Epic thinking from epic devs.

Whoa whoa. This character customization info is very new and interesting...

So you choose lifestyle choices? Does that mean when youre not playing Online, your character is going about his day in the same way Trevor, Franklin, and Michael do? So when you choose ur online character he could be in the middle of an activity?

Interesting. Although I don't think your character will actually be doing stuff when your not using them like in the singleplayer. They could work it so that when you join the multiplayer they spawn them in the middle of something.

That's how the singleplayer characters work too. When you switch characters the game spawns them into the world into various activities/places.

Yeah i'm not expecting that your character is actually always around for others to see etc. But that in the cloud perhaps it continues to "perform" activities, so when you spawn it's in the middle of something. Bla, maybe not though considering it wouldn't make sense to suddenly spawn cop cars into the persistent world where others are.

Not sure if I make sense there. It's all so complex!

Wait. What? We don't get to actually create our own character? The game automatically creates it based on who we choose our parents to be? I'm not sure how I feel about that, I like actually customizing how my character looks.

its probably just their way of generating unique faces ..... i'd still prefer to make my own though

I have both next gen consoles reserved but I am looking more forward to GTA 5 than the new consoles.
