I more or less took the summer off from GTAO; stopped playing a day or two after GR dropped and came back when I saw an ad for SR on Facebook. It isn't my first extended break but in the past, once I came back I came back hard and dove in deep for a long time. This time though... something isn't the same. Years-old issues I used to overlook are suddenly annoying. Everything seems futile and bleak, like I'm living in the aftermath of a game that came close to greatness but sold its soul. The spirit has fled yet the husk shambles on...

 

Maybe its just in my head.

 

At any rate, I don't think I'm done with the game but I'm ready hopeful that somebody else will take the concept and do a more player-friendly job of it.

Looking at my character's pitiful bank balance and then checking how much cash she requires to complete her shopping list is a tad disheartening. I've been struggling to make cash for months.

The only reason I would say kind of is because:

  • They take legit money from players suddenly, from shark cards of all things. How can this game/Rockstar ever be trusted? http://gtaforums.com/topic/894959-so-rockstar-just-took-pretty-much-all-of-my-money/page-69
  • They drip feed stuff and let youtubers play around with it with zero repercussions (it's clearly obvious who these people are in the videos) but they leave them alone and go after legit people in my first point above w/ 1000s of hours
  • They never update the clothing for female characters or the hair. There's mods that do this so better now (one I contributed to). I mean stockings in game you can't wear skirts over... WTF idiot at rstar is working on this?
  • Every update is a copy/paste and you can't play it invite/crew only.
  • No mission editor to play solo or with friends.
  • Value of Shark Cards is awful
  • Rockstar fa**ot and those 2 other kids make things look even more unprofessional
  • Customer service is the worst I've experienced

All that stuff is what makes me lose interest the most.

Nope, still going strong for me. Never gets boring for me. If it does a little, I just mix up a load of jobs and problem solved :p

Normally I end up just coming online, buying a new car and modifying it, then driving to see if there's any new clothes or guns and then going offline.

 

The game has just become stale for me, there's nothing entertaining because to get most things you just have to grind and grind constantly.

 

I wish there was a single player DLC or that you could atleast buy things in single player like you used to be able too.

It's not that I'm losing interest in the game, it's as if the game is losing interest in me (if you consider what's been changing). All the things that allow solo players to enjoy the game are being pushed away as the direction of the game changes. You can't have fun in this game by yourself the same way you could 2 years ago, at least not without sh*ttons of money and a lust for military level PvP to match.

Very well-said. That's exactly how I feel.

 

I think I lost interest because of three things:

1. Getting killed repeatedly. It's kinda fun and funny if people do a random driveby, but I had too many people who would kill me, circle around, wait for me to respawn, and then keep coming after me until I quit the session.

2. Too much focus on destroying other people's cars and crates. I think it's too difficult to make real money in the game without grinding because the game encourages people to go after cars and crates, etc. I don't blame the people who do it. I blame the game for alerting the entire session and putting a great big red marker on the CEOs.

3. Most importantly: I don't have any friends who play, and I don't have anybody I've met online who plays regularly. I belong to a crew or two, but it's just not the same. I'd probably enjoy GTAO a lot more if I could hang out with people. I'd feel a lot less vulnerable to PK for one thing.

It's not the platform, but the people who you fight against, and the people who you cooperate with.

GTA online is the same as ever - stuck in Blaine County and in the same old city of Los Santos - you could get tired of that in a couple of weeks without the people who make it great or downright rotten at the same time. So no, I don't get tired of GTA online because it's no better anywhere else - the people are just as asshole-ish elsewhere, and I don't have any friends or crews to play with on other online platforms either.

 

If you're finding the game stale or boring it's because you don't have the right collaborative-antagonistic vibe going on.

I agree. I can tolerate the killing as long as I actually get a chance to fight back, if they're using normal weapons and not spamming me with enough explosives to destroy numerous tanks I actually enjoy the engagement and try to have fun.

 

You nailed it with the CEO/MC stuff. Nothing else annoys me about it more than the fact that my 16 crates, my tiny small warehouse stock, is put on the map for everyone to be aware of, even if they're as far away as they can be. I made a post in another thread about how I think the CEO blips should work, it's a lot more balanced for both the seller and attacker and is also more engaging for other players as well.

 

More and more of my friends are moving to different games and some have stopped playing entirely. I'm lucky to get a crew of 4 on once or twice a week.

It's relative. I lost the huge interest in it that I used to have a long time ago. I played it an insane amount, and to top it off they kind of ruined it by then by messing around my favourite vehicles.

 

Then I had a big break, and regained some interest again. Not in grinding and building up money (though that's a necessary evil at times), but just in goofing around and going on rampages. There's a certain timelessness to that.

 

Now I'm like that, but with a boost thanks to the upcoming Hunter, flares, that penguin/Nazi plane, other aircraft, etc.

 

So, I still play a little for fun. Not bad for a 4 year old game.

 

Disclaimer: I'm not saying certain things don't need adding (give Quinn clothes already Rockstar, and stop this messing about of PC players). It's just the overall personal vibe I have.

I hate the DLC content personally . . . I still play because I like the game inherently.

 

I thought online initially was going to be a giant MMO- "living breathing world" where you could be who you wanted to be. I don't feel like much of an individual.

 

When it comes to games like this, I have a urge to set my self away from the others, to turn heads with my "Character" and my playstyle.

 

For me, the delivery of this is 50/50.

 

The car culture is annoying. Needs more domestic models. Individualization for me trumps everything in a video game. The cars you drive, the clothing you wear, the different types of content, that's what I care about, especially in an MMO setting. The clothesssssss . . . the customization of your character . . . ughhhhhh >:(

 

Like the Rapid GT, stuff like that I love, but then the constant simular updates like cunning stunts and the free roam updates, annoys me, because theres many a thing they could add to improve the quality of life besides the free roam updates.

 

I'm not quite sure if I'm making sense. Hipsters and high life, stuff like that is what I like... constant military stuff, the "niche" stuff without much room for other segments of a big, diverse tent of players, not too too much.


I would welcome a competitor. I would love a game where you could be whoever you wanted to be, welcomes the diversity of its players, etc.

 

 

 

 

Let's hope a valid alternative comes out soon... This is all aimed at creating their profit, even that damn dripfeeding they're doing...

Personally I love the Game, but the dlc direction could use more variety. If they dropped a Midnight Club Style Update, and/or a Map Expansion, I would be refreshed. LS is a great map, but exploring a new map with a bunch of new vehicles is what it would take to make gta my primary game again.

And... add some PvP games like: Playing pool with your friend in Tequila-la for an example, or darts. And why not to add gambling to the game? Like play some poker in a table with friends, or blackjack, What about play some bowling with your friend! (it makes sense if a LC Map Expansion really being possible to exist) I Miss all these kind of features that we had in past Grand Theft Auto titles... x.x

Tbh, GTA Online to me is my escape from life and work. I go on once every day or two and spend a few hours just doing what makes me happy (which is mainly races)

 

I don't religiously grind like I once used to - I have everything I want to purchase, I've played the missions I wanted to play. My character is slowly easing into retirement from the rat race. As soon as she gets that Gold Securoserv trophy, I think I'll call it game over.

 

But that's not to say I'll stop playing entirely. I'll go on every so often once a new vehicle is added, besides, with titch on the way, it's gonna be a lot more difficult to play soon haha.

 

Fwiw, GTA Online is always gonna be one of my favourite games.

Stealing back all of the money Rockstar ever took from me has renewed my interest in online somewhat

Yes, my interest is dwindling more and more every day. I'll often go more than a week at a time without even loading up the game. That was definitely never the case back in the "old days" when I literally could not wait to get home, load up the game, and often play for several hours at a time.

 

Much depends on who's online and what's going on, but yes, the departure (and continued departure) from realism; everyone being too wrapped up in grinding or griefing; and just the overall feel and flow of things have put something of an end to my passionate interest in the game. Like I've said before, I don't hate the game, but I don't like the current direction and it scares me to think just how far they will actually go before it is all said and done.

 

It's all just very meh; I can still load it up at times and have fun with my friends, but much like you, I'll often try to find some sort of job, attempt to play it, and then find myself completely frustrated when half the lobby drops out or it turns into a troll fest. Afterwards, I just close the application and load a different game or just call it a day from a gaming standpoint.

Is this The Guy?

I'm completely burnt out really. I don't know if it's because of the last few updates or because I just been playing for so long.

I jump on every now and then to try a new vehicle and will probably jump on to give the Hunter a few spins but don't see myself playing much at all after that.

I am getting there. Nothing to do and they took all my money. I just log in to drive to the bunker. If if supplies are gone then I sell and log off.

 

The game has become a glorified smartphone game that wants their players to use real money. Sound familiar? That is a lot of mobile games.

-Deathmatches are full of tryhards

 

-Same survivals and same contact missions

 

-More and more military bullsh*t

 

To be honest, Rockstar kind of destroyed everything i enjoyed doing in this game and i find myself playing a lot less nowadays.

We've seen it with other long-time members of the community.

 

Gunrunning killed off CarmiboHanky for awhile. Smuggler's Run - other old timers are chiming in that the horse has left the barn.

 

And you know when GiantsGiants is in on it - it's REALLY bad. There is an undeniable negativity towards GTA:O which I've never seen at this level.

 

But don't worry, the fanbois will tell you, 'that's you opinion man.'

 

Alas, this classic comes out to highlight the tone deafness going on:

I honestly still play just to do the daily objectives glitch, it's a way to make money without the grinding. The only part that sucks is just having to restart the game till you get easy objectives.

The only reason I still play is because of my magnificent 120+ car collection. Take that away and this game has nothing going for it in any way shape or form, SP and Online.

Hmmm... I am surprised about all the people disliking the game.... Why are you playing it then?

 

I still like the game and nearly every day I play about 1 hour - sometimes a bit more. Yes, that is not that much, but it is that what real life allowes.

Often I play with friends in open lobbies. We all are in steady need of GTA$, so we did many missions, CEO/VIP and business things. But we also have the time to meet with our cars at LS Customs.

Yes we face those people who only run around killing people, yes there are those which only want to destroy others. But on the other hand we often meet other players joining us to play the game in an harmonic (not meaning only peaceful) way.

And yes, in case we are facing 20 trolls we simply change the session.

 

The game is what the player is making it.

I think it would be boring for me if I had hundreds of millions GTA$. Then there is no goal, no objective, nothing to reach and play for.

I still enjoy it to an extent, despite its move into sci-fi vehicles. But I am done with Shark Cards, I am not supporting the game/Rockstar anymore as I dislike this move to Sci Fi. The game lobbies actually feel like they are full of modders now. (Oppressor/Explosive sniper)
