GTA Online Stimulus Package Is Finally Rolling Out, But Is It Too Little Too Late?

Dealspwn writes: "GTA Online feels like the ghost of Los Santos, without enough simultaneous players or varied missions to provide much in the way of soul. Many players - including some of our regulars - have already found themselves tired of the awkward middle ground between fully-fledged MMO and empty theme park. There's fun to be had when you get online with a crew of mischievous mates, but it can be so very fleeting." (Grand Theft Auto Online, PS3, Xbox 360)

Pretty much I got my $ last nite but with the cash glitch 500k is pretty much nothing cause ppl just use the lsc glitch and make way more $ that way

As much as I hate that logic, I can't argue with it! Still, a few players will probably get back online to rank up and actually unlock some of the pricier stuff.

It is still missing features and I have lost interest in it. With next-gen just 7 days away there is there is no point in trying to get back into GTA5.

i find its just ridiculous to have to pay $500 each time you die.

Yes money can be made in this game, but along the way your gonna die multiple times. It all starts adding up.

Look at all the other multiplayer games, you aren't charged anything when you respawn. Just another way rockstar can get money from you to get you to possibly purchase more money from them.

I got 8 days till my ps4 arrives, and 7 days after that my xbox one. thats about how long rockstar may have my attention to their game.

Most MMOs have some sort of penalty for dying, such as a one-off fee or durability - clearly that's their inspiration. Personally, I'm more annoyed by the fact that destroying personal vehicles is frowned upon. This is GTA for goodness' sake! Destroying vehicles is the whole point!

And don't get me started on bounties. That system needs a total overhaul.

I can understand paying for the car you blow up but the bad sport system is so flawed

yea i find that annoying too, one game i logged in, to be instantly assaulted by 2 high level guys in a car. after 5-6 deaths, i finally managed to get hidden behind something and bomb the dudes car, only to lose 12k (all the money I had) to insurance for this guys car. Yes i know, this is gta, i'm supposed to get killed, but something needs to be reworked with the system, if im getting griefed upon with no prior provocation towards individuals, i should not be charged for killing them or their car.

500 is a lot better than it was before with 2k a death. A little fun in the open world would set you back a while. But yah, a little bit late on their part. New systems will be rolling out starting next week, and they haven't even gotten Heists out.
Blues Cowboy  +   451d ago
Yeah I think that's the key really. We need more stuff to do, and to make our continued play worthwhile!

Yes, it's VERY easy to get 500K
