| Maybe early on a connected guy finances one of your jobs only he ties a large marker to it and you're supposed to go give him his taste of the action immediately but you decide to hold on to it for a little while longer or spend it all together. At first you receive a few suggestive phone calls then the next day while your out driving around, you start pulling into the drive thru at the Burger Shot and your windshield explodes as a sniper calmly and casually starts ripping off high caliber rounds from the rooftop across the street. You're at too awkward an angle to fire back so you have to get out of the car and scramble around the building to avoid getting ventilated. Everything you were about to do has gone out your shattered window and now you have to deal with this guy for the next five to ten minutes. A gentleman who knows you're coming, is well armored and very accurate, a savage and calculating wolf who will pursue you vehemently if you try to run.|
Sounds like a blast.
Understatement of the year
Honestly though, that sounds incredible. Just the thought that there's someone out there who's bigger and badder than yourself, his only objective is to spray your brains across the floor, is just awesome. I like the idea that you'd never know when he might strike.
Back to the original subject of money, I think it was ThePinkFloydSound* who once suggested actually earning our money through doing regular jobs via the taxi or ambulance missions. In fairness, his idea was aimed more towards the roleplay side of things in that this is something that would be done at the very start of the game and then the character realizes that during these tough times crimes pays far better. I love that idea and will probably do it myself, but in terms of earning money it could be a brilliant way to help us get that little extra so we can buy the weapons or armour ourselves.
Actually, saying that, what would your be stance on armour and health? Do we pay or do we get the free pick-ups? Apologies if it's been discussed before, I'm too lazy to read through these posts
