    One thing you never hear about when people talk about GTA is throughout the whole serious there has been a serious vein of comedy throughout each game. Its not all mindless violence, its more of a lampooning of stereotypical mindless violence. Not to mention their radio jokes, and sketches are on par with any comedy album I have ever heard.

    Do you honestly think something like this would be even remotely possible without a disclaimer like that?

    You're not signing away your children, just whatever recording you make.

    Wow. Sounds like the kind of thing I'd love to be a part of.

    What exactly do you object to? Do you think someone who submits a throwaway joke should have a stake in the game or profits, or be able to claim the right to withdraw their submission at a later date (say after a million copies have been sold) because they changed their mind?

    I know some companies have pulled shady contests that sould similar (e.g. send us your ideas for a video game, if we make it we'll send you a t-shirt), but this ain't that.

    Why not stream the radio real-time to the players while they're playing GTA4?

    That would be amazing. Have an in-game radio station run by real people somewhere which you can call any time. The XBOX360 is perfect for that (headset).

    Why not?


Always leave room to add an explanation if it doesn't work out.
