Thought this might be a bit fun.:p

 

Pretty simple. Just list the OCD habits you have when you play any GTA game or they could just be common for all the games.

 

-When I start a save of GTA IV I ALWAYS walk to Roman's cab depot as stealing cars at this point feels a bit weird a few hours after just arriving in the country.

 

-I save after every mission or activity I complete to let some time go by.

 

-I change clothes atleast every two days.

 

-I delete emails and text messages because I don't like them clogging things up.

 

-Can't stand not having full health/armour.

 

-I park my cars in the correct position according to what side of the road I'm on.

- I always park my car perfectly in a lot

- Broken windows, dents, et cetera kill me, I always have to get it repaired

-Landing a helicopter as neat as possible, even if I'm landing in a random place like somewhere in Middle Park

-Like you said, full health and armor

-In GTA IV I hate not having max ammo for a weapon, even though it doesn't bug me THAT much

^ I do these too. It's nice to know it's not just me lol.

I have a particularly bad case of legit OCD when it comes to even numbers so I'm aware some of these will be weird.

- I save my game twice after every single mission, each in a different slot. I also keep as many backups as slot space permits. I had a bad experience the first time I played through San Andreas. Fired the game up to do the last few missions and, well, I don't wanna talk about it.

 

- In GTA V I always quick save somewhere safe. Something about saving on a hill or in an area crowded with peds/objects just screams "you're gonna have problems when you load this back up". Granted, GTA is pretty good with that and I've not had an issue (yet), but I've had some sh*tty experiences with other games that have created an anxiety associated with carelessly saving just anywhere.

- I never leave doors open if it's possible to shut them, whether it be a car door, chopper door, plane, building, house, etc. If I get out of a car, I make sure it's shut before I walk away. If I'm getting into a car, the whole San Andreas army or Liberty City police department could be on my ass and I'll take my time making sure it's shut before I take off.

 

- I always enter vehicles through the driver side door. If I absolutely must enter through the passenger side it will bug me until I stop, get out and get back in again properly.

- I pump the brakes an even number of times before coming to a stop.

 

- If I drift around a right hand corner, I have to drift around a left hand corner at the earliest convenience.

- I always reload weapons when I'm done shooting or before I switch to another weapon.

 

- If I notice I have an uneven number of ammo remaining for any weapon, I correct it as soon as I can.

- I can't stand having a damaged vehicle. I know this is one hell of a thing to bug me in a game like GTA but it does bug me horribly. If I get into a fender bender, I detour to the nearest garage. The amount of money I've dumped into Pay n' Sprays/LS Customs for every little bit of damage is a bit disgusting to be honest.

- Due to my problems with even numbers, I don't even f*ck with the stock market lol. I can't handle it.

I'll edit my post as I think of more, I know there's plenty.  :beerhat:

- Saving at 00:00 so I'm not on missions in total darkness
- Parking my vehicles in a nearby alleyway/parking spot/walkway when exiting to trigger a mission/enter a store
- 100% health, 100% body armor, stocking up on ammo before I save for the night
- Slowing down to shut the open driver's door
- Scouting guarded areas from a vantage point before entering (e.g. the cargo ship in Spilling the Beans)
- Switching to my favorite station even if I'm trying to gun down someone else's car
- Reloading before moving onto the next part of the mission

I always have to have a zero at the end of my amount of cash and ammo. If I don't, I just shoot and spend until I do.

I can't stand the characters wearing the SAME outfit all the time. For Johnny, I deal with it as I don't really like his extra outfit. And I just gave up on that in V, unless you do Trevor first. Everyone else will change by the time he can change clothes if he spawned on a mountain or on the island.

 

 

-I delete emails and text messages because I don't like them clogging things up.

 

I do that. Always have.

In GTA V/Online, I cycle through the weapons on a Buzzard to make sure I've got the one I want equipped (usually homing off). Then a few seconds later I'll cycle back and forth a little until I'm back on it again, just to make sure I'm still on it.

 

It's little things like that. They nearly always start having some kind of purpose, but then it just ends up a habit.

I usually do missions whenever the game time is set to daytime, because why would you want to knock on someone's door at 3 in the morning?

- Have to fly a plane perfectly in GTA games, mostly because I'm hoping to be a pilot, so I taxi to the runway, sit for a minute (or sometimes go for takeoff right away) and make sure the wheels go up after takeoff. I make flying to Sandy Shores or McKenzie and sometimes Fort Zancudo a route and therefore make it a long enough flight with a proper descent and approach to the airport. Also do this in GTA: San Andreas. 

- Following that, I also try and get gold medals in all flight school missions both in single player (San Andreas and GTA V) and online.

- If my car gets damaged, I immediately get it repaired or steal another one.

- I like having my money rounded off to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, etc although at times this has been impossible. 

- When fighting in GTA IV, I like areas where I can push people causing them to fall a great height i:e Burgershot at the Broker-Dukes Expressway 

- When fighting in GTA V, I have to use the pratfalling feature to defeat pedestrians. Makes the fight longer and much more fun especially if you fly into them and you both fall a great height. Makes it look like something out of WWE. 

- I use to always do one character set of missions before moving on to another characters. Now I've varied it and it's a lot more fun but I always did it from GTA III's release until about 2 or 3 years ago.

 

Will  edit this post if I think of anymore.

Whenever I look up and see that my ammo count is an odd number, I shoot someone so it goes even.

I like to have a full health and armor at all times

I like to have my vehicles in mint condition (I'd even often repair motorcycles after a crash in 3D games,despite the damage being invisible on them)

I always try to get 100% or Gold medals in all missions whenever possible. Did it with all schools in San Andreas (driving, flying, bike and boat), on the entire TBoGT and in some parts of V. And screw the Barrel Roll part on the Driving School, screw that part in particular.

- When it's raining, I don't walk outside and stay in my car or house.
 
- When I'm on the highway, I'm rolling at normal speed.
 
- When my car get dirty, I go in a carwash.
 
- If I see a cop or a security man while I'm driving, I beep him.

  • If I steal a cop car with no wanted level I instinctively start driving like a cop (too much LSPDFR).
  • I go back in my garage to repair my car if it's immediately scratched after I exit
  • My garage is sorted by type, then color
  • I always check for dubsta2s around 10:00-16:00 and sentinels around 21:00-04:00
  • I don't feel right w/out full snacks and armor

Whenever I start a new game for any GTA game, I always find ways to make some easy cash right after the first mission (taxi side-missions in the 3D games and CTW, taking money from cash registers in IV, etc.)

When I pass a mission that triggers unique phone calls after it's passed, I always wait for them to happen before saving the game.
When I'm driving to a mission, I always release all buttons to let the car approach the marker by inertia, so I won't accidentally mess up the following cutscene sequence. Speaking of, I never skip the cutscenes because I'm afraid that doing so can break some scripts and cause bugs.
P.S. I remember there was a similar thread some time ago, but maybe its just another weird thing they call deja-vu.

No I think you're right, I've got a fuzzy memory too - but I think it was in the online section, so, should be good to keep this up.

I have a one and a half years old save I did after completing Dead Man Walking and everytime I try to continue with the storyline, I just keep going back because I always feel like I did something wrong during Did Somebody Say Yoga, like releasing the triggers during yoga before Amanda or Fabien remind me to exhale, or crashing into the ground during the bad trip before the song ends.

I too obsess about having my car totally damage free.

 

I also have a bizarre habit of honking the horn in time to the music if it is one of my favourite tracks.....!

Ah...! You play like me except for emails and texts. 

 

But yeah, for realism, I try change clothes frequently, usually every session.

Man this is what I love about GTA. I loved it in SA, scrounging for a few dollars for the first while as a nobody, trying to survive and save bullets and cash lol

I can't feel I've truly completed a GTA-game unless I've done literally everything:

 

-driven all vehicles

-picked up all weapon spawns at least once

-maxed out all stats (criminal rating, pilot rank etc)

 

So you can guess now that I'm playing all GTAs from the beginning it will take me quite a while to move on to next game..  :lol:  (can't wait for Vice City and maxing pilot rank with the Skimmer..)

Let's see .... many of the things I do have already been named by many of you. What I remember for the moment:
 
- I always save the game twice in the same place, just to be sure.
- I don't like to kill some NPC without any reason.
- I like to park my vehicles in the correct way, cars, helicopters, planes ... I just can not stand if they are not well parked.
- After completing a mission, I wait some time before starting another one, I don't like start another mission automatically after the previous one.
- I always turn off the radio every time I start a mission.

I do that sometimes too. It's even better when the horn is the same note as in the song, like the chorus in Danger Zone. So satisfying.

Let's see... some of my habits already mentioned

  • Always, park cars properly. For this reason i'm pissed at 3D era road design that doesn't have parking space
  • Broken doors, windows, etc. Those sh*tty driving AI that bump my ride will taste headshot on their seat
  • Wait for minute clock goes to 0, 15, 30, 45 to before doing anything (saving, mission, etc.)
  • Always have either full health or armor

Starting from VC, where there is enough garage room for this, I always try to collect all the law enforcement vehicles - or at least FBI and military. It even extends to Saints Row games.

Here's my list of habits and keks:

 

- I hate crashing into NPC's. I like my vehicles 100% intact. One scratch and it's enough to drive me mad.

- I rarely kill NPC's, but I do seek revenge if they happen hit my vehicle.

- I try to take-off planes as realistically as possible. Landing can be included in that too.

- I tend to keep a single nice outfit for the entire gameplay (For example I hate Niko's starter clothes, makes him look like a homeless dude.)

- I always handbrake when driving motorcycles in GTA San Andreas. Sharp 90º turns for the win.

- I can't race without using racing lanes.

- I spam the jump button whenever I have to climb a wall, no matter the game. SPACE SPACE SPACE...

- I always switch to my favorite radio, I can't stand music that isn't my taste. Ruins the experience.
