Personally, I hope there will be an army base in this one like there is in Vice. Except I hope its outside of Las Ventura and is a knock off of Area 51

I hope you can rob any home you want, and not waht the game sets for you. If that's the case, I'll get my gang members, and go in there like a motherfucking snake, silent, stab the wife, husband, daughter, son, and even the fucking dog. Throw them motherfucker's in the basement, and start pimping the place out! Yeah bitch! Game of the year!

when references...I hope they mean 'Maurice Chaves' will be mentioned. Or more so, I hope he hosts that VCPR thing here again or maybe it will be called 'SAPR' something. The map being bigger than the last game looks promising.

The food thing, well, I just hope the character WILL gain a look when he gets fat or something like that.

I can't really see the 'food eatin, getting fat - exercise to lose weight' concept being implemented. It would just make things a bit slow. Just eating food for stamina might work okay, but the getting fat thing would ruin it in my opinion. Say your in the middle of a huge mission, that you need to complete to progress in the game, but you have to spend ages working off the fat. It would soon lose it's replay value. "Ooh! Look at that mission! I'd love to do that! But...it's really long, so I'd need to stop half way through to eat some stuff, and I might get too fat to finish the mission, requiring me to go work it off, before I can finish the mission...which was timed, and now I failed. Bah"

I'm waiting for some idiot to come along and say "Maybe they should make it you can live in the house after you rob it, and then you have to pay for electricity and stuff. If you don't, you get evicted." Also i echo Kaneanites station, the whole "get fat- work it off" routine sounds crap, who goes to the gym, just to work off fat anyways, it's not like. "Oh i'm crap, i'll go the gym and work it off and then onlt go back when i'm fat." Bah. Too much and there'll be no gang feel to it.

Speaking of gangs i'd like you to be able to work for a gang, lead a gang and your gang members don't just hang around your property, they roam your "territory" too, territory could be marked by the property you own in a certain area.

The idea of the countryside intrigues me too, if it's quiet, it'd be a great place to do a murder. Also do the police just shoot you to death like normal, i know you could get busted but thats only when you're in a car really. Normally they just shoot you until you die, i'd prefer they arrest you like in real life, like, since when did police men shoot you to death?
