Rockstar Better Not Repeat GTA 5’s Mistake In GTA 6

Most gamers would agree that GTA 5 is one of the top titles in the gaming arena but this does not mean that this game is perfect. If there’s one thing to dislike about GTA 5, it has got to be the game’s online multiplayer mode.

Rockstar had ruined the online part of GTA 5 when it made it tougher to play with every update. This is because it became harder to grind for money as players had to put in more time to produce a good figure in a single online session or they end up losing it all in a matter of minutes.

This took some of the fun off the game and as if that wasn’t bad enough, the new update brought Shark Cards which basically permitted players to use actual dollars to acquire a solid position in GTA 5 Online.

Shark Card’s inclusion in the game made many players lose interest in GTA 5 Online and this has affected their perception of the GTA 6. The sequel will most likely be coming with an online mode but it probably won’t be as bad as GTA 5 Online.

Well, that’s what we think. We’re crossing our fingers that Rockstar wouldn’t ruin GTA 6’s single player mode as that’s essentially where the fun really is.

  • It’s easy to make money in this game. Everybody just wants an easy, end-all solution to get getting millons in seconds. If you are actually playing the game, e.g. heists, CEO content, motorcycle clubs, etc. then it’s easy to turn a profit in this game.

  • This article misses the mark on multiple fronts. You can be assured that GTA6 will have micro transactions included. You can also be sure that the forthcoming Red Dead 2 will have some sort of the same. In 2016 during a review of documents for Rockstar NA President Leslie Benzies lawsuit it was discovered that as of 2016 the game had made over $500M in “micro transactions.” These transactions post a practical 100% profit since there is minimal service required to administer the Shark Cards. As a shareholder of Rockstar I would be upset by the elimination of such a massive revenue stream and you can be assured management feels the same. Now I’m also a player, level 258. I’ve put in over 500 hrs on GTA Online. I have spent a few hundred of real money on Shark Cards and I have spent countless hours grinding special cargo in empty lobbies. For my money the Shark Cards are the way to go. They allow a player to actually enjoy GTA Online and all the missions and options therein without the main parameter for play being how much money per hour can you grind from the activity. As to the “fairness” aspect nothing in GTA Online is fair because nothing in real life is fair. GTA Online mimics the real world and in the real world those with disposable funds enjoy a much more carefree and enjoyable GTA life experience (real or simulated) while those players not able to just pay to play will have to grind just like they grind their day jobs. I believe Johnny Depp said it best, “money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a boat to sail right up to it.” It’s only fair GTA Online let you buy the boat I mean yacht as well.
