Do you HAVE to choose your grandparents? I don't really care for that feature and the way it affects the look of your character so i hope its not forced.
Aleithian  +   356d ago
From my experience with it earlier yes, you have to choose them.
MysticStrummer  +   356d ago
It certainly seems forced to me. If there's a way around it, I couldn't find it. It's a terrible character creation process and I can't believe Rockstar decided to go with it.

Not only do you have to choose the grandparents, but you have to decide for each parent whether they look more like their mother or father, and then do the same for yourself. Then, just when you think you have it as close as you're gonna get it... you pick lifestyle settings which can further change your appearance for no apparent reason. I understand the clothes changing because of lifestyle, but why would hair color/style and facial hair change just because I sit on the couch a little more or less? It's really a bizarre system.

No you dont. You can leave it how is given

Well, if you want to make a character as close as you can imagine I suggest doing so.

My character turned out pretty well. The only thing is hes seems pretty damn tall, which I don't really mind to much. That might be do to the fact that his fitness is a bit higher than everything else. My characters stats are generally even.

From what I experienced, tinkering with the grandparants gives your character a more appropriate customized look based on what you want your character to look like.

It sucks. Massively disappointing. There's no reason they couldn't have included some of the cooler features, like lifestyles choices, within something like a Saint's Row-esque creation system.

Damn i made my character but after that im unable to log in and actually play the game. just me ?
tigertron  +   356d ago
No, it's happened to me too. I made my character but can't connect. I assume that's the same for 99% of players.

Btw, terrible character creation system.
Aleithian  +   356d ago
You'll probably lose your character. It seems that if you create a character and can't host, you lose the character save. Not sure if it's universal, but it's happened to me every time.
OlgerO  +   356d ago
I know man and all the characters look ugly and fatheaded.
Ripsta7th  +   356d ago
Nah me either, it says unable to host a session
FullMetalTech  +   356d ago
No. alot of people are experiencing this. Right after the process and you go past the intro it locks up and kicks players back out.

This is a new unique creation system , people say they hate it but I say it's great , after all Rockstar is trying something new that no one else tried

Aleithian  +   356d ago
That it's unique and has never been tried before doesn't mean anything. Here are some reasons it sucks:

1. It is massively limited.
2. The characters look ugly.
3. You can't change the character's body.
4. While GTA is great, one of its competitors - Saint's Row - has one of the best character creation systems out there. I'm sure this won't encourage anyone to leave GTA for SR, but it shows the potential in this market, a potential which Rockstar hasn't worked to achieve.
5. So the character can be derived from parents and grandparents. So what? Big deal. Heredity doesn't affect the game. Control of your own character's appearance, however, does.

You do know that there is a plastic surgery in online , right ?
Aleithian  +   356d ago
I'm doing a search for "plastic surgery GTA online" and am finding literally nothing. So I'm not sure what amazing option you are talking about. And even if they have plastic surgery, it won't change the basic ugliness of the online character models or the lack of variable body shape. Nor will it compete with SR's system.
-Foxtrot  +   356d ago
If Rockstar look at what Saints Row has done and do it but make it 10 times better then they would own Saints Row in something the games currently doing better then GTA

I don't see why Rockstar haven't done this yet
