BuzzFeed has uploaded a video capturing the reaction of several feminists who are playing Grand Theft Auto V, which is also their first experience with a Grand Theft Auto game.
The result is pretty much what you’d expect. “If you were going through your formative years and this was your only experience with women, it would be really damaging and weird,” one player said after a visit to a strip club within the game. Other players admitted they had fun despite the nature of the content, and the fact that the game lacked any strong female characters.
GTA V shipped more than 45 million copies worldwide to date, including 10 million on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is likely to grow further still, as the PC release on April 14 quickly became the most played non-Valve game published on Steam, with more than 300,000 people playing the game simultaneously.
