Resident rockstar defender.... Nice try, but...
I don't need to when the facts/reality show the best in the business pedigree of Rockstar.
I mean RDR2 got a 97 meta, sold like 44million.
GTA5 has sold an unprecedented 165 million and also scored 97.
I don't see why people get so emotional and reach to this bullshit. The company has moved too many units and won too many awards to pretend their next game will be shit cuz some gamers are triggered over dumb shit.
The game has the funding to push gaming to some wild limits, this team is the open world king right along with Bethesda and even my issues with RDR2, don't every fucking disregard that its one of the best open world titles ever made. I had issues with the walking animation like him not running sometimes during shootouts and the weird control scheme like when the weapon wheel wouldn't remember your set up, but other then that....its a solid title and I don't even have a close second to get that type of experience on those platforms. So I think gamers tend to exaggerate those issues and unless someone is doing it bigger and better then them, they are the kings in this genre.
Its like my issues with Fallout and Elder Scrolls...and what game is second to those concepts? They are in a league of their own, which means maybe my issues with those games isn't that massive and what those games offer isn't the norm to believe my gripes are the end of the world or something.
GTA VI is still going to shit on the majority of open world crime games and will be the benchmark. I don't think that is a "rockstar defender" thing to believe, I'd say that even if I fucking hated the company. They factually have done too much for me to believe all that will go away with GTA VI.
