Grand Theft Auto will not remain the largest mainstream video game franchise.

According to the numbers - and to a certain analyst - the times that Grand Theft Auto has enjoyed as the largest mainstream video game franchise is coming to a close. In fact, it may have already ended without us noticing. Analyst for Wedbush Securities, Michael Pachter commented:

"Call of Duty is bigger, and GTA will not maintain its position as the world's biggest mainstream franchise,"

Stating the obvious, even for Pachter.

"Call of Duty is bigger, and GTA will not maintain its position as the world's biggest mainstream franchise,"

It helps when you release a dam game every 12months and behiend each release is more hype then 10semi's full of high junkies.

The Sun has set on the GTA empire.

I prefer Red Dead Redemption anyway...

What you dont get is Gtas sun never sets. Call of duty will eventually die out (maybe in the next two years) while people will want Gta forever

Just keep the GTA quality going rockstar, it's not like you struggle with sales anyway.

I'm not a fan of Call of Duty, I have played the last three games and I dont see the point of buying anymore as I feel like they are just releasing the same generic game year, after year, after year, after year, after year..... only difference is that it looks a little prettier.

And in Black Ops's case, the graphics actually looked worse than in MW2. I didn't really understand why that was either. I hope when I pick up MW3, the graphics are at least MW2 quality.

I think it was the theater mode that did it.

And (though CoD4 came very close) CoD will never pass GTA quality wise.

Though GTA losing its crown is somewhat arguable. Look at RDR and LA Noire as the "distractions" between GTA releases and they still sold well. People love them some R*.

Oh well, just going and make a Manhunt 3 R*.

Or at least a HD collection.

MeatAbstract2253d ago

Oh I'd love a Manhunt 3. Never played 2 but I loved Manhunt and if they made a third which stuck true to the original then I'd definately go for it.

Bathyj2253d ago

I thought you might. ;)
