Online is Lifeless compared to Singleplayer


SnyderGuy

Recommended Posts

I am sure we all agree that GTA Online is absolutely lifeless. I think some major things that determine whether or not it's lifeless or not is:

1) Lacks of animals

-Seriously, where are the animals? The desert, the forest, and the ocean is all lifeless, hell even the sky is lifeless, I remember in single player where we could be flying a plane or helicopter and bird is blown to bits and your engine breaks and sends you spiraling down towards sandy shores.

2) Lack of Random Events

-In single player, there are random events, such as police cars chasing down the hit-man in a high speed chase, or some police and some gang members having a shootout, or perhaps just a gang battle after a drug deal. Or the extremely rare point where there are guys at the top of chiliad who all jump to their death, or perhaps just seeing planes and 747s in the sky... Or maybe street races..

Any others you can think of? I can think of a few but they have some flaws

I agree 100% with you that GTAo would be well served with random NPC events to spice things up...

I think it would be awesome if all of the gang factions were constantly fighting for control of Los Santos, kind of like how GTAo players fight in the streets. It would be fun to get mixed up in a Gun Fight between a large number of NPC gangs.

Having random NPC street Racers that challenged you to Races would also be really cool.

 

This could be a proactive way to get GTAo players involved in playing different game modes, I hate lobbies where people are just being retards in free roam

GTA Online is full of no-lifers, so I guess in a sense it is lifeless, yes. :colgate:

I think animals were removed online cos some players would make silly Youtube videos about harming them, just my opinion... ( I heard PETA was mad when they saw some GTA V videos on youtube that contained animals being "abused" :bored:) Idk why they get so butthurt about virtual animals instead of focusing on the real ones

You talkin' about the same people who made Pokemon Black and Blue right?

Animals were probably removed because "activists" hate seeing animals being harmed in a video game lol.

C'mon guys, if R* gave two sh*ts about what Peta thought they would have removed animals from SP as well as MP...It must be a Lag type issue or something to do with Cash Cards

Butterflies are insects, not animals.

No, they made a petition and it only got 100k when it needed like 500k. So I don't think it has to do with PETA.

1) Animals = Lag

2) Lag

 

At least from what i've heard

 

 

Lol what you've heard... blows

 

ANimals is just another type of NPC. It would create as much lag as the npc standing right next to you. How about taking that npc out and putting an animal instead?

Let's replaces ALL NPCS with animals. I see Trevor as a mongoose for some reason.

You forgot a comma, and Einstein had nothing to do with the animal kingdom. Also, insects aren't animals, even if they are classified under the Kingdom Animalia.

Totally, they should have an update during something called "Hunting season"

 

It should be easy, a mere copy/paste to replace all npcs with dears and sh*t lol

Lag could be a problem. Imagine seeing a cougar a couple hundred meters away & getting killed by one when you see it's 15 meters from you but other players see it attack you :p

What so they are f*cking plants? Are they gases? Are they a form of rock?

I would really like to know what insects are if they are not animals.

I think SnyderGuy is confusing "animals" and "mammals", or something. Regardless, I love the part where he says that even though insects are classified in the Kingdom Animalia, this doesn't necessarily make them animals. This is too good. Popcorn time.

less sh*t equals smoother online. who knows maybe rockstar will make the PC version better, if not I'm sure a modder will.

I understand why some stuff got cut to save lag and game processing, I would like to see the PS4/XOne version to include animals and actual gang fights. This game looks great and is running on...8-9 year old hardware? It's amazing how the game runs despite the long loading and the random freezes I've had. Sure, these issues may or may not show up in the next-gen but if animals and "life" in general show up, I honestly would not mind.

*awaits PC elitist comments*

The only time I see some random events Online, its on Grove Street. I see the helicopter sometimes hovering around. I swear I once saw a driveby happening over at Grove Street; It was the last I ever saw

This just in, according to a self appointed scientist, mammals are no longer classified as animals

Seriously though, if insects aren't animals and mammals aren't animals, then what the hell is an animal

(btw, if its a alive and its not a plant, or a fungus, its an animal)
