Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the 5th game in the Grand Theft Auto series. This game stars a character named Carl "CJ" Johnson in a 90s era California-like atmosphere. It expands on the non-linear sandbox style gameplay established in previous games.

Story

Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where film stars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gang-bangers. Now, it's the early 90's. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighbourhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

Controversy

Content was found in all platform versions that is inaccessible without Action Reply for consoles and a download for PC. The content is called Hot Coffee and contains simulated sex scenes. This immediately created an outcry against San Andreas and the companies involved in its creation. Among some of the people who spoke against Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive included Jack Thompson and Hillary Clinton. The ESRB revised its' rating of Mature to Adults Only. Some stores like Wal-Mart started pulling copies off the shelf. In some cases, Adult Only stickers were sent to stores so they could be placed over the Mature labels.

July 28, 2005 Florence Cohen, 85, of New York, and grandmother of a 14-year-old, filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan that Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive "engaged in false, misleading and deceptive practices" by having the content Hot Coffee within the game.

July 29, 2005 Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification revokes the classification of MA15+. This is done because the game "contains contentious material (activated through a code or otherwise) that was not brought to the Board's attention when it was classified." The revocation of the classification has effectively banned San Andreas from Australia. [1]
