GTA V is just selling insane numbers. Soon it will be number one for XOne, too.

I thought it wouldn't come to this. I've put the creation of a thread based on that fact on hold for at least a couple of months, but now you ruin it with this.

Well, I have only myself to blame for postponing it for so long.

You snooze you lose. 

 

Anyway this is quite incredible and just shows you the power of gta. It's a monster.

Sorry for stealing your thunder.  I've actually had posting this in mind for a while now as well.  I finally had a light day and decided to get to it.  Coincidentally, the same thing happened to me.  I've been meaning to create a thread regarding Nintendo Switch games by user play time, and then this happened:

It is also the first time we have the game of the generation being the same for 2 generations, that being The Last of Us... Sony is full of duplicates =p

By whose metric though?  Sales data is easy to quantify.  But, a "Game of the Generation" tag is very subjective.  I did a quick search though, and I didn't see the re-release of The Last of Us for PS4 on any "Game of the Generation" lists.



And which gen was the one GTA didn't dominate?
LoD gen, with GT dominating.
You asked for it Sony.



It speaks volumes for the industry-wide, creativity decline. There was a time in the 80's, 90's and early 00's when this wasn't so. But hey... REMAKE... REMAKE... PORT... REMAKE... PORT!

I bet I lost your attention there, didn't I?

They secured marketing deals for "Red Dead Redemption 2", Im guessing they understand how big a impact they have.

If you're counting remasters then we've actually had the same game of the generation for 3 generations, Final Fantasy X of course!

Other way around, the ps2 was huge before gta. The ps2 success gave R* a canvas to paint the future they now have. Where would R* be without Sony is more like it. I would make the same argument for any 3rd party franchise that started on PS1 and PS2
