it's safe to say they succeeded
at this point it's tough to see what direction rockstar will head in. will they continue moving forward and make gta v an even more story focused game or will they go with a more lighthearted route? judging from red dead, it's probably going to become even more serious. i just hope they choose as a better protagonist. i liked nico but i didn't really identify with his character or care if he lived or died. maybe have someone that's forced and more reluctant to go back into crime with multiple story arcs depending how you play the game?
