Okay, so the heists are great. Real great. Great planning, great execution. But the premise of each heist is..Well..They piss me off. They're utter bullsh*t. Okay, so first heist is the jewelery heist. Everything goes well. I fork out maybe 4 million by going in stealthy. But guess what? That money ain't going to me or my crew. No, its going to some stupid Mexican motherf*cker with anger issues over a stupid house. Get ready for an angry rant because..WHAT THE f*ck!?? Okay, heists were all they talked about prior to release. That was the big marketing score. Being able to pull off heists. But whats the point when the money isnt even yours? Its stupid. And the jewelry heist ain't even the tip of the iceberg. What about Merryweather? When Lester practically threatens you to put it back in the ocean? What about the bank in the sticks? Sure, the mission is awesome. Its a great time! Its exciting. But then when you stop to think about it, you're just doing all this to buy a f*cking stupid helicopter for those FIB assholes.
The union depository heist is an exception..But thats the ONLY legit heist in the whole game? The only heist where you're doing it for YOU and your crew? Why couldn't they just steal a helicopter for the FIB? Why am I wasting my time doing all these heists for money that doesn't even go to me? Okay, so maybe I'll get a fraction..Like 200,000 for each character in the jewelry heist. But its just the fact that i went through all that awesome stuff, just to give it to that Madrazo asshole. When GTA V was coming out, they made it sound so awesome. I was hoping it would be like "Oh yeah, Micheal and Trevor back in action, becoming billionaires" but nooo..In the end, you're only pulling off the heist for someone else. Look, all the action ingame and all the glorified explosions are awesome. In every heist, I have a blast. But at the end of it, when I look at my balance, I find myself going "Oh..." in disappointment.
I'm a huge Rockstar fan, and I can forgive them for this. But its just the gall of it. The gall of overhyping the heists. Everything else ingame is perfect. But the heists, to me, are the only things that were overhyped. Maybe I'll be happy if GTA Online has some actual legit heists. But until then, this has to be the first time Rockstar has pissed me off.
