Editorial: Do People Really Care About GTAV Multiplayer?

Some games almost require a multiplayer component in order to be popular these days, but does Grand Theft Auto really need it? Who wants it so bad? (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Considering GTA4 multiplayer was the first online multiplayer I have played. I'm really looking forward to see all the improvements this time around. GTA4 was an alright multiplayer but it felt like it lacked something. Maybe GTA5 can bring back Co-op from San Andreas! That was crazy fun playing with my bro!

I occasionally play GTA 4's multiplayer here and there. Bomb da Base is definitely one of my favorites. I look forward to playing GTA 5's multiplayer and roam around the big city!

I honestly would be disappointed if they didn't have multi in GTA 5. I just adore open world games with multi player. Messing around in a huge city with friends is awesome. Plus the GTA 5 map is gonna be huuuuuge (Red Dead + San Andreas + GTA 4 = GTA 5)

Hell yeah I care about GTA V's multiplayer. Even though we hardly know anything about it, the multiplayer is what gives the game so much replay value. Even the replay value in the singleplayer GTA:SA was amazing, but with online it is just so much better.

Also, Rockstar said that in regards to GTA V's multiplayer, that GTA V is going to try to change Open-World multiplayer the way GTA III changed open-world singleplayer.

I can't wait for it. Rockstar seems to improve by leaps and bounds with each game.

GTA4 was a solid foundation. Fun... but far from perfect.

Red Dead added a whole lot more... co-op hideout attacks, levels, unlocks, better deathmatch and capture the flag-style modes.

Max Payne had perks, loadouts, grinds, clans, unique modes, great maps.

I'm expecting GTAV to build upon all of that.

It will be glorious.

TBH at this stage I really don't, but I'm open minded to it, to see what they can do with it. My biggest complaint with GTAIV and RDR multiplayer was the matchmaking, or lack of it.

It was a struggle to find populated rooms.

The only real things that bugged me about GTA IV's multiplayer is no way to split screen & the lack of support it got. For a first official approach to GTA multiplayer though it is quite fun. I still play from time to time. Been trying so long to get my platinum for GTA IV but missing level 10 overall(I'm at 9 with around $2.9 million out of the $5 million needed to hit 10), beating the times on Bomb-Da-Base & such, then winning a match in every multiplayer game type.

I actually did win one of every multiplayer game type but got hit with the PS3 stats bug. Can see wins in every category but won't pop trophy. Only fix is to go through each one again and win, but the population in GTA IV's online now doesn't seem to allow that. :-/
