==Censorship==
 
Despite the series being rated CERO Z/18+, ''Grand Theft Auto'' faces censorship for some two of its games when it is localized for the Japanese market due to the rating system restricting certain forms of violence or sexual content in console-released games.
 
 
''Grand Theft Auto: Vice City'':
 
* The Japanese version of the game no longer the player to blow off heads nor do blood droplets appear when you are killing someone with a chainsaw or blood splats when launching explosives towards people.
 
* [[Ken Rosenberg]] is not seen snorting cocaine when talking with [[Tommy Vercetti]] in both ''[[No Escape?]]'' and ''[[The Shootist]]'' missions in the Japanese version.
 
* The mission ''[[Martha's Mug Shot]]'' and ''[[G-Spotlight]]'' in which [[Steve Scott]] is shooting a pornographic movie with [[Candy Suxx]] that has shots of her moaning while doing stimulated sex are censored with the moans muted and the camera angles discretly placed away from the sex.
 
* The spotlight that promotes Candy Suxx by showing her breasts and nipples is replaced instead with simply the actress' name.
 
* The naked photos of Candy Suxx in [[Ricardo Diaz]]'s mansion are replaced instead with kittens instead.
 
 
 
''Grand Theft Auto V'':
 
* The scene in which [[Trevor Philips]] pulls down his pants to show his penis and butt is removed from the Japanese release and thus the same animation and dialogue stays without the aforementioned act in question.
 
* The sex scene between Trevor and [[Ashley Butler]] is cut and instead shows them watching the news report of the jewelry robbery.
 
* The mission ''[[Paparazzo - The Sex Tape]]'' in which [[Poppy Mitchell]] has anal sex with [[Justin]] is altered and instead has you recording them smoking.
 
* The controversial ''[[By the Book]]'' mission where Trevor is interrogating a [[Azerbaijan|Azerbaijani]] man named [[Ferdinand Kerimov]] is skipped entirely and fades to black until after the torture is completing.
