    We have enough FPS, and Rockstar doesn't really need to contribute to that number.

    Good call Rockstar, maybe making a Midnight Club 5 wouldn't be too much to ask

    To be honest, I didn't even know that they haven't made an FPS ever. Anyways, I like that; I've never been dissappointed by Rockstar.

    I've already played three different Midnight Club games with Tokyo though, another one would be a bit much if you ask me. Maybe Paris would be nice though. I loved the city back in Midnight Club 2.

    Midnight Clubs 2, 3 Remix, and LA Remix (PSP) has Tokyo in it. A Midnight Club Collection for 1-3 Remix would be better

    They don't need to do first person shooters. Their games like the GTA series and Red Dead are awesome. There are games out there that are similar but aren't as good. So they really dominate that side of the market. For Rockstar to bring out FPS's they would have to compete with massive franchises such as COD, BF and MOH. I'm sure they could pull it off and make a cracker of a FPS but isn't there enough of them around anyway?

    That's a good choice. Everything coming lately is an FPS. It gets old and boring.

    Rockstar clearly excel in a particular area and if i'm honest, i'll say i'm glad they know it.

    Maybe they could try and put their mark on another genre when some other 'big' company goes and kills all love for it in the actual game loving public just so they could make a quick buck.

    Tell you what, i bet Rockstar could re- invent any genre as long as they do so on their own terms.
