R* are going to milk this cow until the end. This means more mediocre online-aimed games, which have nothing but name in common with the original GTAs.

 

I may not get GTA 6; my 20-year old self would punch me for saying this, but I don not like what GTA has become.

I was convinced that single player GTA was dead as a duck given online.

I genuinely thought they would not make another one and simply make an entire disc of online content.

The game informer article from last week made me change my mind.

Although I am gonna be upset having to start all over again in online 2.0

GTA5 has a very small storyline, imo. It really killed me the fact you have absolutely no way to earn money in single-player after you spend the 25 mils.

 

Compare it to GTA San Andreas... 3 giant cities, rural areas, properties, casinos, and side missions. I really thought after SA we would have bigger cities, and even more features.

 

Hell, single player doesnt even let you modify the character appropriately. I have yet to play it online, since I dont have internet in my house for the time being, but the times I played SA-MP I recall you needed to be a ninja to keep yourself alive.

 

I imagine it's close to impossible to stay alive in GTAOnline.

It's confusing as hell. It's supposed to be online, but the first mission you do is talk to Lamar and drive around on your own. Then there's a very confusing menu where you choose what you want to play, and I barely managed to figure out which one is a racing mode. Loading takes forever.

 

It is nowhere near as good and fun as SAMP, I remember back in 2011 when a hundred of us were going crazy atop of Chiliad, jumping off on the buses, chasing each other - fun stuff. R* version of online gaming is very restricted and not user-friendly, so I haven't really launched it since that evening when I had a few races. Btw I didn't figure out how to do a different race, so I just played the same one over and over again.

Its simplicity coupled with lots of interactivity, features, and tons of toys for sheer fun makes SAMP stand out from the rest, esp. ONLINE. I'm only into single player, but SAMP is so good that I just can't resist the temptation to play the multiplayer mode with my friends. Here's an interesting write up on Why A Million People Still Play Multiplayer Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Every Month

GTA will die when R* will persist creating a 100% pvp game, and will keep ignoring peaceful lobbies demand. or if a competitor is born. and this was pretty close with sleeping dogs

If Reflections capitalize on their Driver franchise, I seriously think we have a contender.

 

It set the stonemark with Driver 2 for the PS1, free roam and car jacking and I only think if they dedicate themselves they can cross over. Not very possible, but its plausible. I wonder if they'll make a sequel anytime soon for the PS4...

 

Though Rockstar needs to deliver us a 4K HD Vice City, for the hell of it. GTA3 was a shining star, but Vice City when it lauched, whoa. I still remember how thrilling it was to collect all the cash from properties in a single day (24 minutes) and start all over again.

 

 

All we ever wanted is interactivity, GTA Online brought us that, but they're just going nuts with this online thing. We already pay to have internet connection, pay to buy the game, now you have to pay for everything else inside the game or else you'll be risking yourself to having a very unhappy and deadly gameplay. If we were able to become "citizens" and each having their respectful jobs (robbery, kidnapping, car jacking, as well as other legit jobs) I think they could make it worthwhile.

 

Else it's just gonna turn into another deathmatch until people's interest goes to something else and the online GTA has a demise.

For me Rockstar already killed GTA Online due to his those sh*tty Sharkcards and his high pricy vehicles, properties, hangars, business etc... If im work at Rockstars, ill try make game better than they did it.  :rampage:

Btw kids are also ruining a game with his killing people for no reason also. {Rockstar better make a Underage report for kids}  :r*:

well i'm sorry to say that,  but personnally i always found the sharks cards a pretty good model. i mean i own anything i want in game, and i never spent a dollar (bought the game at full price though). i think the model described in the article above can be good, if we get regular quality content. i fully agree on the kids though, but i bet you know that already. the way the game is pvp oriented, and we still don't have classic things, like for example another bar, or animals in solo, or that kind of easy things to implement, is actually what made me prevent from buying some shark cards. i'm pretty sure i would have bought a few already just to support the company, if solo players would have been a bit better treated
