One of the big talking points of Grand Theft Auto games are their licensed music and radio stations. Rockstar Games was able to acquire real-life talk show host Lazlow Jones along with Saturday Night Live actors Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis and radio hosts Opie & Anthony, among many others, to host the 19 different radio stations, providing music from various artists such as David Bowie, Kanye West, Elton John, ZZ Top, and Bob Marley.
Grand Theft Auto IV has an average Metacritic score of 98/100, making it the highest rated PS3 game. The game received seven nominations from BAFTA and three nominations from GDC and won several Game of the Year awards from gaming media outlets. PSU gave Grand Theft Auto IV a 9.5 with an average user rating of 8.8.
Praised by gamers and criticized by public media, Grand Theft Auto as a franchise is now a household name. With Grand Theft Auto V on the horizon, Rockstar Games continues to expand its massive worlds and push game consoles to their limit, creating a living, breathing world where players have the freedom to play the way the want and do what ever they want.
In an interview conducted in 2010 with BBC. GTA DJ Lazlow Jones, who also served as producer and writer for multiple GTA titles, stated “Our games are not designed for young people. If you’re a parent and buy one of our games for your child, you’re a terrible parent. We design games for adults because we’re adults.”
