So what's the point of GTA Online?

Recommended Posts

Ihatemyself

What's the end game to all of this?

 

When you play a game, you want to see how the narrative and ultimately the game ends..So what keeps the player motivated to keep playing?

 

Okay you do some races with friends, mod your cars, spend cash on some nice clothing, play some tennis with some guy from your crew, maybe a little gold. Fun stuff got it. But surely that fun wanes after a while, no?

 

I imagine after a week or 2 that would become massively boring. So what keeps the player moving forward?

 

Especially when there's only 16 players in a large map like in gta v, i kind of some lost where the long lasting fun appeal will be coming from. 1 or 2 weeks, sure might be a total blast.

 

But from what rockstar is saying, they want this to be an eventual stand alone product, which will contain liberty city as well..so

lol dude, when GTA online is out they will be 500 missions! and I'm sure they will be adding missions, don't forget the heists, robbing stores,buy your own WHORE,.... stock markets races etc, also you will need to be on edge, cause say you're robbing a bank with some fellow people, and what if one of the people tries to kill you to take your share? lots of possibility's and stuff to watch out for... if you get bored that quick.. don't play this game.. lol

Jesus, could you make life sound more depressing? What's the point of Call of Duty or any other online game if all you'll do is do the same thing over and over again? With that concept, you should just off yourself because all of life is repetitive actions. lol

There is no end game. Rockstar said that they would add the other maps to the GTA:O world. That means Vice City, Liberty City, San Fierro, Las Venturas, and (maybe) north yankton. They might also add London but I highly highly doubt it.

Whats the point of playing CoD online, or every other game online other than an MMO that doesnt have end game? For competition, constant fun, and being able to play an online game without paying a subscription.

 

GTA is the best online game of all, it allows you to go ahead and bullsh*t around with no time limit in freemode, causing all kinds of chaos, and get down to the competitive stuff if you really want to.

 

Now with everything added and the way they are going to keep it updated, i really dont see the need to play any other game for a long time, this is a many different games rolled into one, and better than that cheap ass saints row crap by a country mile.

Yeah im pretty sure the missions are more mmorpg styled. Think of it as full gta story just compressed. then once thats over you find another compressed story. DLC would play a big factor as well. But then again you hate yourself so idk if you'll "get the point"

Because robbing other people is too mainstream.

The point of GTA Online is to play with other people over a broadband network. I thought that was made obvious with the title GTA ONLINE.

Seriously though, stop trying to complicate things, it's not that serious.

It takes long to reach endgame, once reached you help out friends and mess around. Even in IV i had ~2 years of fun with 2 rl mates... counting the simple trainer, too.

Your answer has a name: MMORPG. What you find in a MMO you will find here. What you want to do in a MMO, you will, hopefully, be able to do here.

  • The ultimate shape of GTA Online will be determined as much by you, the player, as by the work we put in. What you like and don’t like, what you play and what you want will determine how the game develops and what it turns into.

     

  • Everything we do will be informed by feedback from you all – from the types of missions that roll out to all kinds of future content.

     

  • We are planning for a constant stream of new content, tweaks and updates in the weeks and months ahead.
  • [email protected]: This email address will be active from launch day as a place to send your input and feedback direct to us relating to the game.

Umm if it is outcome or goals you are after I think the reputation and experience system will drive you.

 

My goal is to get my rep up where dude know if they see me coming they scatter like Omar in the wire. And my crew deep with loyal killers.

 

Come get some.

You've obviously never played an MMO before. It's about playing with other people. You want a story? Play the story. For god sake's this is a GTA game. If you're confused at how people could enjoy themselves doing these things in a SANDBOX game you need to rethink why you play GTA games lol.
