Grand Theft Auto's 'Hot Coffee'
Play • 31 min
The Grand Theft Auto series was already pushing the limits of adult content in video games by the early 2000's, but developer Rockstar wanted to go even further for the next entry. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas was eventually released in 2004 without the planned explicit content, but when modders unlocked the scenes that Rockstar decided to hide at the last minute, all hell broke loose.

Hosted by Corbin Davenport, guest starring Zachary Wander. Outro is the Grand Theft Auto San Andreas theme.
