GTA V release stirs content outrage
The release of Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has renewed outrage over the game's content.
The popular game depicts drug use, violence and sexual content. The updated version of the game also allows a first-person view of graphic sex with a prostitute, leaving little to the imagination.
The game is rated "Mature" for 17-year-olds and older. Dr. John Kelly, a child psychiatrist, says it's not good for younger teens to play.
"Not that it leads to violent behavior...It normalizes the behavior," Kelly says.
Rockstar Games President Sam Houser said in a statement, "This was our chance to push Grand Theft Auto V even further, adding a new first-person mode and working to make the most of the power of the new consoles."
