Middle East gamers thank regional censors for protecting them from horrors of GTA V

Gulf video game fans relieved they won’t have opportunity to be exposed to high levels of violence

Today’s hotly-anticipated launch of Grand Theft Auto V has sparked a flurry of appreciation from Middle East gamers grateful to local censors for banning the title and protecting them from its untold horrors.

“I’m just delighted that I’m not going to have to face the extreme depictions of violence and storylines of a sexual nature running throughout this technically outstanding game likely to become the biggest selling title of all time,” said Rami Bachman, a gamer in Dubai, adding that he had refrained from looking at any reviews or images posted online to prevent them having a psychological effect on his personality.

    I can understand these statements coming from parents. But from gamers as well, it doesn’t make sense. I don’t believe that anyone shouldn’t have control over his own self to take the right choices. “I’m just delighted that I’m not going to have to face the extreme depictions”…..Seriously!!! Even if it is not censored, no one is forcing anyone to face something they don’t want. I do not see the difference between this game and a lot of movies we watch that include all violent and sexual scenes. At least this is coming from a game with fictional characters. Not from celebrities, who unfortunately some people look up to.
