Games Shrine - That 'Bully' game that Rockstar made is good, isn't it?

'Bully is my favourite Rockstar game. By a country mile. Controversial opinion? Well, possibly. But Rockstar Vancouver's PS2 playground-'em-up grabbed me in a way that more celebrated and hyped titles such as GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption have failed to do, and -- I must shamefacedly admit -- it is the only Rockstar game I've ever been motivated enough to complete.

Years after its release, I'm still playing Bully -- now on the Wii's 'Scholarship Edition' after playing it originally on the PlayStation 2 -- and it's not got the biggest open-world to explore, nor is its fighting system particularly deep or nuanced. So why am I still playing it? Well, I think I just enjoy the school setting. Not in a suspicious beard-and-glasses-combo-lurkin g-outside-the-school-gates kind of way, it's just nice to be in an environment that hasn't already been done to death -- and it's a sad indictment on the games industry that titles such as Bully come along so rarely.' - Matt Suckley (Bully, Bully: Scholarship Edition, PC, PS2, Retro, Rockstar Games, Wii, Xbox 360)

It was just fun to Play. Hope they make a Next gen game in a college setting that would rock.

Was definitely a good game, I think Red Dead Revolver was my favourite Rockstar game on PS2 though..

Still waiting on Bully 2.

Bully made being a teen in this generation worth it. I had a list of music that fit playing through endless summer.

Kinda wished Rockstar acknowledged Non-GTA games more....
