Oh, jesus, here we go again. I should've known the unnecessary realism crowd wouldn't give up after fuel and traffic law requests. GTA online actually has this, and it's bullsh*t. Granted, I haven't played a lot of GTA online because I tried it early on and didn't enjoy it much, tried it again on PS4 using a bit of a PSN trial, didn't like it much then either. Because they have shark cards, which I didn't buy, but it essentially meant they were charging fractions of real money for virtual house bills.
To put it simply, this would be bullsh*t. It's bad enough we have to deal with these in real life, why the f*ck would we want them in a video game? And no, realism is not a good enough answer, there has to be a better reason than "Realism". Because, as far as I can tell, it wouldn't improve the game in any way. I can't believe I'm about to say this, but at least fuel and traffic laws, for all the annoyance they would add to the game, would at least have the excuse of a bit of added tension and maybe a bit of stealth because as a criminal, you'd drive slowly to avoid wanted levels. I still wouldn't want either of these within 5 miles of a GTA game, but they have better excuses than this.
So, what, we're just gonna lose money to virtual bills every month and that's it? That's the whole idea? Forgive me for the incivility, but that's complete crap. It's not fun in any way. It's got no good reason to be there besides "realism". I want more ways to spend money too, but this is the absolute wrong thing.
