My tattoo is all dried out, cracking, and scabbed over. For those of you that don’t know, when you get a tattoo, it’s fresh for the first two days and then the body’s healing process starts. The tattoo scabs over and then started breaking away, leaving the actual design of the tattoo behind. It’s not too bad really, sometimes it’s a little irritating but it’s not painful by any means.

I’ve restarted the story got GTA V. It is one of the greatest, most complex storylines I’ve ever played in a video game and it’s greater than any movie because of the ability to control outcomes and participate. GTA V, one of the best selling video games of all time, doesn’t get old to me, at least the story doesn’t. Between the characters and the constant shots at society along with the little nuances the creators threw into the game to ensure there’s always more entertainment can’t be beaten.

I’ve replayed this story about 10 times or so, always finding something new in each replay. There are a lot of exaggerations in the game but those are meant to poke fun at our society’s current state. Some examples would be the commercials in the game proposing medical cocaine, the celebrities that all have sex tapes or drug addictions, and the rich-yet-completely-unhappy people that make up the citizens. I love the way it pokes fun at society while still providing a complex and thought-provoking game that doesn’t get old. I cannot wait until GTA IV comes out because Grand Theft Auto games have only ever gotten better so even though the bar is high, I’m sure Rockstar will clear it with ease.

The writing of the game is amazing. From the main characters to the strangers and freaks on the street, everyone is unique. The personalities, mannerisms, and thought processes are all captured consistently throughout the game and it makes you want to be part of the world the characters are living in. If you’ve never played GTA V, I highly recommend it.

P.S. If you’re one of those people blaming video games for kids acting out or committing acts of violence, it’s not the video game, it’s your shitty parenting. Your kids should know the difference between reality and fantasy. If they don’t, something like that was going to happen regardless.
