i was glad when they took the money away, as it was too much and it removed the need and desire to play the game properly.
however, i do certainly look back on those times with great affection. free mode was incredible.
nobody really bothering with missions, so the lobbies were always full. everyone driving expensive cars, expending ammo without a care, bounties always 9k, mercenaries everywhere.
los santos was like a proper warzone for a few weeks and i absolutely loved it.
i met my benefactor in late december (and thanked him with a 'merry christmas' message) and was filled with seasonal cheer as a result. combined with the brief snow flurries and santa hats, those were fun times, for sure.
i enjoyed rearranging the cars in my garage, simply by purchasing new ones. i even tried giving away modded cars for a while (which didn't work most of the time) and needlessly purchased all of the pegasus vehicles (only use the choppers), simply because i could.
so yes, i do miss those times, but no, i don't want them back...
