The main way to make any money from that is to play the stocks based on Lester's assassination missions.
That's what I'm guessing they put it in for, because you make a ton of money doing it.
I did three of them early on so can't get huge amounts from the remaining two. I'll have to retry it on a new playthrough.
Plus the far greater risk of having a GTA set in London is that Danny Dyer would be in it. And nobody wants that.
Yup, hard to make a game where your only weapons are a cricket bat, a modified starters pistol, a sawn off shotgun with 6 cartridges you got from some dodgy bloke called 'Millsy' and a grenade your found in your grandad's loft. It'd be interesting to see a game in places like Eastern Europe or South American, places like Brazil which has a lot of gang violence. It's part of why I enjoyed Max Payne 3.
Who ever said you can't do heavy artillery in 'ol Blighty?
As much as I enjoyed GTA IV and V, I wouldn't have minded seeing a game more similar in look/humour to Snatch. Imagine the action switching back and forth between Turkish and Tommy, Bullet-Tooth Tony and Cousin Avi, then Sol, Vinnie and Tyrone, and then bringing in the Wild Bunch from RocknRolla. I'd enjoy an open world version of that a lot more than some of the more recent ways the UK is represented as in games, and right now I'm thinking specifically of that London pub fight at the beginning of Uncharted 3, where apparently the only type of Londoner that exists is the flat-cap-indoors wearing kind.
Come on, tell me this wouldn't make for a great GTA:
In fact, GTA VII could come with the words "Guy Ritchies' Grand Theft Auto VII" on the cover and I'd be wetter than January for it.
The game is fun, but the occasional frame drops don't really help. I can't wait for the PC version. Although this game is way better than GTA4. This one was a bit more fun and over the top.
It's strange how forgettable GTAV has been for me since I finished playing it. The world remains one of the best a videogame has created, in my opinion, but everything else strangely doesn't stick in the memory. The missions were fun, but there was no one mission that really blew me away. The character switching worked really well, but as usual the story wasn't up to much. I had a great time, but once it was over, that was that.
This probably sounds like a stupid thing to say. But I'm a big GTA fan, and usually they stay with me a bit longer.
Agreed totally Degolas. I was mucking around in Vice City and San Andreas and playing GTA IV's multiplayer for months and years after release, but GTA V I've barely touched since I finished it back in October. Kind of a let down. :/
For all you folks craving a British GTA, if you have a PS2 you might wanna track down a copy of The Getaway or The Getaway: Black Monday.
IIRC Black Monday didn't get very good reviews, but I had a good time with it nonetheless. There's not much to do in it outside of the story missions, but I really enjoyed just driving around London. :)
