Rockstar is being sued by some black dude from Cypress Hill. He claims that the main character in GTA: San Andreas, Carl Jonhnson, is based on him. The likeness is because, he's a black teenage kid that rides bikes and is in a gang (no seriously, that's the claim). Now don't get me wrong, but isn't LA filled with tons of gangs that are both Latino and Black? The protagonist is simply a stereotype of a gang member in the same setting.
The lawsuit will fail miserably. Source.
P.S: Black Guy Stole my Bike.
San Andreas? That's 6 years old, no one gives a crap any more; the game industry isn't like the music industry, old games are old and the only ones worth mentioning beyond their year of release are the classics, which will stay classic, forever, such as Half-Life, which is old by any means, but an undeniable classic.
