Serves absolutely no purpose in both single player and online. I remember there was a lot of talk about it in the few months build up to the game, about the possibilites about maybe being sent to prison or possibly 'prison break' type mission series. But no, absolutely no missions take place in - or even near - the prison, and there is no other reason to go in there either, can't enter any of the buildings and there's basically nothing in there, just a wanted level.

 

A lot of people also thought that it would be kept for online play, along with dozens more shops and building that we would be able to enter (lol yeah right). Rockstar really missed an opportunity in my opinion.

 

Are there any other places on the map which you think were also vastly underused in both missions and also general gameplay potential?

Well, I got news for you, OP! And it's GREAT NEWS!

 

The PRISON LIFE DLC!

 

I've found in the game source codes this line:

At least we get to race around the prison and earn a lot of rp.

The Casino, The Vinewood Bowl pops into my head. But hey, it could maybe be used in DLC in the future? Who knows...

I think the prison definitely stands out more than anything else so there's no comparisons imo.

 

^ Forgot the casino, still think that the prison is far more of a white elephant right now though.

Casino will open. Horse track will open. Vinewood Bowl will be used to host special live "concerts" from some band that's popular. Prison will have some awesome mission created for it (or a deathmatch/capture the flag with content creator). 

 

Just be patient. f*ck.

Should have been used as bad sports players spawn location.

There are a lot of useless places in the game.. it's almost like they planned out the map first, optimistic about how they could use all the places like the horse track, prison, and casino.. but then later on realized that it would be too much to either fit on the disc or for the consoles to handle.

Or they're just really bad with ideas and don't want to make a holy grail of a game, because obviously all of us have great ideas for what could have been done and we aren't the ones that are paid to be on a creative team.

The prison serves as one of the most classic race circuits in GTAO. Very useful, imo.

things might seem pointless for now but who knows what's in store later? I have to agree, let's see what happens in a year's time. if everything came at once we'd have nothing left to do after 2 weeks.

It's where "Bad Sports" should be placed for a brief period of time with only a knife and fists as weapons & no possible way to escape.. Let those who blow cars up continually fight amongst themselves within the confines of the prison gates.

I've heard some news about a new race around the Prison, that you'll be able to level up after each lap!

 

but only after the 1.06 patch and the prison life DLC :/

Pretty much the entire top half of the map is a waste, at least for me. 

 

There really is no incentive to travel up there, everything one needs is in the city.

 

Besides the odd trip to Chilliad, I almost never go north.

God you guys complain ALOT! Personally I am quite pleased that Rockstar have provided us with such a FULL world to roam and play in. Even if all these things don't open, the fact that they have been designed, crafted in detail and just placed on the map is awesome to me. It adds to the illusion of a real world. If they were to remove every aspect of the game that isn't functional, it sure would be alot more boring to roam around and play in.

 

I am constantly finding cool stuff they have created and it's all done in such high detail, it's amazing. I found what looked like a college campus yesterday, with sports and recreation centres attached. I have fun just walking around and checking stuff out.

They're young, dumb, and full of radoiactive, unable to swim ---.

 

They're just morons.

 

 

Here's what I do:

 

 

Click on your username up in the right hand corner, then click ignore prefs, and add the usernames of anybody supporting glitching or hacking or modding and going off complaining about small features of the game.

 

Once you have filtered out all of the impotent rage trolls who lack the ability to reason and are generally worthless individuals, you can focus on reading the posts of people with sense.

I like the idea of prison being a place for bad sports. But it sounds like too much work for R*. Besides, unless they come up with crap to do in that prison, like escaping, I see people not wanting to play this game if they are sent there.

one of the big reasons the game isn't more expansive is..Microsoft. Xbox users would be choosing from a pile of discs trying to play if it included everything talked about here..plus, Microsoft are the masters of DLC and know that their Live system is more effectively set up than PSN, therefore they are quite happy for the extras to be released after the game. Had it have been PS3 exclusive, I think there would have been a much more in-depth world

No it isn't, great for escaping bounties and hanging out with the merpeople. If only I had scuba gear to enjoy myself more.
