The wild West kill-or-be-killed can be a blast, however, there are times when I really want to do some co-op, missions, etc. You know, the rest of the game besides random CoD style murder for kicks.
But so what, its the internet in the CoD age, what can you do?
The issue I have is that GTAO is essentially a griefers paradise as far as taking progress (money) from your character. It's far too easy to just erase many many hours of progress from another player for about 30 seconds of kicks for the griefer.
Now, as much as the internet tough guys on this forum like to bloviate about sucking it up etc, Rockstar will see things differently as they game gets a rep as being harsh as say..Eve Online. Yes, yes, EO is doing well enough I know. Who is going to spend real world money just to have I r t3hpwnzerlol erase it in seconds.
Then again, maybe R* are just waiting for the bad sport thing to actually start sorting players first. Hope that happens fast. There should be an unprovoked murder penalty though, maybe some police stars or you get ported to the jail and have to break out instead of being busted. Something canon.
