"Unheard of" is not what comes to mind when I see Grand Theft Auto, Driver & Soul Reaver in the list!

I picked that title because I haven't seen anyone tackle the small number of open-world games on the PS1. Same for Metroidvanias on the PS2, which should come soon.

Looking forward to that ps2 metroidvania one.

I see! And definitely not a criticism. I really liked the article, I just found it funny :D

Looking forward to the Metroidvania follow up!

Urban Chaos is seriously underrated

KyRo12h ago

Everyone I've ever spoken to about it has never heard of it. It was waaaay ahead if its time.

Scissorman17h ago

Urban Chaos! I haven't seen that game in years.

I never thought of those games as open-world games, but now that I think back on it, those games did have quite huge worlds for their time.


All The Reasons GTA V Is Still Alive and Kickin’ After 10 Years

As Grand Theft Auto approaches its 10th anniversary, Rockstar Games is revving up to celebrate this iconic game and show appreciation to its dedicated player base. Ten years is an insanely long time for a game to remain relevant within the current gaming world. But Rockstar has proven that through constant updates and listening to fans, their games can last a generation.

Was a nice read! GTA V needs to end though. I need my GTA VI fix lol

It's still around because all the creative people who had any vision left the company due to mismanagement, greed (not paying bonuses, same as Modern Warfare 2 devs back in the days of old Infinity Ward) and no vision of what GTA 6 should look like, settings, playable characters etc.
GTA 6 has been in development hell since 2013 right after GTA 5's initial PS3/360 launch. You can't make great games without creative people and this proves it.

Because sheep keep buying shark cards and in game currency.

Crazy that with how big Rockstar are they've only done GTAV and RDR2 within the past 10 years

Knightofelemia16d ago (Edited 16d ago )

10 years and on three console generations and they are still milking the game.

Flewid63815d ago

Cant milk something if people aren't buying it.

sadraiden15d ago

No, I think you can still say it's being milked if people are buying it. You milk a cow right? So you don't just throw the milk out, you sell it.

Man, to think how excited I was when GTA5 released 10 years ago, today…wonderful times!

I’m grateful that GTA5 was a big success, sales wise on Day 1 with $800 million made and hitting the 1 billion mark by day 3 of its release of memory serves me correct, a groundbreaking feat, showcasing the power of the GTA name, it’s popularity and impact in the gaming world that knows no bounds, with continually striving to revolutionize the open world landscape, it’s always a thrill, thanks to Rockstar and their incredible team. But dang, that online MP, it’s a blessing and curse. Knowing it delivered some good times for my friends and myself, along with others all over the world (never spent a penny on it) but how people just bought shark cards, Rockstar just milking it, it just blows my mind how things could’ve been different if the MP wasn’t as successful or better yet, was as successful as it turned out to be, but R* hadn’t become greedy and changed when all that cash started to flow in from the online mode. Maybe then we could’ve actually gotten some other follow up games from beloved properties that they own such as Max Payne, Manhunt, L.A. Noire 2 etc.

Anyways, hopefully the money made from GTA5’s online will truly benefit both the SP and online MP modes (not just the online MP with the possibility of a changing world etc) but that the SP story/open world which I’m not too worried about really brings groundbreaking tech to once again revolutionize the open world landscape, while also expanding upon the amazing and revolutionary things that RDR2 introduced with the NPC’s etc. But also, referring to GTA6 there’s talk about R* having hired 20 people supposedly for just the new water simulation stuff that R* wants to accomplish with the game being set in Vice City, oh the possibilities.

Either way, I’ve been far removed from Los Santos and will NEVER be returning. I look forward to making my new residence Vice City, hopefully within the next year or so😂🙏🏼

We definitely wouldn't have gotten any other games from Rockstar as they merged their studios to develop RDR2.

isarai16d ago

More like a decade to get over, make a new game instead of milking the same one to death.

_Decadent_Descent16d ago

Wow, 10 years and still no GTA VI.
