If you’ve been reading our articles for a while, you’ll know that we usually kick off stories where we praise mods in similar ways. More often than not, we spend a paragraph giving readers a brief run-down of what the GTA V modding community looks like.
We say that there are serious mods, silly mods and awesome mods – with some variation in wording of course. However the mod we came across today, the mod that we’re sharing with you today is entirely odd and doesn’t quite fit any category.
Someone went to the lengths to remove each and ever audio file containing swearing outside of pre-rendered cutscenes. No banter with profanity will be present in the game anymore after applying this mod.
Well, almost. The mod basically censors the dialogue between the three protagonists, Franklin, Michael and Trevor. Only their family-friendly lines have survived this purge.
All in all, the mod is pretty impressive in the sense that the author has went to all the effort of scouring the whole library of audio-files in the game in order to find the ones which contain inappropriate vocabulary in the game.
But why? Why would you do this to a GTA game? This thing is rated mature for several reasons. Sure, profanity may be one of them, but it is hardly alone. Removing the swearing from the dialogue alone won’t suddenly make GTA V suitable for your little brother or conservative parents.
There is, actually, a rather extensive “family-friendly” mod for GTA V that removes all violence, illegal activity, sexual content and profanity from the game – but then that too is kinda weird when you think about it. If you want to play an open-world car game and nothing more, then play a bloody dedicated open-world car game and let GTA V be what it is.
Would you be interested in a family-friendly version of Grand Theft Auto?
