Google Maps goes Gangster

If you have been awake for the past week you haven’t been able to turn on the TV, read a magazine or go online without seeing the hype and roar over the new Grand Theft Auto video game. The games creator Rockstar Games and video game site IGN have teamed up to create an online version of the in-game map. You can use multiple different markers to see things like points of interest, items and secrets as well as add commentary and ratings of attributes like “difficulty”, “fun factor”, “time it took” and “fight club”.
