First off, it really is remarkable they supported online play for 8 years.

That said, the PS3 and XBOX360 versions of GTAV online are absolute anarchy with cheating and bugs. My friend showed me, a few years ago his PS3 version and it was insane. Cheating and exploits absolutely run amok and completely out of control.

In addition, things the like Casino Heist, Doomsday Heist, and Cayo Perico were exclusive to PC and newer consoles, PS3 and XBOX360 missed out on those and a lot of others.


So in the end, given that Rockstar had pretty much given up on PS3 and XBOX360 quite awhile ago, it's even more perplexing the online mode has gone on this long.

It's pretty crazy they kept it goin for 8 years. I remember when Bungie claimed Destiny would be a "decade game" with play and support for 10+ years. Then they released Destiny 2 3 years later.

I have a soft spot for AC, it's so good.

/but GTAV online has been absolutely staggeringly good
//the sheer volume of content they have crammed into that game is mind-boggling

Skyrim isn't even in the same league as GTA.

GTA works out of the box.

But it's understandable that, after almost eight years of service on outdated, hard-to-buy consoles, now's the time to pull the plug.

It's hard to buy current gen consoles without getting price gouged.

I'm old now, and was always a PC gamer, anyway (at least since my 90s Amiga days - 80s was Intellivision and arcades). But a while back I got a 360 for like $20. Have used it to catch up on games that are new to me (playing Red Dead Redemption right now).

GTAV was a revelation. I loved GTA2 when it was released. One of the best games ever. Used to wonder what it'd be like in 3D at street level. And while GTAIII answered that, it never grabbed me as hard as its predecessor. It was a great game, but it was missing something. Enter me finally getting back to the franchise last year with GTAV: best video game ever, in my old opinion. Just how it made me nostalgic for LA alone was beyond impressive.

Has any date/details come out yet on GTA V enhanced?

Red Dead Redemption has actually aged quite well. I still enjoy it and play it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the greatest storyline in a video game ever. I urge you to play that when you finish RDR, you won't regret it. RDR 2 is one of the very best gaming experiences ever.

/and of course I support your point about GTAV being the best ever

I haven't heard anything.

I hope PC gamers can get the add-ons with minimal cost, but really, I'll shell out for just about anything. The slate of DLC that Rockstar has released for GTAV online is impressive beyond measure.

Google is telling me release date of November 11.

November 11th for GTA Online. Maybe the same for single, not sure.

After racking up over 1,000 hours in GTAV Online, I can honestly say, who gives a sh*t about story mode.

The only exception would be is if they were transitioning story mode to include as many online elements as possible.

What I mean is....one day GTAV Online will end for everyone and right now, if that happened, the only way you could play GTAV is in story mode with no extra heists, no casino, no Cayo Perico, basically, nothing that makes online so great.

What I really hope is that there is a way to still play those modes in single player even after GTAV Online gets shut down.

Obviously things like business battles, races, survivals, and multiplayer heists can't still happen, but hopefully they preserve as much as possible.

That, or fully open GTAV to modding, which I guess has pretty much already happened.

I had it on the PS3 and only played online to get the trophies for my platinum. When I got the PS4 version I went online to move my character over and all the online trophies just popped. That's it.

I don't like competitive multiplayer except for the occasional racing game. I know they added a bunch of co-op type stuff but I tend to only play with friends online and none of my friends got the upgraded version. I had sold my PS3 so I could take my cat to the vet so that was off the table at that point.

PS: The story is fantastic. FU  :P

I used to not like online, but a friend turned me on to it and I got hooked.

Don't get me wrong, GTAV story mode is very good, I enjoy it.

What I meant is that I can't go back to 2013 GTAV story mode. I just can't. I have played way too much online to be able to live without my bunker, MC, coke lockup, submarine, nightclub, extra fancy cars, warehouse, and a whole host of other cool sh*t.

Thank you.
I only just got down to Mexico, but my love of old Westerns and trust of Rockstar is holding up pretty well.
I hope to hell I wanna play RDR2 after this, and that it's even better.

If you've seen GTAV played on a mid-high end PC you've already seen it.

Which will happen first? GTA VI or the heat death of the universe?
