There are a few parts of the GTA community I don't really like, but it all boils down to people who are too fanatic with a game, to the point of discussing why the rest of the GTA series is cancer and shouldn't exist. This applies to pretty much all games, but Online's is far more noticable.

 

Now, I know, everyone has an opinion and that is fine. But at least give a reason why you didn't like other titles instead of just cussing at everyone who loves those titles.

 

Alright: "GTA V is my favorite game in the series. I love its story and environment. I tried other games like GTA San Andreas, but it doesn't have the same feel and graphics as an HD era game, so I tried GTA IV and didn't enjoy the characters and the city as much."

 

Cancer: "GTA V is the best game ever made, games from the 3D universe are just awful in everything, and only depressed boomer idiots would play GTA IV!!!!!1!!1one!"

You're right! I honestly don't like when they're VERY into it. Just doesn't make any sense. But then again, most of those fans are probably those squeaky, autistic 8 year olds who think that they know better, so I wouldn't be surprised at that. Thanks for the response, by the way.

I really don't like sh*tting on the GTA fanbase, because it used to be so welcoming back then. 

 

Now it's just GTA this is better than that or GTA that is better than this, whole thing's getting ridiculous.

The fanbase can be annoying in some degree, especially the fans of GTA San Andreas and GTA IV. But one thing you can't deny is the fact that the GTA fanbase still isn't as bad as, say, the Sonic the Hedgehog fanbase.

Like anything you get people who give others a bad name, but also a lot helpful and insightful people too. In the entire time I've been on this forum I've only come across a small handful of people who I would describe as annoying, but it's not fair to tar an entire fanbase with the same brush just because of a few rotten eggs.

I  think the GTA fanbase can be one of the best in the gaming community. Although its the numbers that drop in the sense of it become a quantity more than quality type of fan base. Its also one of the most demanding fanbase, for its right reasons and also wrong. Really depends on your perspective, in mine. I think theres only a few people in here that make it great, at least for this website.

Sometimes it can boil down to this. 

 

Usually I feel like everyone sh*ts on the Online players, butI feel like the online section of the forums actually have way nicer people than any of the other sections combined, mostly because they aren't so far up their ass.

I really hate how a lot of pro SP fans who hate on gta online or even don't really like, or are just only into SP feel that the next GTA shouldn't have Online or any type of multiplayer. As someone who LOVES SP, but I'm honestly willing to drop SP DLCs if we could have at least a GTA IV style Online or any type online. Just because you only play SP doesn't mean me and a lot of other people shouldn't be allowed to play with their friends. There's just so many things you can do in Online you can't do in SP. (I remember when we got a 18 wheeler and loaded almost 12 people in it and caused such mayhem while shooting RPGs out of it.)

I can't say I agree. The angst for GTAO (if you can call it that) comes down more to business practices and some people simply don't like that it's a taking stranglehold. I don't remember anyone blasting GTA IV's multiplayer or that it should never been included. Nor did I remember it regarding RDR's multiplayer either. So is it really the idea of having multiplayer that's the problem? I highly doubt it.

 

Maybe there might be some people that might think GTAO should be omitted altogether, but I guess they'd be a minority. While I don't care for GTAO as I haven't touched in 4 years I have no problem if R* want to continue to add it to their games, but don't f*ck over single player in the process.

 

The two should compliment eachother like companions, but the fact is there's a massive disparity where one is receiving all the attention and the other got hung out to dry years ago and I guess it's a concern for some people that it will probably continue with the next GTA. It's no wonder it grinds peoples' gears and I see that more of a problem than people not wanting others to have a good time with their friends.

I know this seems like an absolutely insane statement considering where we are but i don't really like or trust people who's main presence online consists of doing GTA based stuff. If they're at least critical of it then they're on thin ice but it also depends on exactly what the reason is for that

Even if I appreciate a lot GTA Vice City and so understand why many persons love this game too especially with the nostalgia and feeling it gave them at its release time I noticed a certain part of GTA VC fans are frustrated racists who never accepted the most popular GTA features a Black main character and are ready to post any bull$hit to denigrate San Andreas while making GTA VC look more attracting without any fear of becoming ridiculous.

 

Excepting it and the unavoidable intolerant persons here and there I think the GTA fanbase is good and helpful since I subscribed on this site about 9 years ago and don't intend to leave.

The fanbase can’t be tarred with the same brush. If you meet one crazy San Andreas fanboy who despises GTA IV and all the other HD games for example, you’ve met just one. I say that because these two, to me, seem to be the most polarising of the games. I love both and appreciate what each one brings individually. San Andreas was just total wild fun that I can play any day for hours, while GTA IV was much more realistic and down-to-earth with a better story mode. 

 

But really, I don’t think too much about the fanbase since I just take everyone as individuals with individual opinions. I’m just my own opinionated (sub)human who doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. I’m a tolerant individual who’ll challenge others views, but I won’t lynch them for it. Cause really, meet one fan then you’ve met one fan, and if you get one opinion of one fan, you’ve only got one opinion for the most part. Unless of course if we’re talking about SonOfLiberty’s highest paid goon, ThatKyloRenGuy. If I hear just one of their opinions, it’s a safe bet to say I’ve probably heard the other’s too. 😜

Couldn't agree more. It's like I said above. it's unfair to tar an entire fanbase with the same brush just because of a handful of tools. San Andreas fanboys are annoying pricks, but that doesn't mean all San Andreas fans are like that or even most of them. I don't judge someone on what their favourite game is. Then again I've seen some pretty annoying GTA IV fanboys too, GTA V fanboys etc.  

 

Fortunately this forum has more good than bad so it levels out.👍

You are 110% correct my friend, not only with what you said in regards to GTA IV and SA being very polarizing games as well as what you said about fanbases. SonOfLiberty and I also really are two birds of a feather! He is my IDOL alongside my dad, the Minnesota Vikings NFL team, and a thrash metal band called Metallica! :)

Gonna be honest, I have never EVER seen a racist GTA fan. Must be a really small set of GTA fans that are racist because I have actually never encountered one of them, much less a die hard Vice City fan who also happens to be a racist and hates San Andreas.

Yeah, I can't remember seeing anything on this site but I've certainly seen racist sh*t about Black characters from GTA fans. N-word tossed around, "I don't like dumb Black gangbanger characters" and various versions of that sentiment regarding San Andreas and V, seen it plenty of times.

I'll admit I'm not a fan of cj bc of how unexciting a character I find him and his only personality trait is "gangbanger" provided I think alot of 3d era protagonists had that issue, I like Franklin however bc he seems relatable and human. Not liking gangbanger characters bc of their race is pathetic.

Very cancerous, especially the 90s-beyond brats. Bet they haven't started playing GTA until the late 2000s, but act like they know more about GTA than older fan.

Being part of GTAForums community for 8 years, officially, and unofficially all the way back to GTA3Forums, I have to say this place here is the true fanbase stronghold. Home of Grand Theft Auto and anything Rockstar related, second to none. With all the good and the bad and honestly, I personally don't remember the later. Friendships I've made, help I've received and hopefully provided back as well, exchanging thoughts and points about the franchise, or just casually strolling through the incomprehensible amount of content, were my spiritual food over the years. My favorite pastime. My love for the game of Grand Theft Auto would be totally incomplete without GTAForums and you guys. 😉

I only joined last year but I really appreciate the place. I was dying to talk about GTA IV after discovering it and have found loads of interesting discussion and cool people here.

I really think GTA Online is the worst. I can't stand that section and I really don't like the Community as a whole, especially outside this site. The YouTubers and just people that play the game, there's so many toxic people.

 

I have fun discussing the older games more, people just seem more friendly and nostalgic. Playing or talking about GTAO isn't fun for me.
