Can GTA Kiss Its Crown Goodbye?

Grand Theft Auto has been considered one of the kings of open world experiences. But a lot of challengers have stepped up to steal its thunder. Can the series remain on top?

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!

Sparta0737d ago

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

joab77736d ago

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

RememberThe35736d ago

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

RosweeSon36d ago

Yeah because a similar game is anywhere near GTA sales.

2pacalypsenow37d ago (Edited 37d 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.

Paytaa37d 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.

Haurus37d ago

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

Kabaneri37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

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.

BlakHavoc37d 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.

Kabaneri36d ago


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

Barricade_BE36d ago (Edited 36d ago )


You said the most valuable IP in the entire entertainment industry. Star Wars has 8 main movies and many more, animated series, merchandise etc.
GTA V being this big of a success doesn't automatically make GTA the most valuable IP out there. It could be, but I'm not too sure. I don't know how much every IP in the entertainment business is worth.

Hell, Avatar made 3 billion dollars worldwide just with theater sales, and that was 1 movie. Who knows how much that IP will be worth with 3 more movies scheduled to come out?

All these things aside, ofcourse GTA won't be surpassed anytime soon. Why anyone would even think that goes beyond me.

SierraGuy37d ago

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

UnSelf37d ago

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

jairusmonillas36d 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.

SierraGuy36d ago

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

XMessiah23x37d ago

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

ninsigma37d 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_Kakashi37d ago

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

Steveoreno137d ago

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

CDbiggen36d ago

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

annoyedgamer37d ago

Remember Watch Dogs? Me neither.

CDzNutts36d ago

Sleeping Dogs on the other hand was amazeballs.
