You have a point. Just Cause 2, while undoubtedly fun, soon got incredibly boring but mainly due to the horrible A.I.
The reason Rockstar games are so great is primarily due to their use of the Euphoria game engine which provides realistic NPC interaction and makes shootouts,driving and general play so much more enjoyable than other games such as SR3 and JC2.
Also, L.A. Noire was developed by Bondi Studios in Australia and was published, not developed, by Rockstar.

Mmos do a good job. It being real players and all. Rockstar oughta make GTA ONLINE at least 32 players. (64-150 would be the best)

Now it's whining about open world.
Open worlds = better, it's just up to the developer to fill it properly
