GTA V: Guess you’re not tired of sequels

by manylaughs on September 22, 2013

 

Game sequels are not at all like movie sequels. Each succeeding movie sequels tend to move closer and closer to the kind of stink associated sewers and stopped up toilets. Game sequels just seem to get better. But game studios make games for the same reason movie studios do. No, not the art. Don’t be silly.

Want to know why they do it? The answer is in this little snippet from Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company:

Title: Grand Theft Auto V® Worldwide Sales Surpass $1 Billion In First Three Days

It’s money. That’s why they do it.

Yes, there are plenty of people working on projects like this who are doing it for the art. But when it comes down to a decision about which game gets made and which one doesn’t the corporate suits are going with the sequels.
