Everything you can buy you can get in SP.

 

No one cares about anything that you do or have.

 

The map is really just sugar coated pixels.

 

There is no Utopia lobby just waiting for you.

 

Any satisfaction gained from a long term goal only lasts a few seconds.

 

Every part of the game has been done 10x better in another game.

 

Most people just stare at the radar and fly at each other over and over until something happens.

 

No one cares about Heists anymore because everyone is loaded.

 

No one really cares about your created content.

 

There really is no reason to do anything

 

 

You can dress up a pig, put makeup on it, glue some wings on it and shove a rocket up its ass, but it still won't fly.

In all seriousness I used to play with the map off and it was the most fun I had playing the game. Im doing it again on my second character once R* takes my money away. You find yourself more committed to whatever it is you are doing, and you can generally just do whatever you want. 

It does get to a point where you find yourself checking the map and over and over for some missions though.

Because I f*cking love GTA, always have and always will. Pretty sure that is literally the only reason I've played this game for so long.

But this is nothing like GTA. Its like a twisted distorted reanimated corpse of GTA that is fueled by money and visions of delusion.

It's still GTA. I can still pick up a hooker and beat her to death with a bat. I can still steal expensive cars and reduce them to a smoldering wreck. I can still try to outrun a SWAT team in a crappy stationwagon. I can still acquire ridiculously powerful military weaponry and use it on fat pedestrians. Only difference is I do it in the company of a bunch of fellow nut-jobs.

 

It's only about money if you make it about money, yeah it's nice having a fancy car in your garage with a bright pink paint job but this has been a feature of what? 3 GTAs so far? It wasn't featured in the first GTA through to Vice City and they were still great games.

Because I like killing players more than NPCs. Not like a jerk though. I like knowing that I have someone real to play with or against... yes... that is a better way of saying it.

Because why the hell not. All games have flaws, really. Tell me the name of your favorite game, and anyone can point out a flaw you overlook because the game is fun for you.

Me, I play Uncharted 3. Been playing it for 2 years and I hop on once in a while. I can tell you tons of flaws with the game, but I still play it because I find it fun.

EDIT: I know you like GTA, bud, so instead I'll point out everything wrong from my perspective:

- can't start a new story anymore in SP
- join quick mission also leads to LTS, DMs, etc.
- passive mode is pretty much disarming yourself because you sure as hell can still get killed
- people will shoot you, even if you literally just hand-held them through the game, or they've been your best friend since kindergarten
- so much glitches it makes Uncharted 2 look clean
- godmode superduper killers of doom
- everyone just races supers
- 1/50 do impromptu races
- superscrewed if newbie
- economy is shot like crazy

co-op with mates, nuff said. seriously GTAO is fun as hell, love every minute of it. except when I get close to throwing my controller at the TV trying to solo Judging the Jury, and the timer is at 10 seconds and while trying to lock on to the juror with my Buzzard, just keeps locking onto cops instead while the cop chopper is shooting my arse down.

I'd say the question is Why are you still playing it, and if your not then why does it bother you so much that other people are still playing and enjoying it..

Yes aspects of this game have been done before (what game is totally original now days??) But it's still sod off fun, even more so with mates. And the most important thing is it's GTA baby !!!! ;)

People always have something to prove, to themselves, and to the eyes of others. Also, I think the social aspect matters a lot also. Playing games for socialism is becoming more prevalent lol. It's not the 'loner in the basement' kind of thing anymore.

I've played every GTA made. To me I play because its an amazing all around game. Race, free roam, missions, story lines,ect. give GTA a big thumbs from me. It has so much to offer n keep u busy. Sure the online is a mess right now but its still a great game.

I like games that keep me busy and have plenty of goals to be set. I'm honestly waiting for heists, even though money is a joke at the moment, so I can join my friends in some planning and enjoy doing technical things that we will plan.
