GTA 5 rightfully earned some of the highest review scores we've ever seen for a video game, and for just about all the reviews that were written, they displayed deep thought and ultra-awareness of GTA 5.
When we had the chance to talk about GTA 5 with Steve Ogg, he told us how he believes games are an art form, but also how surprised he was at the intelligent reviews from the gaming outlets who published them on Sept. 16th.
"I remember this debate on CBC and they were talking about 'are video games an art form?' The answer is, of course it is. It's a creation and my God you see this world that's created and it blows me away as much as when I go to the Met and see a beautiful painting. That's what I see in this world.
"Honestly, I've been really surprised at how little negative attention there has been. Even when the reviews first came out, I thought 'wow,' these were intelligent reviews.
"I'm not in the gaming world, I've never been a part of it, I don't follow them, I never have played them. I knew GTA was Grand Theft Auto. But I was really surprised with the intelligence in the reviews. These people get it, that it's a cultural thing, what it reflects, the sarcasm, I thought 'wow this is really cool,'" Ogg said.
GTA 5 earned a 5/5 here on Examiner, and as just about anyone will tell you, the game deserved every single perfect score it received, and then some. Steve was very nice to speak with us about a host of other GTA 5 subjects and you can check out the full exclusive on our homepage now.
