Games Shrine: That ‘Bully’ game that Rockstar made is well good, isn’t it?

‘Bully is my favourite Rockstar game. By a country mile. Controversial opinion? Well, possibly. But Rockstar  Vancouver’s PS2 playground-’em-up grabbed me in a way that more celebrated and hyped titles such as GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption have failed to do, and — I must shamefacedly admit — it is the only Rockstar game I’ve ever been motivated enough to complete.

Years after its release, I’m still playing Bully — now on the Wii’s ‘Scholarship Edition’ after playing it originally on the PlayStation 2 — and it’s not got the biggest open-world to explore, nor is its fighting system particularly deep or nuanced. So why am I still playing it? Well, I think I just enjoy the school setting. Not in a suspicious beard-and-glasses-combo-lurking-outside-the-school-gates kind of way, it’s just nice to be in an environment that hasn’t already been done to death — and it’s a sad indictment on the games industry that titles such as Bully come along so rarely.’
