7 years since release, and it’s only going from strength to strength. As successful as the game is, there are definitely improvements that can be made by Rockstar Games. GTA Online continues to be one of the best online worlds in video games. Certain game elements have been downright frustrating over the years, and the player base has been vocal about it. frustrate the players
The economy that GTA Online launched with doesn’t exist anymore. This move has been met with a lot of disdain from the player base. This move is seen by most of the community as a way for Rockstar to get people to spend money on Shark Cards instead of grinding the hours for a single-vehicle. Much like the real world, inflation has struck Los Santos, and everything is expensive. Players are frustrated by how expensive the most mundane vehicles cost.
Painfully long load times
Another great annoyance for the GTA Online community is the load time for GTA Online. Taking over two minutes on average to load into GTA Online on a powerful PC is still way too long. Players having gigabit Ethernet or the fastest SSD in the world cannot evade GTA Online’s monstrously long load time. Not to mention, PS4 and Xbox players will take significantly longer on their slower hard drives.
While Passive Mode can help a little in this scenario, Passive Mode is disabled when players are an MC President or a VIP/CEO, rendering it useless. Too often, players that are simply going about their business get blown up by griefers in Oppressors or Hydras. The punishment for griefing from Rock star’s end is laughable, and the $2,000 reward for good behavior is even more of a slap in the face for players just looking to play the game.
