This game is so stupidly violent. Discuss.

So the camera in this game despises me, which does not bode well for me absolute lack of skill. I died at least seven times in one of the Brotherhood Stronghold missions.

I got so frustrated that I just got the Rocket Launcher out and started going ballistic. It worked, too.

Did you do that Ronin mission with the motorcycle gunfight yet? Makes everything else look like cake.

It was one of the earlier Ronin missions, right?

Around midway through I think. It's been a while.

I'm most certain I did it, unless there's another motorcycle gunfight somewhere down the line. It was so hard, yet so fun.

I dunno about the fun part, but I was on the PC version so it was a little choppier than what you played.

The driving controls are fine on the PS3 version; it's the shooting that gives me grief.

I never had trouble with either until I had to do both at once while being shot at and run down by two other cars. I think eventually I just got off the motorcycle ran up to the guy and emptied like 3 uzi clips into him before he could get up enough speed to drive away.

The fun never stops in this game. I would often just find a few mates, blow everything up until I had 5 stars, steal a car and flee, while hordes of FBI and assault helicopters chased me down. All to a light-hearted piano tune and the rhythmic thud of civilians on my car hood.
 

Although the helicopters mounted gun was absolutely useless.

Finally finished the game. I know this is whingy (especially how much I was screaming while actually playing the mission), but I hated the second part of the final mission; seriously, fuck helicopters.
