They hyped the creator too much. Games have been doing custom deathmatches and races for ages. Not to mention Capture is nothing new whatsoever. They should have come out with mission creator from the getgo along with heists. Its kinda like they don't have any good ideas. For such a big over successful game. Its become one of the most disappointing games to date. The pace of which they release content and how much is relaesed is downright laughable. With us going gaga over 5 months of play time and only 3 CARS releasing. The moment you reach Rank 120, you think.. Okay, now what. I am Rank 211 and I have no incentive to play whatsoever anymore. They should have had a function for every aesthetic in the game. We wear suits? Okay give us a cool missions to use with that suit with our friends! There is so much potential yet they will lose their core base by year's end if nothing big is released.
Because we are all basically Kingpin God's of War, we want to be able to act as such. And just the fact that the only way to call goons on someone is Mercenaries which is old, expensive, and not much use. It would have been cool to pay gangs to cause havok and just watch, but that didn't happen, it would have been great to plan parties in which players and NPC's could attend and then have a bloody massacre occur but that didn't happen, Hell it would have been awesome to be able to plan things in games that random NPCs would join if other players didn't. In my opinion, if a player set up a meet point of racers with random NPC vehicles to race and see what cool combinations they had, it would have gave more players incentive to join but that didn't happen. More interaction with the world would have made plenty of sense but instead its like we are just avatar's running around and shooting crap with so many "holes" to fall into the map its borderline a broken experience.. I have played I have paid, and I am spent.
P.S. I understand that playing with friends is huge and a large percentage of the fun to be had. But honestly for the amount of potential they pumped in their trailers and such. Its a waste. If that were the case, I would play GTA4. My point is playing with friends only goes so far and if we are relying solely on our friends to have fun then something is wrong with this game.
