Judge Mathis, famous TV judge, is creating a game.Mathis “Detroit” Street Judge is the name of the game, which is being created by Judge Greg Mathis and Hollywood filmmaker Matty Rich.Yahoo, the game casts players as La-Ron Washington, who’s on his last chance – one more problem with the law and he gets life from Judge Mathis. Problems arise from the fact that the Detroit underworld believes that La-Ron murdered a crime boss, which is a murder he didn’t commit.The game is a third-person shooter in an open world and is likened to Grand Theft Auto IV, but “the main difference […] is that players will have to deal with the justice system and consequences for their actions. When you go to prison, you get credibility when you come back on the streets. On the other hand, when you go to prison you can also be raped. So take your chances. We may see young people who make the wrong choice and go to prison and are assaulted repeatedly (in this game),” according to Mathis.”I know that a lot of young video game players like the (virtual) action of criminal activity,” said Mathis, talking about GTAIV. “In this game, we’re giving them that action and adding the option of living a mainstream, successful life. They have the combination of an action-packed criminal activity, as well as the opportunity to turn their lives around and pursue a level of success, as I did after leaving my background in the world of crime.”Mathis, you see, was involved in crime at an early age, having dropped out of school and drifted in and out of jail – before turning around and becoming the youngest judge in the history of Michigan.Mathis “Detroit” Street Judge is due out for release later this year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
