I hate the DLC content personally . . . I still play because I like the game inherently.
I thought online initially was going to be a giant MMO- "living breathing world" where you could be who you wanted to be. I don't feel like much of an individual.
When it comes to games like this, I have a urge to set my self away from the others, to turn heads with my "Character" and my playstyle.
For me, the delivery of this is 50/50.
The car culture is annoying. Needs more domestic models. Individualization for me trumps everything in a video game. The cars you drive, the clothing you wear, the different types of content, that's what I care about, especially in an MMO setting. The clothesssssss . . . the customization of your character . . . ughhhhhh >
Like the Rapid GT, stuff like that I love, but then the constant simular updates like cunning stunts and the free roam updates, annoys me, because theres many a thing they could add to improve the quality of life besides the free roam updates.
I'm not quite sure if I'm making sense. Hipsters and high life, stuff like that is what I like... constant military stuff, the "niche" stuff without much room for other segments of a big, diverse tent of players, not too too much.
I would welcome a competitor. I would love a game where you could be whoever you wanted to be, welcomes the diversity of its players, etc.
Let's hope a valid alternative comes out soon... This is all aimed at creating their profit, even that damn dripfeeding they're doing...
