One of the most popular video game series of all time is Grand Theft Auto.  Ever since GTA III, these games changed the gaming world and other games that were pretenders and copiers of the open world gameplay.  The games have been wildly controversial for the amounts of things that you could do in the game (mostly illegal) and the controversy has just made the games more popular.  It was announced that Rockstar is working on a new game however the location is not known and people are wondering if the game will hit PS3/X-box360 or they will wait for their new console to come out.

A)  If you REFLECT on video games in general, Why has such a controversial game series like Grand Theft Auto been so popular with consumers? 

B)  Even though Grand Theft Auto is already a popular game, why do you think the location will make it more popular/less popular?

C)  If Liberty City was New York City, Vice City was Miami, San Andreas was Los Angeles, then what city do you think the next game should take place in and what should they call it?

“Most people play video games to escape from reality for awhile and maybe do things they couldn’t do in real life (Madden, Grand Theft Auto).  The next step in video games is to have them evolve into teaching you actual skills.  While trying to make their game different the makers of Rock Band 3 claim they have somehow managed through a PRO game mode to actually teach you how to play the drums, keyboard and guitar.  Is this a good way to learn how to play actual music instruments?   What would critics of this video game have to say about not needing music classes or lessons because you could learn from a video game?  Or could you REALLY learn how to become a great player from a video game?  Why or why not?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)
