A look back at Rockstar's best non-GTA title...

A history lesson on the subject of school-themed videogames would be a short one. It would begin, undoubtedly, with 1985's Skool Daze and its sequel, Back To Skool.... read more

Bully = Red Dead Redemption > LA Noire

Bully is a brilliant game, would love a sequel to come out but i get the feeling that it's something they'll never revisit.

I f**king hate video game snobs like you.
I've played all these and more.
In actual fact, I've played more games before you were an itch in your daddy's underpants!

More recently: Red Dead Redemption

Probably my favorite R* game would be Manhunt. It's a shame about all the controversy this game got dragged in to because i thought the concept behind it was utterly brilliant.

I think another crack with "the warriors" licence would be a good move, especially if film footage was mixed directly into the gameplay , and the film itself was on the blue ray.
"Warriors.........come out to play eeeeeeeeeeeee, Warriorrrrrrrsssssssssss come out to playyeeeeeeee" :D

Manhunt actually made me feel a bit odd at the time, and i wanted something a little more , well "fun" so i stopped playing it, may well have another look, because i think the concept does sound good (just a bit heavy)

I loved that game, and i also think the warriors was totally underrated as well. Manhunt was probably my favourite ps2 era rockstar game though....

Bully was awesome, but never as good as Red Dead Redemption or L.A. Noire

Loved RDR and LA Noire. But Bully had something really special. Played it on both 360 and Wii when it was re-released as Bully - 360 graphics/frame rate were better but Wii had the Wii Remote aiming which made the Nerd-defending, gun-emplacement style missions a heck of a lot easier.

Sure the graphics weren't up-to-scratch against the swathes of next-gen games it was put up against on re-release but the game world was so involving you really felt part of the school. Would love them to have another crack at it but I think the name-change really hurt initial sales and so not sure how financially succesful it was. As long as they didn't try to make it big for big's sake and instead maybe allowed you a bit more in the way of choice (something still sadly lacking in a lot of R* sandbox games) I'd buy it twice...again :D
