  • - (voice-over) With Grand Theft Auto V,

  • Rockstar have tried to re-imagine the open-world game

  • in a number of ways.

  • The sprawling... - Oh, that's a video game?

  • - (voice-over) ...modern Southern California.

  • - I could get into Grand Theft Auto.

  • - (voice-over) ...the game features not one

  • but three would-be heroes. - It looks so real.

  • - (voice-over) Michael, a once successful bank robber

  • and now less successful family man.

  • - (son) You know, you're a real [bleep].

  • - (laughing) - (voice-over) Franklin...

  • - "Hey, shut up! Whack!"

  • - (voice-over) And then there's Trevor. - Oh my goodness.

  • He's flushing something down the toilet.

  • - Ooh.

  • - Ew! (Trevor yells)

  • - (voice-over) Introducing three lead characters

  • transforms both the narrative into one interwoven story.

  • - I think I just figured out, this is a game, isn't it?

  • - (Michael) Yeah, I could use a little backup here.

  • - (voice-over) And from one high-octane moment to another.

  • - (Franklin) I got you. (gunshot)

  • - He's smokin' him!

  • (gunshot) - Pretty graphic!

  • - (voice-over) This helps to give missions new levels

  • of diversity and intensity. - Wow, it's so real looking.

  • - (voice-over) It's packed with a vast array of things

  • to see and do. Cars to customize.

  • - Cool. - (voice-over) Planes to fly.

  • Clothes to buy.

  • - Hard to watch. Too many things going on at once.

  • - (voice-over) Nirvanas to pursue. - It's not just violence.

  • - A whole panorama of activity. (in game: commotion)

  • - (voice-over) Everything from driving and shooting...

  • (gunshots)

  • ...to tennis and bike riding... - (snickers)

  • - (voice-over) ...feels fun and responsive.

  • - Ooh. So edgy, the tennis part.

  • - (voice-over) ...a series of increasingly audacious heists.

  • You decide what to spend your money on.

  • Anything from sensible investments, like tattoos and fast cars...

  • - How is a tattoo a sensible investment?

  • - (laughing) - (voice-over) ...to risky ventures

  • like stocks and Los Santos real estate. - This is great.

  • - (amazed) Wow.

  • That's amazing!

  • That's not just shoot 'em and kill 'em

  • and how much gore you can get on the screen.

  • - With a game like this,

  • your kid'll never have to get off the coach.

  • - Did you make this?

  • (movie reel clicks)

  • - (Finebros) So have you ever heard

  • of the the Grand Theft Auto video game series before?

  • - No.

  • - I don't think so.

  • - No.

  • - No, I hadn't.

  • - Oh yeah.

  • - Yes.

  • It's just like one of the biggest video games--

  • if they still call them video games-- ever.

  • - Yeah, I've watched it a little bit. It's pretty wild.

  • - (Finebros) Where have you watched it? - You guys!

  • - (Finebros) From what you saw,

  • what does the point of the game seem to be?

  • - I think there's lots of points.

  • - They don't know what the point is.

  • - Mayhem.

  • - I guess the point is to be the best thief.

  • - To be a successful criminal, I think.

  • - Well, the three heroes are trying to solve crimes.

  • - (Finebros) You play as the criminal. - No heroes?

  • - (Finebros) And the point of the game

  • is to be a successful criminal.

  • - Oh, that should be sort of fun.

  • I've never been one before, but it'd be my first chance.

  • (chuckles) (sinister chuckle)

  • ♪ (dramatic music) ♪

  • - (Finebros) So here is another clip of the three characters

  • to get to know them a little more. - Okay.

  • - Okay.

  • - (blandly) Oh great, I can't wait. My buddies.

  • ♪ (Queen, "Radio Ga Ga") ♪ - (daughter) Dad!

  • Jimmy called me a bitch!

  • - Oh, that's Queen.

  • - (Michael) ...love my family, you know, live the dream.

  • Gimme that. - (daughter grunts)

  • I hate you! - Oh. He's an abuser also.

  • - Oh, I remember when my son told me

  • he hated me for the first time.

  • - (Michael) ...I really want the other stuff too.

  • - You need psychological counseling, sir.

  • - (Michael) I'm rich, I'm miserable. - (chuckles)

  • - (Michael) I'm pretty average for this town.

  • - (therapist) I think you need a new therapist.

  • - Huh, you need a new therapist? You need a new life.

  • ♪ (Jay Rock, "Hood Gone Love It") ♪

  • - Oh, dang.

  • - (sighing) Oh, god. Booty, booty, booty, booty.

  • Shooty, shooty, shooty.

  • - Oh, a pole dancer.

  • - (gang member) Gangsta [bleep]. (gunshot)

  • - They got role models for everybody.

  • - Whoa, way too much.

  • - (gang member) Enjoy them hoes, homie!

  • - (Franklin) Yeah, whatever.

  • ♪ (Waylon Jennings, "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way") ♪

  • - (amused) And you got a redneck. It just doesn't get any better.

  • - (Trevor) I'm new in town. I'm making friends, all right?

  • (fierce yell)

  • - They have a strange way of making friends.

  • - (Trevor mutters) Nice new [bleep], by the way.

  • - (laughs heartily) - (Trevor) Abandonment issues.

  • - (man) Uh, n-n-no, I really don't--

  • - (Trevor) Do you want me to get my dick out again?

  • - (disgusted) Oh!

  • - It's fascinating. They've taken movies one step beyond.

  • - They went cheap on the plots.

  • I mean, can we get out of the gangster mood

  • or the hooker mood?

  • Let's make something of ourselves

  • without having to kill all those people.

  • - (Finebros) So of the three characters,

  • which one would you want to play as? - None.

  • They're just all... doofuses.

  • - I don't like any of 'em. (chuckles)

  • - Franklin might be kinda fun.

  • - Franklin has access to the nicer butts.

  • I've always been an ass man, I don't know what to tell ya.

  • (laughter)

  • - (Finebros) A lot of people have blamed Grand Theft Auto

  • for violent crimes in real life.

  • - Yeah, and so was Judas Priest in Idaho, and they were sued.

  • And blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

  • - (Finebros) Do you buy into that? - Oh, yes, very much so,

  • 'cause kids are so impressionable.

  • - Take a look at the crime rate.

  • People kill people in Chicago like it's a sport.

  • Like it's a video game! (imitates automatic firing)

  • - I mean, it's a good outlet for kids, I think.

  • It's probably healthier for them to do this

  • than it is to deal drugs on the side in high school and college.

  • - If the person is psychologically normal,

  • I don't think it would influence that person.

  • Um, he would realize that, you know, it's fiction.

  • - That whole thing like, "My kid watched this video,

  • subsequently became emo,

  • and went out and shot up his classroom stuff" is like,

  • uh, I think that's supposed to be called parenting?

  • - You know, it's kind of sad, because it gives people an idea,

  • you can get away with that,

  • and you can live a regular life and be a criminal.

  • I gotta tell ya, I spent 20 years as a cop;

  • I never saw one decent criminal that had a decent life.

  • - (Finebros) Does it concern you at all

  • there's a video game out there

  • that's all about criminal activity? - Yes.

  • How do you become anything in life

  • if you fill your head with such dark, ugly, black things of life?

  • - Whatever you do, you take a little bit home of it with ya.

  • - When I was a kid,

  • we shot each other all the time playing army,

  • playing cowboys and Indians.

  • But none of my friends went out and shot anybody in real life.

  • - Oh no. No, no, I've always had a secret desire...

  • for the darker side. (chuckles)

  • (sinister chuckle) ♪ (dramatic music) ♪

  • - (Finebros) Outside of the violence, what are your thoughts

  • about how a video game can have this open world

  • that anything you can think that you would do in real life,

  • you could also do in the game?

  • - That's-- so now we don't have to have real life?

  • And there we go. We just-- we're in our room.

  • - Nobody's gonna get up and go actually do anything,

  • which is just gonna make us even fatter as a society.

  • - "Do I kill somebody today, or do I go to the library?"

  • You know?

  • "Am I gonna drive over somebody and dismember 'em,

  • or should I read a good book?"

  • - (Finebros) And when you have sex with a prostitute,

  • you can kill her after and get your money back.

  • - Great! And you can get infectious diseases too, I bet!

  • (chuckling)

  • - And that's the good side of what you're seeing, yes.

  • You can play the tennis and have the fast cars and all that.

  • But are we giving him the message that in order to do that,

  • I have to do all the criminal activities to get that?

  • - (Finebros) All that said, though, Grand Theft Auto games

  • also have been hailed as some of the most revolutionary

  • and critically acclaimed video games of all time.

  • - What's revolutionary about theft and murder?

  • - Oh no, I get it. It's totally amazing to just look at that.

  • - That I can understand in terms of the technology.

  • - You can put your own tats on and get your new clothes

  • and wander 'round looking for cute booty.

  • Sure, it's revolutionary.

  • - (Finebros) What do you want to say to people out there

  • that are very excited to play this game? - Shame on you.

  • - Get a life.

  • - Don't live through these people! Good gravy! It's fake!!!

  • - Hey, blow some [bleep] up.

  • - Go for it. (Finebros snicker)

  • I'll join you.

  • (sinister chuckle) ♪ (dramatic music) ♪

  • - (Finebros) So finally, are you ever going to play

  • Grand Theft Auto V yourself? - I would.

  • - Yes, yes, yes.

  • - Yeah. I'd try it. I'd love to try it.

  • - No.

  • -No.

  • It's just not my style. I'm more like a Halo guy.

  • - Doesn't ring my chimes, and I cannot see why

  • so many people are attracted to it.

  • - NEVER WILL I PLAY GRAND THEFT AUTO V...

  • IV, III, II, or I!

  • - Here's the problem.

  • I can POUND you from kindergarten, first and second.

  • Third, it got bad. Fourth, I was being wiped out.

  • So what am I gonna do?

  • Play for a minute and a half, and every character is dead.
