NOTE:  THIS IS NOT ABOUT GIRLFRIENDS!  READ THE POST IN FULL SO YOU WONT MAKE A IGNORANT REMARK IN AN ATTEMPT TO DIS OR SOUND FUNNY.

 

I'd like to see R* add the ability to befriend NPCs online.  What I mean is like single player you can have NPC characters (friends/girlfriends) and even call them up for jobs,  benefits or just to hang out.  R* could even make it so we can call our crew member's characters up to come hang wit us but for now lets just speak on regular charactes.  Here is what I mean.

 

 

 

Friends

 

Jobs - These jobs should be done in free roam like Simeon's.  You know the import that pops up on the screen and anyone can go get it and bring it to him  Gerald's missions for example could be done in free roam like that.  Some of Martin's as well for example the "Out of Court" mission.

 

Hangout - Same as in single player.  They simply just ride with you and go along with whatever you're doing like help you on random free roam missions,  back you up vs other players and maybe even speak some dialog.  If you choose to take them to eat,  play tennis,  etc. then so be it but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO!  Like single player,  hanging out with them unlocks their benefits which I explain below.  

 

Benefits - To unlock their benefits you have to get the characters like meter up by hanging out with them just like in single player.  Again,  you do not have to do any mingames.  Just having along and doing stuff like shootouts will raise their like.  Strip clubs,  tennis,  eating,  erc will raise it faster tho.  Benefits will be things like weapons being brought to your location like Lil Jacob in IV,  back up like Dwayne sent you,  etc.  As for weapons I think it would be cool if you could only buy the smaller weapons at the ammunition and to get the big stuff like sticky bombs,  sniper rifles,  grenade launchers,  etc you have to set up a meeting with the contacts like in single player.

 

Another benefit could be discounts at LSC.  This could be Simeon's benefit after doing enough work for him or maybe have the LSC guy give missions.

 

Girlfriends

 

Jobs - Again,  these jobs should be done in free roam like Simeon's.  They would be things like timed escort missions where you have to get her to a photoshoot in a certain amount of time or kill her stalker like Michael does for his daughter in single player.  Maybe they get kidnapped and you have to go save them.  lol  I'm sure R* could come up with a bunch of stuff.

 

Hangout - Same as described above.  The only difference here is some of the girlfriends wont back you up in a gun fight.   We should also be able to take them to our crib too and get a health boost from ya know.   :whistle:  Anyway,  it could be fun having to protect her from the trolls in free roam trying to kill her or even from the other side trying to kill someone else's girlfriend.  Ppl chase around female players in freemode so I'm sure they would want o kill your virtual girlfriend.  lol

 

Benefits - Like in IV Carmen (SoBoHoe) had the health boost when calling her.  Maybe in V a girlfriend could do that too but also when she's riding with you you can pull over in an alley and get a boost. :pp Hey its quicker than having to find a prostitute and cheaper.  lol  Anyway,  you also had Kiki (Lawchick) who could remove your wanted level.  We have Lester for this now but maybe R* could make the Lawchick remove only 1-2 stars for free and Lester 3-4 stars for a cost.  Lastly you had Alex (LiberatedWoman) who would give you a 50% discount at clothing stores.  Another benefit is maybe they'll have a drug dealer brother so they could give you the inside scoop on a deal going on (side mission) or they could get you a hook price on drugs if my drug dealing system was implemented of course (read that here).  Of course to gain these benefits you would have to get their like meter up by hanging out but once again YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DATE THEM,  GO EAT,  ETC.  Them just riding around would raise the meter BUT doing activities with them will raise the meter faster.

 

 

 

I think allowing us to interact with NPC's in this manor would inhance online play.  It'll not only add more to free roam and be helpful when your friends aren't online wether its having a little backup when multiple players are trying to gang up on you or if you want to do missions solo bcuz sometimes ppl dont know wtf they're doing or sabatoge the mission on purpose.  Thoughts?

Tricks give money to hoes.  Pimps get money from hoes.  i'd much rather have a girlfriend that I can get stuff from like benefits or jobs so I can make some money.  Peep game lame.

if you're a guy and are getting sex, you are paying for it one way or the other... either in cash up front - or dinner/movie/gas, attention presents, and so on - plus you pay for it by having to listen to her bitch about every little thing in life... I quit dealing with chicks in my real life a long time ago, don't need to be adding them into my pretend one.

Exactly what I want and I'd really like to see these features implemented Online. R* should definitely bring back relationships but I have nothing else to add because you nailed it.

 

Another benefit was back up.  In IV you could call Dwayne to send you those 2 guys to do mission with.  We should be able to do this online in V too.  Maybe Lamar can send you 2 guys to roll with (this would be the option if someone else in the session is already rolling wit Lamar).

 

 

^ This feature would be so much fun. The goons really made things easier in IV and it would be nice to have back up online in free roam and missions.

 

Jobs - These can be humerous jobs like take her shopping,  timed escort missions where you have to get here to say a photoshoot in a certain amount of time,  etc.  Maybe even stuff like in single player when Micheal took his daughter to go kill the stalker or when he had to save her from the Fame or Shame audition.  They can even have serious mission like having a drug dealer as a brother so they have the inside scoop on a deal going on.  Maybe they get kidnapped and you have to go save them.  I'm sure R* could come up with a bunch of stuff.

 

 

Hangout - Same as described above.  The only difference here is some of the girlfriends wont back you up in a gun fight.  To make up for it their benefit should be huge.  We should also be able to take them to our crib too and get a health boost from ya know.   :whistle:  Anyway,  again to keep from having multiple say SoBoHoes running around like I said above they should just say "I'm sleeping" or "I'm busy right now" like in IV.   It would be cool to even see them answer their phone when with you and telling ppl this.

 

^ Yeah I agree, being able to do things with your spouse would really increase the playability factor which opens up opportunities for new missions and fresh gameplay. 

----
I really felt like I was reading a preview of future upcoming DLC which is a shame because the chances of this making it into online are slim at best. If you haven't already submit it to directly to R* so hopefully they can see it.

Really, you guys want girlfriends and relationships? Obviously you don't have one in real life. Video games is the escape from the nagging and stress that relationships cause. Bad enough getting nagged in real life, now you want to have a virtal GF constantly calling you asking where you are in GTA? Isn't Simeon/Dom/Gerald doing enough for you all?

Now why, oh, WHY would you want a girlfriend in a virtual world where you ALWAYS have enough money to pay for the most expensive service from a hooker?

 

GTA is about illegal activities, violence and mature content like sex (you'll not find extreme violence in Online if there almost none of it in SP).

 

If you want that kind of stuff, I'd get a girlfriend in real life as it is much more satisfying.

 

Your idea just..doesn't fit in my perspective of GTA. I'd would be acceptable in SP though, still it would feel pointless unless I get 50.000$ each time I save her and there are long scenes of UNCENSORED sex with the NPC. 

 

BUT OF COURSE..Rockstar wouldn't want an army of angry mothers suing them because they caugth their son watching porn in a videogame that THEY themselves have bought.

 

...

 

Also this;

GTFO wit this crap!  Nobody wants girlfriends to have virtual sex fools.  How about reading the damn post in full before spewing this lame crap.  You totally ingored the "male friends" part as well as the "benefits" part just to gripe about GF's.  GTFO clowns.

ARE YOU OUT OF YOU MIND?

 

What's the reward? Virtual satistaction? A virtual blowjob so you can realise how empty and boring your real life is?

 

Friends? CONVERSATIONS? Even knowing that your character doesn't speak in the game world?

As I said, it makes no sense.

GF idea is better for SP, but it would be with perks you could get for having there "satisfaction" level up or something like that. That online would be a little better.

I'm not crazy about the friends thing since it is GTA:O so we kinda have thousands of "friends" to play with, but yeah sometimes finding decent people is a pain.

I would like to see maybe NPC partners for heist or other jobs similar to how they did and barely used it in SP. This might work better for taking people on missions. You could also level up, and outfit your crew member.

You get it.

 

Yeah, no, I don't want GTA:O to turn into a glorified Tomagachi.

 

I'm all for adding new content, but I'm not trying to play Clingy Friends Simulator: Part Deux.

This was one of the worst parts of IV IMHO. These "releationships" we fun like one time, then everytime I wanted them to shut the hell up so I could do what i wanted. 

 

DO NOT WANT!

Tricks give money to hoes.  Pimps get money from hoes.  i'd much rather have a girlfriend that I can get stuff from like benefits or jobs so I can make some money.  Peep game lame.

Why don't you just kill them and get your money back? You're a trick for giving the money, then you're a pimp for getting it back. Even things out.

I wish they had in SP a mode like San Andreas where taking your girl unlocks the 2nd controller in a free roam coop... My girl and I still go back to San andreas so we can play GTA together in the same room on the same system.

Dude you're the one who is out of his mind unless of course trolling is your mindset.  Either way the only thing you and most others in here seem to notice is virtual sex and dating.  Why are you so focused on that small part of the overall idea?  Its not even suggested as a mandatory thing yet you're whining about it?  Actually none of this is.  Its simply something to do IF YOU CHOOSE so again your gripe is irrelevant and pointless. 

 

I admit the shopping part as a job isn't good after thinking about it so it was taken out but the overall idea is and its something that should be online IMO.  Every session I jumped in last night had about 1-5 ppl in it.  A character friends/girlfriend would've helped liven things up.  Hell since you're a troll wouldnt you have fun killing the friends and girlfriends of ppl online,  ruining their dates,  etc?  Seems like you're so hellbent on dissing the idea that you cant see the fun that could come from it.

I almost went on a rant calling everyone nerds and basement shut-ins, until I read the part about ruining dates. My favourite part of griefing is the 2 second window of audio right after and hearing the person on the other end freak out.  I can only imagine how much more awesome that would be if 'girlfriends' were part of the equation.

The game is definitely missing in the NPC category, making us depend on "ACTUAL" human beings to take the place of fleshed out NPC's is a mistake.  Real life people are boring as all hell.

I was just thinking about this too. Figured I'd necro a thread instead of making a new one :p

 

Still, it'd be nice to have someone to take on dates and sh*t, like in GTA IV. Can you imagine how funny it would be to hear some kid bitching over the mic because you killed his girlfriend... lmfao.

Some awesome ideas; I have however one point to say:

What if you could only carry up to 3 or 5 weapons; that you have to call packie; and you can switch weapons instead of going to ammunation or your home.

This way no player would be overpowered and they have to think forward which weapons they want to use.

I would really like to date npcs. I think it would be really cool if multiple players could date the same chick and it becomes like a competition.
