A GTA MMORPG could be a whole lot of fun, especially if you could choose between being Law Enforcement or a Gangster. If a Gangster broke the law, they would then flag themself for any Law Enforcement characters to come after them.

Damn, this guy deserves a promotion. This is obviously the result of intense profound analysis and not common sense.

My goodness!
An extension of a critically-acclaimed kazillion-selling videogame franchise would be commerically successful?
Knock me down with a feather - I'm shocked by this bold punditry!

I can see it now.

Scenario One: Save up, Buy That Sweet New Car, Get Car Jacked.

Scenario Two: Pick the "Hooker" class, Sell Services, Get Killed and Have Your Money Stolen Back.

I think that a lot of the draw of the GTA series is that you can do anything you want. This is clearly not the case with the current generation of MMOs. Either it wouldn't be any fun or it would be griefer paradise.

I'd bet the farm on the latter. It's pretty much the inevitable result of any "it's fun to be a sociopath!" MMO system. About the only way any of them are going anywhere is if they start paying people to be professional victims for their emotionally stunted customers.

Unless they vastly reworked the formula, a GTA MMO would have all the long term success of Auto Assault.

GTA MMO, not if it's as boring and dull as the past few GTA's. Not to mention buggy and didn't even work on the PC properly.

Thanks, but no thanks. Rockstar does console games, and I don't play console games.

But I do love the comments here, idiots get paid big money to say what the rest of us have been saying for years. Obviousness isn't so obvious to corporate exec's, obviously.

Not until you loose that M rating kids

You think Second Life age verification is unpleasant, this is a claymore mine in your face.

First time mom comes home and junior is backing over a ho the lawsuit wave starts to never end.

Not that this stops anyone now. I can't tell you how many 9 year olds have taught me new words on GTA IV multi-player (in several languages). Mom and Dad need to administer the Ritalin more regularity.
