* ''WebVideo/GameTheory'' took a look at the hacking that one can do while playing this game, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DtNPXoydz_zQ came to a pretty terrifying conclusion that most of them are perfectly able to be done in real life.]] Try getting into a car now without thinking how someone can take control of it and drive it over a cliff with you inside.

* In the E3 trailer, Aiden caused a blackout to get away from some cops that were chasing him. Just think if you were sat at home minding your own business, attempting to ignore the fighting outside and then all of a sudden the guy that was being chased blacks out the building you're in without much explanation.

* The second game's trailer and gameplay footage make it very clear that once again, ctOS has ensured nobody is safe. Highlights include Marcus hacking a billboard to display the [=DedSec=] logo, hacking somebody's car while it's parked, and ''texting an entire mass of civilians'' just to gain a convenient path. Damn, that's cold.
