New York Times Q&A with Dan Houser

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 09:00 PM MDT | By Ash_735

As we move into the promotional stage for Grand Theft Auto V, it's good to hear what Dan Houser has to say every now and then. Recently the New York Times published an article where they had a Q&A session with the man where he explains what he thinks about the genre, how powerful he thinks Open World Games can truly be and reveal some interesting rules such as the following:
Q. The closest thing to Grand Theft Auto I can think of that someone is doing in a different medium is the work of David Simon, who has tried to capture cities, in “The Wire” but even more so in “Treme.” It’s quite different, but TV is similar in the sense that people spend 30, 40 hours with a show.

A. I haven’t seen “Treme.” I never even saw “The Wire.” One of my weird disciplines is that I don’t really watch a lot of those shows, if they relate to what we do. I only watched a tiny bit of “The Sopranos.” No “Boardwalk Empire.” No “Breaking Bad.” Wherever it’s too close to crime, gangster, underbelly fiction, and it’s supercontemporary, I decided, for professional reasons, I have to avoid it.
