Grand Theft Auto 5’s Unseen Mastermind

IGN- Sam and Dan Houser are synonymous with Grand Theft Auto. The brothers, born in London in the ’70s, turned a passion for American crime movies and spaghetti westerns into some of the biggest gaming franchises on the planet in GTA and Red Dead Redemption. But although the Housers are the visible creative forces of Rockstar, there’s one man who’s worked tirelessly in the shadows on Grand Theft Auto since GTA III – Leslie Benzies.

He’s been the producer on the series since it exploded into 3D in 2001, and as the head of Edinburgh development studio Rockstar North, he’s overseen no less than nine GTA games, not to mention Red Dead, LA Noire and Max Payne 3. (Grand Theft Auto V, Leslie Benzies, PS3, Xbox 360)

They must be a solid group of devs, they never release poor content.

And before someone says "Except GTA: IV" or something similar, GTA: IV was a great game. Just not to your taste.
