It was bound to happen sooner or later. After 35 years of listening to 3PO’s bitching, R2-D2 has finally snapped.This realization of the droid’s long-simmering rage was created by gamer JMoorfoot, a Star Wars and Grand Theft Auto IV fan who wanted to make a mash-up of the two franchises. As a result, he created the mod for the PC version of GTAIV that you see above. There’s something indescribably pleasing about watching R2 wreaking havoc throughout Liberty City, wouldn’t you agree? Meanwhile, the ratings of The Clone Wars would probably go through the roof if the producers let Artoo spend an entire episode destroying Coruscant. Let’s make this happen. (Via Joystiq)
