In addition to stealing thousands of hours of time that could have been spent writing book reports on any Stephen King book, the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is now charged with more prosecutable crimes. The city of Los Angeles, the AP reports, is taking the makers of the game to court, charging that there’s porno inside. Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive will have to defend their game against the city’s attorney, who charges that the game is marketed and rated as a “mature” game, not the adults-only tag it should have earned. Attorney Rocky Delgadillo says there’s an embedded mini-game in GTA: SA that has characters in explicit sex acts — as opposed to the main game where they simply kill, deal drugs, and pimp out other characters. The AP estimates the game booked about $600 million in retail sales, $10 million of that in California.
