Annoying little things that Rockstar should scrap.

Recommended Posts

nealmac

Ok, so I'm not on about the big things that we all love to complain about, or glitches. I'm on about the tiresome, irksome, relentless little nuances that are quite frankly pointless, and a complete waste of everyone's time. For example:

 

The separation of money in the bank, and cash in hand:

Is there really a need for this? It's a pain in the arse having to bank your cash every so often. Also, why does the game tell you to go to an ATM when you can do it from your phone anyway?

 

Vehicles getting impounded or blown up:

All this does is create an extra chore for players. Getting your vehicle from the interaction menu is brilliant. It's a quick and wonderful feature. However, having to ring up your mechanic when you want to change your vehicle, or Mors Insurance if you lose it, or God forbid, have to travel from Paleto Bay to the impound yard when the cops catch you. It would be so much easier if we could just get our vehicle back from the interaction menu.

 

The $500 fee for dying

Really? Seriously? It's GTA Online. Not the NHS. Let us die for free. All those $500 dollar fees add up. Dying is part of the game.

 

The precision aiming and driving of NPCs when shifting cargo in a solo lobby:

Ok. I get it. Using a solo lobby for I/E or Sell missions is considered cheating by some, so it's only fair that NPCs should spawn. But they make absolute ribbons of your vehicle in I/E missions in such a short space of time, unless you are a really top notch driver.

 

The amount of time it takes to find other players in mission lobbies, particularly heists:

This one speaks for itself. I understand that it's better to do these missions with friends, and not randomers, but some of us don't have a choice. Waiting half an hour to get a team of 4 together for a heist is unacceptable.

 

The loading screen freezing up:

This problem has been going on for as long as I can remember (I'm on the PC version). It can be fixed using the task manager to suspend/unsuspend the GTA.exe process, but I stream from a PC in another room to my TV, so it's a pain in the tits having to sort it out. It should be fixed, 6 years later. Actually, I just realised that this one falls under the glitch heading, so I probably shouldn't have included it.

 

That's all I can think of for now. I'm sure there are loads more that aren't coming to mind. What are yours?

Call your assistant...

Although much of this thread's topic has already been covered ad nauseum in other threads, I would say to R*:

 

* Don't add things to the game that the player can't interact with in some way. To me, nothing is more frustrating and ruins immersion than that (e.g. phone booths that players can't even step into because they're locked out; let alone use--not to mention elevators and other things that exist in numerous other games, but do bugger all in GTA Online).

* Give players opt-outs of all but the most critical features you introduce into the game.

* Stop using peer-to-peer servers. Invest in, and use, real servers; the money you spend to buy and maintain them will pay for itself in reduced cheating and player frustration.

I forgot about the assistant. However, I still think it's a pretty pointless feature.

YELLOW DOG WITH CONE

- The game being unable to detect when someone is in the middle of a job before trying to join him, but being able to detect if there's no CEO/MC spots left in said lobby.

- Not being an option to retry to connect to another session instead of being sent to Story Mode:

There are so many interiors around the map (used in Story mode), that can/could be accessed using glitches (hence they exist in Online), yet Rockstar can't give us the freedom to roam these locations. I am talking the Humane Research Labs, the FIB and IAA buildings, the police station in Pillbox Hill (heist mission), the bank in Paleto Bay, the story protagonists' houses and so on.

 

To access these interiors doesn't need to make sense, since they don't compromise anything story related, because guess what - Online is not story mode.

 

Rockstar can give us cancerous sci-fi Oppressors that go beyond rational thinking and realism to provide us with ''fun'', but we can't have fun in cool, highly detailed interiors that are simply locked?

People really out here complaining about a $500 fee for dying when you can run a headhunter and get $25000 in 2 minutes. I miss the early days of this game when dying costed $2000 and missions only gave out $9000.

I'm pretty sure you'll only lose money after dying, if you posses more than $2000 in cash.

 

But speaking of the good old ancient days, I kinda miss when everything was at chill prices, jobs felt providing despite the lower payouts and having 100k made you Yusuf Amir.

 

I don't know. It was like playing The Sims, but in a corrupted and crime-ridden city. You were at the bottom of the food chain, only equipped with a pistol and a handful of rounds and you were driving the cheap street car from the intro mission with Lamar. Playing the game felt like having a full-time job of sustaining yourself.

 

Man, I miss those recession days.

Before this gets locked up, I hate the impound feature with a bloody passion, yes, you can use your assistant to get it back, but if you happen to be running your MC and in middle of doing work, you cant switch to CEO and use her to get it back.

 

And its during those times that I always get my sh*t impounded when I am doing work.  Maybe disable impound when you are doing MC/CEO work.

Thought of another one. The ridiculously slow animations of sitting down to use a computer, and indeed to stand up when you’re done. It should be instant. Just cut straight to and from the PC screen. That’s all we need. 99% of the time we’re in a hurry.

Oh. And those silly little mini games you have to ‘solve’ in the sightseer missions. They’re just pointless time wasters.

The big delays in running and stopping, turning etc. Not being allowed to crotch like most games allow. Or even lay down.

This could be chalked up to a limitation somewhere in the system, just my opinion on this.

Thought they do use real servers, p2p could never handle 30 people in 1 lobby. This isn't Warframe that does actually use p2p services.

based on ops post, all of that are non-issues..,

deal with it.., they are not pointless..,

the only things that are issues are the ones thst r* d idnt create intentional..,

which from you mentioned, are only: AI(needs balancing, but in I/E, you need to cargobob, or just run crates), and loading freeze.., which pretty much just correlates to a better running game..,

 

also, I prefer the stealth mechanic over crouching, if that's what you mean..,(seriously who plays games just to crotch people.., jk)

it actually has uses, unlike crouching which does nothing to actually hide your presence..,

 

(though I do not mind if they add different stances, and combat stances, and stealth, and etc stances..,

ie.., different variations of standing positions kneeling, sneaking, or laying, or crawling..,)

 

there really isn't much delay in animation and movements.., but my god on pc.., accidental climbing in a (T)DM..,

least it allows for wall bouncing, but you can't really shoot while moving in animation..,

they should add frantic, combat, or rush animations for when in need to hurry.., i forget.., can you rush turn on a car on pc..,?

I thought by buying the office safe, it reduces the fee's when killed.

 

I'm sure I read that and I know I'm not paying $500 per death, lol.

 

Otherwise, too many niggles to mention, IMHO. But no garage limits would be right up there with more interiors to intetact with as a whole. :)

They should remove the trash servers and the fact that EWO after someone hits you = a kill, they should also make the Lester cooldowns be shorter

If I choose "switch character" in the pause menu MIGHT BE BECAUSE I WANT TO PLAY WITH MY OTHER CHARACTER, YOU KNOW? Why do I have to go through 2 loading screens and a character selection screen when 1 loading time should be enough? What a pain in the arse anytime I switch characters......

Nope, that should stay.

 

Then again, the concept of ewo, K/D and freemode score should be scrapped all together. All three things are pointless and make the game more toxic.

Another thing that should be scrapped are insurance payments for other peoples vehicles. It improved freemode on PC a lot and should be the same on consoles.

Cooldowns on unarmed vehicle delivery. That's beyond stupid.
