** Another one comes in the form of accidentally hitting a NPC while playing golf in Story Mode, as documented by [[http://www.cracked.com/article_21604_the-6-most-hilarious-glitches-in-popular-video-games.html Cracked]]. If you hit a NPC, not only will the police come, but your character will suddenly freeze up and be unable to move, allowing the police an easy target to pick off your character. It gets annoying because the NPC has the tendency to wander in front of you when you're just going to hit the ball, and the game penalizes you for dying by $500 off your character.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The anti-cheat is just awful at detecting painfully obvious mods that [[Griefer griefers]] utilize to absolutely ruin everyone's experience in Online, but it, [[SkewedPriorities for some reason]], jumps at the chance to ban players forced to take money from other modders, even though Rockstar said players would never get banned for having illegitimate money forced on them. The Further Advances in Finance and Felony update to the anti-cheat brought about many more bans... on innocent players because the anti-cheat is now [[KnightTemplar overzealous]] and bans players who use ''anything'' that hooks, no matter how innocuous the program is.

** F''ormation Flying'' was bad, but ''Ground Level'' from ''Online'' Flight School can have you yanking your hair out, speaking gibberish and throwing your gamepad/keyboard/mouse out the window. The quest requires you to fly low under bridges and along structures, less than a meter off ground. On a rather fast aircraft. With lots of sharp turns. With controls that don't stabilize themselves. Those without quick reflexes need not apply.

Those without quick reflexes need not apply. [[note]]The level is also buggy as hell- when launched from the flight school, the plane has the tendency to get stuck in mid-air after the introductory video plays, and the only way to get it to proceed is to reset by pressing the abort button and retrying. Also, the averaging height counter doesn't reset between tries, and collision with water is bugged to heck and back that even touching the water for a split second is enough to have the game announce that you've destroyed the aircraft[[/note]]

** Formation Flying from ''Online'' Flight School. Imagine [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas Freefall]], but it a jet that loves to fall out of formation thanks to the jetwash from the other three jets. And the final portion. Which requires you to stay in formation, pull a half-loop, and fly upside down. Which basically requires knowing how to reverse the controls in a split second or be sent flying away from the formation and failing.

** PortingDisaster: However, it's still very buggy to say it came out with over a year of delays. For example, on various cards and processors, any online character you make will have black stripes running down their model like a referee shirt for no reason at all[[note]]This was eventually revealed to be a bug in the [=NVidia=] drivers. Sadly however, the driver update that fixes it ''isn't compatible with all computers, especially those that have still have an embedded Tesla-family GPU ([=GeForce=] 8000 and 9000, and GTX 100, 200 and 300 series, along with the GTX 405)''[[/note]]. There's also the reintroduction of [[ScrappyMechanic Rockstar Social Club]] with barely any improvement. Live somewhere like a college campus with controlled internet access? You might not be able to play this game.
