I really wish that the games industry would just grow up so we can stop writing article about how the games industry needs to grow up. It's kind of depressing that a great game like GTA V gets bogged down by all this crap.

I feel like my teenaged self would hate the soundtrack, I mostly listened to the classic rock station in IV (which is still fucking great) but the classic station in this one is mostly soft rock. It fits the setting well, but I rarely listen to it.
Most played is Radio Los Santos, really like the modern rap they've got in this game. Other than that, Non Stop Pop is surprisingly good, and the DJ is great. Radio Mirror Park has some great music, and West Coast Classic is of course fantastic.
Blue Ark also scores some points, if not for the music, I don't really dig reggae, but for having the funniest DJ. If you haven't heard it, it's some Rastafarian guy who is completely incomprehensible, and it's really funny.
I can't not fund a project by Brad Muir, especially when it sounds as awesome as this! :D
I might have to check this out. While I've never suffered from it myself, I've known far too many people who have depression, including a family member who committed suicide a few months ago. I don't expect this game to cause any huge societal change, but if it can help just a few people really understand what depression is, it seems like it'd be worth it. Our societal view on depression and mental illness sucks and needs to change.
Thanks for the article, this is one of many reasons why Giant Bomb is my favourite website.
As much as I understand his contributions to the credibility of film criticism, I still don't think Ebert was ever that great of a critic. He gave movies poor reviews because he had issues with the morals they represented (notably A Clockwork Orange) which is beyond stupid. Movie reviews are about how good the film is, not whether you where offended or not.
If you want to explain that the film offended you, and as such, you can't give an accurate read on it, fine, but don't call it a bad movie because it upset you. That's childish.
Also, anyone who tries to define what is and isn't art is pretentious. Art is anything that expresses human creativity, and no one gets to refuse that label to something because they don't think it's good enough. To do so is narrow minded, and to refusing to listen to arguments while claiming you're right is even more narrow minded.
I'm not trying to say his death isn't significant and that he wasn't important, but I wish people would stop acting like he represented all that is good about criticism, because I never thought he was a particularly great one.
