>The man in charge of the regional Rockstar studio long credited with handling the bulk of development for the Grand Theft Auto games is no longer at the company, Rockstar confirmed to Kotaku today. The company said Rockstar North studio head Leslie Benzies had been on sabbatical for the past 17 months.
>Rockstar North has had a less GTA-centric role in the past decade, as they and other regional Rockstar studios have been credited with sharing the work on the company’s major games, including the seemingly all-hands-on-deck 2013 GTA V.
has this leslie actually done anything or
So will this sub actually have interest in GTA again?
I don't know but maybe the games can move on from being boring shit simulators now. Maybe bring in the visionaries that made RDR work, they worked magic, that game had no right being as good as it was.
Guys remember David Jones ?
He created gta and lemmings, left and produced shitty games
his gta games ( 1, 2 ) were different than leslies gta games design
So the next guy in charge will change the gta design most likely oo and thats what we wanted right ?
His last gta game was 5 btw
refer to lcs
worse than the 1st
mobileshit no one cares
gta detective game 0/10
>max payne 3
Alright for all the retards here this is what this news means.
>the next gta will be insanely different and the direction will change drastically from the first time since 3
>Gta online isn't going to carry over to VI (at least not in its current design since benzies was the man in charge)
>the year of our lord MMXVI
>hating on GTAO
this is the future, niggers. better get used to it.
If you want singleplayer hugboxes go play weeb games.
Leslie isn't really synonymous with GTA. If the Houser brothers were gone I'd be worried, but as far as I know they're still on board. Don't worry family, the last good AAA franchise is still good for now.
>grind boring ass missions where people leave the match almost every time so you can get fake cars for your fake house
No thank you
Not referring to you specifically but to everyone in this thread seeing this as writing on the wall for the downfall of GTA and R*.
anyway, dunno how long it's been since you've played GTAO, but loading times have been drastically improved
on PC, except for the loading into the game when you boot it up.
Don't be an idiot anon. The houser brothers are idea guys. They don't program shit. Leslie is the reason the series took a turn with 3.
>do things over and over again in an online game you dislike
>I HATE GRINDING
>do things over and over again in an online game you like
>OH BOY ALL THIS ENGAGING GAMEPLAY
we get it, you're bad at the game.
>also using the 'fake things' argument on a video game board.
go and sit in your real room with your real things, fucking normie.
>making a good game has to do with the head of the studio being a programmer
even normies got bored of gta v after a week
open world games are dead
PC community for GTA:O is so fucking horrible.
I just want to heist god damn it.
Just because one head of a studio which makes decent games (which is subject of discussion, but for the sake of the argument we'll pretend that it does)is a good programmer, doesn't automatically mean that's a requirement.
You guys realize that Dan houser writes the stuff for their games ,that his brother is the boss and that the rockstar devs develop the games ?
Leslie is just a managment guy
Hes in charge of the biggest entertainment products and now he wants to rest
Go ask people on /gtag/ to heist. If it's Series A you're trying to run, good luck.
>Open world games are dead
I've put ~55 hours into MGSV just in the last week bruh
>either you have it or you don't
are you saying programming is something genetic?
this thread keeps on amazing me
>9 year olds get themselves killed and/or disconnect
>ur just bad lol normie
>living in an apartment in LA with 8 cars isn't normalfag
>Benzies joined Rockstar North back in 1999 when it was still DMA Design. He played a huge role in the development of the Grand Theft Auto series and went on sabbatical following the release of Grand Theft Auto V.
>9 year olds get themselves killed and/or disconnect
eh? what does this have to do with anything?
and you're a fucking normie because you're moaning about fictional objects on a board where pretty much everything discussed is fictional but the production of the subject video games.
Everything we do is fake, so that's a pretty bro tier generalization.
fuxake i barely remember any missions from a GTA game period.
Think GTAV missions were the most forgettable though.
Bought the game on three platforms and only managed to play the campaign once.
I do have 40 days played in GTAO though.
>I'm about 7 hours into DS2 and I don't like it like 1.
Exactly my friend.
>Who was the person who ruined it and what did they do?
The director. He made all the weird choices because he's the director.
DeS and DaS director was making Bloodborne at the time.
I've only repeated like 4 or 5 missions in total and I have 2 garages full of modded cars and motorcycles, as well as a vtol jet. All the money for that came from actually exploring the multiplayer content instead of trying to turn it into a chore.
There's really no grinding involved, just play the fucking game
Yeah, DaS2 isnt as good as the first, but i dont like when people say it is a bad game. It is my GOTY 2014, just slightly worse than DaS1 in some aspects: Level design and Boss Design
It's an okay game, but it's one step forward 3 steps back.
2014 was pretty weak year.
I would say DS2 was the best but South Park was really good.
Also I didn't even finish DS2. Dropped it halfway through because I was so let down.
