Come on bro, you're being a bit ignorant and also biased at the same time. It appears Stingray's assessment of you is accurate right now. Like he said, there are many things in GTA that are not always relevant to the story, so your point really holds no weight. On top of that, gang wars were still relevant to the story, because they would have easily fitted into Franklin's story anyway, because Franklin has a gang background, that is that, there is nothing else to it. I struggle to see why you constantly fail to see the clear logic in this. Why not just say you don't like or wanna see gang wars in the game like Lucchese and those guys ? You're better off just saying that rather than make bullsh*t excuses for Rockstar not including a popular feature like gang wars in the game.
I would love drug wars in the story. Why would I not want them in?
Gang wars would not easily fit into the story, because of how the story was told. I just explained this in my last comment to you. The way R* told it, it'd feel piled on just for being in the game. I'd rather have an in-depth Gang War activity, not one just for the sake of being one.
If they just dropped Gang Wars into the story as it is, it'd feel weird, like it's not supposed to be there. Franklin's always saying how he hates this life, and yet he's continuing it!? Why!? Especially when he has it in with Michael! It's the same situation that was with TBoGT (At least to me).
Now, if R* made a Gang Wars DLC, which adds Gang Wars into the game with a story behind it, that'd be awesome, because it would make sense.
Also, there's this idea, courtesy of Woggleman:
"Drug wars would have made much sense with Trevor."
This. This exactly.
And then even better: Drug Wars with Trevor, with Franklin helping along. Now, why would this be any different that Gang/Drug Wars with just Franklin? This actually makes sense.
Franklin's helping Trevor because they're buds. Put Michael in there sometimes and there goes all the complaints about Drug Wars. And the best part? It wouldn't need a DLC, because it already fits into the story.
"Come on bro, you're being a bit ignorant and also biased at the same time."
How? By saying I want activities to make sense with the story?
Let's say Michael, throughout the story, complains about how much he hates...Bowling.
Would you see Michael bowling as an activity? No, it makes no sense! I mean, Michael was constantly complaining about it, so why is he doing it!?
Same situation with Drug/Gang Wars. (Yes, I know it could happen. Anything can happen. R* should've written the story better).
You could make bowling available, just not with Michael. And that's where the idea I presented (Thanks Woggleman) before comes in.
"Like he said, there are many things in GTA that are not always relevant to the story"
I wouldn't say many. I'm fairly certain, that in GTA 4 at the very least, there's very little, if any, activities that don't relate to the story. (I can't check right now, the map is being recoded).
Also, small activities, such as bowling and darts, don't need a reason. They're a very small activity that's just used to put more activities in the game.
Gang/Drug Wars aren't a small activity like that. They gotta have a reason. They can't just be thrown on, because that would make them stupid.
"On top of that, gang wars were still relevant to the story"
They weren't, though. Could they make sense with Franklin? Maybe. But the only think Franklin does that touches gangs is the first couple of his missions with Lamar dragging him into it. They definitely weren't relevant to the overall story.
"because they would have easily fitted into Franklin's story anyway"
Again, not easy, not unless you don't care about things not making good sense.
"I struggle to see why you constantly fail to see the clear logic in this."
I don't. Just because someone has a gang background, doesn't mean they're gonna get pulled back into it. If someone has a background of smoking crack (And they're getting away from it/got away from it), do you think they're gonna go to a crackhouse because their friend told them to? Probably not, but it could happen. Probably not, though. This is what I'm saying.
Capitalist Communist: I have a bunch of complaints about the game. I hate the story, for one. There's not enough to do in the Desert, for two. I just don't constantly spew it like a lot of people.
Also, I only actually fight people when they're just spewing hate with no rhyme or reason, and are unreasonable. Like the comment you quoted, I have discussions with reasonable people. People like SonofLiberty, Official General, etc.
I mean, God, this game isn't even my GOTY. You people think I love this game more than I actually do.
I only defend it as much as I do because of all the unreasonable hate coming from members.
