Well maybe that's because Justin Bieber has a much larger fanbase? I don't like his music at all but obviously he has talent otherwise he wouldn't be as hugely popular as he is.

It's like everything that's successful, there's reason for it. Why is Apple so successful? because their products are quality. Why do God of War, Call of Duty, Gran Turismo, Grand Theft Auto, Gears of War, Elder Scrolls, The Last of Us etc dominate their genres in sales? The truth is MOST of the time sales depend on quality, advertising can only help so much before word of mouth gets around.

So sales normally coincide with quality especially if it's a game with mainstream appeal, a.k.a. nothing quirky or artsy etc.

That's crazy but great at the same time, took over the crown from COD. Congrats R* eventhough the online still has problems, the story was awesome and much better than GTA IV in my opinion.
