    GTA 5 and GTA Online

    Any fans out there?

    I know the game has been out for a long time but I am late to the party and have been playing GTA 5 for about a year and GTA online for about 6 months.

    Recently have restarted GTA 5 as I didn't do any of investments that are linked to the Assassination Missions (Lester and Franklin). Just completed my first investment and made some good money!

    On GTA online I'm at RP 51. I own an office, vehicle warehouse for import/export, a motorcycle club house, counterfeit cash factory and an apartment with a garage that'll store approx. 6 cars.

    Only thing about GTA Online is I play solo which limits my progress apparently? A decent crew would be ideal

    I play gta 5 on and off. I just go on the normal story mode. I don't know what you mean by investments even though I have done some assassinations.... The game glitched for me mission wise and it won't let me do anymore. Now I just drive round randomly running ppl over lol

    Just lol,

    Last video game I played was Lemmings (in 1991? )

    I was talking to some bikers at a meet last year and I was talking about the relative difficulties of getting around Donnington Park circuit. It took me 30 minutes before I realised they hadn't actually ridden it but were talking about "doing it" on a video console lol.

    Start again! The story mode is really good. I'm about 40% into it now that I've started again.

    Before the first lester and franklin assignation you should invest all 3 characters money in betta pharmaceuticals, after the assassination you need to wait for the stock market price to go up and then sell all 3 characters stock, straight after you buy a different stock wait for that go to up and then sell them. Michael started with about $700k and after these 2 investments he's got $2.5 mil .... there's a guide to follow that will make each character by the end of the missions approx $2 billion! It's advised to only do first assignation then wait to do the rest right at the end of the game to have as much money available for the investments. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2...cn-lester-5115

    Classic game!

    PS4 brought me back into games, I stopped playing my PS2 around 2006!

    Are you sure you don't play candy crush Jonny

    My girlfriend used to love it, but she gave up ultimately as everything became real world money expensive and she got tired of dodging missile armed flying Deloreans.

    You can put a price on people's heads online though. Apparently it helps a bit.

    Grand Turismo is pretty damn good I'm my opinion. It's quite hard although there are some aids to help you learn like assisted braking.

    I'm now playing it through for the 3rd time on PC, having played it on Xbox 360 and PS4 previously. Still awesome

    GTA Online launched open wheel racing recently, I must say it’s really good fun. As the race progresses there is tyre degradation so pit stops are vital for optimal grip. Cornering speed takes a while to get used to as these things grip very well with fresh rubber, can go full throttle around corners like no other car on the game.

    Anyone else playing GTA Online these days?
