Personally, I really liked GTA Online's character creation system. I feel that it's about getting back to reality, and keeping GTA 5 in the forerunner seat for the most realistic game. For example - when your parents made you, did a doctor hand them a default avatar and a set of adjusting sliders? Nope. They had to be a little more "hands-on" and "in-depth" (sorry, couldn't resist!) The idea of genealogy just adds another layer of realism. Now, I will admit that there are many kinks to be worked out. Rockstar needs to smooth the visuals and fix the tools. Plus, some new models for grandparents would be nice. Simply put, everyone's starting to look the same, because no one wants to be fugly. A few extra grandparents (that players would actually use!) would help with diversity. You might say the gene pool could use a little chlorine, lol. Anyway - I'm very fond of the blunt realism. You put these two people together, and they'll certainly make offspring. What's variable is whether or not it's something you want to look at. So, dissatisfied with your avatar's appearance? Play the system! Find what works! I don't know about you, but as a customization junkie, I love making characters. I like to work and evaluate my work until I'd be proud to put my name to my product. I feel that GTA Online gives me a whole new challenge in sculpting my next favorite character.
LMAO Tom said "maybe just for tax purposes, slightly more illegal work than legal work"
AHAHAAHAHA that life
Yes characters are being deleted over and over, Rockstar is fixing on that, they're only humen just give them time. Should be a patch tomorrow. On the side not yea your character looks fugly but it sure beats gta4 "creation" style. It's weird but it's different, but who gots time to look at urself when you're killing and robbing people!
On another note.. Just wondering if anyone has had their characters deleted over and over? Last night I played for hours (ranked to lvl 10 and had $30,000). logged back on this morning and it told me to make a new character, lost everything. So I chalked it up as a loss and made a new one. Just recently got back to lvl8 and my game froze after a mission! Logged back on and everything is gone again! 15+ hours of game play for nothing. It makes my start over and watch the intro to online every time! :-\
I randomise until my charecter doesn't look like michael jackson, this realy is shit, the person who came up with this concept should be shot in the foot
I was so goddamn excited for custom GTA characters. Pfft.
While it's certainly a new, interesting approach, if they were going to go this route they need far more options, and less fugly ones at that. We've been trying to make a foxy black woman for a half hour now. Every woman looks transgender (which is fine, just not what I'm going for), and double that for every non-white woman. I actually find it insulting on a number of levels. Worst ever in a game this century, no exaggeration.
This is the stupidest/shittiest
character creator made, I have seen in any game. Perhaps the worst ever in a video game.......
"chipface-z This is the stupidest character creator ever made. I'd say R* should learn a lesson from Saints Row ". I agree!
This looks like a fun way to spice up character creation...look forward to trying it out when I eventually fork out for GTA5
This is the shittiest character creator I have seen in any game ever, it's so fucking stupid and unnecessary. I was thoroughly facepalming through the whole process.
This is the stupidest character creator ever made. I'd say R* should learn a lesson from Saints Row but they could learn a less from any other game with customizable characters and it would be better than this piece of shit.
Folks on twitch have been playing online all day and it looks like a blast so at least we know it actually works. Just keep trying i guess.
This has to be one of the worse Char creations I have ever seen. I fought so hard just to make my char look half way decent. Not only that but they said we could be decendant of Morrison from RR and no option for that either.. just pure junk UI.
You know when you went into Oblivion, just to make the worst looking character possible? GTA V does it by default.
Oh I know this Character Creation very well...Considering that's the only part I've seen of this damn game! EVERYTIME I get going on that first mandatory racing mission, I get booted. Seriously, I knew there would be problems but to not even be able to play the first mission, THat's frustrating!
I actually kinda like the character creator...IDK maybe if the ancestors were all named like from Rockstar's other games and GTA series it would actually seem more interesting, IDK though the son of Catalina and Carl Jonson would be one insane guy.....on the other hand the child of Ken Rosenberg and Tanya [from GTA5] would be all twacked lol I mean the possibilities are pretty endless.....
I like this style character creator because even with a ton of hands on you still get a random character.....I mean it beats getting a generic character and not being able to change his/her look.....
@jacobg8857 saits row character creation is shit aswell
@Kinguard73 It's shitty, that's right, but you can choose John Marston as your dad. You just have to go to dad and press Y to get the 'special dad' option....est voila.
@Tee_Mal this comment makes no sense
wut do u expect when a game sells 800 mill?
Seriously this is nothing new in teh www. Shit happens all the tiem with bug launches
Just have to wait for the PC version. I'm sure the modding community will expand on it tenfold.
IDK I have been playing about with it and you can create the look you want just not as rapid, takes more time.
@HonorOfGod That's not very nice is it?
@HonorOfGod Only joking, I am going to play Rayman Legends.
@HonorOfGod I'm reporting you.
