The latest chapter in the controversial – and popular – "Grand Theft Auto" series hits stores on April 29. It's set in the fictional place of Liberty City, which looks exactly like New York. That's already angered local officials who say the signature sex and violence in the game will give people the wrong idea. And parental groups are warning about the hardcore content falling into the hands of kids. (It's rated "M" for mature, meaning age 17 and older.) But "GTAIV" has already generated plenty of buzz online with gamers, and it's expected to be one of the top-selling titles of 2008.
I got a chance to talk about it with reviewer and author of "Get Rich Playing Games" Scott Steinberg.
