I KNOW that it sounds clickbaity as hell, but Dan Houser of Rockstar Games has said that due to the extremes in the political climate; making a satire of America is nearly impossible. Everyone gets offended, whether liberal or conservative. The amount of insanity in USA has blurred the line between reality and parody.
I can see where he's coming from. Donald Trump, whether you love him or hate him has turned the Presidency into a Reality show. His over the top behavior makes him *seem* like a caricature. The reactions from fringe "followers and haters" seem like odd GTA missions.
When Rockstar games is claiming that they CAN'T do a GTA, that's the point where you must say:
'Murica! Cut it out! Or at least dial it down some 20 or 30 notches. Looks like it'll be 5 more years of Cowboy Shenmue until we get GTA VI on PS5 and whatever the successor to XBOne is called. Oh yeah! RDR2 is being called cowboy Shenmue now.
