“We’re deliberately avoiding [first-person shooters] right now. It’s in our DNA to avoid doing what other companies are doing. I suppose you could say that Max Payne 3 is something close to an FPS, but there are really unique aspects to the setting and gameplay there, too, not just in the story. You have to have originality in your games; you have to have some kind of interesting message. You could say that the goalpoint of Rockstar is to have the players really feel what we’re trying to do.” – Rockstar VP Dan Houser to Famitsu, via 1UP. Thanks, Yoshi.
