Next Grand Theft Auto to reward good behaviour?
But more seductive, the Dark Side is
A videogame survey’s hinted that Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar could be considering a “karma system” for the videogame’s next instalment.
More bad deeds than good could see the storyline change accordingly
Blogger Da Ill One recently took part in an online survey about videogame features and stumbled across a question asking for his opinion of a “good vs. evil actions” system in the GTA series.
The question said the karma function would see gamers able to choose their overall path by doing good or bad actions, with your chosen deeds having a “cumulative impact on how the game unfolds”.
Rockstar would probably have to do a fair bit of re-coding so players could choose a ‘good’ route, because we don’t remember options to help old ladies across the road or to give Liberty City’s homeless your spare change.
The question asked participants to rate the idea of a karma system as either a “Big improvement”, “Minor improvement”, “Neither better nor worse”, “Slightly worse” or “A lot worse”.
What’s your opinion? ®
You help a granny across the road and then shoot her in the face?
Does the good dead even out the bad one? Lol
Believe it or not...
...there is actually an option in GTA4 to give buskers (usually on the underground metro stations playing the sax) your spare change!
Of course, it'll probably be frowned upon in the new game if you then beat them to death with a baseball bat. Unless that's classed as cleaning up the streets?
a long way to go
traffic rules are non existant (in a driving game?) run as many reds lights as you like... drive on the sidewalk or up one way streets without risk of a star..
cops shoot to kill the unarmed after a 1 star offence... (Running from an officer should up wanted from a 1 to a 2) cops should only use firearms if you pull a gun.
