Every year the rush to buy the right presents at holiday time can be amusing to watch. It can also be very stressful, depending on how you are involved in the process. One interesting way of making the whole thing a lot more fun is to see if the bookies are right when they predict that certain things will sell well.
For the holiday season in 2012, the bookmakers were keen on stating that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 was likely to be a real hit. The bookies were sure to slash the odds on this happening though, after all, Call of Duty games have been the bestsellers for the last three years in the lead up to 2012′s holiday season.
Many bookies had odds of 20/1 on that the game would prove to be the best selling game for present buyers everywhere. The sheer amount of people who unwrapped the game on Christmas Day could probably testify that they were correct in their assertions.
The fifth installment of Grand Theft Auto has improved in a lot of ways. The sound design and the graphics have improved significantly. However, the amount of violence depicted in the game has also increased to the point that some countries have either restricted the game or banned it altogether.
The utter violence and sexual content in GTA have always been issues since the gaming franchise begun, but GTV V has brought such issues to a whole new level. Saudi Arabia, has banned it, and other countries are contemplating on what to do with the game.
However, with map expansions, new characters and new missions, a lot of people are still looking forward to playing the game in spite of all the ruckus it has been causing. GTA has built a reputation, and GTA V looks like it will uphold the legacy that the original GTA has established years ago when it was first released to the public.
