    It does matter to buy the expensive properties though. I think it's kind of bogus that Michael has all of the really expensive properties. I have $20-$30 Million for Trevor and Franklin that's useless and I'm trying to save up to $150 million with Michael.

    but if youve finished the game and youre not playing online what does having money do? whoopy you buy property and now what? stare at it? ok so yeah you can make more money but the game is finished so who cares at that point. Im not finished the game, but from what i can see having lots of money is pretty pointless as far as game progression goes.....whether or not i have 100g's or 20+millions when the game is done its all pointless after that point

    Atleast if you play online having money has a point after the game is finished

    I guess I don't consider it finishing the game until all of the properties are bought. I just don't like looking at the $ of a property knowing that I hadn't bought it. And due to all of the extracurricular parts of the game I feel like I can play it until I am able to purchase the final properties.

    well i consider it done when the credits roll. Finished it. It was good.

    oh and i gotta say i was dissapointed with the radio, Maybe i didnt listen to enough stations, but it seemed to offer less music than previous GTA's. I could be wrong. Maybe its cuz there was too many mumbling dumb sounding rappers on it. The classic rap station was alright, im talking the other one. It was shite. I did like a few stations though. Even though i dont know spanish, i liked to roll to their station quite a bit. It was always fun sounding.

    i understand why they picked all those dumb rappers with songs about money... but i would have rather had music i could have enjoyed thats for sure. I like the reggae station, and a few others

    Overall id give this game a 9/10. Its loses its points because i found the whole getting money thing to be completely pointless for offline players. Yeah so ok there was a mission or 2 where you had to buy some shit, but you could easily have done the game on like 10gs and in the end the money is all irrelevant when the game is over. It would have been cooler if there was more businesses to buy and make money off of. ANd then some shit to do with the money. You get money in the game but there isnt much to do with it. Sure i can spend 500gs and buy some business. But i have 30 mill and my 500g's business only pulls in like 7500/wk. You know how many weeks have to go by before you recoup your 500'gs? over a year. And if youre done the game, what is there to do to keep me busy for the coming year to recoup my money? nothing. The money is pointless for offline players.

    but i also do realize im one of the few that dont have their xbox online.

    i don't know why you're concerned with the money aspect. after the storyline, gta is only useful for its true purpose: killing. everything else is irrelevant. that's why i don't understand why this got such good reviews. it's just a killing game with more area to kill people in.

    I agree its a killing/rampaging game and thats its purpose....
    but its not as easy to go around killing and rampaging like older episodes. They took the ease of the cheats out, cops are harder to flee, they also kill you faster and even if youve used the "invincible" cheat they can still headshot you and kill you.. Before it was all a phonenumber that worked everytime, now its a bunch of moves with your controller like street fighter super moves which if you dont get correct its quite annoying. Specially while driving and specially while driving and fleeing cops, cuz half the code routines have you get out of the car if you try it while driving and its quite annoying to go from being chased by cops to stopping your car and getting out and in and out and in as you try to punch in the code for the cheat.

    i think they may have wanted to get away from the reputation of it just being a killing game and thats why they did those changes. I dont care what anyone says, the cheats were/are part of the game. SPECIALLY in previous GTA's.

    I was just concerned over the money aspect because the whole point in the game was waiting for this big ass heist. Then when it goes down, its like wtf do i do now with all this money? all this build up and pay off but it was anticlimactic in that the money means nothing to continuing the game. They could take the money right out and still have a game. You could have gotten paid in candy or food. It would have all been just the same. WOuld have just been cooler if the money had a purpose other than to look cool in your bank account.

    ehh cheats are nice but i never use invincibility anyway because after a while it just gets simple. i just used the guns and shot away until i died. that's more fun. seeing how long you can kill everyone then see if you can escape before you die. i do that now.

    Was franklin modeled after Ice Cube?

    i dont think you can cab it to the military base unfortunately. I just want to steal a jet fighter, I tried 5 x and the closest i got was out of the hangar and picking up speed to take off and a tank blew me up before i could escape.... assholes. I just want to rip around in a jetfighter. But everytime you fail you end up so far away and it takes like 10 mins just to get back there.... and its wack that when i show up to the regular hangars in that small town with micheal or franklin there is no planes. Only if Trevor goes.

    but im just making a wish list and nit picking, its def a great game. I finished it and enjoyed it. But i just went through it straight and did the missions, i didnt get a chance to explore. So now im trying to explore. I want that jet fighter

    i think im gonna try a low altitude sky dive onto the base next because busting down the gate with my rides hasnt worked out so far
