When I think about it, it is actually a complicated set of reasoning that is addmittedly flawed. But there is just someting about the spirit of those games that crosses a line with me. Can't quite put my finger on it exactly but in short the contemporary & gratuitous nature of the game rubs my sensibilities the wrong way.

At the same time, I really don't make any judgements toward people who like playing it. The features of the game are admittedly quite interesting.

In the 30 years I've been a gamer, GTA isn't the only game I've steered clear of. I've pobably passed on a dozen or so games / game series because I had moral issues with them for one reason or another. One of the last games that peaked my interest but passed on for similar reasons was Bully.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
