I've been reading some of the comments and what not on Rockstars newswire and the news section on Social Club and man there are a lot of unhappy campers out there. Seems like a lot of people are really really pissed off with them and I can understand why. All things considering GTAV has been the most anticipated game for what... 5yrs? and when the game finally does come out there is nothing but bugs and holes. It's not like they didn't have time to do a lot of the sh*t that's f*cked up with it. Yes programing does take quite awhile but for a billion dollar company this kind of sh*t shouldn't be happening or at the very least should have been tip top 100% within about a week. The game itself has been out for almost a month and it's had a sh*t ton of problems (luckily for me I never experienced them) and GTAO their new 'revolutionary' way of open world online gaming has been a total bust.
to figure out why.
Don you and I are on point!
I understand that games have bugs and all that sh*t but wtf rockstar has made games like this before, they have tons of money, hell they even had 2 damn weeks before it even came out after release.. did they not once try out their f*cking cloud servers? did they not once try out their game? that's what pisses me off, I understand they cant catch everything but damn millions of fans not even able to join past the retarded tutorial sure seemed like it shouldn't have been missed. which is funny cause it pisses me off but I was able to play from day 1.
done with the cussing, as for free roam as I mentioned thousands of times lol I came from RDR I was all about the free roam, and the posse engagements be it randoms, or full blown organized crews with websites, meetings, assassinations, etc.. GTA 5 what the hell is even the point of being in free roam? no crew engagements, randoms killing you left and right, losing 2k, cant defend yourself cause then you get annoying cops on you that make you lose 2k...
16 players limits everything, no sneaking unless you pay annoying ass lester, items cost you a nut sack and an eye while jobs that make you waste all your ammo only pay you 1k-3k after a 30 min run..
just today I finally customized my buccaneer, and as soon as I drove out (my friend was in it with me) an HTC President (his name) waits and ak's my friend as soon as he gets out to get into his car and starts spraying my car, I got out, and sniped him point blank and then another one of my friends rode up..... after a while I ran from cops because you know I should shoot someone who tries to destroy my car and this HTC guys gets back up I manage to kill everyone 2-3 times without dying as im trying to take my car back and make sure my friends don't die.. it was fun but in the end we didn't want any conflict because of the unnecessary 2k medical bill.
I mean I join you guys in jobs that pay 9-10k but other than that they are so damn boring to me (not you guys the missions) ive done races to the point I have like 70+ wins and 80 losses (only 18 unlegit) but damn am I getting tired of those, TDM's are cool but forget wasting my own ammo and money when I cant even pick ammo up to begin with. Free roam, dull as can be no crew engagement, no point in having a brawl, gun fight etc.., everything is overpriced, no way of making money, nothing at all! just drive around, rob a store, and try not to die..
I expected to protect Don, the crew, etc.. from outsiders, spies, and all that but sh*t I don't even think other crews would even want to risk it at all considering you just lose more money than its worth. I once lost 50k trying to get a bounty of 1k from a guy who was camping (a good spot) while he sniped my friend and I just got killed by cops over and over again, and when I gave up didn't matter I can easily be seen on the radar all day no matter what..
idk maybe we should organize more crew stuff in free roam, like that one day we rolled up in an Albany I believe and mobbed on a bounty target four man deep lol it was probably the best moment I've had online.
or we can still do missions that don't pay much and chill there but I honestly don't find the missions fun at all unless the pay is worth it,, driving 5k miles back and forth, kill 300 men, deliver papers, end mission 5k reward.. ehh not worth it..
I feel like bank jobs (heist) wont have good payouts especially if the cash is divided, probably will be cool the first week and once again were at the wtf to do now stage or hell they might even be a mission where you can only have 3 people or so..
ive had great times with people in races and in free roam, cause there have been so many hilarious moments but damn the game gets pretty dull at times.
PS I cut your quote short so my post wouldn't be such a hassle to read even though it probably already is lol
I also wish R* would stop being greedy ass devs like the war z (infestation) devs where everything was about cash, sure they say its optional to buy things with RL money but f*ck they sure seem to be pushing people into buying them
