Fear and Botox in Los Santos – GTA Online and the problem of player vanity
Adventures in character creation and clothing malfunctions.
I can understand why they’ve designed it this way, but GTA Online’s character creation system really is pants. Instead of being able to tweak and twiddle with a creation of your own from the start, you have to instead choose your lineage, selecting grandparents from a preset wheel of various ethnicities and backgrounds which determines your parents’ appearance, and finally your own. Customising a character’s lifestyle will further change how they look, but achieving a result that doesn’t resemble a crayon drawing of a human face that’s been thrown into a washing machine is mostly trial and error.
