So I made a second character for the "Gang Life" snapmatic entry, as my main character wouldn't really fit. Things I learned...
1. When you start, Jesus the phone never stops ringing!
2. Being a 120 rank, everybody in session tries to take a piece out of you! My main guy is 719 rank and I generally get left alone
3. I kind of had fun armed with just a handgun and a BMX, I'm tempted to play on with him for a bit. Gives the thing a whole new perspective.
I recently did something similar for Double Pulse's GTA Online series. I made a middle aged male character that ended up looking kind of like Double's dad (lol).
It really was refreshing having only a handgun, running from the cops, grabbing their pump action, and driving random getaway cars until they were crumpled balls of tinfoil brought back single player vibes. It really provides perspective into what GTA Online has become.
