In today’s missions I manage to steal some guns form an old man, do some drive bys, and beat up a convict. The first of those missions I really did not like, I was told to sneak in to an old mans house and steal some of his weapons for my gang to use. It felt wrong, why should I steal this guys weapons he did not do anything to me. I feel like this game doesn’t have any real ethical frame work like some of the other games that we have discussed in class. There are not really any choices one can make in the game. This is kind of disappointing to me.
Since this is probably the last day I will play this game I decided to have some fun after a couple of missions for the story line. I decided to put in some cheat codes and just run around and do as I pleased. I put in the infinite ammo and infinite health cheats and just ran around killing cops and gang members until I reached the full amount of heat. There were helicopters chasing me and police every where. It was pretty fun mainly because I was invincible. I also just played around with some other cheats to play around it was interesting. I felt that the developers wanted to put all of this into the game so players good just mess around and not have to follow the story line.
All in all I did not like the game to much, it was not because of the type of game but more so because of the story. I like games with a good plot and compelling story which this game did not really have. It was fun for short times just messing around but all in all I would not op to play the game again or any of the series.
