Dan Houser Exits Rockstar Games

So, this is pretty big news.

But my first reaction was… Good? For one, I feel like Dan was probably behind a lot of the labor issues at Rockstar. As Jason says:

But I’m also excited to hopefully see a lead writer enter Rockstar who isn’t interested in being the video game equal of a South Park episode. Rockstar games has been suffering for some actual good writing for years now. RDR 2 was a good start at something better, but they still have miles to go.

Dan Houser has a writing credit on Max Payne 3 - the most anti-american and anti-capitalist AAA game in the last 10 years. Nevertheless, Dan Houser is also an ego maniacal shithead who doesn’t deserve to semi-retire using the spoils of working his employees to death.
