| The issue is of accoutability is another huge portion of the game. Because this was my first time playing, I really wasn't any good, and only accomplished a couple missions before I got frustrated. So, I decided to just drive around at some point, and see what could happen. One of the things I did first was steal a car. I chose the worst one, so as I struggled to steer it, I kept hitting people, crashing into cars and other objects, and causing massive accidents. Now even though it's a game, I was still surprised as to how much destruction and death I could cause before I even got one police star. I guess I was lucky because I avoided cops, but I probably killed a handful of people, ruined many stop lights, and wrecked tons of cars. I still had no cops chasing me. In real life, obviously someone on this sort of a rampage would be all over the news, and the cops would be on it immediately. Yet in the game, it seems like it's normal. When brutally crush someone's car, all they can scream out is "What are you doing?". It's like the city is so dulled to these situations, and almost expects it to happen. Just as you drive through a neighborhood of enemies, you get casually shot at, or ran over (in my case). It seems like you can get away with a lot more in the game, showing the lower moral standards of the individuals/society in the game.
