Grand Theft Auto V

I see Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V (2013) has hospitalised its first victim. Having queued until midnight this morning, when the game was officially released, a 23-year-old man was hit on the head with a brick and then stabbed as he made his way home. His attackers stole his newly bought Grand Theft Auto V, as well as his watch and mobile phone. The victim is in a stable condition in hospital (CLICK). It was the same story when version IV was released, with fights in queues and homeward bound gamers being mugged. As you can see from the still shown here, the graphics are superb, but why queue for hours and run the gauntlet of muggers? It's all a far cry from Lemmings, the Dundee-based firm's first video game.
Update: three teenagers - 15,16 and 18 - have been arrested for the violent theft (CLICK).
