Cant really remember top down games ways to save. I usually just caused major mayhems in this game and ran over gangs.. GOURANGA. but this is a nice way to make us spend some of the absurd ammount of money we got. Really interesting feature.
Vice City.. that was an amazing game, but it was made before its time. I remember that helping cops arrest or kill criminals gave us some cash! Proprieties give us nice side missions and a good ammount of cash.
Even having an almost infinite source of money on me, and spending money on almost nothing but missions, i have always been afraid to completely lose it. Worst case scenario, which never happened to me, is to spend all of the money just goofing around and have nothing in our pockets to buy ammo or guns. Running out of money would make me kill for cash - which doesnt give more than 100 bucks - or side missions that never gave us a great ammount of money that we need to buy all of our arsenals back over and over again for instance.
Even knowing that it is almost impossible to spend that much dollars to be broke in game, i prefer paying a relatively small fixed fee of 5000 cash than spendin almost 20000g to arm myself up again.
Unfortunately in IV, there isnt much ways to make lots of fast cash, but stealing cars for Steve, which doesnt give more that 10000 dolars, or side missions, that doesnt make up to everything i loose in my free roam goofing sessions, since im most of the times rampaging and trying to escape the cops - sometimes with no success. This only make me fear a lot more to live in total poverty. The only way to avoind being totally broke is hard working - and after finishing the story, i just want to settle down and play around, dieing infinite times, no worrying about money. That being said, i still fear losing everything it takes me the whole story mode to collect.
On the other hand, in V i have bought all cars, tuned the shish out of em, bought all clothing i wanted and even bought proprieties. Still dieing a lot, still being absurdely millionaire.. i mean, money lost all of it valor on this installment. The dollar wasnt so almighty anymore. This persuit makes little sense.
A difficulty setting would be nice. Tweaking police or weapons damage would be nice! Chosing a more realistic gameplay, or a casual approach would make gta suit the more hardcore fan to the casual gamer, making it a great option for both.
