January 16 update was just drop zone and Sultan and Banshee could be Bennified. My Sultan lost it's mods due to the bug they had. I don't think I ever drove it after that :(

Apart from the batmobile, we didn't get one car.

Ummm...

Retinue, Rapid GT Classic, Cyclone and XA-21? Not a lot, I agree, but they are really quality vehicles.

Just cuz there were initial bugs, doesn't mean that the content itself was really quality. If we'd go by this logic, I'd downvote the Heists since the Fleeca Job bugged on me and my friend and I couldn't get the Kuruma, but in reality, it's small thing that was fixed later... Edited by MGgames100

Oh I didn't downvote it because of the initial bug, I downvoted because it had 1 adversary mode and 2 (existing) cars only.

One more up-vote to The Heists update, two more down-votes for Lowriders:Custom Classics, same reasons I've stated before.

I'm actually on the fence between The Heists update and I'm not a Hipster update, Heists can be easily compared to the updates we got during 2016-2018, but it was released on 2015... I'm not a hipster was a special one because of the cool looking cars and clothes we got, even that the update was very simple and basic.

 

Lowriders: Custom Classics is just a bunch of cars that were locked for dripfeed, IF it included some more Lamar missions, yes I would probably let it pass, but there was nothing in it aside from a scheduled dripfeed.

 

Edit: Also, this awesomeness right here

Cunning Stunts is easily one of my top 5 favorite updates, even if nowadays all we get unfortunately is just more stunt races and not regular street races from R* anymore.

 

I only voted down Holiday Gifts because it didn't bring new vehicles. Doesn't mean it was a bad update, but then again it gave us Christmas clothing which we could only use during Christmas time anyway. WTF?

Ima be a one man army getting rid of that low riders sh*t

The Original Lowriders DLC is one of the good DLCs in my opinion, it brought Lamar missions which are fun if you don't play them with randumbs, and the cool vehicles and mods.

And to be fair to others, perhaps try and vary your voting patterns StormerBoy. No offence, and we've had plenty of good vibes and you're entitled to do what you want, but focusing on a single item is a bit harsh.

Oh .. well I repeated my votes from yesterday but in my opinion The Heists update tops everything else in the game so for it to beat Import/Export is a priority to me, and for my down-votes, I want to get rid of small updates and then get to the big ones.

 

Import/Export was an awesome update but it's still following the same "deliver something from A to B" concept brought in by Finance and Felony, just a bit glorified with the sourcing/exporting missions being a bit fun, and the cars were cool as well.

 

it is interesting that Gunrunning checked out too early, maybe things would've been different if it wasn't for that research garbage.

Finance & Felony was a roaring start to the Summer and overall just a great time in this game. The content was a progression to the business aspect but in a new and more advanced way than what we had come to expect. Missions took place all over the map and regardless of whether you liked the warrior aspect or the smooth cruiser vibe in GTA, this update had something for everyone. So much hype at the time and it paid off in spades, still does actually. Watch the trailer and think of just how much gameplay you got from the various items in the video.




Smuggler's Run

 


A year ago we were in the same holding pattern of still getting somewhat of a half-decent dripfeed but not really getting the full monte of a real update yet. Import/Export was history by May '17 and the weight of four years of the same GTA map was taking it's toll. Enter Gunrunning. First voted out of this game yet it sent Rockstar's fortunes soaring as it's first major update of the year. This game was booming with players, chaos, sale missions, the tedium of research and working the various guns/ammo types into the regular routine. The militarization, the microtransactions, the businesses and the paywalls. It was all here, but it was active and with all that collective energy brewing there was just so much fun in the clusterf*ck of it all.


Smuggler's Run took the baton but to mixed results. The XA-21 was great, the Hunter was too. Insert particular car or aircraft of choice. Countermeasures, Hangars, making LSIA useful again and taking snapshots at Zancudo without getting riddled with bullets is priceless. There's the idea of GTA being a do anything game and all the random planes and helis coming into the game was a remarkable addition even if you're not a helisexual. But Smugglers Run presided over a huge drop in activity and morale for the game. The new product had it's fans, but week after week after week after week the dripfeed began to take it's toll. Friends began to move to other games, while people here changed from the summer optimism of "we'll get indefinite updates" to endless speculation on whether we were in the last days of DLC. All the new aircraft was nice but without a Hangar paywall to customize them and the mod shop optioned on too, you'd be out of luck. Then there's the actual price of the individual upgrades, the fact you have to repurchase them if you switch out different equipment, and the inconvenience of aircrafts taking the place of personal vehicles when you want to have both at the same time.


The prices remained in the millions per vehicle and I'm not sure what was worse between the $6 Million dollar pricetag of the Lazer or the fact that we were pushing December (I'm talking after Thanksgiving) by the time it dropped. Post-Gunrunning people clamored for updates to clothing and quality of life updates with more down to earth missions. Instead we got content that was more limited in appeal than the previous DLC and yet further weaponized through bombs and increased dogfighting. The newswire showcased the Hunter in August and by the time it dropped in late November it felt like mercy for a dead horse. Doomsday, the rumored update to end all updates, dropped mere weeks later and made new headlines for Rockstar. Active player numbers soared, profits rose, and optimism was restored as new aircraft, new heists, facilities, vehicles and more content dropped to freshen up game. A stark improvement from the decline of Fall '17. How many players do you remember saying they hadn't played the game in months or weeks before Doomsday? How many had moved on only to be brought back at the stroke of midnight? Smuggler's Run was a decent attempt, but it's luster had long ran out by the time it's dripfeed came to a close.

Voted for the wrong one yesterday, lol. But it's the crates DLC that'll see my wrath here. Major change.
Heists gave me so much. Plus I quite like my Sultan RS, lol.
Have to agree with The-Ghost here Jenkiii. I just got more from the heists DLC than anything in this, or most any videogame. Likewise, the decision to make things 'public only' was a huge change that brought lots of negative to my gaming experience, and many other more traditional GTA players. I dislike it strongly that any DLC before it was simply better just by not having that option forced.
Tale care guys. :)

I don't understand why you quoted and criticised without reading the post properly?

 

I wasn't criticising The-Ghost, but agreeing to his criticism of Stormerboy for dumping on Lowriders ;) . Have fun!

 

EDIT EDIT

People can vote for whatever they want, it's just a game, but I've noticed over the years that 'targeting' a particular item isn't the best way of 'playing' the game. It catches the eye and can result in reverse targeting of your own choices. Being smart and varying your votes is the best way to 'win' the game. Remember that -2 against hurts much more than +1 in favour.

I was responding to this mainly.

It suggest that you want people to mix their vote up. I didn't, nor have many.

The Original Lowriders DLC is one of the good DLCs in my opinion, it brought Lamar missions which are fun if you don't play them with randumbs, and the cool vehicles and mods.

 

Whereas The Ghost here just did like you normally do, and highlighted what he liked from the DLC in hope others see more positives than any negatives that may have come from a DLC for each of us.

 

Anyway, my bad if I misread. Just I rarely vote for things for variety, more because I like/dislike, unless my choices are eliminated, then I'll readjust my points, lol. Just my thoughts, no biggie.

I'm still for IE because this thing brings 400k in half an hour time if you sell in a friendly environment and source with a Bob. My next favorite is Execs thanks to Schafter V12, one of the best cars ever added to the game. Worst updates for me? Cunning stunts, SASSS, Lowriders and Flight school.

Easily, my favourite post in this thread.

 

 

It speaks to both my thoughts about "Finance and Felony" as well as "Smuggler's Run" with amazing detail.

 

The reveal of FAFF's trailer was so bombastic to me that it still chills me to the core every time I replay it and "Speedline Miracle Masterpiece" is part of my regular listening rotation because of that same trailer. With FAFF for putting an end to the most egregious beginning-of-the-year draught to me, Bikers as a personal love letter, and I/E as the perfect year closer, 2016 was an amazing year of updates.

 

Smuggler's Run was fine in itself, but the dreadful dripfeeding (even though I am one of those people that kind of stands it and sees its reason to be), the more dubious decision to deliver its crown jewel at the near end and to resell an old vehicle at way above the price it has any right to have permanently ruined an otherwise good update to me.

Heists...

 

The peak of Online as it stands and the last true demonstration of Rockstar Games' usual excellence when it comes to game design, as far as GTA V is concerned. It was a product delivered out of promise, obligation and honour towards the people that bought the game and dove into the multiplayer mode's rocky initial days under the premise of repeating the action-packed, adrenaline rush of the heists in Story Mode but with friends and their own characters. Forever elusive for a long year and a half, out of the perfectionist attitude that the developers have for their own creations. It was scrapped entirely due to its own creator's dissatisfaction and desire to deliver the best experience possible, as was promised before.
Perfect soundtrack, unforgettable moments, truly challenging without the cheapness that is sort of expected from later updates, this one had it all. And if you came out as a true master of the art of heisting, you would have something to show for it in the form of the rare Elite shirts. I have mine, and the moment they were awarded to me stands as one of my most fond memories with this game. Plus, I'm sure I must have repeated the entirety of Pacific Standard upwards of a hundred and fifty times as it was my initial way to grind for money.
"I know you've been complaining, but you weren't ready..."

 

Cunning Stunts... Not much to say about this. It kickstarted an awful trend that rarely has impressed me and is another display of immersion-ruining gameplay. It's a mixed bag of fun and infuriating situations, as well as misclassified and overpriced vehicles (Lynx...). It is the black sheep of my first year of playing Online and its spawn are just as terrible.

It looks like there's going to be quite a lot disagreement in this thread about the best/worst additions to GTA online. The question I'm asking myself is how much did that update mean to me at the time, and how much does that update mean to me right now? I can't quite decide on the best answer.

 

One thing's for sure, GTA online is a different beast to the game it was three-four years ago. Rockstar have added so much content and 'improved' so many aspects, but it's a different experience for me now. Last night I played some Survivals with an online buddy and mistakenly entered freemode in a leisurely manner and decided to run some Sightseer in a standard car, driving around the map for the pleasure of it, followed by driving an unarmoured car to 'S' Simeon at the docks! What was I thinking? I got my ass absolutely whooped LOL for being so casual, dumb and naive. You can't do THAT in GTA online, and just wander round the map and drive places for FUN! It's mayhem, WTF has Rockstar done to our game :) ?

Wow, Volganor thanks so much for the kind words! I've had a lot of respect for your perspective thru your posts and your photography and its pretty cool to see such a message from you today. I echo the same thoughts on Heists (top pick) and Cunning Stunts too actually. Both fun when new, but one with lasting value and the other a story of diminishing returns.

 

I was weary of elaborating to the degree I did but I'm glad it resonated. There's so much content we've received and it's quite interesting how it worked out looking back at it all.

Ima be a one man army getting rid of that low riders sh*t

The Original Lowriders DLC is one of the good DLCs in my opinion, it brought Lamar missions which are fun if you don't play them with randumbs, and the cool vehicles and mods. Sorry I can't agree. I can't stand that whole Lamar character theme. I've never understood the interest in cars bouncing up and down like on a children's TV show. As for the missions, all I know is that if I'm too quick on the phone, I restart those bustards instead of mugging some griefer.

And to be fair to others, perhaps try and vary your voting patterns StormerBoy. No offence, and we've had plenty of good vibes and you're entitled to do what you want, but focusing on a single item is a bit harsh.

Hmmm, I'm tempted to oblige, but I thought the object of the game was to stick with your guns, not factor in complexities. Afterall, one of my favourites (Gunrunning) just got raped in a similar way. 🙂 Edited by StormerBoy

Yeah, I can already see me and wizooord not being good friends after the down-votes for heists lol

I'm joking, it's an opinion after all, the game is fun.

 

It's interesting to see other player's take on all these updates that we got, The Heists was a great update in my opinion due to the fact that it's an updated that added fun gameplay to the game, the setups, the finales, the challenges, the struggle of trying not to die while doing the criminal mastermind challenge was a struggle but it was still fun and rewarding, just an awesome update in general.

 

but then again when I think about it, I won't be able to decided which one is the ultimate best, each update had it's own moment, the first days of Gunrunning were chaotic and crazy, which was fun, I drove my MOC with a friend in the back for the first time only to meet two players in an APC and that started an intense war, but I suppose what made the others down-vote it too much was the research, and I do agree on that feature being ridiculous.

 

Each update has it's own moments, Import/Export was special because it was fully leaked before it came out, we knew everything coming, we just needed pictures of the vehicles, it was a good update in terms of content and the way the business worked was improved.

 

Every update is a good update to a certain point, Doomsday Heist is one of the awesome updates but the Orbital cannon can easily change your entire opinion about it, even SSASS is now getting the backlash of the handling flags even though it brought some good quality vehicles.

Lowriders 4 life. Actual OG update that haven't hurt.

Cunning Stunts, I'm not against hot wheels stuf, but there plenty of games where people can play this crazy stuff away from cruel LS. Jumping off a building or from construction site is one thing, and ride in tubes at the sky is other so... so... lame thing:). Never ever thought this will be a GTA thing. Minus two.

I agree that Heists were absolutely great in terms of gameplay and overall quality. It was the first big update for Online, if I recall correctly and without Heists this game would have benn different today. Thanks to Heists a lot us got first serious kick-start money from Criminal mastermind, improved our PvE skills and cooperation and even more people got rich thanks to Pacific Standard with custom vehicles. I remember doing Pac Stand with 811s using highway route, glitching out cops on the way back was even more thrilling experience (it was possible back then to evade stars even while in the city using a simple trick). Yes, that was a colossal update back in the time, only Doomsday introduced more vehicles. Simpler times back then.

Valentine Massacre +1. Added one of my favorite cars to date, the tommy gun, and a bunch of nice prohibition era clothing.

(+1)I/E was just a phenomenal update and I'm really hoping they expand on it

(-2)Smugglers Run should have been a great update based on content alone but they really blew it with huge paywalls, laughable payouts, and the worst dripfeed they have ever concocted. They allowed us to use most of the aircraft via supply runs but they were still not released. Especially with the 2 month wait for the Hunter, it felt even lower than all the research in Gunrunning because they essentially dangled carrots on sticks and laughed at us

While the business aspect of it was utterly terrible, Smuggler's Run seemed like it was pretty much made for me. I thoroughly enjoyed almost every air vehicle in it, whether it be from the golden age of aviation, the new breed of thoroughbred fighters or just the fun toys like the Bombushka's cargo bay and Alpha-Z1.


IIRC, Lowriders 2: Electric Boogaloo was the update that introduced the dripfeed. Even the vehicles that weren't dripfed were (IMO) immensely disappointing. The whole thing just screams 'filler update'.
