It would be alot better if we had the option to turn off police.

 

They put Robo Cop to shame.....

Even if it limited activity's as a result.

there are things that piss me off but not to a point of finding the game absurd...

connection issues should have been an option.

we should have a cop free option.

impound lot can stay but it should be tweaked so they dont impound your car as soon as you get killed. you should have some 24 ingame hours to go back into your car before it get impounded.

prices of EVERYTHING should get a 50% cut. everything is way too overpriced, things should be 2-3 times the price of sp not 10-15 times the price as we have now. 10k for a mask that cost 500 in sp? really?!

the hate toward the police is not because of the chases and roadblocks...

try having a battle on the streets, police ruin the action.

the other day when to a invite only session for a 1 on 1 battle... first to get 20 kills win. took little over an hour and a half to finish thanks to the police...

There is an in-game economy of sorts.  You earn money and then spend that on ammo, apartment, cars, snacks, bounties etc. don't you?  If you run out of cash, you either buy a cash card or do a few missions.  In effect, there is an economy of sorts within the game.

Why is there not an option for whiny bitches who complain about everything even though its super easy to make money in this game?

 

Super easy to make money? Only if you were gifted money or glitched or something, I've spent 10 days in game filling up my garage and modding everything 100%, now saving up for a tank and buzzard which is also going to take very long. It's easy to make money in this game, it just takes a very, very long time if you want to buy some of the more expensive stuff.

Which is EXACTLY the way it was intended to be. How long would it take you (never ever ever) to save up for that stuff IRL? You wouldn't.

True, it wasn't supposed to be easy, and it's not. You said it's super easy, that's the only thing I'm disagreeing with. It takes VERY long to buy the more expensive stuff. And if this was real life, I wouldn't even have had the 25k garage by now.

All you pussies need to quit bitching about the the f*ckin game. If you're getting bored just don't f*ckin play it. There's no need to jump on the forum and post the same f*ckin thread that's been posted a million timestimes just so you fa**ots can whine and have a giant suck fest.

Here is where the game began... maybe you forgot?

 

Or maybe you just lost interest since you have no interest in actually playing the "game"..

 

just spending money you got for nothing.

Gameplay

Grand Theft Auto is made up of a series of levels, each set in one of the three main cities. In each level, the player's ultimate objective is to reach a target number of points, which is typically achieved by performing tasks for the city's local crime syndicate. Each level has its own unique set of tasks. Successful completion of a mission rewards the player with points and opens the opportunity to attempt harder missions for higher rewards, while failure awards few points and may permanently seal off opportunities for more tasks. Completing missions also increases the player's "multiplier", which increases the points the player gets for doing other tasks.

If the player is arrested then their multiplier is halved. Unlike in later games in the series, the player can be wasted in one hit without body armor. If the player is wasted then he loses a life. In both cases the player loses their current equipment. If the player is wasted too many times he loses and must restart the level from scratch.

 

Freedom

The player is free to do whatever he or she wants. The player can gain points by causing death and destruction amid the traffic in the city, or steal and sell cars for profit. To get to the large target money required to complete a level, players will usually opt to complete at least some missions to build up their multiplier. Some criminal acts have an inherent multiplier; for example, using a police car for running over people doubles the number of points received.

Even during missions there is still some freedom as most of the time the player is free to choose the route to take, but the destination is usually fixed. It is this level of freedom which set Grand Theft Auto apart from other action based computer games at the time.[8] The PC releases of the game allowed networked multiplayer gameplay using the IPX protocol.[9] Some places in the game have to be unlocked by completing missions.

~ TRUNCATED FOR EASY READING ~

 

Naw, I didn't forget the original games - I loved them! But in discussing the franchise, it really starts, for me, with GTA3 and the 3D universe - that's when it became truly relevant.

Regardless, the description you're provided does not address the newest addition: a free roaming lobby where players meet and interact before and after engaging the missions you wrote about. This addition implements the newest GTA concept, a highly volatile AI system, likened only to the horde of Agent Smiths from The Matrix Revolutions movie, which seems to know a players every move before the player does. It also incorporates a mandatory financial reward system and economy, that if played correctly, becomes exhausted just by doing menial and routine tasks, like repairing your vehicle, respawing (medical bills), impound fees, ammunition, mechanic and apartment fees, etc. which all add up to the amounted payouts of missions and races, etc. 

So, basically, if you play the game according to the description you provided, you can eventually unlock certain features and benefits that come locked in the vanilla game; however, if you play the game as intended, you'll never be able to unlock certain features of the game because the economic structure set forth by the developer makes it extremely difficult - near to impossible - to accrue such amounts of money. 

Again, that's why the "Santa's" who gave out billions actually did the community a huge favor, by allowing players access to the things we'd never be able to have afforded by simply playing the game.

And that to me, both with the set rules of gameplay for this iteration of GTA, as well as the gifted billions to get around those rules, is absurd.

Cheers. ;)

For someone who writes, in a single post, "you pvssies," "quit b!tching," "the fing game," "don't fing play," "same fing thread," "timestimes," "f&ggots," and "svck fest," it's clear you need to take a break from the forum. 

Perhaps you should go play GTA and keep your hostile and rather useless opinion in your toolbag? Thanks a bunch! ~ The entire forum community

Everything about "the economy" (there isn't one) is absurd. Drive the sh*t out of a car, limp into LSC seconds from exploding...merely $500 and you're good as new. But you;ll spend a small fortune to paint that same car.

I wasn't able to get to GTAO until 2 weeks after launch due to the server issue.

You are full of sh*t. Why? Because at level 20 something I already had 500k. AFTER they nerfed payout etc.

I did 3 bloody missions yesterday -im only rank 58- and got around 50k + 2 Galavanters sold. All in less than 2 hours. I spent half that time f*cking around in free roam.

All the gifters did was remove one month worth of playing and immediately replaced it with $ instead of time spent.

If you aren't wiling to put in work, you are going to while like a bitch about money . Similar to Welfare recipients capable of working but refuse to do so, yet bitch about being broke.

You get what you put in. Just like IRL.

Not even ten minutes ago, I signed in to Online, spawned inside my apartment and went upstairs. When I got there I found two players walking around. But they acted like I was invisible.

I smoked the pixel marijuanas and proceeded to the window where I saw a tank go zipping by my window. Almost like it was flying... but more like falling at a mostly horizontal angle.

Last time I played, I watched the TV in the apartment and saw a kid run over a bush in the desert that launched his tank as high as the game allows. No idea where he was because the TV doesn't show the mini map.

I saw screw GTA Online. I'm going back to GTA4. At least the glitchers and hackers there can be fun, building ramps and Hot Wheels style race tracks.

I have gone back to my old ways of doing missions and not wasting ammo etc. I miss using merryweather as much as I did.

The problem with the game now is, even if I still have over 500000 in the bank, I'm not f*cking going to touch it, ever.

What I have in my inventory and in my garage is what I will keep. I found my 1st sentinel xs online today and made a tough decision to replace my vergo with it.
Missing my vergo already. I used to pretend to be a hunter in that car. (Yes I'm a supernatural fan lol)

Worst thing is, I have to decide to spend money upgrading the damn thing now.


I hope hackers figure out how to create a mission where all you have to do is drive to the checkpoint and receive 500000 for playing the mission or something.

I wasn't keen on the grafting my arse off before the gifted cash and I'm still not. Just let me have fun and not worry about cash. I do f*cking enough of that in the real world.

You don't need hacked money.

 

R* left me with $550,000.  I now have just over $1.8 million.  I don't need hackers and their illicit cash seeing as I've bought all the daft stuff before teh clear-out.  All that's left for me to buy is the mini-gun and I can pick that up in a survival and keep it once I've unlocked it.

 

I know working for your cash is a bit leftfield but that's the way it is.  If you don't like it, play something else.

Lol you know you could just 1vs1 in a deathmatch with no police. I've had many battles in the streets and the cops certainly don't ruin it for me.

the hate toward the police is not because of the chases and roadblocks...

try having a battle on the streets, police ruin the action.

 
 
Deathmatch. Use it. Hell, you´ll get paid for it.

DM mode would never top a good ol' street battle, DM are boring and youre limited to a certain location, while on the streets you have freerom of movement.
