I think Rockstar will go downhill now like EA, Activision and so on did.
I used to love the company but since GTA Online and the Cashcard systems I kinda hate them, I hope they get back to being badass soon.....
Why do you hate them for the cash cards that are totally optional and you're in no way obliged to buy?
Stupid attitude. You're hating something that you don't have any reason to hate. If you couldn't play online without them, I'd understand, but it seems like you're just hating it because you think you should.
I hate cashcards because they designed GTA Online in a way that you can only succeed if you play 12 hours a day, cheat or spend your hard earned REAL LIFE MONEY into digital money.
They are copying the same stupid "pay to win" methods that many other companies are applying right now.
An average person plays for 1 hour or 2 a day, not 12. What if I don't want to spend more money in the game because I don't have any and I already spent 60€ in the goddam game, still more money for them? No sir.
Plus I've got a life and things to do, so I can't play those 12 hours a day to grind money and EXP to keep up.
So my only choice is getting online and playing solo or joining and public lobby and getting raped in races because I don't have any custom super car or getting raped in gunfights because I don't have a rocket launcher, a tank or a heavy sniper.
Where's the fairness there? Winning at games was supposed to be about having skills, not about having IRL money to spend into IG money so you are better than anyone else. It neither was supposed to be about who plays the more time.
That's the problem with nowadays games. I remember back in the day when Ps3 got released and there were titles like COD MW2 or Tekken 6 were you would only win if you are good at the game, and even if you had all the weapons and all the unlocks, a newly joined user could beat you up seriously because they are simply better.
Do you understand now why I am against this bussiness model Rockstar is applying?
