Government Shuts Down, GTA Follows


If there is one thing the Grand Theft Auto game series gets right, it is the parody of American culture. Which is why it shouldn’t come as a shock when Rockstar Games released a nonworking Online component to Grand Theft Auto V  following the government shutdown.

“Look, GTA has always been about the perfect parody, right? So what better than to release Grand Theft Auto Online as a product in which the people can’t play. Just as the American people cannot use their government now,” explained someone I emailed who claimed to be Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar.

People took to social media to complain about Rockstar’s parody.

OK, so maybe it was just me who actually figured this out at first, but people did complain.


Even Republican John McCain was able to connect the dots shortly afterwards.

In case you doubt me, don’t worry. You can take my word for it. I’m an unknown writer, for an unknown site, and I’m not providing any real evidence to prove it. So basically, I have the edge over major gaming sites, because no one pays me to do this.
