North created GTA, as you all know, and San Diego created games like RDR and Midnight Club. But if you had to choose between the two, who would you choose?

North. I am a fan of Midnight Club, but I'd take GTA over it any day. Still haven't gotten around to playing RDR or LA Noire.

San Diego didn't create LA Noire. They might have had a role in its development but it was created by Team Bondai.

I like GTA and R* Norths work, but when it comes to quality I feel that San Diego has been doing a better job. That is probably because they don't often have the full force of the spotlight on them 24/7 and are able to do work at their own pace because of that. I often hear horror stories from supposed " former employees " of R* who often state that the conditions are less than adequate and that the company is very disorganized.  To me it seems that may be true with some studio's, but I think R*SD may not have these issues or they are at least less prevalent. I'm not trying to knock the rest of R* down in any way, but in my honest opinion R*SD seems to be the brightest star in this constellation of Rockstars.

LA Noire was created by Team Bondi.

Rockstar North has been the "king" of Rockstar Game's studios (unless you want to consider the "regular Rockstar", a.k.a. "Rockstar NYC" as such) for quite a while now.  However, I believe Rockstar San Diego may have potentially reached Rockstar North levels or even surpassed them with Red Dead Redemption.

If I read LA Noire's credits well, Team Bondi did the bases of the game, but R* North, San Diego, Leeds and NYC did most of it.

----------

And R* North would be my choice. The made all the GTA games.

San Diego, not because of RDR but because of Midnight Club LA. I'd say MCLA is hands down best racing game this gen, tied with Burnout Paradise.

San Diego and North should defo work together on a GTA-style racing game. San Diego would do vehicle modelling, customisation and map design, and North would do all the on-foot stuff like shooting mechanics.

Los Angeles in MCLA was far better than LS in GTAV imo. Maybe San Diego would do the map as a whole, then North would add the details in. Santa Monica Pier in MCLA had an awesome jump linking to the freeway. In V? Nothing.

North is the best. And always will be. But San Diego has IMO pretty much level'd themselves up with North with RDR. I doubt they will ever overtake them. Midnight Club is utter sh*t IMO.

That LA map is trash don't make me laugh even LA Noire's map is better constructed . Rockstar San Diego is a joke anyway, they hit one spot with RDR but people forget all the other sh*t that they made before .

I wonder if GTA would be better if San Diego and North both worked on the games.

It worked wonders for RDR. As North did help them with development.

 

Overall I'd say North because of GTA.
