It's not very hard. You get one private dance point for 3 button presses. It ticks every time you press left D-pad to get a dance so just accept dance, press Y for her to stop then get up and repeat.

Yeah I know it's not hard, lol still isn't a proper reason for doing it :p
Didn't stop wanes from being a meany.

Why use a mic, all people want to do is talk sht or scream, if not that then it's some kid who's overly excited about robbing gas stations and liquor stores yet with even more screaming and voice cracking.. Aka a vast majority of gtao players...

Classy people don't use mics with the little public dredges of society. Nearly everybody using a mic is some obnoxious ghetto bastard or some spastic acne faced teen with a skinny stache. I only speak with people I deem worthy.

Another major problem is 9 times out of ten I get in a lobby with french kids and usually the only english they can speak is "Feck your mum",it`s funny the first few times then it just gets irritating.Is that all they get taught to say in english in France or what?

No. I only talk with friends in games and well, none of my friends like console much. Pretty much just waiting for Rockstar to stop being such gigantic assholes and release a PC version already.

This. Crew is pretty insular. Usually close match making and keep to ourselves.

No. I find that people who use them do worse than people who don't. 

This is coming from somebody who plays a LOT of deathmatch.


Often, I'm the team carrier and people who are talking on mic are usually the ones who end up with more deaths than kills.

Perfect example yesterday, I was in a deathmatch with a crew member, and 2 other people. The game lagged and it was 4v1 (me, crew member and 2 randoms on mic (who clearly knew eachother)) v 1 guy.

Obviously my team won, and we voted on another deathmatch, this time, it was the 2 guys on mic vs me and my crew member.

I could of beaten them single handedly, they ragequit with 2 minutes left when they realised they wasn't going to win, my crew member also lagged out about 5 minutes in to the deathmatch. 


I was in free-roam and I had another invite to a deathmatch by the guys that just ragequit, this time it was me + 3 randoms vs the guys on mic + 2 randoms. It was first to 40 kills, we was running away with it to be fair, I ended up 20 kills 9 deaths, post screen this is what they said ' that was the first deathmatch I've lost in ages' (don't forget they ragequit the previous deathmatch) followed by 'TheStalked went 20 and 9, who does that? you're a hacker'.

I use it, sometimes it's set to crew/friends only, other times it's set to everyone. Met some cool people through using it and had some laughs, also met some wankers. Overall it's best with crew only, but then you do miss out on the chance on meeting some cool people, that's why I mix it up.

I usually use my headset because it provides better sound for the cars and general gameplay. Only turn the mic on if in a mission and the people arent annoying, or playing with friends. I only hear friends and crew in freemode.

I have a headset with a mic.

I only use the mic when it's absolutely necessary like The Last of Us. Otherwise it's muted. I have a high voice for a dude in college and I don't like people hearing it.

I would like to know if the majority of people use a mic or not when they play online.

It seems like very few people play with a mic online, and that's annoying. I wish they had a setting so the game would only put me with players that have a mic.

People without mics are a real annoyance if you are doing a mission or something with them. It just guarantees that there will be little to no teamwork. If you don't play with a mic, start playing with one so we can actually cooperate and get things done.

Unfortunately mic users are all tarnished with the "sqeeker" brush. I know not all mic users are sqeekers but in all the time i had my mic connected thats all i ever heard. That and grown white men acting like children and calling me " ni**er" and "Paki" etc even though i'm clearly white and Scottish. I used to use my mic all the time but these are the reasons i stopped and will likely never hook it up again to this game.


For what its worth... If you cant coordinate and coopererate in missions without a mic then i think your doing them wrong. Only problems i ever have in missions with randoms is when they deliberately try and fail or try to grief in some other way. Having a mic wont stop them doing that. It also wont stop "rambos" from thinking this is COD and storming the objective just to be shredded in seconds. If that happens then just finish the mission solo and let them watch or leave. 


Every mission in this game can be done solo therefore every mission in this game can be done without a mic.

I don't even see any reason to leave mics enabled in the first place, Because 9 times out of 10, It's either a child talking/screaming or someone blasting annoying music

I have mine on but it's very rare that I encounter anyone with a mic, either that or I've not got the thing set up correctly.
