GTA Online moreso than the single player GTAs that have come before it gives us a full bodied world with which to fulfill our own animalistic, criminalistic ambitions. It's as some people have said "it's not a coloring book". But in a strange, ironic way...it actually IS a coloring book, in a sense that it gives us players a blank slate of a character so to speak with which to color our own virtual identity within the world.

Of course, with it being a GTA game, the one ever present constant is violence. Everything is gained by general unruly behavior and low regard for "virtual" life. But there are levels to this. I've found that some more mature players (such as myself) don't do certain things in the game that we might have done way back in GTA1, like blatantly and endlessly killing NPCs, attacking police and generally doing as much damage and/or causing as much chaos as possible...which is something that a lot of younger players do-namely the squeakers. Now, in me saying this I realize there are exceptions and do actually exist young players who are mature and older players who aren't, but age isn't the issue here. The question, as posed in the topic, is exactly how violent do you get when playing GTAO? Do you treat Los Santos like it's an actual place and go about your game with some resolve or is it totally in your style to just kill everything and let the video game gods sort out the bodies?

Other players: Not at all unless they start being an ass


NPCs: I'll shoot them in the face for taking a picture of my car.

I used to be very violent killing anything that moved got worse when I got a tank i got bored of it though so I joined a crew ditched the tank and now only kill when killed. Killing NPCs is too annoying with the cops.

Sometimes I do enjoy an occasional rampage killing everything in sight, both NPC and player alike. Other than that i'm on some live and let live sh*t most of the time.

If I don't know you and you come anywhere near me acting suspicious.... you're dead. Other than that I just try to go about my business and if it's a high priority vehicle, bounty, crate, armoured truck etc. then I take out the competition. I never go out of my way to kill someone unless I feel they're stalking me.

Did Beat_Savy post with your account?


If you kill me, you die, die, and die again until I get bored of killing you or you leave the session.  End of story.

Live and let live is what i say, but of course there are times when live and let die is my back up saying.


Just depends on whats going on. Grief me and i become a beast, using eveything my lvl 100 chick and get her hands on.

Be chill and i'm chill too. I've played with tons of people and i find that lately alot more are level headed players looking to have fun.


Although you still find that special kind of douch evey once in a while.

I don't go after anyone unless they come after me, I don't enjoy random kills or taking advantage of low levels. If I feel like getting into it I just look for the war zone and go to those that want to fight.

I think I am the least violent dude in gtao. My KD will prove it lol. But I always walk around with my special crabine ready for battle, all my ammo is always maxed out. If you kill me I might let it slide I might not depends in my mood and if im busy.

Remember a coupla days ago I was in passive rolling a dube (never tried private before whats the point), two guys were trying to kill me on a bike. Realising they couldn't they then ran me over killing me. Got out of passive and then proceeded to kill them both... and succeeded, and again, (then got killed by a goddamn cop), and once more for good measure.... Realising they were going nowhere they both hopped on that bike and they whent off on their merry way.... and i told myself ''yep, ya can still bring it''

pretty much like most of the people have posted. i tend to keep to myself unless provoked and then i might fight, run away or passive troll. it just depends on how the situation plays out. i do give people atleast 3 chances though before i do anything and yes i have died a lot.   :lol:

Usually in free mode I'll be the passive one who'll defend myself if needs be. I try not to start trouble though, unless someone starts on a mate and I'm nearby.

On a scale from 1 to 10 im pretty much a 9. Im on a mission in free roam as im trying to get as many medals as i can whether it be for the guns, tattoos, armored trucks, or other players and its nothing personal if you happen to be in my radius i either kill or be killed and im expecting the same from 90% of the other players as im almost always attacked first in any lobby im in.

I'm not violent at all. I'm a safe driver, watch my budget, give a player the odd humbug stuck down in the seat.

I'll kill if somebody else shoots at me, but there are days where I slowly go to the dark side.


I'm beginning to feel like I should destroy every living being with the Lazer just because I can.You never see Lazer murderers in lobbies.

Not at all violent. GTA is about the driving to me. I have around 30 player kills.

That's pretty passive. Haha.

I've been playing since October 10th and I've racked up 1,973 kills. I always thought I didn't have that many kills...

To be honest, 30 kills is not surprising to me actually. I see from your sig and your other thread that you like offroading up in Blaine County. That means you're pretty much safe from any actual threat of engaging other players in combat whatsoever.

You're even safer in the water. Most people have forgotten it's even there, lol.

Sometimes I kill everyone I come across, sometimes I don't kill anyone the whole session. It's free roam so I'm free to do as I please, if you don't like getting killed then too bad. Respawn in passive.
