I think I'm one of many who can honestly say the character creation in GTAO is pretty awful, they genuinely look like burn victims.

 

I would like to see some change to this in the future, definitely.

Don't even give me that. The characters ALL look the same. You get the Beetlejuice headed guy or John marston. 

 

They REALLY need to rethink this feature and added more sliders on appearance.

I don't like how the default is made off your lifestyle activities. I had to fiddle around with the sliders for ages to get a default guy that had the hat I wanted. I mean I know you'll be able to buy all this stuff in stores when we get on, but still. I agree with OP, needed face sliders here, they all look the same.

Does it randomly add bruises to your face afterward like it did to me?

I ended up with a wade look alike that looked like he tried to fight Trevor then dragged down the GOH before deciding to put on an Los Santos hat. I love it. xD

The "activities you spend time doing" when creating your character effect your characters appearance. The more time you spend "Doing illegal work" the more scarred and ugly you character will look. The more time you spend working out the younger you will look for your age. Its not super alterable and not super intuitive but you definitely can have a reasonable effect on your appearance as long as your willing to sacrifice your initial stats.

Also your activity choices effect your initial clothing.

I feel like women are easier to create, the men look f*cking horrible. I hope R* fixes the customization and gives me an option to recreate mine.

worst character creation menu in the history of character creation menu's :p

 

the genius who came up with this concept should be fired imo. what a retarded way of thinking "making it more realistic" are you frekin kidding me now everyone looks the same bcouse out of the mere 20ish diffrent characters you are actually able build only 2 of them dont look like they got some horrible disease or deformed face. think they rlly dropped the ball on this part

Fallout had a much better customization.

I'd love to defend R* with this, but hell no. Everyone looks the same. The facial hair is all the same, and looks penciled on. You can either look like a f*cking Beetlejuice wannabe, or too much of a pretty boy.

It's just bad. At least there's a weight adjustment thing, somewhat in the stats. Like, no f*cking Mohawk even? No beards? Come on.

Now we know why in none of the trailers/pics from R* the player's face was shown.

its not user friendly for sure.. but there are ways to make it look like you want. You have to experiment with it to understand how it works.
