.
As spotted by Kotaku, the rating listing mentions never-nude sex, drunk driving and smoking weed as some of the games more questionable activities. I have some questions regarding those. Can you fly a jet while inebriated and if so what is it like? Is it possible to have a fully-clothed orgy? Could I branch out into meth? Weed is a gateway drug after all. Oh, that would be amazing, a drug addiction leveling tree.

Below is the full listing which contains mild spoilers but is seriously worth the read.
“Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies (e.g., rival gang members); players also have the ability to shoot non-adversary civilians, though this may negatively affect players’ progress as a penalty system triggers a broad police search. Blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and the game contains rare depictions of dismemberment.”
“In one sequence, players are directed to use various instruments and means to extract information from a character; the sequence is intense and prolonged, and it involves some player interaction (i.e., responding to on-screen prompts).
“The game includes depictions of sexual material/activity: implied fellatio and masturbation; various sex acts that the player’s character procures from a prostitute–while no nudity is depicted in these sequences, various sexual moaning sounds can be heard. Nudity is present, however, primarily in two settings: a topless lap dance in a strip club and a location that includes male cult members with exposed genitalia in a non-sexual context.”
“Within the game, TV programs and radio ads contain instances of mature humor: myriad sex jokes; depictions of raw sewage and feces on a worker’s body; a brief instance of necrophilia (no nudity is depicted).”
“Some sequences within the larger game allow players to use narcotics (e.g., smoking from a bong, lighting a marijuana joint); cocaine use is also depicted.”
Finally, “players’ character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence” and “the words “f**k,” “c*nt,” and “n**ger” can be heard in the dialogue.”
I don’t know about you but those add up to make a pretty entertaining sounding game. And those aren’t necessarily main points of the game even. They could be completely arbitrary side activities.
