"I Don't Want To Play GTA Online" Said Nobody Ever

CCC Says: "After watching Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto Online reveal video today, I found myself asking two questions: What exactly is GTA Online? And (after a little research), who the hell wouldn’t want to play this game?" (Grand Theft Auto Online, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

"What is Grand Theft Auto Online?

To put it simply, it is a different game. In an interview with CVG, the president of Rockstar North, Leslie Benzies, revealed a lot more information about the game: “[GTA Online is] a different entity, a separate thing, and it'll grow on its own. It'll be GTA Online; it's not part of GTA V. Obviously it's set in the GTA V engine, but it's going to grow and evolve into its own thing.” "

Hell. Yes.

This is one hell of a MP/MMO IDK what to say. I wonder if it's gonna effect future sales of cod, bf, ps4/xb1? If this game is as good as it's being hyped right now I wouldn't be surprised.

I think it's going to top COD this year, that franchise is showing it's age.

But I doubt next gen console sales are going to suffer. Most likely, people who preordered next gen consoles preordered at least one shooter, F/TPS. And those same pre-orderers are either holding out for GTA on next gen, or have GTA preordered already. It's going to sell like hot cakes no matter what lol.
DARK WITNESS  +   500d ago
You wonder.... did you not see the news earlier that pre-order numbers for GTA5 were tracking way ahead of Cod ghost. Cod was like at number 3, while gta5 was no1.

it's already having an effect and if it's as fun as it looks to be, and cod is as disappointing as it looks to be, the GTA5 may just wipe the floor with it. I am not saying cod will not sell, but compared to past cods and looking at gta.. i think the king of online attention may finally lose his crown to a much much better game IMO.

From Rockstar: "Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V and launches on October 1st."

I don't ever want to play GTA online. It looks very mediocre, boring, and overall trash. The newest trailer dissapointed me, and I'm not buying into the damn hype. It's looking as mediocre as GTA4.

......Is what I would have said if I were a neckbeard hipster.
Septic  +   500d ago
Haha oh man you fooled me there for a bit. Imagine me sitting on the toilet and reading your post. I read the first bit and thought, that's it, time to type-slap this guy.

Then I read your last sentence and I was like

Lol you got me. I'm man enough to admit it. I'm also man enough to admit that I'm currently in the toilet struggling to get s*** done (literally). I actually feel like Gandalf is residing in my colon:

you got me dude I gave you a disagree before I even finished reading it though sorry about the team kill bro.
creized1  +   500d ago
wow man, I was about to say this guy is on drugs for real haha, until the last line :P
ifritAlkhemyst  +   500d ago
I never asked for this... And I'll have Battlefield 4 to occupy my multiplayer needs.
HammadTheBeast  +   500d ago
I did. And I'm excited as ever.

BF4 will be great, but come on. It's GTA.
ifritAlkhemyst  +   500d ago
Make no mistake, GTA V is my #1 anticipated game but I have no interest in its multiplayer component, just not my style.

I don't know what it will be like, but the idea definitely has potential.

It's not like I won't be playing Shadow fall, counterstrike, BF4, etc. anyway though.

Oh and the new Socom!!!!
hiredhelp  +   500d ago
Look doesn't matter if you not happy about the MP aspect of this AAA game that is GTA V there the enjoyable single player game and if you find that mediocre then why the hell you guys commenting on this news.

ifritAlkhemyst  +   500d ago
My god, my original comment was poking fun at the article title. My second comment says GTA V is the #1 game I look forward to, 2nd only to Dark Souls 2.

Sheesh, fellas need to pull them sticks out your rectum, take a deep breath, and realize not everything someone writes is an attack on your beloved franchise.
FateoftheGame  +   500d ago
I would imagine that people who don't care for Grand Theft Auto wouldn't want to play Grand Theft Auto Online, but that's just a wild guess.
TwistedMetal  +   500d ago
if you don't care for grand theft auto 5 then you don't care for gaming. even pc gamers love it.
FateoftheGame  +   499d ago
Sounds like an elitist bubble. Not everyone is ga-ga for GTA. Maybe talk to a few people outside of your small circle.
TwistedMetal  +   499d ago
@fate of the game we will see who likes gta when the sales for the game come out and you can see that it sold 100+ million lol.
GreenRanger  +   500d ago
I said it.

lol I like the elusive hit fishing title. I expect someone only reading the quotes first then going like. "Say what? Let me check who this Nobody Ever is." lol

Nah, but I can't wait for GTA V. After watching the multiplayer reveal, I was stunned with every little detail. Rockstar never ceases to amaze. Hundreds of hours will be put in this game, millions of bullets will be sprayed and a couple hookers will get their money taken...after the "deed" is done. lol

actually, i don't want to play. nothing sounds worse to me than playing a game filled with trolls, and griefers (based on my experience with red dead redemption).
maximus1985  +   500d ago
Ok
spektical  +   500d ago
GTA MP free roam will be full of misses. You have to right amount of chaotic and team players to make it truely fun.
Psychotica  +   500d ago
I am certainly going to try the online but most of my time will be in single player free roaming.
francisjairam16  +   500d ago
Pfft trolls.
mrmarx  +   500d ago
most games i loe and enjoy are single player. some games dont neen need a multi player all it does is take money away from the single player eperience. some games are good for multi. sports, shooters, fighting, some racing games. but game like god of war, gta, last of us, uncharted its just a waste of time in my opinion
FanMan  +   500d ago
I hate titles like these. I personally will not be buying or playing GTA. I have never cared for them and honestly think they are way overrated. So yes, "I don't want to play GTA online."
SonyKong64  +   500d ago
not everything can be a 2D top down button presser or jrpg..

I'm sorry you don't find close to full immersion appealing = (

you will hate oculus rift.
FateoftheGame  +   499d ago
Haha, immersion? Have you ever driven a car? Grand Theft Auto can't even get driving down!
TwistedMetal  +   500d ago
im sorry you don't like what gaming is all about. now go watch your Disney movies and cartoons.
anticlimax  +   499d ago
yes, because if you don't like what I like, you must be a child.

Not everyone needs to like the same things, don't be typical intolerant commentbashers.
CheexInk  +   499d ago
jesus, the marketers have done a serious number on you
MilkMan  +   500d ago
I wished that MP on on all my SP player games would just vanish and pretend they never were, but that's just me. maybe they'll get the message next, NEXT generation.
maximus1985  +   500d ago
Or, and this is just a thought...you can stick to single player and let the rest of us enjoy having options
TwistedMetal  +   499d ago
I think its because you are not good at mp that you don like it. instead of seeing why and correcting the reason why you are not good you just give up and don't play it and hide from it. to live in fear of video games mp is not a good thing lol.
MilkMan  +   499d ago
That was pretty clever response. :)
Not being a prick here, I genuinely smiled.
mydyingparadiselost  +   500d ago
I don't want to play GTA online.
There, now the headline is a complete lie :)
blackmanone  +   500d ago
I honestly don't want to play GTA Online. 16 players? Not good enough. Unless it's in the 1000's what's the point of a new game? Why not just play GTA V's online mode?
Broll  +   500d ago
I don't think there is going to be a GTA V online mode. This is it I believe.
CheexInk  +   499d ago
It's pretty sad when modders have made a better online GTA experience using San Andreas than Rockstar can with their new games.
Bathyj  +   500d ago
I dont want to play online.

But I dont care that its there. Rockstar arent doing the Assassins Creed/Call of Duty thing and churning out yearly updates and it sure looks like they didnt skimp on the single player so I have no problems with it being there.

And who knows, maybe one day I will enjoy playing online and this could be the game to make me do it.
kingmushroom  +   500d ago
Hey look GTA5 is not on PC take that PC elitist in you're face
anticlimax  +   499d ago
Don't be that guy, you can do better.
kingmushroom  +   499d ago
i don't even feel like trying, not worth my time, but i feels good just rubbing it in. Specially when PC fanboys wont shut up about graphics and how PC is so superior....i don't care, good for You and your Ultra PC.
anticlimax  +   499d ago
you're dissing pc fanboys, but you're just as bad.
JimCom95  +   500d ago
I'm not a big multiplayer guy, but i got to say i can not wait to play gta online and put countless hours into it!
kingPoS  +   500d ago
My friends list is gonna be 'LIT UP' with GTA5. (myself included)

Believe it!
