I don't know, seems like a bigger and better version of IV's multiplayer, not sure why some people are going that crazy over it. I mean I really cannot wait for V, the reaction the multiplayer video is getting is the same reaction I had to the singleplayer video...
I guess people wan't a GTA MMO-like a lot more than I do, but whenever I think about that all I can remember is the awful time I had in both IV and Red Dead's free roam multiplayer. I guess we'll see how well they handle the griefing aspect. Although, the amount of griefing possible in GTA is incredibly varied and interesting, so maybe that will work in it's favour.
Well I support this action. I've always liked Phil and Fez was my GotY last year, it makes me sad but nowhere near as sad as I am with this industry and its consumers. I've always thought if I was a community manager for a developer I would never have the patience for it, but it would be even worse to get that much abuse directly, for making what you want to make, even!
In the end this is just telling of what toll internet abuse can take. It shouldn't be taken lightly.
