Rockstar boss Dan Houser’s told the Telegraph that writing games allows more freedom than creating movies and books, despite the fact other mediums are more respected.

“I hope it’s long,” he said when asked on what timescale he thought games would be given the same respect as other mediums.

“It’s really fun at the moment because we’re not in any Academy and the medium’s not codified. There’s no accepted way of doing anything so that give us enormous pleasure because we can make it up as we go along,” he added.

“Movies and TV and books have become so structured in the way they have to approach things. Not working in that environment gives us enormous freedom. I’d rather keep the freedom and not have the respect.”
