Have you even once thought about hosting your own "Free Mode"? It is definitely possible to do.

Free mode! I want a TDM. I hate FM because it turns into a deathmatch.

mercie_blink.gifsuicidal.gif you hate a mode because it basically turns from the mode it is, into the mode you want mercie_blink.gifmercie_blink.gif

Actually he said he wanted Team Deathmatch, not Deathmatch.

 

If he likes both modes as much though, then you're right turn.gif

GTA 4 is a rather new game, being only (almost) 2 months old. Not everyone got the game on release day. Still others may have had to wait financially to be able to get the game. 5th place isn't dead last.

you say this, but didnt GTA4 break all pervious records for media sold?? also COD4 has been out since last november and hasent seen 3rd place ONCE, nevermind forth or fifth.

 

bottom line, after the "newness" of the game wore off it got quite boring with the realistic approach that R* took with it. if GTA4 MP was like san andreas with the amount of things you could do it would still be sitting pretty in first place. i dont know whos idea it was not to let you do the things you can do in SP in MP (like bowling, darts, ect) but they should be shot.

 

i know one thing, if GTA4 had a parashute id still be basejumping daily online......

While in singleplayer mode, whip out your phone. Choose multiplayer, custom, then scroll down and reserve some slots for your friends. Then start the game. You'll be host, and you can choose when to start the game.

 

Playing with 3 guys does suck.

I don't know, it seems obvious to me that the entire MP was rushed. I mean, come on, no police uniform except in cops and crooks, for what reason? They've confirmed AFAIK two DLC packs, and last I heard those weren't expected at least until '09. Oh well. VC and SA were both major improvements in many different areas over III so I'm not about to condemn them and stomp my foot because I don't get fingerless gloves or a parachute. Is it perfect? No. Do I hope they improve it and allow us to do alot of the stuff we could do in SP? Bet your ass I do. Trying to compare GTA to COD4 doesn't work either, one's a shooter and one's a explore the sandbox. Can you hope into a car or any vehicle for that matter in COD4? Last time I played it you couldn't. Don't get me wrong, it's a awesome game, I guess I just don't see a point in saying I can't base jump in GTA so it sucks but COD4 is the greatest even though it doesn't have base jumping either. Oh, and one more thing, what the hell is it with this realistic approach crap? R* gets sh*t on for it yet COD4 is praised for it. I guess it's better when you can hit someone with a dildo while wearing a clown suit to jack a car then put a bullet through the windshield.

i wasn't saying it sucks per say, i was just saying the amount of things to do (read: longevity) in MP is solely lacking, mainly because R* wanted to go a more realistic route. which is fine for SP, but give me that over the top, crazy ass shit for MP in a sand box game.

 

its looking as if I'm gonna have to wait for saints row 2 for my over the top, million things to do sandbox game play. which is sad in my eyes, as GTA shouldn't be taken off the top by a second comer. then again they say competition is good, and hopefully (fingers crossed) SR2 does what it promises, the next installment of GTA will go back to its roots and do it right.

Can't say that I haven't complained but there's plenty of 'replay value' in C&C for me tounge2.gif

Maybe YOU just aren't creative enough. If the game is boring maybe it's because you and your friends just aren't finding anything fun to do and end up doing the same thing. Or the problem is that you have no friends and get stuck with people that you can't understand and just want to kill you.

good and valid point.

 

Players are getting bored and messing around a lot more. Those who want to take this semi-seriously get no pleasure out of playing online any longer. The online modes weren't designed right from the get-go and now people who want to play for fun w/o being run over or hearing kids play music or 'bla bla bla' on their mic are forced to deal with the consequences.

 

Lag, idiots who are just messing around due to boredom and such have ruined online play. There are countless threads about this.

 

I feel like devils advocate but I am so upset by the lack of effort and thought put into online play by the people who made this game that I can't help it. There are soooooo many online versions of other games that there's no excuse for the choices made and implemented in the online version of GTA. I mean really... they couldn't use one idea from other games if it made sense or not. They had to do it their way, even if it didn't make any sense.

 

-Allowing one person to decide the next game even if they aren't there (host that is).

-Not allowing players to choose the room/game mode they enter instead of forcing them to accept a game mode they don't want and argue or just try to vote the host of the game if they don't like their preferences. I mean come on.. really is this a joke?!

-Making it impossible to know what idiot is playing music or static or blabbing on their mic to annoy people OR running over or team killing or shooting teammates so we can vote them during a game. Why not? Is this a joke?

 

There are countless other issues already mentioned on here so I'll leave them to their appropriate thread, but really... how many online games have people played with so many pathetic and minuscule problems like this? It may be R*'s first, but they had plenty of examples to go by. COD, Battlefield, SOCOM and countless other online MP games to get ideas from.

It is really inexcusable if you ask me. Look at MGS4 online. They never had multiplayer before right? So for their first attempt they have a lobby system where you can host or see everything about the game you are about to join, a matchmaking system that pairs you with other people close to your level (and gets at least 10 before starting), and even a training system where vets can help newbs.

 

I find MGS4 online's gameplay to not be that much fun compared to GTA's, but not if I can't find a game that suits my tastes...and it is nearly impossible to do so. GTA MP is going to die very quickly unless they can do something about this. It simply isn't worth the frustration.
