This is pretty much the only franchise and the only company which I have complete confidence in.
THQ went to hell. Bethesda went to hell.
Rockstar and it's flagship franchise are still strong as hell.
I loved GTAIV and still play it to this day. Looking at what they did with Red Dead and Max Payne, I can't wait to see what they put into the story for GTAV.
Plus the multiplayer. GTAIV was their first Sandbox Multiplayer game, it's functions were fairly rudimentary. Red Dead expanded considerably, Max Payne 3's DLC focused all but exclusively on Multiplayer.
I used to play Battletoads on a 2" B&W TV w/ no sound & a half broken controller in 10' of snow uphill both ways! You kids don't know what hard is!
