Now i am not one for whining about GTA5, i love the game but seriously, the online character customisation sucks big time.

 

I HAVE to choose from a small group of pre set faces for my grandparents which determines how my character looks? That is BS. I cant even change my characters facial features.

Wow that´s bad news. I didn´t hope for something as big as the WWE games costumization for face morphing, but having just a handful of options is really lame.

Seriously dropped the ball here R*

 

You should be able to choose if you want to do the whole grandparents/parents thing. And be able to change their features so that they actually look like your real grandparents/parents.

 

So now i have a character that looks nothing like me.

I agree, looks like something on the PS2. Surely they will update this, it's like a beta at the moment!

I changed something in the lifestyle section and it completely changed the look of the character from young white skatery type into a 50 year old mexican in a suit?!

The servers being down i expect, im not really mad at that at all as i have other things to play (the singleplayer) but the customization is so bad. I understand the idea of your grandparents influencing your characters looks but i think it would have worked  much better if you could actually change your grandparents look  yourself.

Well its not as if I didnt call this..

 

Theyve never done anything like this and they shoved the development of both into one window.

 

As a CE owner I was not able to figure out how to get rid of the Claude, Niko, John M. options I was given for father....

I kind of liked the fact that you didn't micro-manage the details of your character - put in some random details and see what pops out. Detailed customisation would have been a nightmare - in a multiplayer game it would have been a mess, the servers are going to struggle as it is without worrying about the eye ridge height of all the players.

Star Trek Online has very detailed Character Customization. Ive seen people do everything from Umpa Lumpas to the Navi from Avatar.

 

Obviously it didnt need to be that complex of a character creation..But it could of been a lot better then what we got for sure.

Skyrim and Saints Row's character customization would have been good enough for me. Why can't we change the height, the weight or their build? And their faces not only look stupid, but they just look really bad from a graphical point of view, it's ugly.

Do you really have to nitpick? Can't you do something else to troll?

Oddly enough, I actually liked it, my issue was that after completing the character, I had to run a scripted event. Would not have been an issue except I was wanting to just check it out before I headed out the door for work this morning.

You wan't a character which looks just like you? I'm sure R* didn't really aim for you being able to create your entire familiy in GTA V.

How often are you people going to be staring at your own characters face? 0.0001% of the time. Stop whining about such insignificant things. You'll be able to goto barbers, tattoo studios and clothing stores in-game to change your appearence even further.

That's besides the point. Character CUSTOMIZATION should include facial and body customization. And yes i do want a character that looks like me, why would i want to play as someone who doesn't look like me? Stop sticking up for R*, you are allowed to criticize them you know.

And now you all realise that reviewers and other sites that talked about how great the feature is were lying their asses off or fanboys.. Because I heard a few youtube people including CVG saying how awesome the features were.

I must admit the character customization sucks ass, they made it sound so amazing, but they forgot to mention that no matter what grand parents/parents you choose the facial features barely change even the slightest bit.

Yeah, the Online character customization is disappointing. Kind of hoped it would be akin to the WWE Games series, but again this is the first time they've done something of this scale. Hoping you can further customize it once you get further in Los Santos. Assuming the servers work of course haha.
