The patched version was given an "MA15 " classification on September 12, 2005. However, the patch also disabled the controversial "Hot Coffee" scenes, even if the "Hot Coffee" mod was re-installed. The game was already rated "18 " by PEGI prior to the release of the mod.Furthermore, PEGI ratings are enforced by law in many European nations, making it a criminal offense to sell 18 games to minors.But be careful landing, the car goes at least 500mph in the air. Also want a monster truck; Type in MONSTERMASH and you will get the MONSTER.Hot Coffee is a normally inaccessible mini-game in the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, developed by Rockstar North.Public awareness of the existence of the mini-game arrived with the release of the Hot Coffee mod, created for the Microsoft Windows port of GTA: San Andreas in 2005. The mini-game portrays crudely animated sexual intercourse between the main character, Carl "CJ" Johnson, and his chosen in-game girlfriend.The name of the mod is derived from the girlfriend's offer for the main character to come into her home for "coffee", a euphemism for sex.
The day after the rating change, several North American chain stores, and IEMA retailers, which accounted for every major retailer in the United States and approximately 85% of the game's market in the country, removed the PC and console versions of the game from their store shelves, either re-sticker the box with the new rating, or returning it to Take-Two Interactive.In the unmodified version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, players see an exterior view of the girlfriend's house while muffled voices of CJ and his girlfriend engaging in sexual intercourse are heard.However, the Hot Coffee mod replaces this with a minigame which allows the player to actually enter the girlfriend's bedroom and control Carl's actions during sex, with the same controls as dancing.It also rekindled the debate over the influence of video games in general with new protests against several other games such as Killer7, The Sims 2, and Bully.Jack Thompson was one of the first to criticize the game for its hidden content, believing violent media is one of the main causes of violent crime in America. Senator Hillary Clinton suggested that new regulations be put on video games sales.
