Rockstar over ambitious with GTA Online?

Recommended Posts

dewan2000

Overall on paper GTA online seems great on paper, a persistant(MMO) world. But with it being on current Gen consoles I just dont think we will be able to see its true potential. The game runs decent for singleplayer but when you get online things get bad. Some of the issues are server side but there are many other problems. (Pop-in, constant loading)

 

I feel GTA online would be much better if it were released on PC and possibly next Gen and with some actual good dedicated severs. Maybe ill be proved wrong in the coming month but I feel current gen consoles are not up to the task in terms of power to make gta online Amazing

Only issues I got so far while playing was the constant loading... I want to do a damn mission and I can't because it keeps on loading indefinitely... but anyway this stuff is fixable so It's a bit soon to tell if GTA:O is as good as they said or not...besides the servers are pretty messes up for now :/

I can't speak for public lobbies (I have been avoiding them) just been playing solo or in a small party, just checking the jobs and races out.

It will be good, but limited with the hardware, it has LOTS of potential though... 2 hours of GTA:O and I'm already hooked, so much more to see and do too!
With PC and next gen they can really raise the bar, and their aim is to recreate "the world"

 

Also, we're 3 days in (1st day it's working though lol) and it's really good... imagine what it'll be like in a years time (hopefully on PC/next gen)

What it'll be like for the next GTA (or Rockstar game?)

Definitely over ambitious for a GTA. Its an absolute disaster, and im not just talking about the failings of it... the way its laid out is awful, horrible lobbies and etc. Rdr multiplayer interface was perfection, why they do this horrible thing to GTA? The pursuitof more and mmore money. I feel like no love has gone into it all, and surely thats not right

Like I said, it would most likely be much better on a PC or next gen where things are quicker. Feels like the 360 and ps3 are just limiting its potential. Be nice to have 32 players instead of 16.

this sounds crazy but i would've made gta:o a seperate game running an improved gta 3 engine and the original lc, vc and sa maps with better shooting/driving mechanics and tons of new features built like an mmo with hundreds per server. nobody would care about the retro graphics just look at minecraft. all that would matter is the gameplay and tons of content could be added quickly and cheaply because it wouldn't be hd.

Rockstar was overconfident in their approach.

YES a bit, for example the reason there are no animals online,a nd the traffic is 50% cause otherwise the netcode whould have to handle the synching of all those asstes constantly, even pc games have a lot of porblems with that, and considering all those assets have ai and % triggers, the only solution whould be dedicated servers, in this case about 1 million of them LOL.

 

To pull this off on consoles is a massive task, fps games barely use the net, and defo dont have AI involved, especialy not over a massive landcape like this.

I'll agree that GTA O was a pretty grand project and yes it was/is ambitious... But to go so far to say that "no love has gone into it", You sir are a moron!

 

As a graphic designer by trade, this game makes my head absolutely swim with the amount of logistics involved for them to create a world on this scale. The bespoke feel of every area down to the tiny textures and details (like gum under the table or stains on NPC car windows) is a mind blowing achievement!

 

Yes i'll concede that the game would be better on the next-gen console, but for what it is now, I think it's amazing! Sure the online experience needs fine tuning (to say the least), but like all good online games, it just requires a little and patients for them to get up to speed!

I prefer an ambitious developer, even if they fail miserably. It's nice to see a big studio shoot for the stars for a change, as opposed to the CoD studios that keep playing it safe.

I played online for 8 hours and I didn't notice any pop-ins or long loading times.

The idea of the cloud and progressive world has NEXT GEN consoles written all over it, but they couldn't left current gen consoles out, they need o have something worthy to make people buy a new console and the game again other then just better graphics and performance.This is why their strategy is a masterpiece plan.

Im honestly not impressed at all with the cloud? So GTA Online is running off the cloud? It seems to be very slow and full of issues. If the majority of online games for console will be using this "Cloud" Crap, then its most likely going to be a pass for me. Atleast in terms of online gaming. Whats soo bad about having actual Dedicated servers?

I wasnt trying to imply "no love has gone into it". All im trying to say is it feels like this is something that would of been best saved for next gen...or if you are going for something soo huge and new to the GTA series, have some Dedicated Servers atleast instead of going with this "Cloud Gaming". I havnt played games online on console for a while, I forgot how messy it can be at times.

The online is dysfunctional. Anyone who disagrees just tolerate bull sh*t like your character not saving, load times longer than the initial install of the game, frequent freezes and disconnects and..... and..... no shoulder switch (while aiming a weapon).. Also the cops are 10x more psychic.

I think they're over ambitious. All the next gen games coming out brag about all the features gta online is trying to do like cloud servers being persistent all that so it's like rockstar trying to lead the charge too early . But gta online still fun af

It be nice if they come out with gtao just as a downloadable game for a small price on next gen. I think this would benefit people more

And to me, this whole Cloud server stuff is just looking like crap. Think ill stick to my initial plan and wait for the PC version to come out and play online on that...instead of wasting money on xbox live.

Yes they were ambitious but that's what made it great. There are some pop ins and frame rate drops here and there but those certainly don't detract from the actual gaming experience. I found it to be very VERY fun. It was the most fun I'd had in years of any multiplayer tbh.
