    I don’t think they stuck the landing with RDR2, so their reputation in my mind is much different than it is in yours. GTA V, though I enjoyed it much more than RDR2, I would have liked to see them push further. I know GTA VI will go on to be one of the best-selling video games of all time, and I might even be one of those customers, since we don’t really have many other options for a good crime story in games anymore, but I’m not sold on it sight unseen like you are. And no, we haven’t seen it yet from this trailer; those were cut-scenes. I know for a fact I’m not alone on how I felt about RDR2, though if I were a betting man, I’d wager I’m in the minority; still, that’s not a flawless track record to me.

      Rdr2 was insane. Red dead online was a massive dud. The single player game was amazing, the scope was massive and they delivered in a great way. But yes it failed big time for them. But I still love it. And gta has delivered consistently. As soon as I see a major dud I’ll call them on it, but they just haven’t missed.

        They missed me. Like I said though, I still enjoy a great crime story, but I might have to accept that it comes attached to a game that doesn’t want to let me use my brain.

          The bigger criticism against Rockstar is as they swing for the fences they’re building the framework to effectively heard western children in like cattle so they can milk them for a generation using their online service.
