No point really.. you enjoy it anyway you see fit and without getting banned. Or if getting banned is your thing, go ahead as well. That's the beauty of it!

 

p.s.But if you don't find any pleasure from it, just move on to other games or anything in life really that would make time pass by a little faster and kinder in the slow march towards the rest of this meaningless existence and eventually inevitable death..

the point of the game is to have fun and get satisfaction from doing whatever activities you enjoy, and also to accomplish goals you set for yourself. That's really all there is to it. There is no end-goal, no end-game, no final accomplishment

"What's the point of it at all?"

 

Good question.

It's such a broken game, I can't tell why I'm still involved in playing it.

A good mix of endearment and sunk cost fallacy, I guess.

Only reason for me is the cars. Though car crashes in game are sorely disappointing but I now get my fill of automotive destruction with Wreckfest. The first game that has actually pulled me away from GTA since i bought a ps4, so much so that i haven't really played gta since last Thursday.

Depends who you ask.

For some people, the point is Grinding To X Hundred Million Legitimately.

For some people, the point is blowing up the aforementioned people and getting the highest K/D possible, not necessarily by fair means.

For most normal people, the point is messing around, having fun with other people, showing off cars, doing missions together.

 

For Rockstar, the point is to sell you as many shark cards as possible.

For me there's no more point. I used to play religiously, day one daily player and legit grinder, but I refuse to do another sell in this game now. I have more cash than I will ever need and there's nothing interesting in the game itself for me: contact missions are played to death, heists are DOA with matchmaking issues, grinding is infuriating, freeroam PvP is pointless. All the things I liked about the game I'm getting from other games: cars from Horizon 4, racing from there and Dirt 2.0, new map from Mafia 3, novelty and story from Control. 5 years of repetitive stuff does that to a game.

The same point of any other game, to have fun. Video games are supposed to be frivolous. People take it too seriously.

It's a more relatable version of GTAV where you choose to make your own character and do whatever you want.

Me personally I have nothing in common with Franklin apart from the chill attitude, don't want to play as an old man. Trevor is the closest thing to me but I wish he had a full set of hair and was more mentally stable and less whiney about the past.

this is a serious question... besides doing random things. is there like a point? who is the winner ? the person with the most money? and even if the game is about money... there aren't enough things worth spending money on. The game started me with like 200,000 I've spent a little over 100,000 and see no point in needing anymore money.

 

what is there to do?

You can win only with a hand gun, be good and tactical. Not become one of the many mindless MKII "PvP'ers"

None, don't waste your time on playing a stressful, uncooperative game like this where you have to constantly grind to buy things. Play another GTA game and actually have fun.

It's really become that over the last 2.5 yrs or so... it began with all the expensive, weaponized vehicles that came with Gunrunning. This online experience feels the most removed from any other GTA game in the franchise. Online is now radically different from what story mode initially was too. Those vehicles were clearly an attempt at making more money but they've ruined freemode completely. If I had my way, I'd remove 85% of them tomorrow. They make normal cars useless in a lot of ways.

To me GTA Online is like Second Life 2. I have a group of friends who regularly play. It's a pretty diverse bunch and we just do whatever. If someone needs in-game money, we help that person. Running just the bunker and nightclub yields plenty of income for very little effort. Fully setting those up takes a while, but the heists exist to give money to people who have none.

Just cruising around in this game never gets old.  Oh and I like repetitive stuff. Doing the Nightclub, I/E and Bunker stuff. Doing Doomsday Heist, even the old ones.

 

This game is perpetually fun to me.

 

Now the Time Trials and RC Time Trials are a breath of fresh air. And I'm just getting into races too. So much fun things to do.
