GTA 5 Essentials #2: Money, Property, and Influence

VideoGamer: "You're going to make a lot of money in GTA 5. The thing is, what are you going to be able to do with it? Here's what GTA 4 got wrong, and what GTA 5 needs to get right." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeah the economy has been lacking in the last few gta's. Hoping money will have realitivity this time around. Stock market investments with the ability to own property sounds expensive. Me likey.

I will NOT buy this for current gen.

Give me a modded, heavily upgraded GTA V next fall and I'll gladly shell out $60.

Because you're entitled to a "Modded, Heavily upgraded" version of GTA V for the same price everyone else is paying this generation.

lol what a brilliant reply.

I guess Watch Dogs should just be the exact same across all platforms/generations?

I guess AC4 too?

And Battlefield 4?

I'd prefer this on next gen, but there's no way I can wait that long. It still looks amazing for the hardware it on. The PS3 ersion anyone, since that the ersion that was running in the trailer.

Day one for me. Right in the middle on my trimester though :(

Kudos to Steven Burns (VGSteve) for a well written article. Injecting thought into what he wrote and stitching together elements using critical thinking.

It is sadly common now for articles to simply be recycled... copy and pasted PR pieces for the masses.

Refreshing to read something unique for once. The points he made were valid, money could become a character in GTA V - or a persona of each of the 3 characters considering they all have unique bank accounts.

Totally agree with the need for a system alike to the one in GTA2. Gangs own a neighborhood, and if you've done a lot of work for a rival gang, walking through it should cause some havoc.

And if you've helped a gang they should help you out as well (cheaper services in their hood, cars and weapons you can use, a little help in case of unwanted police attention, ...).

That way missions earn you more than progress in the story or money, they'd have an actual effect on the world. The world should behave differently towards you because of what you have (not) done.

I love being able to invest money in games to get a return. I usually like to strictly inest early in the game instead of buying any liabilities (something that doesn't make me money like weapons or car upgrades). The missions are a little harder, but once I get to mid game I'm super rich and can buy anything and am still making more money then I'm spending. I love it!
