If you're an avid gamer, it would come as no surprise to your friends if you were one of thousands to line up outside game stores for the anticipated release of Grand Theft Auto V. While this game may not be a favorite among parents, as it encourages car-jacking and bad behavior, it's definitely a number one game for a younger generation.

To appeal to a younger audience, there are many ways non-video game sectors have incorporated the game into their work. For example, Amirul Hafiz has taken cute Super Mario characters and given them a new image that places them in Grand Theft Auto scenes. Furthermore, director Mathieu Weschler has taken footage from the game and created an entire two-hour-length movie called 'The Trashmaster.'
