    Star Wars The Old Republic should 100% be on this list. Pretty sure it is the most expensive game ever made besides GTAIV. Star Citizen doesn't count because they havent spent nearly any of that money.

    You picked these virtually at random from a collection of games you likely heard about, or played yourself. There are over two dozen titles above 80 million a modicum of research would have turned up. (especially since we get to count canceled games) As I do not have time to list them all I will only list titles above the cost of your number #1.

    PS. These are NOT scaled to inflation. And in no particular order.
    1. Final fantasy 7 --- 145 million.
    2. Star Wars The old republic -- 200+ million
    3. Grand Theft Auto 5 -- 265 Million.
    4. Destiny --142 million
    5. Call of Duty Modern warfare 2 -- 250 million.

    This is a corporate channel not an individual. You should be able to afford a researcher. But if not, the 16 year old nephew of one of your secretaries could have used google on his phone and turned up more accurate results in under an hour.

    I can't believe you guys didn't include the $50 million Rockstar 2008 epic, L.A. Noire. That still ranks as my Top 10 game of all time. That employed state-of-the-art 3D mapping of actors' faces onto players, fully dynamic playability of its environment, quality story lines, and an open world concept. Oh, and it was set back in the '40s and '50s. It's a shame you never mentioned this as Rockstar is considering a sequel to this classic game.
