Long time player's outdated habits

Recommended Posts

Oh boy, well here's my list.

I still do Contact Missions, they never get old.

I still do Gang Attacks, lots of fun.

I still do Survivals because they're fun.

I still abuse 1v1s for Rhinos and such just because.

I use the shower.

I buy ammo from Ammunation because it's nice.

I still go the Strip Club.

I still go home before I sign off.

I still rob stores.

I still mug people in jets just so they lose the one thing that mattered to them.

I still watch the TV, the satire is still generally funny.

And I love buying a Merryweather Helicopter Pickup service, and still get pissed off when my dickbag friend shoots the lovely pilot in his temple.

 

 

I'm shocked to discover I'm far from the only one doing this stuff! This week is pre-dlc week for me only doing things from before beach bum, and driving original cars whilst wearing original styles!

I generally do this because I played tons of LG when my PS+ wasn't up. Besides they're great and fun stuff to do.

 

Oh yeah, forgot. I still use Airstrikes :p

Squeakers probably think air strikes are a mod!

Survivals- I still do survivals even though nobody does them anymore, I'll get the very rare random invite from someone like once a month, and best believe I join. My survival skills have always been good, but going 1 against 60 was a regular thing for me, which made me one of the best heist teammates you could have. Free roam war days are over though.

 

Getaway trips- Sometimes I say f*ck Los Santos, hop in the Osiris, Helicopter, or Blazer Aqua, and getaway to Paleto Bay, my yacht, or the ocean. Then when I settle in Paleto Bay, Grapseed, or Sandy Shores, I rely only on the things available to that part of the map, so if something else is going down in Los Santos, it'll have to wait until I'm back.

 

Roleplaying- Not like you think, not like the children roleplay, but character roleplay. Mostly for recording videos, but I turn myself into an out of town mobster, a serial killer, vigilante, farmer etc. Really depends on where I am.

 

 

And uh, finally dressing up. No one dresses up any more. They either wear the same pair of pants, mask, shirt, or outfit all of the time, but I put on some new threads every time I drive into a new town or place on the map, sometimes to fit the area. If it's sandy shores, I dress Southern, if it's Paleto Bay, I dress casual, and if it's Los Santos I dress elegant, designer, or street.

Standing on top of objects in passive to go AFK because you used to be vulnerable to cars in passive.

 

I still drive over people in passive, countless times. They think everything phases through them. Only to go AFK and come back to find out their beloved shtty K/D ratio dropped.

 

 

do u jump out of car before hitting them? I tried many times but to no avail

Looking for someone to befriend without sending any kind of message. That works before in the PS3 when Online was just released, but after the Heist Update with the Insurget and Kuruma, almost all the players is trying to kill me while satisfying their bloodlust.

Very true! Back when we had to do a survival to get an RPG, and the forum was full of questions like "which gang attack gives the sniper?"

And the people driving them.

 

I know I shouldn't because it's not logical, but I have to accept that I am prejudiced against Zentorno drivers. I wouldn't employ them and I certainly wouldn't date them. I may even vote for a wall to be built to seperate them from the rest of us. :D

.

OT. I still steal Ocelot F620s' for Simeon if they come up

I still have this tendency to max out my character's Mental State every time I play online.

 

I guess it looks good with all my player stats maxed out as well... 🙄

I still play contact missions. I managed to fail one or two last night because of not using my Kuruma in the longest time :p:p

I still watch TV now and again.

I still hope that I can one day get the fill a Titan full of players achievement.

Gang attacks.

 

I miss the days of getting an invite for a sea race or a parachuting job.

I remember at one stage, maxing out one's Mental State was an absolute necessity in every single free roam session :D:D

 

And yes, 100% agreed on the stats all being maxed out. I worked hard on that lung capacity stat in the Alamo Sea :p:p

My outdated habit is enjoying PvE. R* doesn't seem to like that demographic these days, so it feels pretty outdated.

I hear you, exactly how I feel. In fact gaming in general is heading that way I feel

Fortunately, there are still some games that remember how to be Single Player friendly. If there is one thing I can thank R* for, it's making me expand my gaming horizons beyond triple A developers.

Very true, I have been surprised to enjoy fantasy games like the witcher and Skyrim, and Sci-fi like Mass Effect, or my current favourite Horizon Zero Dawn which dies both!

I recently started a new character from scratch, and got into a gunfight with somebody of a similar level. They killed me and then took off in their car, I got in mine to chase and was shocked to discover that all of my tires had been shot out and I had been thoroughly outplayed! Skidding slowly through traffic on four naked rims, I was taken back to my early days on the streets, back before everybody had bulletproof tires and this was a common thing to deal with. I had completely forgotten about it over the years, spent so long with bulletproofs on every vehicle (and 99% of my opponent's) that I wouldn't even have thought to shoot his tires out had the situation been reversed.

THIS! With a vengeance. If I'm in a race and I see a Zentorno, I just know that there's a preteen little c*nt driving it, purely for ramming in to everyone.

It's also one of the few cheap cars that still stands a chance in races!

Not many people still use the Carbonizarre, despite it's bulletproof glitch - it makes an interesting Kuruma alternative!

You mean the one with snakeskin or whatever it is on the sides?

Nope, it's a modern black boot with white soles and orange detail, I'll try to find a picture of it.

 

The snakeskin one is ridiculous.

I'm nearing to level 500 with a single character I made on PS3 - no bans or bad sport. Still playing survivals, it is still fun.

 

I still wander highways and freeways with crew-colored cars, and 130 mph limit still sucks

Yeah I forgot to add that it's a black tank top for my male character, far as I'm aware females don't have full-length tank tops in the game, at least not 2013 original ones. Edited by Pedinhuh
