Were these games released to hold us over until their next title or to actually celebrate the trilogy? I dont get why these games were rushed out, Rockstar never does that

Rockstar didnt develop these remasters, they outsourced to a studio that's only ever developed mobile games before this. Take that as you will.

ID: hklqg9z

Now the question is how Rockstar looked at this and said it was fine to sell.

ID: hkly58m

Makes it no less their responsibility. They gave control of an IP that has defined their company, to another company, and allowed them to make a product that would be sold under Rockstar's brand. And then, they greenlit the release knowing exactly what was being released.

It's just as much, if not more, Rockstar's disaster than it is GSG's.

They have two programmers. Two.

If their name is Grove Street Games, then it looks like rockstar made them haha

Well, if you hire idiots to represent you then you are also an idiot. Rockstar is to blame. A shitty mobile game studio is going to produce dogshit like this and they probably produced what they were capable of doing. Who is surprised by the results?

ID: hklji4n

These games were released to syphon money out of idiots.

ID: hklr64h

Idiot here. This is true

ID: hklm576

Rockstar is not the same company we knew. We will get a better idea in the next few years, im sure.

ID: hkn29se

What's funny but also kinda sad to me is that for the majority of the time they've been around and in all their GTA games at least, Rockstar has had such a focus on parodying and making fun of big corporations that run on greed and churn out crap. (That's not to say they don't have good quality in games, RDR2 and gtav are incredible, it's the way they handle the games)

Now they've become synonymous with that and an example of that in their own industry. For me, it's EA and Rockstar as the top examples in gaming of companies that started out pretty great then gave in to greed and had their quality decline.

Unfortunately we are seeing more and more AAA using their past reputations to cash out. Blizzard did the same exact thing as rockstar with Warcraft 3 reforged which flopped so hard they legally had to refund the game, which is something they never had to do it the past.

AAA now is just about bleeding dry the older products that put them on the map. Rarely is it about creating new games / concepts that push the limits of gaming hardware with their extremely bloated budgets.

Dan Houser, Vice President, Creative at Rockstar Games has been away since 2019 and left last year...I'm betting the quality downgrade is connected with this for sure!

ID: hkls6gb

Rockstar is different since they make billions off of idiots buying shark cards in GTAO. Also the old CEO and writers are gone. Don’t expect any great GTAs for the future, it’ll be solely build to make a new generation of GTA:O.

ID: hkn78u0

The irony is Rockstar have become the thing that GTA has always made fun of. It’s sad.

ID: hklp7s6

Rockstar has lost a lot of credibility in the last couple years.

Idk if a new manager got put in place or what the fuck happened

ID: hklq9dg

Rockstar never did that.... when Dan Houser was around.

ID: hklghmq

Someone probably accidentally deleted a ton of GTA 6 files so they rushed these out to distract people while they secretly move the GTA 6 release date from 2028 to 2032.

ID: hklk20b

Some Toy Story 2 shit right there

ID: hkllz62

But is that before or after the next rerelease of GTA V?

ID: hklp3f7

A whistleblower from rockstar has admitted they’ve scrapped and started over GTA6 multiple times, including in 2016 when they started fully from scratch again after 4 years of development

ID: hklpu3w

Nah, the people working on GTA quit. Rockstar is just a marketing department now.

They can't even re-release GTA5, a game they made two generations ago with a version for last gen, for the current gen.

ID: hklllro

from 2028 to 2032.

Wow, they must be rushing to get it out!

3 : Anonymous2021/11/14 14:33 ID: hklamu7

The fact that they removed the old versions of the games is even worse! And the mods!

I'd much prefer downloading those and modding them to make them much better that these shitty "remasters".

Companies just don't get that MODS KEEP OLD GAMES ALIVE!!!!!!11!!!

Call em, “freemasters”

I’m glad I sat this out. I could not justify $60 on this game. I did pickup Cyberpunk over the summer when BB had it for $9.99 with a collectible steel book, ended up getting it for $5 using some store points.

Come on rockstar, quit milking past projects and focus on GTA6.

ID: hkl80bl

Just wait for the next big Rockstar announcement to be a Red Dead Redemption 1 remaster.

ID: hkl9mnn

rdr2 ps5 patch?

ID: hklegam

You may be joking but I really believe this will happen before a new GTA.

ID: hkld3bt

Red Dead Redemption: Remarstoned

ID: hkl8sti

I just want a red dead undead nightmare....

ID: hkld9hm

The fact that it's coming to mobile is all you need to know about the game

ID: hkl8nbm

I picked up Cyberpunk at that price too, and now just waiting for that next gen upgrade. They can take all the time they need and eventually I'll have a PS5 game that cost $5!

Serves them right. Vote with your wallets folks.

ID: hkl7r5f

That's what people do.. That's why the game Rockstar is the state it is.. Because people buy it in the millions beside buying fake gta dollars

"Rockstar has clearly looked at CD Project Red's Cyberpunk 2077 and said hold my beer while I curl a bigger turd out."

That pic really encapsulates the whole thing perfectly. When I saw the trailer a few weeks back, I thought "hell yeah, this looks cool." I thought the cartoony style with better graphics looked good.

But then I started browsing the GTA subreddit a few days ago and now I'm really sad because I was looking forward to playing it. But I'm not gonna get it based on all the bullshit I've seen. No offense to anyone who got it or wants to get it, but the bugs, the character models, the rain, the missing songs..i can't do least not now. Maybe at some point.

ID: hkn3da0

I thought with the trailer it was “oh they went to make it more cartoony to go off the old angular graphics.” Nope they’re just terrible for a PS5. Then there’s the rain….

ID: hkn3koh

Oh the rain. I've seen the gameplay and you can't see anything lmao

I am so proud of myself for not buying this. I fall for shitty launches from seemingly well respected companies all the time.

ID: hkm9jok

It’s fortunate that I don’t really care to replay these games.

They were a lot of fun back on the PS2, but there’s so many open world fuck around games now, they don’t fill a niche like they used to.

Rockstar or Take Two, or whoever is running the show these days, is clearly just concerned with profits.

10 : Anonymous2021/11/14 14:48 ID: hklcjjb

Yeah, I watched some random youtube streamer stream the game and I couldn't but feel underwherlmed by everything about the game.

11 : Anonymous2021/11/15 02:50 ID: hko8o9u

Rockstar should have created a development team full of modders, people who have true love for these games. Paid the royalties for the music given it more time instead of this disgusting mess of a collection. You have the biggest titles in gaming and you shit the bed. Why have studios not learnt. Definite should be better all round, not this cluster fuck

12 : Anonymous2021/11/14 15:54 ID: hkllcm2

Rockstar’s reputation is going down the shitter. There’s only so much goodwill RDR2 and the last GTA can buy. I’m actually hoping they get a nasty shock like CDPR had.

13 : Anonymous2021/11/14 14:24 ID: hkl9m1j

I assume you're better off just ripping your own ps2 discs and playing in HD via pcsx2

ID: hklb54h

This guy fucks.

14 : Anonymous2021/11/14 17:53 ID: hkm2ept

I didn’t buy. I won’t buy anything other than gta6 from R*. It just perpetuates this endless cash grabbing cycle. I never bought shark cards for the same reason. It’s makes me sad to see all my favorite game developers all fall off. I guess that’s what happens nowadays.

15 : Anonymous2021/11/14 20:12 ID: hkmou0l

No wonder rockstar didn't show any gameplay before release.
