And as some enthusiasts discovered, GTA: The Trilogy Definitive Edition still contains cipher From the infamous little game Hot coffee Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which caused the perfect storm against its authors and the video game industry as a whole.
It’s unlikely that players will be able to reactivate Hot Coffee, since it lacks a lot of graphics resources to play it, but it’s impressive to see it still in the game code. In fact, the data correctors who checked a file From GTA: The Trilogy Definitive Edition discover much more: developer comments, cut content, cut songs, etc. However, hot coffee is especially relevant to the importance that it had in the history of our medium.
In short: GTA: San Andreas was released in 2004 and in the game you can have sex with several girls. Of course, the explicit sequences were cut out, except that an explicit real mini-game associated with these moments was hidden in the code, which was obviously deactivated at the last moment, but not removed. In 2005, players found a way to activate it, which led to several lawsuits against Take-Two and Rockstar Games, which put the gameplay medium under a magnifying glass.
Why is Hot Coffee still in GTA: San Andreas code? Probably because the developers who sponsored the remastered version got hold of the main design of the original and didn’t touch anything. Note that there are also all songs that were officially cut, but simply deactivated via script.
