I tried Grand Theft Auto IV’s online mode once and it didn’t take long before I lost interest. It looks like Rockstar is taking great strides to win folks like me over with Grand Theft Auto Online.
I sincerely hope there is a decathlon style playlist where teams can play through a series of events. We can start with a race on foot, then to cars, then some team death match, some more racing with planes and so on. Not knowing what event is next or where to go next is part of the fun.
Grand Theft Auto Online will be bundled with every copy of Grand Theft Auto V and will launch on October 1st, 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I’ll be waiting for the PC version still.
