... In GTA4 I used to stroll the streets killing anything that moved until the cops turned up, then killed as many of them as I could before leading a city wide car chase with heaps of shots exchanged to see how long I could last, and how high I could get the body count.
Anyway, I'm all grown up and responsible now... yeah. So indiscriminate gun massacres leave me feeling a little cold and irresponsible.
So now I just punch the lights out of people - NOT UNPROVOKED I might responsibly add.
One of the funniest tips I read on here was how if you hit right on the DPAD while walking (or is it left? anyway try it), you'll exchange pleasantries with the nearest pedestrian, some pleasant, some not so.
So I stand on a street corner (mostly as Frank as he has the best "pleasantries") and give plenty of lip to passing pedestrians and drivers. Anyone wishing me a pleasant day goes on their way, unless I can provoke them into an unpleasant response. The back-chatters, well I just keep giving them lip until they either decide to run or put up or shut up (I NEVER start the fight). Then it's on and let me tell you Frank and co can dance (particularly if you use X - the counter-punch).
NOTE - you'll hear some of the funniest dialogue exchanges in the game while you're baiting for a fight.
And then just punch on. Sometimes more than one will join in - take him out too. Then turn on the cars and kick the crap out of them. Eventually you'll get a star or two so run and hide until you can return and continue dishing out street justice. Of course if it escalates too far and shooting starts - well then at least it's not an indiscriminate gun massacre is it - those fools asked for it.
