1. Go to Midnight Launch at local Gamestop.
2. Buy Special Edition game and Limited Edition guide.
3. Upload a picture of both on my Facebook, entitled "u jelly?". (Gloating, I know)
4.Admire blueprint map and lithograph during install.
5. Play 6 hours of campaign, as it's a school night.
6. Eventually clear campaign, free roam for a while and then move onto Online.

First off, I would like to say that I have been a frequent browser of these forums but finally decided to sign up just to post a few things.

Anyway, the first thing I'm going to do (aside from the most likely obligatory first mission), is going to take a bicycle and start from the bottom of the map in South Los Santos or the docks and ride my bike all the way to the top of the map, maybe near Paleto or wherever this most northern part of the map will be. Either way I can't wait to see what kind of things I will see and what might happen with all the stuff R* has put into this amazing game.

Remember not all characters will be available from the start.

Find out where they live anyways, snoop to what's happening around their residence.

I'll complete the first mission that you'll presumably be forced into, like all previous GTAs, and then I'll start to free roam. One of the first things I want to do is grab a bicycle and see how they handle. I'm curious if you can still bunnyhop like in San Andreas, or do anything else with them, such as tricks. Something else I want to do right away is get my hands on a convertible and see how the top-lowering mechanic works. How do you control it? My guess would be using one of the analog stick buttons (L3, R3). I'll probably then take the convertible out of the city and see how long it takes to drive all the way across the map, since it's all open from the beginning. I want to get a good sense of how massive this world truly is, while also getting a good sampling of all the radio stations. I'm sure I'll get distracted on my journey by many things and I'll probably end up dying in some sort of hilariously random way. It's GTA, after all. Damn, I can't wait for September 17th.

I assume Michael will be the first character you can use.

First thing I'm gonna do is find the tour bus and soak in a nice relaxing guided tour of Los Santos. Michael will most likely be the first character you play as so I'm guessing the tour bus won't be too far from his home.

After that, I'm just gonna take things nice and easy. Talk to everyone, check out all the scenery, play the occasional mission here and there and do lots of side activities. I've waited too long for this game and I'm not going to rush the experience.

Never want to rush the missions too much, this game is like a fine wine and must be enjoyed at a slow, leisurely pace. I will likely play a couple missions, then explore the city (every possible detail), and spend a fair share of time harassing innocent pedestrians simply because I can and it's fun. Also excited to see the level of AI, how police react to you, how challenging they are to evade, etc...Getting these things down will help familiarize me with the game before I get too far into it. It would likely take me a month or longer to finish the main story, simply because I am a completionist and I like to do it all and see it all along the way.

I'll complete the first couple of missions then free roam a bit. Then go back to the missions. That will be pretty much how I play the entire game. Then I'll play online.

I had a dream some time ago, driving along on an overpass, and looking over saw subway cars. Well we don't have overpasses and we're just getting into mass transit and thought, what the hell was that, then I played GTA IV, well holy shyt.

So recently I had a dream where Michael gets up, heads to the kitchen, pours himself a bowl of cereal and then hears the family start in. My imagination fills in the rest of this when I wake up.

I can imagine the game starting like this. It is then with the family din that he decides to see his therapist and after he leaves the good Doctor, he sits out on a bench feeling sorry for himself and this is when he meets Franklin and Lemar. And it takes off from there. Franklin repos a car? They did say from the get go this game takes off. Trevor not far to follow. Where they meet up I can only speculate. But I imagine it takes place rather quick.

I also wonder about this therapist. Serious spoiler alert Will the game end with him saying, "I think you need a new therapist?" As I am typing this I am hearing Queen in my head.

Just some random thoughts.
