Its no doubt that Rockstar are one of the most respected game developers, pushing the boundaries of open world development and make some engaging, quality games. But since GTA Online's release, theres been nothing but unfulfilled promises, some odd decisions and technical issues, some of which have been around since the beginning and STILL not been resolved almost a year down the line.
Don't get me wrong, I still play GTA Online with my crew mates almost everyday because its a great playground but in terms for actual game content for it, they've gone for quantity over quality. Most of the races and missions aren't particularly special and these days the majority of people do them purely for the money aspect.
I always used to frown down on money glitchers, I earn't my money legitimately by doing jobs and playlists and hated the way that everyone had 10 supercars fully modded when I only had a few street cars fully modded even though I spent more time earning but a few months ago I had had enough. I had played Rooftop Rumble for the billionth time and it just wasn't fun, but tiresome. Its a game, not a full time job. Money glitching bypasses the grind aspect and funds the fun. I wouldn't have too much of an issue with money if things didn't cost incredibly unrealistic amounts. I don't mean cars, I'm talking about clothes and weaponary mainly. I mean, $60k for a firework launcher that we can only buy ammo for on certain occasions?
Also its not uncommon knowledge to know that they have done live streams with known glitchers and promoting, yet they punish us for doing it? What kind of moral standard does that show?
And yes they have listened to use on some things that we have asked for but theres so many things that they don't allow us to do that don't actually harm the game or give an advantage. For example, storing police cars. What is the harm in storing one and even maybe modifying it? Its a car with flashy lights and a special livery, it doesn't exactly give you god mode. Many many people have asked for it, along with military and police uniform but they refuse to budge on the topic.
I had some big respect for Rockstar before and on release of GTA V but this Online part of the game has been handled quite poorly and they have been terrible at communicating with us. They made $1billion in sales, surely they should have fixed the game by now?
I appreciate the free DLC (which may or may not be another cash card pusher) but I would much rather they focus on fixing the game and delivering on past promises before going on any further.
