GTA Online - Zero interest?

Why is there no interest for this game on here?  Because sessions are limited to 30 players?  Is it awful?  Do you just drive around and beat the shit out of pedestrians?  Is the population dead?

    Is it a very competitive type MMO?  Nothing worse than one of those that can't stop cheaters.

    Its "impossible" to actually play with friends.... you cant create a party, and even when youve spent 20mins getting in the same game as your buddy... once its done ull be in 2 separate games again and have to go through the whole hassle again.      That being said, when in a game lobby with a buddy sometimes ull be in opposite teams too.  its a fucking joke of an online game

    Don't own GTA V, no.  Man, this doesn't sound promising.

    If you dont mind playing pretty bad characters in a video game the single player game is worth the purchase.

    My son hasn't had any problems getting in groups with his friends on PS4 or PC. He doesn't play much PC anymore and there is a lot of cheating and asshattery, but if you want to go in for some crazy stuff public can be fun. Your single player stuff is separate from your online stuff. So you're not going to lose anything that way. Also you don't lose your cars or anything in multiplayer if you get killed or they get blown up.

    It's FFA pvp with a crazy modern twist with little to no lasting consequences. It's just for fun and stuff.

    You can trick your cars, collect military vehicles, steal them, go on a maniacal sociopathic rampage, or whatever. The only thing is you never really play a good guy. You're always the criminal murdering innocents and wreaking havoc. At best you could just be a thief and less of a murderer.

    Forgot to mention you can make a private game and just invite friends. There are some really challenging missions (group content). I remember him doing some string of heists for an achievement where you can't die or you fail the achievement. It's about 12 hours total worth of heists and such.

    And if being the bad guy isn't your thing try Watchdogs if you haven't already as its pretty similar on the single player but you can lean towards good or bad.

    Got GTA Online a month ago. It had its moments.

    - You cannot join as group a race. One has to be lucky to be the host, close matchmaking and invite friend and or Crew members.
    - Terrible balance, new players don't stand a chance to defend themselves. Players come at you with tanks, armored cars, explosive snipers, rpgs, helicopters and planes. Custom cars give players an advantage during races where new players don't have those cars. I know, custom cars can be disabled, but for some reason the host always likes his advantage.
    - Making money needs money to get you started.
    - Making money is a grind, especially solo.
    - Terrible anti-hack, apparently the latest hack trick is to flag other players as hackers. Instead of giving players modded money to flag them.
    - Terribe customer support.
    - For a game with Auto in its title there sure are a lot of flying vehicles in game. You hardly see anyone travel from A to B in a car. Steal a car? Why drive it back? We use a Cargobob helicopter to airlift it to the warehouse.
    - Did I mention modders?

    I did like the time I spend with my crew members. Races are fun, driving and owning the cars you like can be very rewarding. Too bad most cars you would like, won't perform great in races, because each class has its top 1 or top 2 cars you must drive to make a chance to win. Sure people will say, a good driver in a bad car can beat a bad driver in a good car, but in races with 10+ there's always someone with skills equal to yours in the best car. It's a fun game to play when you manage to stay away from modders and play it casually with no big car purchases.
