I'm not here to hate/rant - just here to ask an honest question, which I guess has a lot of answers to it. Industry, economy, opinions, taste, time, patience etc...there's lost of angles to the phenomenon that is GTA Online....let's take some time to gather and share thoughts on it. Let's speculate for a while shall we?
WHY exactly do we, the players, the customers, get this feeling like R* is just throwing us a small bone once in a while and not giving GTA 100 % attention, as we'd love to see them do. Hmmm, maybe they do and we're just ungrateful little bastards who don't understand what it takes to make the magic happen....but I don't think it's the majority of players thinking that way.
Again, maybe it's just me having this feeling/point of view (GTA Online kind of being abandoned and kept alive artificially)...but I don't think so. I don't play GTA Online that much, not intensively really and certainly not on regular basis. I'd like to but I ain't got that much time on my hands, unfortunately. I guess people who play regularly know best what I mean. Problems, issues, missing (needed) content...there's more one could add, I guess.
Anyhow, you all know that GTA Online has soooo much potential, but seemingly, instead of reaching into it and tapping that source of epicness, something always gets in the way...and for some reason I think R* has already "given up" on it.
What I'd like to ask you, is what you think could be the reason for the current state GTA online is in. I mean, correct me if I'm wrong...if there's absolutely nothing wrong with GTA Online and you're totally content with the content and so on...feel free to express that aswell.
SO, what is it? the modders? missing content? Is R* already working on another game and has to elocate most of their resources to it? The next Red Dead title?
I'll add more thoughts in the future...making myself clearer than i have now, possibly.
Anyway, hoping to get some fruitful discussion going. Peace out for now!
