“You play video games? You must have no friends!” – every ignorant tool ever
We’ve often reported on Rockstar’s stellar handling of community involvement. They’ve been an exemplar of engaging their player base with GTA V and keeping them engaged, through the frequent organisation of contests and competitions, through the posting of fan-made missions or art on their news platform, through to GTA Online crews.
These crews function much like guilds and clans do in other games, namely they are groups of varying size, composed of like-minded players who assist each other, play with one another and compete with rival crews in GTA Online. These crews might be centered around roleplay, requiring their members to always be in-character and follow a style guide, they may be hardcore competitive crews where members need to clock a certain number of hours every week/day and always play to win, there are casual crews with no obligations, there are crews for people who in real life share a hobby or profession, and the list goes on and on. These are small communities within the greater GTA V community, allowing players to forge new friendships regardless of how far away their crew members are physically.
One particular crew called the “Hillbilly Agenda”, themed around the outdoors, has a leader who went above and beyond the call of duty. KnoxNerd has created real, physical custom GTA V themed number plates for his crew members, and delivered them personally all over the United States. Most recently he ventured to Oregon, where he and his crew member attended a logging expo, in keeping with the theme of their crew. KnoxNerd has traveled far and wide all across the States to get these one-of-a-kind plates to his crew.
Are you guys part of a GTA Online crew? How dedicated and loyal are you?
