Forums - Gaming Discussion - Parting Post: GTA V's success is bad for the videogame industry.

Your first two points are wrong.

Similar things has happenened in the film industry and though the movies raised the bar in terms of quality or budget
other movies have been (and still are) produced without getting close to budget,effects or quality.(btw the script is pretty shitty)
There is always room for coexistence.Others haven't stopped making movies because of 2001 or blade runner were so far ahead of their time.

your last point is great:I've always been searching for the real Genre Name of gta.Gangster Sim(disguised as action adventure) is 100% right.A pretty antisocial and nihilistic one.

GTA V is setting standards. I don't think that's hurting it.

I don't really agree, but a nice read nonetheless.



GTA5 isn't bad because GTA doesn't come out every year. It's COD, AC, BF/MoH, and sports games that cause this concentration of sales EVERY year. Puppeteer unfortunately suffered though and will likely flop now :( I'll pick it up BF and help support the devs (also it looks bloody fantastic but I've got to save every cent).

It's hard to blame GTA for Puppeteer flopping.  Puppeteer was simply sent out to die with poor marketing. 



Nope

Good point just like sly.  Hopefully Sony finds it in their hearts to advertise some games not by ND, SSM, or Polyphony.  They didn't have one commercial for heavy rain, killzone, puppeteer, sly, beyond, or even ratchet recently

I agree.

To me, GTAV typifies the kind of bloated AAA production that's draining money and attention away from more creative games.

Sony has a lot of neat ideas for games, but they rarely seem to go all in with them.  They either have a full scale marketing blitz, or nothing at all.
