So as you can imagine, I have Grown Man Responsiblities now, 24/7/365.  That means my time to play video games ain’t what it used to be.  So yes, I picked up GTA V on (the morning after) opening day, but in the past week plus I’ve played it maybe an hour…TOTAL.  Yep, I’m an adult now.

So I’m checking it out, and it’s cool.  Hey, there’s my city in ‘virtual form.’  Figueroa and Olympic. Hollywood Boulevard.  Santa Monica Beach.  Cool.  Not overwhelmed though like I’m used to with the series.

And then I jump in some random car…and one of my anthems starts up.  Right up there with ‘Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough’, ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ and ‘Wanna Be Startin Somethin’ on my greatest Track 1’s of all time…

So many battlefield scars while driven in plush cars
This life as a rap star is nothin without heart
Was born rough and rugged, addressin the mad public
My attitude was, “Fuck it,” cause motherfuckers love it!

WHATTTTTTTTT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!  DAMN THIS MISSION, WHERE THE TATTOO PARLOR AT?!?!?  EAST COAST AIN’T GOT NO LOVE FOR SAN ANDREAS?!!?!?!?!?!?!

So anyway, after I found my shirt, I played for another half hour or so.  It’s a classic Grand Theft Auto already.  If you’re a fan of the series (and like me) can only, maybe make time for a few games a year at this point in your life, this needs to be one of them.

And on that note, have a good weekend.  WEST SIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
