Inside the making of a videogame that defined a generation: "Grand Theft Auto"
"Grand Theft Auto" is one of the biggest and most controversial videogame franchises of all time. Since its first release in 1997, "GTA" has pioneered the use of everything from 3D graphics to the voices of top Hollywood actors and repeatedly transformed the world of gaming. Despite its incredible innovations in the $75 billion game industry, it has also been a lightning rod of debate, spawning accusations of ethnic and sexual discrimination, glamorizing violence, and inciting real-life crimes. "Jacked" tells the turbulent and mostly unknown story of "GTA"'s wildly ambitious creators, Rockstar Games, the invention and evolution of the franchise, and the cultural and political backlash it has provoked.Explains how British prep school brothers Sam and Dan Houser took their dream of fame, fortune, and the glamor of American pop culture and transformed it into a worldwide videogame blockbusterWritten by David Kushner, author of "Masters of Doom" and a top journalist on gaming, and drawn from over ten years of interviews and research, including firsthand knowledge of "Grand Theft Auto"'s creators and detractorsOffers inside details on key episodes in the development of the series, including the financial turmoil of Rockstar games, the infamous "Hot Coffee" sex mini-game incident, and more
Whether you love "Grand Theft Auto" or hate it, or just want to understand the defining entertainment product of a generation, you'll want to read "Jacked" and get the real story behind this boundary-pushing game.
