Finally beat GTA:V ("Ending C") and really dug the song choice for the ending credits. It really captured the feeling of the moment. The accomplishments. The pay offs. The betrayals and redemptions along the way.
If there's one thing about this game I really want to tip my hat to, it's the economy. Sounds boring, right? But it's something that SO many other games (including past GTAs) have struggled with; breaking the economy when making money is just too easy.
GTA:V solved this problem by, frankly, having you get screwed time and time again. Missions rarely pay, no matter how trust worthy the mission giver seems. The only way to get a big payout is to take the money yourself (the heists). The sense of desperation not only is conveyed in the story, but is mirrored in the game play; I took on jobs I wouldn't normally because there MIGHT be money, and there rarely was. So when you finally organize a team and do a heist, it's like a huge payday. You start buying up all of the things you thought you'd never afford, and that keeps you going.
