Example text

The choice of vehicles to steal has risen to include SUVs, station wagons and even boats, and now cut scenes (small sections of movie-like footage) are used to introduce mob characters and the jobs they offer. Along with this revamping of the graphics come even greater freedoms for gamers, who can simply ignore the tasks they have been set, and explore the city. Gamers can abandon cars altogether, take the train or the subway, or simply enjoy exploring the city on foot. In this way, not only can a jog through the park be rewarding in terms of the graphics experienced (something it would have been fairly difficult to argue of GTA or GTA2), but so too only in this way can many hidden packages and weapons be found.

Once the job is completed (often the removal or retrieval of a vehicle) another job becomes available, and so on. The purpose of the game is to complete the jobs, and in order to do so the gamer is required to steal cars, motorbikes, buses, or trucks, develop some proficiency in driving these different vehicles, and avoid the police. On route to jobs he/she is also able to kill passers by, gangsters or police, either with his/her vehicle or the various weapons left in crates scattered about the city.

What this means is that resistant objects and practices, such as comic books, culture jamming, viral art, or hacking, which deconstruct capitalism’s old hierarchies, can therefore be seen to assist in its new formations. The clearest illustration of this is the confused message of libertarianism put forward by Wark, who campaigns intellectually for an exploited underclass, the hackers who produce intellectual property that will be exploited by capitalism’s faceless and soulless corporations. Wark asks us to sympathise with individuals who are unable to assert their intellectual property rights in online gaming, who labour within new ‘life’ games such as Ultima Online to create the world that 41 Virtual structures of the Internet Electronic Arts (the game’s owner) will exploit.
