Content might feel scarce at the moment, though personally I still feel like I haven't seen half of what the city has to offer, but the number of buildings which you can't get into but are getting to be robbed - like casinos for example - is too big too ignore.
Playing with friends improves the experience ten fold, as usual. I think so long as they do heists right when they come along there will be plenty of fun to be had for a while yet.
Personally I will be heading on for some more mayhem, who's with me?
I'm definately with you, loving online even though I have a few niggles with it. I think the detractors here, claiming there is little to do etc should give it some time regardless of how long it was in development. Red Dead Redemption's online mode grew and grew and GTA being their bigger IP will inevitably go from strength to strength. The upcoming DLC, from what a friend at R* North has told me is definately going to be worth the wait.
There are some little improvements to Online I'd like to see.
Firstly, in single player I can run, jump then 'bail' for comedic purposes, by tapping Green, then Blue then Red. I do this to see painful looking falls down stairs and to flop on unsuspecting sunbathers etc much to the amusement of my girlfriend. This doesn't work Online which is a real shame because I'm finding it hard to justify the time I'm spending playing it to her, if I fall half way down Mount Chilliad after 'tripping' on a rock she'll let me play for another hour!
I want to be able to run in my apartment, I run from console to toilet and back again all the time, my GTA apartment is bigger than my real home so it takes time getting around. So running as well as jump and use my fists, a punch up between mates in my apartment (ala Red Dead's lobby) would be hilarious.
Also paintball guns in the apartments would be cracking fun..... as would being able to arm wrestle, play darts, pool, poker etc. The apartments at the moment aren't as fun filled as they could or should be. It would also be great that as a host of a house party, I can eject someone if I think they are getting out of hand.... i.e. through a window.... I'd give them a parachute first!!
Also being drunk in Campaign and Online is not as good as GTA4 or RDR, I used to love having to control the walking to not fall over, was a little disappointed how steady footed your are when drunk. To that point I think it'd be great to be able to take a 6pack or bottle of whisky out with you so you can get drunk anywhere, i.e. somewhere where comedic drunken injury is very, very likely. Are you seeing a theme here?
