The last couple of weeks, I've started playing GTA again, since I had stopped playing because the game became just too boring for me to spend time on it. And well, everytime I try to join a mission, it's RR (old boring mission), so I say, well people keep grinding still.. ok, That situation given, I try to join a DM and oh surprise! everytime I try, it's one of the "10.000.000$ and 15.000.000 rp" lobbies. (always nearly full, of course) and when I find another TDM it's only 2 or  3 players.

 

This leads me to the following question, does anybody still play for the fun of doing it instead of grinding or believing on those idiotic TDM's? There are plenty of funny missions to do with 3 or 4 players.. there are TONS of TDM's to play..

 

I really don't get it.. if I'm gonna play a game it's because of the good entertainment that gives me for a couple hours.. who the f*ck finds grinding funny?

 

It's not even like you could buy anything cool with the money. Once you've gotten a Fast car, a 10 car garage, clothes and guns all you need is ammo every once in a while, maybe save for a next DLC, I don't know.

I play for fun, if it wasn't fun why the f*ck would I play it?

The poll options suck; you can't assume I only do one thing during the entire time of a session in GTA Online

I do races, play some missions and f*ck around in free roam, and I occasionally kill peasants who start sh*t with me, but I can only choose one option.

all of the above depending on the day I guess.  Well, except for killing peasants.  I don't really do that.

I just roam around now and get bored within 30 minutes. Even when friends are online. The game is just getting old, nothing wrong with that. I like to spend time playing other games. But when I play GTAO i'll just roam around in my car, kill random people and spend time out in the ocean.

Freeroam and Rooftop Rumble. I find both of those fun.

This.

I usually go to the Sheriff's office at the southern part of Paleto Bay after leaving my beautiful new home in a 9F, and get in the chopper there. I then go crate hunting as a crate always drops in every session I join :p
I also play with friends and go skydiving off of Mount Chiliad, then ride ATVs and play the Independence Day Event Playlist :)

Ah, rural America

I try to but I'm kind of forced to grind RR which is not fun. And there's the annoying children. And freezing and errors.

Personally, I just do whatever pops up in my missions feed. Unless it's a non-R* mission not created by my friends, in which case I won't join. Occasionaly I'll grind for a day or so to regain some cash if I'm near my limit, but I normally won't. When not on a mission though, I just do nonsense in freeroam like house hunt, buy more unnecessary clothes, or join my crew in their endeavors.

 

I'm still having fun though, as if I weren't, I wouldn't play the game.

I joined a crew. They have some pretty darn good racers and I race with them like there's no tomorrow.

I usually participate in free roam shenanigans, but racing is what cuts it for me, I love racing.

I've been having a blast with the new vehicles. Stunting with the Sovereign is a lot of fun. 

 

I'll do a mission or two every now and then, but it's basically grinding RR since that's the only one I can join  :panic:

 

So... Free roam and missions, but I can't pick both.

I play for fun.  Don't play with others that I don't know which means I mainly play solo, but yeah.  I have fun even then. 

 

I don't grind Rooftop or any mission, but keep in mind that some people may have a lot of fun doing that.  Some people only race.  Some only do freemode.

I cycle between grinding RR, messing around in freemode and killing peasants.

I'm mostly cruising now. Sometimes I may grind Rooftop Rumble, but I use it as an excuse to listen to the songs in my cell, since I played that mission so many times that it doesn't even require my focus anymore

This is litterally what I've been experiencing for the past two weeks. So instead of trying to find a TDM, I now look for people fighting in free roam and I join them.

There needs to be some incentive in this game, just look at the options. Its spilt between people either dicking around or grinding or racing.

I only play for fun. I never do missions anymore since theyre boring. My crew and I usually find random things to do in free mode. Sometimes we'll do some races, top fun and parachuting.

Same here, I do a little of everything. Doing one thing over and over would get boring.

i've recently gone back to playing gta online, i mostly do survival and some races and sometimes tdm's.

why i stopped playing gta online for a while was mostly because of the tank griefing. :panic:  :lol:

I dislike this poll. How come we can't do all of the above?

And also, you assume that it's IMPOSSIBLE to have fun grinding RR.
You CAN have fun grinding RR if you play with friends or good crew members.

To have a narrow point of view and suggest there's only certain ways to have fun is not a very wise thing to do...

Also: those people you see in the 100,000 RP TDMs are either con artists, of fools that haven't caught on to the scam yet from what I can see.

"Stay in free-roam" is winning (no surprise)... and I'm sure these are the same people who constantly complain "There's no way to make money in this game!!"

 

I mostly play missions... except for RR and Coveted, which I refuse to do anymore :rol: (I'd rather play one of Simeon's crappy, low-paying missions than RR).  I'll also spend some time in free-roam, and the parachuting jobs are actually some of my favorite things.  1 or 2 of those is a nice relaxing way to un-wind after spending a while shooting at stuff (and I'm good at them and usually win, so that's a quick $3-6k :cool: ).

 

I won't play DMs (partly cuz of the $10000000, 100000RP bull), and I'd like to do more racing but I hate that most of them turn into who's-the-best-at-ramming-everyone-else-off-the-road?... and like I predicted, finding one where the host has picked non-contact is about as rare as finding one where catch-up is turned off...

Well considering how everyone but me IS a peasant there really isn't much of a choice when it comes to killing people.
