    Are RockStar lazy

    I play GTA4 and i been thinking is rockstar lazy because of all the glitchers there must over 100s glitchers but the glitchers have not been patched is because the game is so big or they dont care and can't be bothered about it i no the game is old but will GTA5 be the same i just hope they take time in making GTA5 coz really like games that have tuck years to make

    I doubt it. I vaguely remember articles about some Rockstar workers being overworked and forced to stay for unpaid overtime or some ridiculous stuff like that.

    GTA4 is like 4 years old and they've been pumping out a bunch of games since then (yeah I know Rockstar is made of multiple companies). They have much more important things to do than fix glitches in the multiplayer of a 4 year old game.

    Just be glad they haven't just shut the multiplayer down like what happened with Metal Gear Online.

    Reminds me of the COD 4 glitchers and what they used to do. It took Infinity Ward months to finally patch everything up, and this was 2 years after the game was released.

    its kind of funny to me but if there wasnt glitche in GTA , then it wouldnt be a GTA game, it's fun to do crazy stuff and cheat sometimes. Not all games are perfect, i think there gearing up for a 2nd trailer cuz they changed the website a little and took some off and now they have GTAV up on the 3 games that are featured. so stay tuned.....

    Rockstar is anything but lazy. They're probably the most respected third party developer out there. All of their games are gold.

    Yeah, Sam and Dan Houser have some really talented people in their studios. I've never encountered anyone glitching in GTA IV's multiplayer.

    Based on the issues you're stating and your analysis: No, they're not lazy.

    Generally you won't see any developer going after issues once the game is slowing down in popularity. Primarily due to the fact that there's no money to be made.

    If this game had a healthy subscription (which it doesn't), you will see patches and bug fixes.

    It's better for them to put money towards their next release than worry about this one.

    Also, this game is not online heavy so people won't shy away from GTAV based on this issue.

    Only ones I really remember are:

    People who go inside buildings ( like the airport and the building near the heli's)

    and helicopters going under ground.

    I only started to run into these like after 2 years the game was out ( it happened before, but the times i ran into them was very insignificant, like 1 in ever 20 room i entered)

    plus i'm sure R* was too busy with games like RDR, max payne 3 and GTA V.


    All in all, I never really seen IV as a glitchy or bad made game, it ran pretty good.

    guys, I think SHAZZMAZZ is mainly talking about multiplayer glitches

    Yes, there are definitely some game breaking glitches in the multiplayer.
    - some people receiving invites 2 hours after they have been sent
    - Certain people not being able to join certain people (for absolutely no logical reason)
    Those are the worst I have seen.

    Yes, they certainly were lazy when it comes to multiplayer and net code.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    But in order to determine that they're lazy, you have to look at how much work they had to do.

    Seems to me GTAIV took a long time to develop. Technically, you can't say that they're lazy with the Multiplayer because they may not have had enough time or it may not have been the focus of their development.

    A lot of variables here. Budget, focus, time, target etc.

    So i.e. you'd have to call Polyphony Digital for not including a fully-fledged Nascar mode. We know that's not true.

    It's their first major attempt at multiplayer with the GTA franchise as we've come to know it. There's going to be glitches are errors, it just happens. As has also been pointed out, the game is old. I'd say most devs stop really fixing a title between a year and 2 after release. Not many keep supporting it as long as 4 years down the line. They have bigger and better things to put their time and resources into now.

    And for the love of christ will you learn how to use punctuation and proper spelling. It'll make it a whole lot easier for people to understand just what you're talking about instead of a jumbled mess of incoherent thoughts.

    I don't class those things you list as glitches I class them as bugs, glitches as with exploits usually occur in gameplay and to gain the player an advantage somehow be it in speed, height, money/credits, what ever.

    If people keep the glitches to themselves then they do not spread and the devs do not know about them meaning they cannot fix them.


    Things not working correctly ar just bugs in my eyes but it seems to be changing along with the term "LAG" it used to only mean slowdown in internet connection but now it seems to associated with low framerate.
