  • Rob a Liquor Store Together... and Then Betray Each Other - many places to rob, many options of how
  • Race Your Friends... and Hope Your Other Friends Don’t Get in the Way - races can be started at anytime, go anywhere
  • Steal a Frickin' Plane... and Land it Safely While Your Friends Escort You - many big heists to play as well
  • Full Multiplayer Golf and Tennis - minigames from GTA V singleplayer are in GTA Online (you can also wear masks too)
  • Chill Out at Your House and Spark a Bowl - chill, watch TV, hit a bong
  • The Most Popular Missions Bubble Up - Vote for the next mission to do, Rockstar will cut the unpopular ones eventually
  • Go to the Movies - More singleplayer activities available in GTA Online
  • ATM... but Not the Gross Version You’d Probably Expect GTA to Make a Joke About - Deposit or withdraw from ATMs or use your phone to transfer funds
  • Create Your Own Missions - Because why not? Challenge yourself or your friends
  • Visit a Strip Club - Yes, there is a "make it rain" button. Don't touch the girls too much or you'll get kicked out.

    that's a no brainer. buy a cheap console on ebay about 100-150 bucks or so

    I don't know what should I do, buy a console for just one game, or keep waiting for 8 months until a PC version is released...

    I agree with Viceman. I think they should implement a "dropbox" of sorts for missions that you dislike. Where you make suggestions as to how to improve that specific mission, tell them why you don't like it. Maybe a checklist. Just for the time being.

    They are going to make so much cash, it will be pocket change to have it converted to PC. Awaiting pc version.

    People are gonna be mad when races start getting unfair. Heres an idea: 1 guy in the race and another guy in a harrier jet who blows up everyone else and gets half the prize money, guarenteed first place and a lot of pissed off players everytime

    I don't think they'll be cutting things constantly. More like if 95% of people skip a certain mission, it's probably not that great.

    WOAH! there are people standing and shooting in the back of that pickup in the first screen!! that is badass

    "Vote for the next mission to do, Rockstar will cut the unpopular ones eventually" Not sure I approve of that, even the unpopular ones will be played by some. Why remove them and reduce the options the player has? I say keep everything... unless of course they replace it with something of superior quality.
