“The Destructors” seemed a bit familiar!

While we were reading the story “The Destructors” by Graham Greene I felt like I already knew the story, all the events and characters and their personalities seemed quite familiar. Then I realized that I had played a video game that copied all of these. If you have a look at the story of Grand Theft Auto V, then you will be able to see how they resemble. It is clear how Blackie can be connected with Mike from the game, Trevor from the story and Trevor from the game to, finally Mike from the story and Franklin from the game. At first Blackie and Mike were in a relationship were one had more power than another, but then T got in the middle and challenged Blackie. The same happened in the game! Moreover, in the game there is a task were the gang pulls down a house with a truck. just like in the story! I haven’t found any source that says that the company that created the game got inspired by the story, but it is a possibility.
