New York City authorities are upset at the new Grand Theft Auto being set in their city. According to the NY Daily News (via Game Politics and /.), the city councilman and other city authorities have spoken out in condemnation of GTA IV. The city councilman had this little gem to add:
“Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in America would be like setting Halo in Disneyland.”
With Rockstar Games’ headquarters located in New York, this debate is just getting started. Can’t wait to see the lower east side activists demonstrating on Broadway.
