does anybody else just drive around in gta3 and pretend you're going to work or going somewhere to eat it actually makes the game feel a bit bigger and you can look at all the signs and buildings i mean like playing the game without killing people or stealing cars just taking car from your garage and driving it around it's actually pretty fun

No, but I have driven as slow as the other drivers and obeyed all stoplights when going at beating it again. I got up to about Joey's missions, then couldn't handle it anymore.

Yeah, same. It's actually quite fun for a while.

I always try to drive on the right side of the rode when playing. It makes it feel more realistic.

Doing this in SA is awesome.
For example you live in Angle pine and you drive to work in San Fierro as a airplane pilot. After you go to Las venturas, the los santos and back to san feirro airport.
Your day is over.

yeah, ive done this alittle on all the 3d gta's.

I don't pretend I'm going to work. I just try to be realistic (not with speed, of course) when on my way somewhere.

So how do you try to act realistic? By stopping on red? laugh.gif

It is pretty hard to do as you don't have gears and really it is all or nothing, with the cars.

i dont preted or anything but on all the gta's ive tried to go as fast as traffic and follow the street lights and rules.
coreyko_2003
I do it every now and again. Not particularly on GTA 3 but VC and SA I'll drive safe and do things as I should from time to time.

Jeez, I tried observing traffic regulations but got pissed at second street lights. I also never really follow the paved road, just cut corners whenever possible, drive on grass and over people, otherwise it's no fun to me wink.gif

As sad as it may sound, I know exactly what you're talking about. Just 20 minutes ago I was shifting trailers from a Los Santos lay-by to San Fierro docks and then further on to Las Venturas Airport with a "Tanker" truck, stopping at diners on the way to take a break, eat up and even fuel up!

Great way to pass time

Hey, those ideas sound pretty fun. The whole idea of going to work and stuff. I'll try being a hitman in SA and going to kill ppl and raiding police stations for dildos and shit. Thanxs for the ideas.
The Porscheofile
loll and thats anywhere different from being a no good gangbanger and killing ppl and raiding cops stations? or yeh, its gov't sanctioned depending on who ur killing, haha. anyway, i cant do what y'all are talking about, unless im in a lowrider, at night, in the grove. then i set up cine'cam and lowrider to radio LS folowing traffic lights so as not to destroy my nice svanna *yes they are me single fav lowriders, impalas rule*

Pretty much impossible on SA highways, when your in one lane and overtaking another car or what ever they swerve into your lane without warning and hit your car which REALLY pisses me off.

Kid_Notorious

DonLeone
I follow the traffic from time to time, stopping at diners etc.. Maybe takes some grove street gangsters on the ride.
SKARFACE
I've done it too lol
I Made Your Mom In GMod
I've done pretty much everything described in this topic at one point or another. It helps add another few weeks onto the lifespan of the game. And when done correctly, can be pretty fun. biggrin.gif
SKARFACE
Yeah
