GTA: Syria City?

Israeli gamer Doron Yaacoby saw this pirated copy of GTA while visiting the local market at Acre. The game’s title, GTA: Syria City 22, was weird: First, Syria is a state, not a city, and secondly, Yaacoby, an avid gamer, had never heard of that title. The back cover bore Arabic writing saying “In Arabic” and “In Syria”.

So Yaacoby shelled out 10 Shekels (about $2.85) to buy it, took it home and installed it on his PC, just to realize it’s a mere pirated copy of GTA: Vice City, and a faulty one at that.
