That's a double negative. So he has the right. We need to communicate without insulting and certainly without making fun of those with diseases beyond their control.

No. A double negative would be "I don't want nothing." What I said is 100% grammatically correct.

You do not have the right to not be offended.


I can explain it to you but I can not understand it for you. No insult to your intelligence intended, but reading comprehension is key in a social atmosphere.

If I do not have the right to not be offended then I have the right to be offended.

I have a feeling all those making fun of the OP are players who never played on PS3/360 and joined the community on PS4/XB1/PC so they don't know how the game used to be and how much fun it actually way prior to all this futuristic crap.

 

Before if someone wanted to kill you they actually had to drive across the map and chase you down, Now they can blow you up with a single click, send a strike team or simply fly across the map on the oppressor which to me isn't in the true spirit of the game.

 

Players who joined post PS4/XB1 will never know what it was like to have to EARN our weapons by ranking up instead of having all but a few weapons unlocked at level one or having to rob all the stores on the map just to earn enough money to buy their first two car garage or play Rooftop Rumble for hours on end to finally afford a decent car but the payouts were decent enough to where it didn't take long and the most expensive car was $1,000,000 but all of it was fun to do now it's a chore as everything is so expensive and the chances of owning them all doing legit work is very unlikely without buying shark cards.

Opposite end of the spectrum for me.  I love the way Online is done and I never cared for the old style GTA online like in 4.  To be honest I loathed the online in GTA4.

 

Took a break after the I/E update and came back with Doomsday and Im hooked again.  Doing the I/E with bunker stuff and new Heist stuff is awesome.  IM also making bank when it comes to earnings.  I love it.  Before I was kinda strapped for cash often but now I can buy anything I want.

 

Its an amazing thing to be able to constantly play this game Online literally for free.  I wouldnt change a thing.

im dissapointed in two things:

1. rockstar screwed up, they could and should have done a way better job with the storyline of gta v.

2. the sharkcard, microtransaction system, for me this will be the only and last game i play that runs with microtransactions, or the sharkcard system.

Day one player here and completely agree with you, it was a bit of a grind but fun while doing it, now it just feels like a second job to be able to afford anything in this update

I originally played on Xbox 360 but I actually started playing post Xbox One and I can definitely understand where OP is coming from. I still think the game is great but I haven't seen the worst of PC, and that's where I think GTA is the worst. GTA on console isn't all rainbows, but I would bet money it's worse on PC, so I can't complain.

Yeah, I agree too. Though I do feel Doomsday Heist has done more to add cars that are fun for less than the obligatory $1m, lol.

 

Still pricey, just more on par than exceeding previous DLC's of the last couple of years. But agree that since Crates or more-so, I/E, things have gotten very expensive.

It seems that many of them were playing GTA on ps1/ps2 or pc. "Realistic" seems to be the main point of contention. It has never been, really. This game has always been rooted in freedom and chaos packaged in absurd, childish humor. Anybody upset about online ruining the series identity never played GTA 2. As for all the flying Deluxo' s, Batmobile's, and KITT's, I think alot of that stems from the PC community's successful mods in GTA IV, like the time traveling Deloreon, the many Batmobile's, and KITT. Not to mention the many military vehicles. Also, Rockstars clear affinity for tv/movie parody, has been demonstrated by every GTA game ever being loaded with parody and references. IDK, I think OP must have been seeing those games in a Jack Thompson light. It's rated M for Mature because you have to be mature to get the joke. 30 "Claude Speed's" in one city will always turn into Liberty City Survivor without restriction, and THAT would be the wrong direction in GTA. Anything preventing me from going on a "rampage" or creating a "State of Emergency" is fundamentally non-GTA.

Gta's "real life" 

 

- Bikes that fly with rocket boosters on the back and it fires missiles. 

- Batmobile with rocket booster that also fires missiles.

- Delorean that also flies with missiles. 

- Jet with a laser beam that obliterates everything on sight that was stolen from aliens. 

- Another jet with a laser beam that costs 3.5 million more. 

- A riot vehicle that can't handle a riot. 

- A surface to air missile tank that can't lock on to aircraft

Wrong, so very wrong.

I remember what GTA used to be from GTA 1/2 on Ps1. GTA IV decided to go for the boring, gritty and brooding game. Before that it was dildo knives and James Bond cars.

I am defending it because it's classic GTA. FUN, before it was all death matches and K/D Ratios.

Then tell me, where the f*ck are the dildo's and the chainsaw in GTA 5 STORY MODE? (Not Online because we all know it got all the unnecessary SCI-FI crap for the little kids)

GTA IV was intended for mature audiences, not immature brats like you.

I feel that I am getting old,  Multiplayer has changed so much. Back in the days you enter the free roam lobby to hear all sorts of fun going down, but now every one is in there own little group doing there own thing (private party chat)  

 

Whats happen to the game chat we had in Red Dead? where all we had to do to communicate with other players, is travel to the same location.

I'm not as long a fan of GTA as many of you, only played 4 and 5.  But I've been gaming since the original Doom and even farther back then that.  Before game consoles. 

 

But the changes I've seen in GTA even in the 3 years I've been playing it are shocking.  I'm almost afraid of what GTA 6 will be like.  Will a person even be able to get all the money they need by grinding?  I have a feeling there will be no choice but to buy shark cards in GTA 6.

The military aspect doesn't fit the game. We're 3-bit gangsters, not dictators. And as cool as it is to have movie cars in the game, having them boost/fly is too much. It wouldn't have been so bad if they had limited the less realistic stuff to races and such, that way we could still have fun without having the downtown skyline turn into the Jetsons. But since we're already on that train, they might as well let us fly the UFO.

Imagine criminals trying to attack each other with attack helis and jets?  The real military would come in and declare martial law.  I know, it's just a game but to some of us it has to be a little believable.

I sold all my cars and motorcycle collection. Everything that didn't launch missiles was sold so I could buy a hover car and blow up all the role players driving around in their regular vehicles

 

This is a missile battle game now , sad to say

 

Next DLC will probably be UFOs shooting lazers.
