Third 30 minutes
After playing some of the missions and the storyline advancing slowly I decided to drive around the city. Going against what would be norm in society i needed a car and i took one. I got in front of a car and yanked the person out of the car. To get the full experience of the society that is an exaggerated picture of our reality you have to listen to the radio. There is so many things that unlike regular society could never be said on over the air radio as they are not politicaly correct. While driving you get to decide, will you follow traffic lights or will you disregard them. Most people would decide to diregard because there is no reprocussion. That does not just apply for driving, many will shoot others and kill them if an officer is not around. In this case the character, CJ,does not have the choice the people that control him, us, are making the decision not to follow norms and laws that we know exist. In the game we believe there are no rules but passing the mission. This then leads us to be completely involved in this alternate life that we have as this character, we have to eat for him, get fit, and in some cases kill others.
