R* made a bold move when they decided to make GTA:O an mmo, but in my opinion they have failed. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but this vast world they've created is empty and dead. No wildlife, an extremely low amount of enterable buildings, little traffic and pedestrians. I mean compare SP to Online, it feels like a completely different game. At least SP feels alive to a degree. We can't purchase businesses online, we are limited to repetitive missions and are forced to grind for things that aren't even worth grinding for. There is quite a bit of things to do, but they are either not rewarding or are lacking. This feels like an Alpha or Beta. It just feels dead already. Content will be added, but it won't be anything ver special. It will become stale and repetitive just like everything else has. They should have built this game for next gen, because there's a lot of potential in this game, but they won't be able to do much. I won't be playing this game once I get a next gen console. R* hyped this game too much and were deceiving about a lot of things.
And ironically, the game world is even more dead because the griefers have been banned to temp cyber purgatory
Not that I don't mind it quiet because I'm a SP gamer. But then there are times when I do login in order to take advantage of all the content I can't get in SP. And find nothing but crickets and tumbleweeds blowing in the wind.....
Which is even more ironic, because I'd swear there are hundreds of more peds and especially animals wandering the streets and hills of San Andreas. Online, I'd swear the ped population is substantially less. Went hiking up at Mt. Chiliad in passive mode the other night and never encountered any 2 legged animals let alone the 4 legged ones. And I've yet to spot as much as a bird anywhere on the back roads or desert areas in Blaine county
