FIrst of all i'm not saying it is good or bad, neither i'm accusing them, this is just what i feel and after 25hours of online played i found out something.
I'm level 18 right now and i'm finding it really hard to stack money. Not impossible but kinda hard, if you still want to have fun and free roam.
1. Everything is so expensive, i mean 10 000 for a tattoo... 40 of these and you get the best apartment... (with 50000 in real life you could ink your whole family in real life )
2.There is no logic when you loose money, putting it in the bank is useless i feel because when you die you loose from both stacks (cash and bank)
3.An option where you could take your money in cash in a bag from the bank to your place (where it is safe) and be vulnerable from point A to B could be nice don't you think??
Missions are sometimes so hard it feels like it is scripted that you are going to die, with gangbangers aiming from 3km and hitting you, and let's not talk about the police...
It's kinda hard to have fun in free roam and not care about your money, i started a session with 50 000 and 1h later i had 30 000, it just goes so fast with mods, healthcare, ammo, clothes...
Again, i really love this experience i really can't stop playing, but i feel that they planned some thing for us to buy cash saying "mmm okay 13$ are not going to kill me" but multiply it by the millions who play it.
If you're still here thanks for reading and feel free to tell me what do you think about the "money mechanic" in the game.
