"Grand Theft Auto V" Ban Spreads And Gamers Are Getting Really Angry
It's actually about ethics in the treatment of women.
A second major Australian chain has promised to remove Grand Theft Auto V from its shelves because of depictions of violence against women. The move, predictably, enraged the Australian gaming community.
Kmart followed the lead of sister-company Target and announced on Thursday that the wildly popular game - which has been out for more than a year but recently re-released on Playstation 4 - was not suitable for selling in its many Australian stores.
"It's a game that encourages players to murder women for entertainment. The incentive is to commit sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get 'health' points".
