What do you miss about the Old-Gen of GTA Online?

Only really miss the armored trucks, those were great. I remember the game spawning like 20 of them in a row, sometimes near me, sometimes near others. I made enough money in 15 minutes to buy a Comet

Im on Xbox One and every friend can just join me through Xbox friendslist. On the 360 I actually had to invite someone. No idea why though, my friend has the same issue.

Are you sure you're in invite only not friend only or crew etc.?

 

I know I have always had to invite friends to join an invite only session, if they tried joining through the dash or via the "join friends" on the pause screen it would tell them they could not join the session. Last time I tried this was 27th March so unless it's changed since then...

The fact that owning a Hotknife was something special for Collectors Edition owners but now ANYONE can own one.

My dot being a simple dot and not an icon showing what I'm driving.

 

"Oh look at me. I'm just a simple, oblivious dot with a bounty on my head. Easy picking really. Definitely not driving a tank or anything."

My Snapmatic photos!

Rockstar Social Club finally went and deleted all my XBOX 360 pics from their servers.

Disappointing, yet, not unexpected.

Now, all I get when I click in is the message, NO XBOX 360 PHOTOS MATCHING YOUR SEARCH CRITERIA

Old freemode events.

 

Easily shooting down Hydras in my Lazer (stolen from the base using blind eye, of course)

 

Blowing up people with the Savage because they think it's trash when it's not in my hands.

 

I need more money (because I miss my Savage and Hydra).

 

Hydra's on discount this week so I think I'll be getting that first, then the Savage.

 

EDIT: Oh yeah, when the playerbase mostly sucked and it was really fun owning people.

 

Having randoms jump in your pegasus Insurgent Pick-Up and wreck others.

 

Having other randoms try to blow up your Insurgent, then proceeding to get ran over for their stupidity.

lol, im rank 904 so im quite sure when im in invite only sessions ;p it was this way ever since I changed to Xbox One I think. A friend session does block me from joining though it's only inv only which is bugged somehow.

 

Another bug ever since I switched was not getting Simeone text anymore of which cars to steal/export. Support told me to reinstall the game but cba with all the downloads this game has.

The absence of magical phone ATMs made everyone much more careful with their money...

 

And it made actual ATMs literal minefields.

Phone banking was a day one feature, but a lot of players were unaware.

The invincible traffic cone that remained on the road outside Eclipse Towers for me, even after reinstalling.

Zooming towards my garage at 100mph just to come to a complete halt. Good times.

 

Also Invite only tow truck shenanigans with friends. Genuine lol moments for me.

I miss how passive mode wasn't a cure-all. Trying to be passive could be annoying, but at least trolls and griefers who went passive could still be stopped from getting in a jet.

 

I miss the lack of Deluxos and Oppressors. Those two vehicles have made the game really obnoxious.

 

I miss when recent DLC vehicles cost a couple hundred grand instead of a million plus every single time.

 

I miss armored trucks and special crate drops.

I'm pretty sure the online deposits have been a feature since the beginning

 

OT: Nothing really, everything I 'miss' about Old gen is purely the novelty of playing GTA Online for the first time

Remember when it was thought that the zentorno was overpowered because the back was bulletproof and if you blew it up you had to pay insurance?

nowadays.... PLAYERS HAVE PERSONAL BATTLE TANKS WITH INSURANCE XDDDDDD

5. Invite only was actually invite only(now everyone on friendslist can join)

Invite only is invite onlyFriends only is everyone on friends list can joinAt least on Xbone.

Nope, xb1 here. Always set an invite only. There's an idiot in my group of friends I blocked/muted (but still tolerate due to not wanting to divide mutual friends. And if I'm in an I/O lobby with one of said mutuals and the idiot logs into gta he gets a "your friends are in another session, do you want to join?" Screen and it will inject him into the I/O lobby without an invite.

Crate drops.

 

Also my beer hat. I got one from a crate drop, I seem to have lost it from my inventory altogether. I don't wear it, but it did seem pretty cool to show off to people who didn't know they existed.
