There are many people who love GTA:O on consoles and PC, and last gen consoles. They took on a games as a service and got huge return for it. They were one of the first to jump on it and maybe foresaw it from the RDR O and GT4:O. They kept a community really active amazing mods have come out, incredible numbers of youtube videos/streams with their game.
I don't know, I don't call that disappointing. Also RDR2 is the best western shooter rpg ever.
Characters control like a tank. Also the game is almost entirely reliant on auto-aim and deadeye. Using this strong auto-aim and deadeye feels like cheats to me.
Plus points: Fantastic atmosphere and presentation but the game is let down by the fact that its not trying to be a game. Instead its trying to be a wild west simulator. Its fine to create a game that looks lifelike but I much dislike it when it plays like it too.
I like rdr2 but rarely find the motivation to play it now.. Don't think I've bothered with gta5 since I replaced my. Ps4 with the pro. I simply cannot be arsed waiting for the online component to load. Shit takes forever.
Gta online ... I blame gtao. It was great until heists. Then it overstayed it's welcome. I personally also think red dead redemption 2 suffered because of it, and also because of the lack of Leslie benz. It had its moments but it felt very weirdly paced and repetitive.
I hope they aren't complacent. It would be a shame to see Rockstar only doing gta every 10 years and cashing in on gtao until the next release.
