Posted ImageDevelopmag have got themselves a very rare interview with Rockstar Games President, Sam Houser. They cover the impact of GTA IV, the direction of the industry and Rockstar's internal ethics and beliefs. Here's a few interesting quotes:

In order to be successful, we are going to have to continue to do what we have always done – make games that we would want to play, and hope there is audience for them.

Most of the people who hate us are people it is truly an honor to be hated by – reactionary creeps with strange agendas – and the Daily Mail. Most people who know about modern pop culture know about GTA and like or dislike it on its own merits.

We don’t want to get too much bigger in terms of teams, because the games need to have the personal touch and production values that are in them, and we can’t do that at a much bigger scale, but we will always look to work closely with excellent people when we come across them.

The problem with academia and prizes and awards and all the things the movie industry has wrapped itself in is that it constrains things too much. 99 per cent of movies are three acts told over two hours with very similar plot structures, camera work and so on. We can rip up the rule book every time we make a game as every aspect of every process gets reconsidered.

A lot of people have asked that question! No - it was not intentional or conscious.


lol?

But yeah, interesting read anyway. The best bit for me is when they claimed that they'd stop making games when people stopped enjoying them. Forward that shit to EA's CEO, now!

I dunno, nobody knows the future of this forum. And if a hacker comes or something and closes this thing?

On Topic: Yes, nice interview. Rockstar rocks. :P
