After an extended break beginning in the spring of 2019, Dan Houser, Vice President, Creative at Rockstar Games, will be leaving the company. Dan Houser’s last day will be March 11, 2020. We are extremely grateful for his contributions. Rockstar Games has built some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful game worlds, a global community of passionate fans and an incredibly talented team, which remains focused on current and future projects.
Curiously, I feel like Rockstar has the opposite problem, specifically putting out new stuff without polishing the old stuff. Their games are entertaining and chock full of content, but it’s despite the awful user-experience. Seriously, it’s borderline infuriating how difficult it is to matchmake with friends, and that’s even before considering their lax or non-existing content moderation. It’s a modder/cheater’s paradise.
My co-op group was messing around with GTA Online this week, which is fantastic once you’re in an instanced session. However, it also does all sorts of dumb things, like it doesn’t even filter activities based on player count. Instead it just ejects random players from the lobby if you’re over the activity limit.
