If it didn't work it wouldn't still be around. It's pretty much common sense.
Is it always going to be 100% accurate? Of course not, but nothing ever is 100%. All I know is if you have someone who has absolutely NO problem with flat out killing himself to accomplish his goal then there probably aren't going to be many nice ways to get information out of him.
So I completely disagree with people who try to say torture never works. The only argument there should be imo is whether or not it should be morally acceptable to torture or not. With that I would never tell anyone they are wrong b/c it would completely be up to the individuals opinion and or beliefs.
What about prohibition? I'm sure it's been around in some form or another since the beginning of recorded history (Even if that form is "You're not allowed to do that!" yet that doesn't change the fact it rarely works. Popularity is never a measure of how useful something is and the fact is, how many other ways can you think of to get information from someone? It's been around for ages simply because it's an easy jump of logic to make and something that doesn't require tools to do in its most basic forms.

Because Kayne and Lynch 2 didn't sell ~13 million copies in a day. (Give or take 1 million at most for the leaked copies...Or just say a week instead)

I was literally talking to my girlfriend about this when I did the mission and was saying I'd wait until they were at a level of maturity where we both agreed they could play...Under supervision until they're 15 at least. (GTA was rated MA15+ until GTA V...and the only thing here that is mentioned on its rating blurb is the Drug Use which is featured on practically every bloody TV show that a 15 year old could watch due to it being on at 9-10pm with much more realism these days either way.)
