Default Manipulating both public and media through orchestrating an public outcry

October 23rd, 2012, 16:03
Hello everyone,

well, I must say that I'm ot very much surprised : http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/1…p#.UIaQumJXxI4

In is essense it says that the public GTA outcries were kind of planned in the first place - the public outcry" was planned with the goal in mind to get the game into public's attention through this - and thus into good sales, implicitely, of course.

What disturbs me a bit is rather this quote :

"We always did everything from the perspective of what's going to be the most fun. It just naturally kept pushing us down the darker direction."
Has anyone access to the original article ?

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
