    Game has come a long way. I first played it when it first launched. Those were cutting edge graphics back then.

    LOL @Octagon7711 - GTA Online really has turned into the MMO (not MMORPG, mind you) that I wish more MMORPG fans played. It's surprisingly deep and fun.

    Hey is this the same game as GTA5? Last time I played Multiplayer in GTA 5 I was getting instantly killed by Modders using hacks.

    MMO developers should be taking notes from these guys. Rockstar gets the modern mmo crowd. For the demogrpahic that loves GTA 5 and wants to coop or pvp they've provided a fun playground to do that with.

    It's the heart of what makes an mmo to me. They could take it further if they wanted to, but their fans seem pretty happy with this format. It works.

    its funny to me seeing people on this site who killed me for calling games like GTA Online or Destiny MMO now come around and say "MMO this" or "MMO that" when talking about these games. Not saying anything but its funny.

    Two different groups of people is my guess. There are only two people in this thread who've called GTA an mmo and my guess is neither criticized you for using the term MMO with D2. Am I wrong on that?

    While I don't consider D2 an MMO in the traditional sense of the game it does play a lot like one and meets enough of those qualities that its about the same of my purposes. If and when Bungie expands chat then it will feel much more so.

    I love GTA Online. The lobby system kills it a little for me.

    You can get brilliant lobbies, where people either do their thing or clash around objectives as intended. In many cases though, you get either hackers or people who kill you repeatedly only to try piss you off.

    I had good fun playing in private lobbies with friends. But the new content requires a public lobby. Presumably to make it more risk-reward. But to me it just ends up being a lobby lottery.

    This is my problem too. I love GTA Online but getting randomly paired up with hackers and team killers every time has gotten ridiculous.
