The game was okay but why did it take that long To make and why wasn't that guy fired rockstar is lucky they left

it became a labour of love for them and Rockstar.. most probably after they decided to make it a technical show piece, and not release it too close to Heavy Rain so as to have no competition upon release, and then it became more than just a game. thankfully they had the budget for that and the time left in the console cycle to release it.

can't speak to why McNamara wasn't fired by mutiny at Bondi or by Rockstar and replaced by one of their own, besides it being his company and that they were always showing encouraging results to the people paying the bills, but again, without competition the game released early might not have been worth the investment.

The take-away is that other asshats can point at Bondi and say look we can treat our code slaves like actual slaves and expect results, while other companies like GPG that have better overtime policies might have a harder time justifying them especially to a big publisher that demand better games on smaller budgets in less time because they can't afford for risk several years of costly development on any one project.

that makes sense for the wait but the game was still okay it was a bit innovative and a change from usual gta but i still wont support McNamara and this ambition ever
