Single Player Vs Online

Now that both single player and online has been out for quite some time, which one do you think is better? I prefer single player myself.

Single Player. Once you've got 100% though, there is nothing to go back to.

Hmmm..

Great single player, but once at 100% not really much more can be done.

Multiplayer can be fun, but the developers approached it from the wrong angle to begin with. Full price retail game where it has a free to play microtransaction angle. WTF?

Still, I think for replayability and just plain fun with friends, I'll vote MP. There is (hopefully) a lot of content still coming.

Single player by far. The online was good but didn't hold up to my expectations I guess.

There are the 4 ufo's and the Mt. Chiliad conspiracy. There has to be a way to unlock the jetpack. Or at least FIND it. Almost 1000 pages on GTAForums and its still going strong.

Pull all that off and I'll tip my hat and show them some respect. For now it's hard for me to do that. Harsh? Maybe. We're talking about a game that made more money than.. well anything.

Hmmm.. Personally I don't think there is anymore to the alien thing (unless it gets patched in/DLC) or a useable jetpack. If I'm wrong, that is a good thing though!

Its a nice diversion to see if there actually is anything more to the mural. A lot of folks have gotten off on wild tangents but the mural does look like some sort of clue...

I'm not really 100% certain, my post was just being hopeful. Also, it has gone too long without someone spilling the secret, so I agree that there can't be anything more to the alien conspiracy unless it gets DLC added in.

I know for a fact the shitfest in online will NOT be fixed by February though.

The online is still a mess. So many modded games going around, it's not even worth trying.

Started a random match and it was modded. I got punished for it, even though I didn't get an invite and join the match knowing who it was from.

Might play through the SP again. Even that is boring, but at least it's something.

As long as my buddy is playing this then I enjoy online better.

There is a ton of games to enjoy and I'm a level 180 or something like that and I haven't been in a modded game yet.

Singleplayer, because Trevor is just awsome. But I have to admit, just like in GTA IV, there is not much to do after you have 100% completion. But it is still nice to fly arround in LS/BC and to see the nice sunrise.

Can't wait for story DLC and hope that we can use the casino and maybe have a GTA SA-style heist on the casino.

I did buy this game for the single player first, remembering the online of GTA 4 which I didn't like much. But the online of GTA 5 is very good in my opinion and I like it so this is why I think a third option of liking both modes would have been good.

PS. If the online could be fixed it would be better...

Single Player is better obviously, because it has a lot more of content, and the missions are great, but after you finish the mission's and everything else, there's not much to do.

Multiplayer on the other hand, has less activities to do, but because you are playing with other people, the games are always different, the competition makes it fun, the rivalries, friendships, etc.

Single player; I replay heists for hours at a time. The jewelry store, the Peleto score and the big score. That's all I need.

R* has never had a fantastic online experience in their games. GTA Online continues this trend. It has been over a week since the modding has occurred and they have not fixed the problem. I have 100% in the singleplayer and vastly prefer it to Online.

despite the issues with mp, i would have to say it is still the crown jewel of this game. it is exactly like campaign but with other players in the room, you feel immersed in a normal city or a wartorn city, depending on the room. the amount of activities, missions, customization and scale. the multiplayer is hands down where you will get the most replay value.

Tough for me because I loved the story, but it was so easy to 100% that it didn't offer the replay value I was looking for. My vote was for online.

Obviously Single Player.
Why would you want to play Multiplayer with people you don't know just to have every negative thing thrown at you for no reason.

Therein lies your problem. Find yourself a good crew and get to know them, and Online becomes awesome!

See I run with a group of about five or so in an invite only lobby and is have to say online trumps single player hands down in that regard, it's just free roam does get a little boring after awhile though

online is really fun, but it is a bit too much of a grind to get all the good stuff. plus lots of bugs/glitches. SP on the other hand is Epic/Fun
