    Better than Star wars amd other iconic framchises.

    Sold over 90 million copies.

    GTA V is the exact game I always wanted as a kid playing linear NES games with rigid levels and the inability to just go tear up all over after spending all that time leveling your character up. The only sandbox that can compete with GTA V is Minecraft.

    They did buy it. I can't remember if it was for $2 billion or $3 billion.

    There are various issues with the gaming industry at the moment. Mainly big studious taking advantage of programmers and developers, making them work insane hours with very little compensation. It's going to come to a head soon, and it will be interesting to see what happens. The studios do not want them unionizing.

    EA has been doing that for 15-20 years.

    What's so good about Minecraft?

    It looks like a really ty simulator with really terrible graphics. I'd sooner watch 2 back to back NASCAR races before I play that .

    It's virtual legos, except you can build really crazy things like electric circuits out of redstone and such. You can build all kinds of crazy machines. I couldn't believe when I saw someone build a functioning 16-bit adder out of redstone powered blocks a few years ago. That game is so much fun if you're at all interested by digital circuits.

    Then you missed the mission where you caught and took pictures of Bush (Shrub in the game) banging a porn star. Life imitating art.

    Vice City is not only my favorite GTA but my personal GOAT game as well.

    Love that game, from the city's vibe and atmosphere, Tommy, down to the soundtrack, even the ty graphics. Also, the story in VC has the perfect length for whenever i feel nostalgic and wanna replay it.

    Whenever i get the urge to replay San Andreas, i know i'm gonna stop playing somewhere in San Fierro because i've played it so many times and game's just too big.

    As for GTA V, story mode was meh, online kept me entertained for a while. Red Dead Redemption was Rockstar's best game last gen tbh imho.

    Agree on Red Dead. The western genre is just the perfect platform for a sandbox game, and Rockstar nailed it.

    Entire legions of kids 4-15 play minecraft. It is The Sandbox as this generation benefits more from a sandbox game
