You and I had a blast the other night doing the CEO missions and selling Air Freight with only eight people in the lobby.
I've already spent most of the money we made, and now I can finally enjoy tooling around like everybody else who owns that car! lol!
But, dude, I gotta tell you, while it was seriously a lot of fun hanging out and playing the other night, once your friends came online, everything just turned sour.
That one guy, BagelBytes420... what was his deal? I mean not just once or twice, but EVERY single time?
And the other friend of yours, xXo.ReeperDeeth.oXx. Is he even aware that's not how you spell "reaper" or "death?"
Not for nothing, bro, but once they joined, even you started to become kind of an open-mouth chewer. That's why I quit. I was getting really annoyed.
SO, this is a possible scenario of two random players meeting and enjoying GTAO together... until the friends/crew of one of them join and ruin the fun.
The purpose of this thread is to open a discussion about the kinds of friends you play with in GTAO, what kinds of personalities they exhibit, how you know them, whether you like playing with them or let out a deep, eyes closed sigh like Napoleon Dynamite when they appear online.
There's a thousand types of players out there, as we've discussed in the 3,512 Types of GTAO Players thread, but this is more specifically geared toward friends.
For example, I'm more of a "lone wolf" type in GTAO, and prefer to play alone. However, I have a few friends that join me online that affect my game and level of immersion.
They might be labeled as:
Pothead: My friend Mick is a good guy, but he's a ridiculous stoner. I'm not, so whenever he gets online he always screws up missions and goes AFK at the worst times. In real life, he's kind of the same way, always showing up late or not at all.
Ruiner 2017: Razzle is a guy I only know from my crew. Don't know him IRL. While most of my crew like to do missions and make money, he's the guy who always fails out missions. Always! His most popular quote would be, "sorry guys!" and "my bad!" Whenever he shows up online, we all just roll our eyes. We've stopped doing missions when he joins.
Let's Do This, Not That: One of my close friends, Denny, is a great guy. We hang out in real life, paintball, mountain bike, etc. and he's got a great sense of humor. But, in real life, we always kind of have to do what "he" wants to do. It's never "hey, you want to..." It's, "hey, let's..." In GTAO, he's the worst. No matter what I'm in the middle of, he'll start with, "hey, stop doing that and let's go do this," whatever it is. When he's the only one online, I'll just do it because it's better than playing alone. But, even in the middle of a mission, he'll be like, "Hey, you want to get out of this and go do a Survival?" ugh.
Chilly McChillz: There's a person in my crew who I've never met and who doesn't talk over a mic. He/she only sends messages. I assume it's a guy, but I don't know for sure. What I do know is that when he/she is online, everyone gets really excited and shouts, "McChillz is online!" The reason is because this person is just the most fun person in our crew to hang out with. On those nights when everyone else leaves, McChillz will just do whatever I'm doing. Bikes, cars, Golf, flying, whatever. Messages I send, like, "Armwrestling?" are always met with, "Hellzyeah!" It's kind of to the point where if McChillz doesn't show up when my crew is online, I don't like it as much.
So, what are your experiences with friends online, either people from real life whom you engage with in GTAO, people you've never met in a crew, or even randoms you come to know in a long, one night session of jobs and missions?
The good, the bad, and the ugly are all welcome. As always, just curious how you handle friends in this game and how they affect your immersion and your gameplay.
Randy waited all night for his friend to show up in GTAO, but he never arrived. After several hours, he began to rethink the friendship.
