Comment: Denser traffic? (Score 1) 133

While some of the proposed changes (e.g., better draw distance, more detail, etc.) aim to make the game better on modern hardware, it seems like adding things like "denser traffic" would have the effect of changing the gameplay itself. While denser traffic would certainly make the game's Southern California setting a little bit more realistic, I'm not sure that it would make the game more enjoyable. In particular, it seems like a change of this nature could make some of the game's high-speed chase missions and side events into a big pain in the ass.

The fact that you can do something doesn't necessarily mean that you should.

If you are not shooting at the person, you are spraying bullets somewhere else. And weren't 2 kids there, also? So just fire off some shots in some direction so you can clip a neighbor, someone walking by, a passing car, have a ricochete and hit someone in the house. OK, it you are in the middle of the a forest, ocean or desert, feel free to put a shot into the ground, otherwise you are being reckless and a danger to others. And don't give me any bull about "putting a shot somewhere safe." The only safe place safe to discharge a weapon with other people around is a controlled firing range, and then only once you have passed a safety course.

This isn't a movie, kid.

Dan: What’s the problem?
Mallory: During your broadcast on September 5th, you sang Happy Birthday to your partner, Casey McCall.
Dan: Yeah, but I can explain that. Wait, it was his birthday. Why do I have to explain that?
Mallory: You sang Happy Birthday on the air.

Mallory: Listen, I think it’s sweet that you and your partner sing to each other on television. Others may think that it’s vaguely gay, but I disagree.
Dan: Thank you.
Mallory: Nonetheless, you can’t do it anymore.
Dan: Why not?
Mallory: It’s against the law?
Dan: It’s against the law to be vaguely gay?
Mallory: It’s against the law to sing Happy Birthday on television.
Dan: Why?
Mallory: It's owned by the representatives of Mildred and Patty Hill.
Dan: It took two people to write that song?
