There's simply too much violence nowdays; this and the increasing sexual content in everything are the type of things that give freedom a bad name*.
GTA was fun some time ago, but honestly, the games lack a lot of things, and they are indeed overrated. When the whole "Hot Coffee" issue begun, I used to support them, but it's too much now. If they keep playing with fire, they are going to get burnt (or a similar Cliche-tish phrase).
*I am aware of how...ehm...totalitarian[?] this sounds.
