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.

Let's see. . .

This is just on this character, mind you. I've had three, I think, deleted. So my total time would be . . .

Over 4.5 days apparently, or 110 hours. And I've only managed to save up enough to buy one moderately expensive car in that time.

0 hours.

I thought about turning it on once.

#5 Posted by Fredchuckdave (5746 posts) -

3 hours, was boring as hell the entire time.

#6 Posted by try_again_later (1 posts) -

15 minutes. 70 hours in the single player though.

I'm level 51 after 65 hours of play. I didn't do any farming either. It's mostly been golf and races because that's what I enjoy, but those races on Criminal Records and Down the Drain are fucking boring. I usually quit when I end up in those races.

It seems crazy that I have spent four days playing GTA online although admittedly a huge chunk of that time has just been driving around and chatting.

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"

0.

I was checking this yesterday, and it's about 65 hours - I'm level 52

#12 Posted by Nodima (1244 posts) -

It's just about all I play, but I only play video games once or twice a week generally.

#13 Posted by mosespippy (4286 posts) -

@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.

#14 Posted by Yummylee (22067 posts) -

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.

#16 Posted by Rekt_Hed (848 posts) -

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!

#17 Posted by MidNVis (23 posts) -

84 hours at Rank 57. Disturbingly, my character's picture isn't showing up right now when I check my stats haha

#18 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

20 minutes. I saw enough.

I'd rather dick around offline where the traffic isn't halved.

#19 Posted by SunBroZak (1204 posts) -

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.

#20 Posted by ll_Exile_ll (1815 posts) -

20 hours, but that was all in like the first week of it working. I haven't played since then and don't see myself going back. It was okay, but not as amazing and revolutionary as I was hoping it would be.

#21 Posted by Guesty_01 (376 posts) -

About 10 minutes. An absolute mess and disappointment.

#22 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

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.

GTA Online comes into its own like 10-20 hours in. I'd give it a real shot, if I were you. It can be fantastic.

#24 Edited by RubberBabyBuggyBumpers (725 posts) -

only 10 to 12 hours. even with the awesomeness of being placed in a bad sport lobby, the online mode is still boring.

#25 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4420 posts) -

Less than an hour, which was enough for me to say no thanks

The FF:XIII of online multiplayer.

#27 Posted by awesomeusername (4219 posts) -

I took a break from the online for like 2 weeks. Played it again the past 2 nights because my friend told me to get on but man is it getting boring. I just want to do heists already.

#29 Edited by Pr1mus (3952 posts) -

I'm not done yet either.

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.

#31 Posted by Panelhopper (192 posts) -

About an hour, I really prefer the main game

#32 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2497 posts) -

Probably no more than 10 hours. I'd play more if my friends would, because otherwise the online is boring as shit.

#33 Posted by mosespippy (4286 posts) -

@rekt_hed: Top Fun 1/2/3 are great, but what's really great is the Fort Zancudo vehicle deathmatch. Everybody spawns in jets! I don't know what level that unlocks at though. I've only played it once.

What a travesty that is.

#35 Edited by Demoskinos (15019 posts) -

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.

#36 Posted by MidNVis (23 posts) -

I think the important thing to take from this is that Sooty plays GTA for the traffic.

#37 Edited by HatKing (6025 posts) -

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.

#38 Posted by 49th (2785 posts) -

Probably about 10 hours. It's fun but stupid people hold it back. I don't really care for most of the missions, and if other players weren't all so boring just shooting on sight some cool situations could occur but alas they are dumb.

#39 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3577 posts) -

I'm actually kinda surprised people have put some time in the multiplayer portion. From my perspective the whole "online being broke" thing told me I'll wait a few weeks till I come back to it, which never happenend.

#40 Edited by UitDeToekomst (720 posts) -

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?

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.

@mosespippy: Ah brings me back to the days of GTA III where the entire street was lined with nothing but Taxi Cabs.

#43 Edited by pyrodactyl (2190 posts) -

20-30hrs? I'm waiting for heists to but in more time

#44 Edited by DonPixel (2585 posts) -

I didn't know it's true but when I was online it felt empty traffic wise, so it's definitely the case?

Zero out of the awful character creator and the online that was busted at launch.

#49 Posted by OtakuGamer (1263 posts) -

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.

#50 Edited by falserelic (5469 posts) -

I've played it for awhile at times, but overall I really don't care for the online mode. To be honest I remember GTA 4 online being more fun.
