This is how Grand Theft Auto Online is meant to be played

Grand Theft Auto Online is all sorts of wacky fun but we believe this video showcases how it is best meant to be played.

Meant, yes, but how it is played is you are troll killed 9 times out of 10, lol.

GarrusVakarian982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

Speak for yourself, you must not have any friends. Ive played it with my closest friends 99% of the time and its a blast and because we speak on Skype we can communicate perfectly and the missions are alot of fun.

The rare times when ive been in a public free roam alone was horrible, people just drive to each other to kill each other and that's all they do. I guess it sucks playing solo and being troll killed over and over.

Im almost tempted to drop you a friend request and let you play with us ZBlacktt, show you how fun it is when you play the game as a group. Almost.

Dude he did not say anything wrong.

Stop being so mean to him dude.

GarrusVakarian982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

@DoomeDx

I'm not being mean, but someone that says he is being troll killed all the time strikes me as someone who doesn't have any friends to play it with and just plays solo with randomers.

-EvoAnubis-982d ago

Agreed. If it's just me in a public room all by myself, I'll just play something else instead - the trolls ruin things for loners. With a Crew/Friends however, this game is fantastic. Even when the trolls come at that point it's still fun - four of my friends and I spent a good hour killing a troll over and over again all over Blaine County.

SonyWarrior982d ago

this guy talking in a pedo voice to these little kids is funny he should be banned from online for his pedo activities or at least closly monitored

Elwenil982d ago

There are solo sessions for a reason. If none of your crew or friends are online, join a solo session from the pause menu and avoid all the trolls and griefers. You can still do missions and join matches with other people but when you go back to freemode, you will be solo again.

Not everybody has friends who play games. Some of us, our friends don't play games.

And it's not a popularity contest...you must still be in high school.

@zblacktt - get your skills up and stop playing traditional/ aim assisted.
Change your single player aim setting to free aim.
You will then only go into free aim lobbies online - Free mode, missions, TDM etc..

GarrusVakarian982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

Yep, a lot of people don't know that if their singleplayer setting is on auto aim then he will only play online with people who also use auto aim.

Turn it off and you will play with people who actually have skill and don't just insta-headshot you.

Audiggity981d ago

WHAT!?!?! I never knew that! Seriously. I had it set to auto aim for a specific mission and never changed it because I assumed it was optional (and I might as well get the drop on fools)...

Oh man, this is awesome, changing to free aim first thing tonight.

r1sh12980d ago

@All above.
Yeah its insane rockstar have not put it in the online options.
Ive sent an email to the support team to see whether that can be put in, but COD is numbed everyones ability to play with 100% free aim

Awwwww, this is so adorable! This kid clearly won't have any mental issues when he grows up! I say screw it, get rid of the rating system we have in place and let all little kids play violent games! Hell, all grade-schools should have a class where all you do is play "M" rated games, and gym class should be replaced with watching porn in a dark room! That outta straighten this country out!

@ZBlacktt: Better English please, not broke ass english.

iceman06982d ago

LOL!!! I was thinking...aww how cute...then I realized this was a GTA game. I don't know if the parents were there to supervise or not, but that experience could have been a whole lot worse!!! I personally wouldn't let my kids anywhere near a GTA game until they are at least teenagers (maybe 15 or 16) and proving that they are mature enough to handle the content. But, that isn't my kid...and so it goes.

Salooh982d ago

It's all in parenting. I have been playing violence games since i was 9 years old. I only had effect with nudity in games. That's why i'm against it. As for violence my parents taught me well of how life works , so nothing will ever change that because i recognise what's right/real and what's wrong/fake.

But i think some kids shouldn't play until they realise reality .

franko982d ago

...And they all died happily ever after...

DarkLordMalik982d ago

This comment made me chuckle :D

AllroundGamer982d ago

so many little kids playing a 18+ game... gets really annoying, since there is no "Mute All" button :/

Pintheshadows982d ago

I heard a boy on it the other night who couldn't of been older than 8 or 9. Either that or he had been castrated. Parents need to educate themselves and not just cave in to the demands of their spawn.

MysticStrummer982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

I think this game has surpassed CoD in the Most Annoying People On Mic category. I long for an easier way to mute people who think they are funny, that they can sing, or that others want to hear their crappy music. A day or two ago I was in a room with a girl who sounded very young and matched all those characteristics. She was being flirted with by a guy who sounded much older, so it was both irritating and disturbing. On top of all that, their screwing around kept causing us to fail the mission, then they'd vote to restart before the Quit option would appear on my screen. Finally the fourth guy on out "team" managed to finish the mission by himself.

iceman06981d ago

Agreed. I was on a server with my clan and was pretty much harassed and hunted for over 40 minutes because of my race. As soon as he found us, minding our own business by the way, it was the N-word over and over and over. Of course I muted him AND reported him. But, it was just the fact that we pretty much had to stay in missions/races for an hour just to avoid him. We could have tried to switch servers, but they were being particularly silly and this was the first time all might that we were able to group up. (kept saying that one or another of our clan were not online). It just sucks that we had to go through all of that just to have a bit of fun in a video game. Tis life...I guess!?!

PersonMan982d ago

There is a mute all button. Hold select and choose who you want to hear. It's probably on "everyone" but you can change it to friends or crews

AllroundGamer982d ago

I selected that from the start to only crew+friends and i still hear everyone... (PS3 version)

PersonMan981d ago

You have to close the menu to make it take effect.

Koyes982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

I was in the unfortunate position of having to play with randoms yesterday, due to all my friends not being able to play Online (cloud issues), and it was awful! I was in a bicycle race yesterday and I won and this teen shouts 'f***ing n***er' to me because I won the race -_-

GarrusVakarian982d ago

Yeah, i was having cloud issues last night too. But i turned the game off rather than play with the dreaded free roam randomers,lol.
