I hope this thread doesnt get locked.but OP when you say "People" there about 30ml people playing GTA 5 on PS3/Xbox360 and the Problems/issues are only like half the fraction,my copy of GTA 5 is great and i havent encounted any problems with GTA 5 except minor problems like the Failed save and that was once.unless if you want to count glitches and bugs(in which i havent encountered in singleplayer) yeah there are glitches in GTA 5 but not that much unlike GTA Online.Everything else about the Game is beautiful,from Graphics,Visuals,Draw Distance etc. i play on 360 btw.
Perhaps I was under the impression that the problems were more prevalent than they actually are, but looking at the Troubleshooting section, and browsing other forums, has definitely shown that these issues are applying to a good amount of people. Which is a shame, since you're right that the game's beautiful. I suppose it's difficult for me to sympathize with the idea of working around these problems for now since, I haven't cared about Online all that much lately.
Here's the thing with wrong perception of there being too many problems. Everyone will make a topic when they experience a problem, but no one will make a topic to say ''Hey I just completed the game and had no problems''. So all you get to see is the negative side.
It's similar to the overall quality of the game. If I took these forums seriously, not knowing anything about the game, I'd probably eng up thinking it's pure sh*t, map is smaller then Vice City, and all activities were replaced by yoga and overall no one likes the game. Go on youtube, watch and respectable gaming channel and people enjoy the game speaking ow it's one of the best experiences lately. So again, on the forums we only get to see the negative side of things.
