Maybe for you. I wasn't promised anything. In fact Red Dead Revolver was awful, so Redemption way over delivered, and given that LA Noire was a brand new IP, it also WAYYYY over delivered. GTA Episodes were just icing on an otherwise amazing cake. Midnight Club I could care a less about though.
Umm, there's no price gauging or trickery though. You get four games for the cost it would be to buy all those game's separately. If you think Rockstar is depending on this pack of games to finance a project like GTA V, you're straight up bonkers.
Also which game developer doesn't need money bad? Sounds like you feel neglected that this pack is coming out instead of GTA V.
