ERSE is a video game magazine in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. ERSE magazines are green in color along with a white title, a picture and caption. It can be seen on the coffee table in Tommy Vercetti's Suite in the Ocean View Hotel, along with a vase of flowers, a New Discoverer magazine, a Crime magazine, a hockey mask (if The Job has been completed) and a magazine about Lance Vance. In the issue in Tommy's Suite, the caption reads "1986 sees best ever graphics", alongside what appears to be a screenshot from an early 2-D adventure game.
ERSE is a parody of EDGE; they are both video game magazines and have identical wordmarks, the middle stroke on the E on both of their logos extend through the stem. The name is also similar to 'arse', tying in with Rockstar's crude humour.
