NYT loves GTA

by Matthew Price Modified: April 22, 2013 at 2:18 pm •  Published: April 29, 2008

The world surely has changed.  As noted at the Beat, who would have expected a glowing front-page article about Grand Theft Auto from the New York Times back in the “old days”?

Published by Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto IV is a violent, intelligent, profane, endearing, obnoxious, sly, richly textured and thoroughly compelling work of cultural satire disguised as fun. It calls to mind a rollicking R-rated version of Mad magazine featuring Dave Chappelle and Quentin Tarantino, and sets a new standard for what is possible in interactive arts. It is by far the best game of the series, which made its debut in 1997 and has since sold more than 70 million copies. Grand Theft Auto IV will retail for $60.
