Grand Theft Auto Online Initial Impressions

EGM - "For the first week or so, that was true on a technical level. Like most everyone else, I was rarely able to maintain a stable enough connection to the servers to even properly play, and whenever I did, my character would spontaneously delete itself every time I logged out of the server. I spent so long fiddling with the awful, unintuitive character creator that I was eventually able to remake my avatar—a demure young woman with a ponytail and unavoidably terrifying eyes—in about 12 seconds." (Grand Theft Auto Online, PS3, Xbox 360)

"Now, I sit in the bushes with as many grenades as I can carry, waiting for someone to approach. At the first glimmer of menace—a gun being drawn, a sudden change of course, any tremor of intent—I explode into action. They explode into pieces. I am prey become [a$$hole]"

I have not killed anyone in free roam yet that didn't attack me.

I did have a funny turn the other day when I beat the hell out of another players car with a crowbar and they promptly stole my car and we got in a 10 minute chase. Great fun.

I haven't done this myself, yet.

But I saw someone say they like to shoot out the tires of players robbing stores, and watching them fail miserably when they go to flee the police arrive on the scene, in their bottomed out car.

I think the concept is hysterical!

Thinking of funny things to do to other players is great. That is genius though.
