I liked the narrative spin with the activities in V.

I could see Trevor going on a psychotic rampage. Or Franklin being adventurous with skydiving and triathlons. I just wish there were rampages and more activities for Micheal.

The problem is that it limits you to only doing like 5 of each activity.

nigger post cayo perico there was a event which upped the panther rate, the thing is that panther is grinderfaggotry, you need to scope the island and if you don't get panther you have to cancel the heist and try again.

and on the SR, deep silver and volition are kind of like running with scissors minus their pure chadness.
The panther statue (like the diamonds in the casino heist) are only available when Rockstar allows them to be. If they had an event that turn if on, it was only for a week then they deactivated it.

Post proof or you are faggot and bootlicker
i'm not a grinderfag.

there are grinderfags though but it seems it's by events like the diamonds, i keep getting bonds or the necklace.

Getting your hands on either target is not easy. You have to wait for Rockstar Games to make them live, and that only comes during a special event week. Though, some players have used exploits to get them early too.[...]
If you would like to change your target, all you have to do is follow these simple steps. Repeat this process until you get the Panther statue, and you’re already half way there!
  1. Drop into GTA Online.
  2. Visit your Heist setup room.
  3. Start the Cayo Perico heist.
  4. Fly across the map in the Velum plane, before starting the minigame to pick your target.
  5. Check out your Cayo Perico target.
  6. If it’s not a Panther statue or Pink Diamond target – restart the mission.
so if you see a nigger with panther he is probably a cheater as cheaters can alter their stuff.

I don't understand why the GTA community would spend money for car meets online, when they could just buy Midnight Club: LA for a fraction of the price and have access to more customization, licensed vehicles and an accurate representation of Los Angeles.

Less cheater, more clickbaiter. Seen tons of articles on "How to do/get X in Y" and they basically go "Wait till it's added."

Like how in that articles is says:
1. Select the Panther Statue as your heist target (when its live)

requires a X360/PS3, there's even retrocompatibility with XONE meanwhile PS4 gets to eat shit, kek.

no nigger, cheater as in if you spot a panther without the period it's active, there's a replay glitch where you can keep the same target agen too but it's only for consoles, aaaand on PC...
Change the value below MPx_H4CNF_TARGET to choose the primary target
  1. 0: Tequila: 900K (Normal) | 990k (Hard)
  2. 1: Ruby Necklace: 1M (Normal) | 1.1M (Hard)
  3. 2: Bearer Bonds: 1.1M (Normal) | 1.21M (Hard)
  4. 3: Pink Diamond: 1.3M (Normal) | 1.43M (Hard)

I've made the analogy that GTA Online is a model city. Then, your little sibling comes in and dumps all these random toys in and takes over.

The weapons, vehicles, quests and scenarios added in these GTA Online updates are immersion breaking. What's a flying rocket launcher bike doing in a Southern California city? What do we have access to laser weapons? Why and how does a criminal have access to a satellite WMD?

And the actual criminal activities like arms racing, biker gangs and high level criminality are locked behind paywalls and unnecessary restrictions.

GTA Online is the most unbalanced, money hungry, F2P open world game yet.

Wasn't paying much attention, but did Rockstar ever state why the GTA 5 single player updates and dlc got cut?

I wouldnt even mind the futuristic shit if they gave us an excuse like acting out one of Michael's movies and shit

I know there's probably going to be a subset of people who go straight to the "it's a video game" argument, but GTA is a satirical series based in reality. Half the shit in Onine makes no sense. A flying car? A flying motorcycle that shoots rockets? C'mon, dude. That's all it is, it's centered around nickel and diming for easy mode weapons/vehicles. San Andres had a jetpack and a hovercraft and that's as crazy as I remember it getting. V is a cash grab and nothing more.

Haven't watched the vid yet but I'm guessing that's what's being argued. Gonna watch now.

There are a couple speculated reasons why backed up with fact and reason.

The official reason from R* of a Game Informer article:

With GTA V, the single-player game was absolutely massive and very, very complete. It was three games in one. The next-gen versions took a year of everyone’s time to get right, then the online component had a lot of potential, but to come close to realizing that potential also sucked up a lot of resources. And then there are other games – in particular Red Dead Redemption II. The combination of these three factors means for this game, we did not feel single-player expansions were either possible or necessary, but we may well do them for future projects. At Rockstar, we will always have bandwidth issues because we are perfectionists and to make huge complex games takes a lot of time and resources.

GTA IV's expansions did not sell as well as Take Two expected. I guess they were expecting the episodes to reach the heights as the main game. Why not? Maybe the exclusivity deal. Who knows?

Sounds like they did not to risk that with GTA V and saw that Online was lucrative and decided to focus on that. From a business sense, I get it. The execution and timing could not had been more disastrous. Now they're just milking GTA Online; GTA V is an afterthought.

Adding on to this, there was a lot of shit going on internally regarding Leslie Benzies getting kicked the fuck out of Rockstar and all the issues that came with it. I think a bunch of team members took off after he was booted, and any completed assets for the single player DLC (Alien, Zombie, Agent, I'm sure 90% of this shit was completed) got recycled into Online in some form because I think the know-how to put it together in SP went with those people. But don't quote me on that.

Don't tell me what to do.

The recycling of assets for Online is plausible. I believe the Doomsday Heist was originally supposed to be single player DLC.

I can't remember where the hell I read the team members thing but I think it was in the same place as Benz getting booted by the Housers.

And yes, the Doomsday Heist was cobbled together from the Agent DLC. There were assets for it found buried in the game files by people on GTA Forums back in 2013 (I think the jetpack and something else).

GTAForums Nibber said:
To sum it up:

The story DLCs would be "what-if" stories for each SP character with a central theme surrounding it.

Michael was supposed to get a alien invasion DLC where he would fight off a alien invasion, it is not known if he would be directly helping the government in said invasion or not, it is also not known if Franklin and/or Trevor would appear in the story.

Franklin would a get Zombie apocalypse DLC were LS would be overrun by zombies, some streets and buildings would be barricaded with new props, said props can be seen in the Arena War creator(that nobody seemed to have a f*ck about) if your Arena War game has a Apocalypse theme.

Trevor would get a Agent styled DLC were he would work for the government in some missions, a good chunk of content of this DLC was reused in the Doomsday Heist DLC for Online.

Apparently all of those stories would be past the ending of the singleplayer Story.

There was also meant to be a Casino heist in single player, but I do not know if that was a story DLC or just cut content like the Sharmota Job heist.

I'd guess it was the exclusivity deal as well as GTA IV being viewed as boring as fuck by most casuals at the time. I can't tell you how many dudes were talking about how shit GTA IV was compared to Saints Row 1 around the time I graduated.

I don't believe there was ever a plan for the casino to be a single player thing. Very early into GTA Onlines life there were audio files of Madrazo telling you that the casino had opened and other such things. IIRC the files pertaining to the casino in Online were around as early as Heists, maybe even predating Heists release.

GTA IV had the best story of any GTA game but was honestly one of the shittiest in terms of gameplay. Outside of story missions, it was boring as fuck.

Eh, even the story missions were boring as fuck after the first playthrough.

Start at A - Go to B - Scripted Chase/Tailing a car - Shootout

Technically and Narratively it was a big push forward, but structure/gameplay wise it was kind of a huge step back.
