it seems like with the nerf the the mission payouts generally only affecting legit players who haven't been at it from day one... rockstar is really pushing the game in the direction of cash cards leaving, punishing those who have played the game legit from day one. nerfing payouts is definitely doing nothing to help them.
but then again, if they want money, why not give players a reason to want to spend it? I would have paid rockstar for the bifta. it's a sweet ride. if they ever made a classic 427 cobra, i'd pay em 10 bucks for without question.
why not let me pay real money for different apartment layouts and furniture; unique clothing and tattoos, cars that are only more badass in style (no reason to give any more advantage than lookin badass to paying players, really); unique accessories for avatars and vehicles (imagine smoke that changed color the further away it got. like green to blue)... ...pretty much any idea other than what they're doing now.
I didn't mind the grind. i'm used to it after almost 30 years of gaming, but I can understand people wishing that there was at least enough content they didn't have to, and by almost forcing those players to buy cash cards, you're changing your game from something fun to something you either have to pay to have fun in, or you have to grind your ass off to compete.
any thoughts? what would you pay them real money for in game?
