A tribute to No. 19. #MrPadre
If one looks back not too long ago, to the fantastical, mystical time of 2004, almost a decade ago, it was a weird, hellish landscape. Especially in Iraq, where the leader of the free world was continuing his crusade and racking up a body count of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi people. In America, election season was ramping up again, and the latest and greatest Rockstar joint had just dropped - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
It wouldn’t be until the next year that it’s deep, dark, long forgotten yet deep roasted secret would finally come to light, like finding a dead fly in a coffee filter. That dead fly being a very poorly made and kinda horrifying looking sex mini game, of course. Early Summer 2005, “Hot Coffee” was found in the PC release of GTA: San Andreas, and the entire world exploded in agony at the discovery of hidden, stashed away code nobody thought would come to fruition, yet curious minds and modders with a little computer know-how digging through the game’s files uncovered “Hot Coffee” and released a patch online that activated the content. It was a tremendous embarrassment to Rockstar Games and forced them to clamp down on loose content in their releases, and a real show that in this day and age of the Internet, anybody can find anything if they truly try hard enough.
