| Well, consider it this way.|
What if you have to wait two days for something to happen?
Unless you just save eight times in a row ( cheap), that means you have to play the game for two hours just to finish that mission.
Which, if you have nothing better to do, gets sort of boring. Or, if you have something better to do, means you can't play it.
I'm all for realism, but waiting is NOT my kind of fun.
I like the old way best. It's true that it has some major realism issues, but 48 minutes or 1 hour isn't that much better. >.> And since days pass more frequently, it's easier to hit time-based missions and such at the right time. Compared to: Oh, you have to come back tomorrow, waste an hour (Again, I'm not using save time-warping because it sort of rings up as cheating IMO)
That is why you can do multiple missions at a time. This means that the mission you have in two days is just something on your schedule to do. Meanwhile you do more missions at hand. I have a feeling we will never get bored in GTA IV.
