GTA Online worth playing?

Grand Theft Auto Online, believe it or not, is celebrating its ninth year running in 2022. That means the game is just under a year away from delivering a decade of nonsensical GTA fun. That's a difficult feat for any game, but given how long it's been since it was released, you're probably wondering if it's still worth diving into and playing GTA Online? Well, you'll be happy to hear that the answer is a resounding yes! However, if you're still skeptical read on to see exactly why GTA Online is still a relevant and ever-evolving game.


Why GTA Online is Worth Playing in 2022!


  • Player Count

The most crucial aspect of keeping any online game relevant and fun is by having a consistent and engaged player base. Especially a game like GTA Online which lives and breaths off of playing with and against others. You'll be relieved to know, that on PC, GTA Online still sees no less than 80,000 active players a day. And you can roughly assume the same, if not more for the console versions of the game.


  • Amount of Content

GTA Online's missions, bank heists, car chases, and practically all of the little games that make up the online game's overall content are what make it enjoyable. Without the addition of new content over time, the game probably wouldn't have its long-standing career.

So, in short, GTA Online has never had more content than it does now, with everything from heists to play and vehicles to buy to even running your own business or nightclub. The whole spectrum of content is loaded with something fresh to do and experience at all times.


  • Crews

The last point that might still have you hesitant to play GTA Online this late is that you won't have any friends to play with. You also may be worried you're a bit behind on grinding levels and earning cash. Well, Rockstar has got you covered with Crews.

These are player-created Social Clubs that place you in a group with other gamers in the club, which can have up to 1,000 members. They're super inviting and have sort of created a turf war in GTA Online, which adds to the fun. However, they're also great for earning rewards, leveling, and making cash.
