How would you feel about a GTA VI without an online component?

Recommended Posts

José_Sócrates

So I've been reading some things here and it seems that everyone expects GTA VI to have an online component like GTA V did. And I'm thinking, do we really need to have an online component for the next GTA, isn't GTA Online enough to satisfy the players needs? Because I feel that GTA V suffered to some extent because of online, and we all know about the single player DLC that never came to be. Plus, I'll be honest here, I think Online sucks and it's not really gta, and although it brings in money, I think I'd be much better if Rockstar used their resources on something else. How would you feel about a single player only GTA VI? As an alternative, what about a GTA VI with an online multiplayer component, but not to the extent of GTA Online, like GTA IV for example? Finally, in the most likely scenario we get GTA VI online, would you rather have the content done by Rockstar or by another studio?

i’d feel a whole lot better because i’d realise the game will be as good as gta4 in terms of content and singleplayer updates. however it is a dream that is not gonna come true. this is not about gta online being enough or not, this is about making money as much as you can. i always said, less effort more money, good for them but not for us. all us gta singleplayer fans need is enough effort for it instead of too much effort for online. but none of this will happen, it’ll keep gta online style

I'd be completely fine with that but I've got a feeling that the majority of gamers have a different opinion

GTA V had only A single heist mission. 

 

So yes, would feel great about it.

I don't like the online at all so it would be great, it would mean more focus and resources to the single player.

Of course it'll never happen, GTAO is their cash cow and will remain their main focus.

Nope, Online is where it's at as far as I'm concerned.

 

My hope is that GTA6 combines its story mode via the online element and we play the story through as our created characters. That would be the dream ticket for me.

Exactly. The only way I wouldn't mourn Vercetti is if I get to play as me:)

That'd be the worst thing ever. And EVERY R* fan will agree with me!

I think that a Grand Theft Auto: VI devoid of an Online component would bleed outside the lines of amazing, in that all of the epic could be contained within and confined to one..., exhilarating..., unit: Grand Theft Auto: VI. 🙂 Perhaps we could see the resurrection of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas-esque cooperative multiplayer or Grand Theft Auto: IV’s multiplayer system, a system all of which would not encompass microtransactions.

 

Which would be okay because perhaps microtransactions in their entirety are that which pulled this miracle from the womb.

 

 

Perhaps within the whole grand scope of the multiplayer system, similar to that of the single player campaign, the key set or fob of your vehicle would be distinguished to that if your friend’s... 😮

Character can be voiced male/female.

Neutral; Do not care. 

 

I am a Story player who likes to experience well-developed worlds inhabited by memorable and interesting characters. After I finish the game and have enough of it, I mostly move on and only come back from time to time to retaste the world's atmosphere. The repetitive nature of multiplayer games do not excite me and the only interesting thing is story-driven cooperative missions, though they're usually short and not well-written.

Technology has moved on, and there is nothing to stop various voice actors recording the player character's lines (so you could choose which voice you want)

 

I think that it could be done. I would certainly like at any rate the player created character to be the protagonist, because it is more immersive and personal a game when you create your own.

 

But I would expect at some point the story element of the game to be integrated into an always online experience. If not GTA6, then certainly the next one.

I would be fine with it if GTA VI didn't have an online component, but we all know it's going to be there and its more nightmarishly capitalistic than what GTA V online is, which is already pretty bad

 

I think it'd be best to have something that splits the difference between GTA IV's multiplayer and GTA Online; its nice to have a customizable character and cars that are yours with modifications, but it also sucks to have to grind for several real life days to get them. It's a game, and I think this is the kind of game where you do want to be having fun. freemode events are a good way to spice up freeroam, but they're kind of ruined by how messed up it's possible to spec out your character

it would be awesome. maybe we would get new GTA games quicker too without them spending so much time working on new stuff for GTA Online. for me its the worst thing that happened to this series.

That's the worst idea ever. You can create your own character in GTAO and that's how far it's gonna go when it comes to customizing your gaming experience. Besides it can't be done. Either your character would be mute like Claude, or they would have pre-recorded dialog which completely defeats the purpose if you want to role play as you. Some ideas posted on these forums are just f*cking awful but this is on a whole new level of bad

It was just a suggested possibility fella, no need to bend me over and f*ck me up the arse for it. Personally, I wouldn't give a toss if the character was mute <shrug>

 

For what it's worth, I feel the same as you every time I see pleading for offline only instalments and games set in the nineteen-f*cking-eighties.

While I hate the multiplayer aspect of it I think I prefer GTA with an online component, honestly. I generally played in solo public lobbies and just treated online as a constantly updated and expanding version of the old school game's post-story grind. Unfortunately, that requires a glitch they seem to have patched out of RDO so I imagine the next version of GTA Online will do the same.

 

If only Rockstar were more tolerant of solo/friendly playstyles I think their online components could be much better. It'd be as simple as making all content available in solo/invite only sessions.

See, the problem is that R* don't think like the gamers do. We all hate On-line and think it's stupid, but it will probably be the only part of the next GTA, if there ever will be one.

I wasn't trying to offend you. I just very strongly disagree that having a blank slate protagonist is a good idea 

 

 Edit: but we probably won't get along anyway since I'm one of those hoping for a period setting

What would be great is if rockstar made a singleplayer development team and an online one. Things like cars or weapons should be jointly developed but the content like missions should be different. Current GTA Online is kinda meh and no story DLC is a real bummer considering Rockstar have made some good DLC in the past which was worth it.

 

Especially if they are not held back by current gen, they would be able to make or produce something great with what they have. 

 

Online gives you an opportunity to mess about with other players and friends. When i played GTA 4 online, i thought that stuff was amazing af. I could jump into a car and do drivebys, firefights on foot, escaping police, stealing random cars and much much more and it had a very simple online. The majority of people when they finish a single player game tend to not touch it unless they are : 1. A speedrunner 2. Just plays singleplayer games 3. Don't have access to internet.

I know when i 100% GTA V and RDR2, i didn't touch the singleplayer at all again. I've already played through and experienced what i needed to and i had fun. Online just adds that sort of randomness to me, the actions of other players aren't simply robotic or NPClike, they can't be predicted 100% of the time. Every different player can lead to a different experience and thats what makes the online so fun really.

Next one could have automatic pitch detection from voice test :)

Thank you for your response. Did the plot/story influence your free roam? As there was no freaking online and monkey mask to further adhere to your way of enjoying the game, didn't you act according to the main character principles?
