I did the submarine mission for the first time under the cover of darkness, it f*cking sucked. Crashed the damn sub into everything just getting out of the harbor.

I actually liked it, it's a nice change of pace from the bland Los Santos and empty desert, I spent hours swimming around in scuba gear just looking for random stuff.

The problem is it just isn't very interesting. Maybe if they included a sunken pirate ship or underwater caves then yeah.

 
Then a giant sea monster comes out of the cave, and all you have is a knife to kill it with. If you do manage to kill it you unlock a clue to where the jetpack is located.
That sounds more fun than finding 30 waste barrels or submarine pieces for some old lady and not get rewarded significantly. :p
Uhm, the real reward is that you get a unique vehicle, the Asea. If you
steal it from her when the cutscene for collecting all pieces ends.

I don't get the point of all the weapon pickups since you don't lose your guns if you get killed or busted this time around. Maybe one or two of each kind of gun but not all over the place especially when you can find them above ground shark-free. Now if they had put the advanced rifle somewhere or another very rare/endgame weapon then it might be worth the hunt.

The screens they showed before the release had people going scuba diving. I think if they added some underwater combat and crime based activities then people would like it more. Picture driving a boat through the ocean playing a side mission with drug trafficing then breaking the boats carrying the drugs and diving to get them or even try to steal the boats without destroying them to make it more dynamic. They could also add some more unique weapons that are only found underwater, finding antique pistol which belonged to some pirates or maybe some swords. And with what I said before about the underwater combat, an underwater rifle and a spear would also open up more possibilities which would be very unique to underwater like firefights and hunting. They could have also made some easter eggs like a huge kraken or a megaloden shark (could also be a part of a drug trip based stranger and freaks missions based on myths to make keep the player from losing immersion).

How is that a reward when the Asea spawns in traffic? Well, it does on PC. Not sure about consoles.

I only did that side quest on PS3 and there it doesnt spawn in traffic at all. Only way to get it in story mode legit is to collect all pieces. I know it is purchaseable in GTAO though.

Anyways, the original idea was that the Asea was the reward, hence also the very unique and cool mods
for it. Maybe Rockstar changed that in updates.

It isn't unique now it spawns in traffic on the PS4 and XB1 versions. Besides being rare the car itself isn't anything special and isn't worth the time to collect the pieces to get it.

When I done this I thought we'd be given....wait for it.... an actual submarine.

But the game was like "Haha here's $10 for your effort and a unique grocery getter :lol: ".

Well, you have the option to buy the dive shop and a submarine will always spawn there.

I agree 100% OP, and I said as much when R* went on and on about how amazing their underwater world was, and the fan-addicts attacked me for it. Yes, so glad they spent so much time modeling kelp instead of giving us a drug dealing system.

Lmao
 

In most games, it's
 

What games ?
 

Far cry 3-4
Skyrim
Just Cause 2-3
San Andreas
Battlefield



Going to be pretty empty
 

Where is that come fro..m.. ?
 

It's the ocean
 

Personnaly I don't care if the ocean is empty or whatever IRL because it's a game and I want to have things to do so whatever if it's the ocean.
 

Who cares about it? It's the Ocean. I bet in most OWG you most likely spend 95% of your time on land. Besides you're acting as if it's totally empty and undetailed.
What were you expecting? A secret underwater base?
 

Divers, unique items, mysterious plane, boat wreck which can maybe trigger quests or whatever, I was execpting much more. A (secret) underwater base sounds good.
 

OK, agree with the divers and the quest but the plane and ship wreaks do have a few things that has easter eggs thing that has to do with strangers and freaks.
I swear, people are always finding something small to whine about...
 

Something small ? The huge empty thing all around the map ? Take off the magic fanboy powder of your eyes because this is definitely not something small. I am not whining, we just stated obvious facts and also some ideas to improve the underwater gameplay by the way.
It is small, because it's the ocean. You have games out there that have rivers lakes and oceans that are bland as tofu but you don't see their fanbase bitching about it. Not fanboying, just pointing out that this is another asinine thing to complain about.

Sorry for grammar errors. Sent with an LG-K7.

This particular aspect was well criticized before the game was even released. They said it would be boring. They said there would probably be nothing much to do down there. They said it would take up development time and resources that could have been better utilized elsewhere. Lo and behold, all of these criticisms seem like they were valid. Calling them asinine and referring to it as "complaining" isn't really contributing to this discussion.

Well since I disagreed with the thread and supported my argument on why I feel this thread is pointless and stupid (Not to mention I didn't break any rules). I think I did contribute to this discussion.

What ?

What games ? and what do you know about their fanbase, did you even browse these (games) forums ?

Your arguments are "it's the ocean so wtf did you expect" "but but there are games out there with empty ocean and nobody complaining so shut up guys"

The thread isn't about why you think it's stupid, it's about underwater exploration.
