Hello there, duders.
Let's see how much time each one of you has spent on GTA:O.
So far I have played 80 hours and I'm only a lvl 39. Yes, I already spent half of the 500k... on dumb stuff.
Ta daaa! What do I win!?
But I have spent over 95 hours on the single player... I have no idea where I found the time over the past couple of months to be honest ( I wonder if it counts all the times I just left it on )
I suppose I should really log in again at some point and collect all that free in-game money they've been promising. But every time I remembered about it, I saw another article that said "...has been delayed until possibly next week"
@fredchuckdave: Everything of interest is locked away behind rank ups. Armoured truck robberies, gang attacks (like hideouts in RDR), heli support, even golf & tennis is locked away behind level ups. By the time you reach level 15 or 20 there is actually a variety of things to do both mission wise and in the open world. I'd recommend racing to grind through that boring early stage as it provides good money and experience.
@wacomole: The payouts finally started yesterday.
Social Club doesn't appear to be up, but from what I remember when checking the stats in the game, it's definitely over 6 days or something ridiculous like that. Though...
a huge chunk of that time has just been driving around and chatting.
This is undoubtedly why.
The only times I've really enjoyed the online is when jumping in with friends and we dick about. The lack of interesting content to play through if you are just playing with random's is a real concern. If I had no friends that played GTA V I would have not put more than a hour into it by now.
-REAL story like missions need to be a thing. The fact that everything you can do basically boils down to mini games from the main story is pissing me off. Just give me some scraps of story Rockstar, seriously fuckin anything.
-HEISTS NEED TO BE A THING THAT IS BACK IN THE ONLINE MODE ASAP.....SERIOUSLY!
Credit where credit is due though I have had the most fun with 'Top Fun 1/2/3' modes. Even with random's that mode is great fun. I don't know how many other crazy races you can have like that but I dont know many other places that can offer something like that.
At this point I'm just waiting for Rockstar to add more content. I'm accumulating money (even before the stimuli) and have no idea what I really want to spend it on. I have nothing long term I feel like I'm building towards other than getting more guns!
Maybe a few hours. I liked roaming the west in RDR because when a random online player sent me to the grave for no reason, it kinda felt fitting. In GTA V, I feel like I'm getting killed by random douchebags with guns.
Though I do have 500,000 in the bank that needs spending, so I'll probably spend some time on the multiplayer at some point.
5 Days 20 hours - earned in total a little over 7,450,000$. Plus two lost characters of probably 10-20 hours each. Still got 600k on my bank account, eventually planning on buying a Buzzard or Annhilator - though probably only when new significant content comes out.
Hoping there will be a PS4 version, and that all my progress in GTA Online carries over. That, and Rockstar should really rethink how they manage their matchmaking, because it's abysmal. At least 20 hours or my total time spent on GTA Online has been spent waiting in empty lobbies, respectively on the GB forums, while waiting for players to join.
I don't think the gameplay is good enough to really fit well when playing with humans, the driving is fine but the shooting feels wonky still, which is weird because you'd think after Rockstar's experience with Max Payne 3 they'd have looked at that and got it right.
Well over 100 hours to the point where I'm feeling a tad burnt out on it? As much fun as I had playing with people from the community and all the insanely dumb shit we got up to I feel like until we get the heists or at the very least some more missions I'm just going to sit back and play other stuff. Still, really really like GTA Online though.
Everyone complaining about it being boring are boring people. The game gives back to you what you put into it.
Not going to bother looking up the stats, because I know it's fairly low. I think I gave it a fair shake at about three or four hours. Probably five if you count the time I had to replay the tutorial bullshit. Outside of it not working super well, I still didn't enjoy myself that much. Maybe if I had a group to play with, it'd be more fun. But only just. And I don't feel the need to validate the purchase by wringing out the value of a mostly unremarkable multiplayer mode. Put plenty of time in the single player, but probably less than any of the previous GTA games. Not sure if I'm growing up or if it's a slightly lesser experience, or maybe a bit of both.
i tried very hard to like this in the very early going and tired of it very quickly. i played probably 2 or 3 hours of brief tutorial followed by a bunch of dull races. has it gotten more enjoyable? i sure hope so. maybe i'll give it another shot at some point. i have 50+ games on my shelf that i haven't played, though, so why should i go back to this one?
I think the important thing to take from this is that Sooty plays GTA for the traffic.
As someone who played GTA IV following traffic laws as an experiment I have some observation on GTA traffic. Firstly, GTAV traffic seems like the first time since GTA3 that they changed the traffic AI. It's no longer fucking terrible. It's still not Sleeping Dogs good but it is finally not obviously bad. Secondly, it seems like GTA Online has reverted to the old style of car randomization; it loads a select few models to save loading times. That's something that they got rid of starting with GTAIV in order to make it seem like there was a greater variety of vehicles. The fact that GTAO will load in the same car a couple dozen times before I find something new is disappointing considering Simeon wants a specific type of car. It also demonstrates just how much they are pushing to get out of the system for GTAO, considering how much the open world systems are altered from single player to multiplayer.
Around a few hours give or take. I preferred the multiplayer where you can fuck around with everything at your disposal and not invest hours of your time grinding and doing silly missions I don’t care about. I'll probably go back to it when they implement a mode where I can do just that.
