Single player... I don't have much time for game playing, thus I am still just exploring and haven't done many of the missions. I'm just exploring around as Franklin while I leave Michael doing whatever he does while I'm Franklin (usually I check and he is sitting in his car somewhere.)
So, question about the safehouse garage. Franklin lives in a dump with his Aunt so he had the funds to pay a car payment on a brand new Dodge Charger (ugly as it is, especially in white.) Found out that there is a Toyota Hilux up in the hills! Hunted that down for Franklin and briefly saw there was rusty beat up ones and clean ones with bull bars and whatnot. Couldn't find a rusty one after first seeing it, so grabbed a clean one. Then upon hunting down a mountain bike to toss in the back, the parking lot near the cable car was full of the non-modded trucks.
So, now Franklin has a beat up old Toyota truck in his garage. How weird is it that he leaves a beat up old truck in the garage while his brand new $30,000 Dodge Charger sits out in the driveway in the ghetto? What happens if I switch it and put the Toyota out in the driveway and the Charger in the garage? I explore the map in the Toyota, but not wanting to lose and have to go find another Toy, I take the Charger when I go on a mission. Will I lose the Toy if I leave it in the driveway and put the Charger in the garage?
Wondering how you all drove around exploring the map, though I imagine most of you are just playing multiplayer now. Did you follow traffic laws and drive around slow while checking out the scenery? I'll give Michael the fast cars since he is rich, while I leave Franklin with the slow unmodified Toyota truck for map exploring. I'm loving just driving around, stopping at the lights in the city (though they are a bit long sometimes, perhaps that is realistic, I don't live anywhere near a big metropolis) while I look around at the buildings and listen to the people. When I get out on the freeways, I'm driving behind all the other cars slowly while checking out the views.
Conversely, my kids go for the fastest cars and drive around at top speed wrecking havoc all over the city. How did you all explore the map?
Also, I'm terrible at remembering the streets and the map, I couldn't do it with IV and just drive around knowing where I needed to go. Thus, this is one reason I am driving around as I would in real traffic and checking out all the visuals, so I can learn the map (IV was too dark and hard to see and always seemed to be night time, thus I never learned much of the street map.) Do you guys who probably play the games for longer durations than I do learn the map just from rushing around the game play or do you intentionally try to learn the map exploring around?
Curios about other folks and stats on the Rockstar Social club, so feel free to add my name, mrodgers83 there. I have no friends on the social club as I don't know any real people in real life who play these games.
