Friday Night Fights: Grand Theft Auto Online

Game with the Dtoid community

It’s finally here! 

The game you couldn’t stop talking about when it was first revealed to the world. The game that could potentially dethrone any multiplayer-centric game on Xbox Live or the PSN. No, this isn’t another Call of Duty or Battlefield game, this isn’t Halo or Gears of War. This… is… Grand Theft Auto Online!

You can finally take all of your debauchery, crime-spree having, murderous rampage out for the whole world to see, because they’ll be doing all that sorta stuff, and then some right along with you! Isn’t that exciting?!

Just in case you missed it before, Rockstar has graciously set up our very own Destructoid Crew, which you can join here. If that’s not your thing, you can join one of our community created crews by following this link (Destructoid FNF Crew).

I won’t take up any more of your time, we all know you’d rather be playing games anyway, so check out the list of hosts/games below and go be social with some fellow Dtoider’s!

Let’s get it on!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!
