What are your thoughts on Dan Houser's writing?

I think R* rely too much on overdramatacizing their characters and stories. When taken too far it could make their stories cheesy and unoriginal like with V. It seems to work best in a gritty game like IV where all the characters are believably vicious cutthroats and doesn't work so well in V where all the characters are bland stereotypes with little depth.

 

The best writing by Houser is his work on Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2, for obvious reasons.

 

I tend to believe the best written Rockstar game is L.A. Noire yet it wasn't written by Houser. The characters are well fleshed out, believable and relatable and the character arcs are amazing. Team Bondi shouldn't have went down the way it did.

It just games like San Andreas, TBOGT and GTA V where it's not so good.

Sometimes I wondered if the story of those games were written by him, especially GTA V's story.

 

I didn't get far enough in TBOGT, and San Andreas I flat out gave up on without even getting to San Fierro. I did beat GTA V though.

 

Also, im sorry for the bump, I wasn't paying attention to the date that the comments were posted. :(

San Fierro is the best part of GTA SA imo.

What the hell is people's problem with TBOGT?

I technically have nothing to say about it, since I didn't get that far.
