Okay, there's no evidence other than a vaguely worded job posting on Rockstar Games' site, but that hasn't stopped the speculation from hitting the internet that the next installment in the violent, perfect videogame series Grand Theft Auto will be a Massively Multiplayer Online game.

There will almost certainly be some kind of online play in the new game, but maybe, just maybe, gamers' dreams of living full-time in a violent, urban nightmare where murder is commonplace and hope is unknown will come true.

I'm not sure whether the game would work as an MMO. Melding the drudgerous, geeky, time-consuming leveling work integral to successful MMOs to the anarchistic, hedonistic world of GTA seems an impossible marriage: Killing 1,000 hookers to get 'hood XP in GTA would be just as boring as raising reputation by killing 1,000 Furblogs in WoW after, say, the first 500 hookers.

But hey, what do I know? Maybe it'll be awesome if it happens.
