Bully must rank as the worst Rockstar game after State Of Emergency !!!

Menace + Blood Money (as DMA genre busting side scrolling shooters, r-type eat your heart out) Lemmings (as DMA quality set of puzzle games) Body Harvest (again as DMA began the trend for openworld/sandbox styled gaming, about as under rated as they come gameplay wise) Grand Theft Auto series (all of them from the top down versions to the genre breaking III/VC/SA/IV are fantastic, such a shame they never brought their Stories offshoots to the xbox), Midnight Club series (great fast paced racers), Max Payne & Manhunt (a touch more average but both heaps of fun) Table Tennis (just table tennis but wow did they really nail it why did they never tackle other sports sims) Red Dead series (like GTA another fantastic set of games with so much depth of play) L.A. Noire (more inventive jaw dropping stuff).

You can't fault them, with the exception of the dire State Of Emergency they've not made a bad game (they're like the gaming inequivalent of Pixar). As for Bully do we really need or want a 2nd ? I agree it wasn't the worst game ever but for most part it was pretty much forgettable and like some have already mentioned the lead character was annoying.

I would like a second one. Thought the first was gold.

I enjoyed Bully. It was not an amazing game, but it was fun. I am looking forward to the second one.

Yeah I played it just recently for a few days and I enjoyed it. I can't say if it's the worst Rockstar game ever but I do know it's fun. I'm curious if they would follow the same lead or have it take place at the same school. I suppose it'd be fun if you came up as a new character at the same school and had to topple the first game's lead.

I enjoyed the first. Even played thru twice, once on the PS2 and then again for the 360. Looking forward to the second.

Well it seemed like a leap for Rockstar to try it and it worked great, just like L.A. Noire did. I think a second game would require more work and effort because it couldn't coast off of originality alone. So it will be years before we see a second one, if at all. I personally would like to see one

They have never made a bad game...Bully wasn't a bad game. What's your point?

Some people really loved this game, and there's definitely money to be made from a sequel.

I personally enjoyed Bully far more than LA Noire. LA Noire was over-hyped and it just didn't deliver for me. Bully was given average hype and turned out to be pretty great.


By the way do you really find GTA: Chinatown Wars a good game, or Manhunt? You can't tell me those are better games than Bully.

First was great. R*'s 2nd best game after Vice City.

What is OP on ? The game was bloody great, it was something completely different. I don't ever remember having a game where you go to school, go to class, go to lunch have a food fight and then after school break car windows. I don't know about it being forgettable, ive heard people wanting a second one for years. Not to many could of forgot about it.

Clearly you meant Manhunt 2, TC, because that game was utter garbage which pales in comparison with the gorgeous original. Bully is not only one of the finest games published by R*, but also one of the best I've ever played on ps2.

I really enjoyed Bully, although it's my least favorite game from Rockstar I still loved it.
