    I just played again for about 40 minutes and I took over 3 purple territories with ease. Once you figure out the system to it, it becomes pretty easy. I don’t really understand my character’s motivation for senselessly killing people from other neighborhoods. I understand they are rival gangs but how does this help him save his sister and neighborhood? Forcing the player to take over so many territories one after the other is really annoying. Also, I’ve noticed that the pedestrians are all psychopathic murderers. Nearly all of them are carrying guns in this riot situation and they open fire randomly on other pedestrians. Other people are looting, carrying T.V.’s down the street to no destination in particular. The characters have very little depth but there is a pretty large variety of characters.

    I just got done playing for about 30 minutes and this time I took over 2 purple territories and 1 yellow territory. In doing so I’ve noticed the character interaction mainly consists of either shooting each other, running away or crouching down to avoid being shot. Especially in this riot situation of the game all interaction is fueled by gunfire or being run over by a car. The coolest character interaction I noticed this time is that after about 10 people get killed by a car exploding an ambulance shows up and revives them all, but when the ambulance was leaving it ran over the sidewalk and ran over and killed three of the people they had just saved. This sort of negates any feeling that the paramedics may actually care about saving lives, they are just computer algorithms meant to revive and leave as quickly as possible.

    I played the game today for about an hour and the point I'm at in the game now is rather annoying. I had stopped playing the game for probably about 6 months and now I remember why. Where I'm at in the game the entire city is in a riot and even walking around is extremely dangerous. Every car you inadvertantly run into immediately catches on fire and explodes killing everyone in the vicinity and often times giving you a wanted star. Also, almost every other pedestrian is a psycho murderer and open fire on strangers without warning, including you. So when you defend yourself you wind up with some wanted stars.

    The problem is that the only way to progress the game past this constant riot is to take over more gang territories around Los Santos. This is hard enough to do without getting too much police attention when there is no riot, but during the riot it becomes quite trying.

    So today I managed to take over 4 gang territories of the purple gang. It took a while and I died alot. I used to care about never dying because you lose all your weapons, but its so much easier to just pick up weapons as you go and keep playing. So I just kept going after getting killed or busted and it made taking over the territories much easier.
