The Grand Theft Auto video game series has been widely successful across multiple platforms and generations of consoles for nearly two decades. That same series has also been the root of numerous controversies since the first edition of GTA was released in stores. It is understandable why so much about GTA over the years has been controversial. The game has essentially been built upon players completing missions that include committing simulated crimes such as theft, assault, and even murder. The GTA series and also first-person shooter titles have long been criticized by activists groups and individuals who would claim that video games can inspire real-life criminal activities and violence.

Somebody hypothetically linking a GTA segment with something that could occur in the real world is one thing. Any humor and fun and games about such discussions have been tossed out the window when the matter has been taken to court. The GTA series has been part of multiple lawsuits, and there have also been accusations that the game has used the likenesses of living persons without consent. Regardless of those controversial moments, or maybe even because of them, the GTA series remains popular with gamers who have enjoyed numerous editions of these titles, and also with younger fans who are just being introduced to GTA for the first time.

It is one of the better known mods ever made for a video game. The main character in GTA: San Andreas can date multiple women at the same time, and those women may, now and again, invite Carl inside for “coffee.” The game implies Carl and his lady friend have more than a cup of coffee, but the “Hot Coffee” mod goes one step further. The mod allows players to take part in a sex “mini-game.” While the characters are clothed throughout the simulation, the mod was nevertheless controversial. Take-Two Interactive apologized for the mod and claimed that the content available through “Hot Coffee” was never intended to be in the original game.
