Seems like they are...

or just speculating to get some 'clicks'...

everyone knows - the real GTA killer is GTA! even GTA San Andreas is still killing straight head shots anyone who dares to come close!

Maybe red dead 2!?
But as far as any other game, is not gonna happen.

joab777268d ago

It's funny how we ask this question concerning a game released last gen?

RememberThe357267d ago

Sort of answers the question in itself, doesn't it?

RosweeSon268d ago

Yeah because a similar game is anywhere near GTA sales.

2pacalypsenow269d ago (Edited 269d ago )

lol, reminds me of the "Halo killer" days when any FPS was coined that, hell even games like Street Crimes and Driver 3 tried taking on GTA and they all failed, the only thing that can kill GTA is GTA.

Paytaa268d ago

Yeah Haze was set to kill Halo. Halo died that day /s

GTA is too much of a behemoth for a random game to just outdo it in quality and sales.

Haurus268d ago

Haze was actually never once claimed as a Halo killer by the developer. It was just Sony fanboys that said it.

GTA5 was the #6 highest selling game last year; 3 years after the initial launch. GTA is quite possibly the most valuable IP in the entire entertainment industry.

BlakHavoc268d ago

In the entire entertainment industry? Hmm, that's interesting, I honestly don't know but I'd imagine something like Star Wars is more valuable.

Kabaneri268d ago


Not even close, name one Star Wars movie that produced more revenue than GTA5.

There probably wouldn't even be GTA if it wasn't for Driver on PS1. What an awesome game.

UnSelf268d ago

GTA was actually on ps1 and it came out before Driver.

jairusmonillas268d ago

This is true, Driver 1 and especially Driver 2 were great on PS1. GTA 3 pretty much stole Driver's gameplay mechanics and simply added weapons and stuffs it's like GTA 3 was the real sequel to Driver 2.

SierraGuy267d ago

@unself the first two GTA games were top down crap @jairusmonillas you couldn't be more correct.

XMessiah23x269d ago

I stopped reading when I saw a pic of FF15. That game was awful, I so wanted to like that game too.

ninsigma269d ago

It had its problems but I wouldn't say awful. I enjoyed it. I'd rather play ff15 than GTA but no, it's not going to take any crown from Rockstars behemoth franchise 😂

Sharingan_no_Kakashi268d ago

Same. I loved ffxv and i'm not particularly a fan of gta, but it still holds the crown.

Steveoreno1268d ago

Agreed. Thought it was awful too. Long time ff fan.

CDbiggen268d ago

I shouldn't have gone back to XV last night after playing Horizon and Zelda recently, it just felt completely empty.

annoyedgamer269d ago

Remember Watch Dogs? Me neither.

CDzNutts268d ago

Sleeping Dogs on the other hand was amazeballs.
