    im always a fan of FPS, but rockstar made a good decision. FPS have gone down in market. Look at 2007's FPS sales, then 2011's. Besides BF3 n MW3, there is not any other 'big hype/big FPS anymore.
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Oh well. FPS games are kind of overrated, and Rockstar is great with the third-person.

    They're the best at what they do, they shouldn't change that.


    Retired on PS3 (since Dec 2013) due to half-broken console and lack of funds and time to fix it.
    Oct 2014 - Dec 2014 - Back on PS3
    Retired on PS3 since Jan 2014 due to original reasons.

    It's good to hear that Rockstar have no interest in creating any FPS games. That market is over-saturated as it is - Rockstar should be commended for their decision to avoid that genre and keep churning out what they're best at - 3rd-person action-adventure titles.

    Rockstar makes great games and it's nice to know that they wont give into the FPS craze. Red Dead Redemption, Manhunt 1, The Warriors and GTA Vice City are some of my fav Rockstar games.

    Rockstar has way more potential than to be making casual FPS games like everybody nowadays are doing.

    3rd Person is the way to go IMO. Uncharted is actually my favorite game. Dead Space is a close second, and then the GTA franchise since this is a R* thread...Ive liked every GTA game, played them all except the ones on PSP. RDR was great also, I never played Max Payne on PS2 but Ill more than likely be picking it up when its out...

    Good call, Rockstar. No need to follow the trend especially when the games you're making are really popular anyway.

    I find it funny that a company who has made some incredibly derivative games says they are avoiding FPS for originality reasons...

    This is the definition of pot calling the kettle black.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    It's good to not follow trends, it shows you have iniative and there games will be more interesting...,not to say that all fps games are boring.

    I'm glad they're not doing FPS tbh. Rockstar should stick to what they're best at which is Sandbox and TPS games like GTA and Max Payne.

    I just hope that Rock Star will have the balls and ability to venture out when their own baby becomes watered down and recycled like FPS.

    That said, who actually expected them to make a fps?

    That's fine by me, they are great at what they do and its nice to actually play games with a decent story line and sp mode longer than a few hours
