GTA:O has only been up for 3 days so I can't give my 100% opinion on it.
First day- Of course I tried to get online (ya just gotta ) But anyone with half a brain will know there are going to be bugs and plenty of things for R* to iron out so no real biggie here. GTAIV had issues for weeks, being stuck at loading screens etc etc.
The Parents/Grand Parents.
Not sure if I missed something when a little information about online was being released but I have no clue as to why they added this. I find it completely unnecessary. Very bad feature IMO. For those that have played that terrible game called Saints Row and how you can create your own character, I believe there were a ton of options. They should have just did this for online characters. Pick a face structure, alter it by eyes, hairline, ears, mouth, skin tone, body weight, things that can really make your character unique from the rest. If you want to add the option of custom characters for people for gods sake, do it right. (I do not feel this way myself, my brother has had no issues playing on xbox with other people in full lobbies and almost everyone he has talked to thinks the parent/grandparent things is terrible)
I like this for online, tracker, insurance, you can lock your doors so no one else can steal it is kind of nice. I have made my own personal car however when I got off online and then got back on I have no clue as to where or how I can get my car back. Perhaps I missed one of the dialogue boxs that probably explained that. O well I'll figure it out.
Stealing cars and the police.
Not really liking that I get 1 to 2 stars when a cop spots me in a stolen car. Sure this happens in a real life situation, but it only happens if they run the plates to find out that its stolen. Are you telling me the police in GTA are instantly scanning all the cars in traffic to find out whats stolen or not? Also since when did security guards become officers of the law. I had a security guard shoot at me for being in a stolen car WTF!
Insane, its just ridiculous online. Scared to even die in the game. I havent even been able to play a deathmatch on ps3, however Im happy I haven't since from a few different post I read on here you apparently lose money everytime you die in deathmatch. Really R*?
Why not let us pay a large lump sum for health insurance or something to cover us when we die so that we don't have to pay out 2k everytime we die. Then let the health insurance expire after a while and then repurchase it over again. I think I read on here of people still losing money even if its all deposited into your bank account. Another for R*
How can anyone go do crazy stunts with friends online without the worry of death and losing thousands of dollars.
How about a Free Roam where you can gain money and rank up, then a Free Roam where you can't rank up or lose money.
I suppose this is to keep people from camping? But the little message with "Time remaining before you are kicked for idling." Welp, no going to take a sh*t when you are online fellas, might come back to find out you were kicked from the game.
This isn't COD, don't think camping has ever really been that big of an issue when playing gta online.
Can't comment on much else since I haven't been able to experience everything.
