What if you can get a credit card to buy stuff then if you dont pay back in a certain period of time, they take away your safe house of someting or the gang members come and attack you like in san andreas if you fell into casino debt. What do you guys think?

Yeah, and maybe they can spontaneously combust, meaning you have no access to your monies and nobody uses the ATM machines in GTA anyway.

 

Then you'd have to save your game at a motel by offering the motel clerk 15 dollars and a hell of a nice watch. Not a smelly casio though.

I'm assuming you don't really know how a credit card works...

 

Return of gambling debt ala GTA SA would be fun though. Loves losing my money on a saved game just to fight off attacks.

Loan sharks would be cool, especially if money is hard to come by and you become desperate. Not paying them back could trigger side missions where you have to get rid of the sharks like the first GTA IV missions. If you do it too much, sharks will make you pay back more money and eventually refuse to lend money to you (just to balance it out, since later in the game it will be too easy to kill a few gang thugs).

It's time to start paying! Just don't lose.

Credit cards specifically would be pretty useless. I'm sure there will be plenty of cracks about them in the game, but as a gameplay mechanic, they don't do anything. You already shop like you are using plastic. It just doesn't let you go over the limit.

 

Having loan sharks, on the other hand, can really work. That would really allow the situations like these described in OP, with mobsters coming after you for failing to pay up. But in order for any of this to matter, they need to make sure the money is actually balanced, and it never has been in GTA.

 

Edit: Fixed a typo. He, he. "Lawn sharks".

Prior to filing a bug against any of my code, please consider this response to common concerns.

Credit cards? Even if I make only $300 per mission, I'd still be set enough to not need one of those damn things. Unless rockstar implements god damn gas, heating, electrical, and plumbing bills into the game. Which they won't, because they know those would be annoying as f*ck.
