What is it about GTA Online updates that gets players so hyped?

Yes, yes, another update-related thread, but this is about updates in general. I can't help but wonder...what is it about GTA Online updates that get people so hyped and pumped up?

 

I mean, I've seen posts talking about staying up all night waiting for an update.

 

I've been on other game forums when the developer announces a new update or new DLC, and there, I've never seen posts like that, and the hype is nowhere near as big.

Simple. New content. People like new things and the fact it's free makes it better since they don't have to pay $9.99 for it.

It's not hype, it's looking forward to new content. There's simply nothing wrong with that.

The answers are pretty obvious. I'm not going to even bother to write them down.

 

Ask a stupid question, expect to get stupid replies.

"Everyone"..... Only Kids love to have new things, just because it's new and they love to have many things, even it's useless even if they don't use them....

 

Eh... And youtubers love to have new things... just to make new videos and have better chance to monetize their f*cking channel.

Rockstar know it, more youtubers win money with "GTA V Online videos", more these idiots give a good image of Rockstar.. it's win-win for Rockstar and youtubers, but nor for gamers nor for the future of gaming.

New stuff. Hang around in the city. Get bored. Wait for new update. Repeat.

Basically what everyone else said lol, it peaks the interest of players who have gone AWOL from GTA, like me.

 

Gets the numbers up for a few days, and I'm sure some players end up staying back on GTA for a week or so, if not til the next DLC.

 

It's past for me though, only really check out the new DLC just to feel sort of complete about having done most of what is on offer. And friends usually come back to GTA around update releases, so it's a couple days of invite only fun, followed by 2 months of no GTA.

 

It's what it is.

Makes me laugh people pulling an all nighter waiting for a sh*tty update. Then have to wait 5hrs for it to download!

Heist was probably the only update worth getting excited for, I mean I was excited for about a whole week before the novelty wore off. These types of dlc are just a couple of hrs at best

Merely the speculation people and ESPECIALLY YOUTUBERS do just feeds the hypetrain and like a bad comedown people are in a sea of disappointment.

 

Example

 

A youtuber says their "source" says there's going to be a dragon that drops 10 million cash and rp to the people who shoot it down in the next GTA Update.

 

A moron loses his mind thinking it's going to happen.

 

And then even with more speculation from trailer analyst and hype-men changes from person to person. Youtuber to youtuber.

 

The dragon is now a f*cking unicorn that gives you rp from riding it throughout the city.


Oh and don't forget to like and subscribe for the next GTA money glitch and GTA rumors.

People hype themselves for an update but then say how f*cking sh*tty it is later......it's all the time and it gets annoying.

Because people always expect something big / major in an update, this game has a huge potential and you could add incredible things and with each patch I assume people hope that there's going to be something incredible..

Right, because they'll just spend that $9.99 on a Shark Card and think that they're actually getting something out of the deal
