why aren't there more wild west games?

There were literally thousands of wild west films in the 1950s. Is this theme politically incorrect these days in the USA or something? I am British

I'd say the majority of gamers would say they are boring.
Wild West games need to be carefully produced or else they'll bomb.
Red Dead Redemption was the exception to this.

It's not a very popular main stream genre anymore. They were big in the 50's because horses were the special effects lol. I myself love a good old western movie but the younger kid these days...all they want is their N'Sync and their marijuana.

This

I think the genre has potential but is way to risky for devs to sink money into

I try to keep it classy, but on gfaqs you've just got to get down and dirty with the trolls.

People will expect red dead redemption and will be greatly disappointed.

Since when the hell did that boy band pop back on scene? You must be out of the loop if you think they're what everyone wants lol.

While not nearly as good as RDR, Gun was a decent Wild West game.

I'm sure the console versions were considerably better than the PSP version lol. I owned the Xbox 360 version of the game.
