"The GTA series had appeared on PlayStation 2 and Xbox, but had never made it to the Nintendo GameCube, due to Nintendo's longstanding policy of generally shunning adult content. The Simpsons Hit & Run is therefore the closest approach to GTA possible on the GameCube."
What about True Crime: Streets of LA? That could be seen as a GTA clone which was released for the Gamecube.
This is a trivial subject for an article.
Ok, I stand corrected, 'n' redirects to here. But should the other article still be merged? Azure Haights 19:07, Oct 13, 2004 (UTC)
- I made the third one a redirect here, and moved a bit of text that seemed not duplicated to this article-- though it seems somewhat contradictary. I hope someone knowledgeable about the game can sort it out. -- Infrogmation 19:17, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I think the whole paragraph discussing GTA is a) nothing but conjecture and b) outright inaccurate, as Nintendo has approved many very GTA-like games, and the lack of its availablity on Nintendo's platform is at best only partially due to the actual violent content of the game. On top of this, the game under discussion is available for all of the major gaming platforms, not just the Gamecube. The argument doesn't seem to hold weight, so I'm cutting out that part of the discussion. Tsunomon 14:37, 28 September 2005 (UTC)Tsunomon
Do we really need as much detail on the characters as is given here? A simple list will do, as with the other games. Each of the characters has their own article so there's no need to just copy and paste from the instruction manual/GameFAQs. --L T Dangerous 18:22, 4 March 2006 (UTC)
- I implemented most, if not all, of the NPC's into the List of Vehicles. GooTuM 05:25, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
This is written like a walkthrough. We're not writing walkthroughs, FAQs, etc, we are writing an encyclopedia! Leave all the former to Gamespot.--M Johnson (talk • contribs) 01:44, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
How about a list of references to the show?
Such as the Stonecutter's tunnel into the power plant?
- But the entire game is a reference to the show! Mo-Al 04:43, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
The game was not "well recieved", it had numerous bad reviews along with the good reviews. Then theres the case of the unnecesary FAQ-like information in it. If we analize this article, all in all, theres very little real info.
- What were these bad reviews? The game received widely positive reviews, I want a link to the numerous bad reviews. Gran2 08:15, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
"The last Simpsons game ever made for a console"? Highly dubious.
Seems unlikley that this will be the last ever Simpsons game for a console. What is the editor trying to say? Caleb Osment 09:00, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Comparison to GTA
Can we change the caption to the picture comparing SHAR to GTA? While I agree gameplay is similar, having a radar and an emphasis on driving is not the best way of arguing this similarity. Mattyp9999 (talk) 13:35, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
