I start out with the plan of beating missions, then I find myself destroying as much as possible to see how long I can avoid the police and when I am caught, I lose interest in the game and dont play for a week.
The lose interest and don't play for a week part got me.

Any gaming monitor suggestions? I currently have a 1440P 27" 60hz monitor. I was thinking an ultrawide curved monitor would be cool for this game, but those arent 4K. I'm sure my wife will veto anything crazy expensive, but I am not sure what I should be looking for.

With the way it loads terrain, you either always have to be online or you can download certain areas of the world and fly in those places. The map in the game is Bing Maps, to download the entire world, you'd need at least 2 petabytes (2000 terabytes) of storage.
Yeah for a simulation game like this, the online portion actually makes sense.

Definitely excited to see this one come out. Me getting it will depend on if I get some kind of flight setup probably. At the very least a joystick or something I suppose.

Late 2020 and 2021 might be the best time for gaming in a while, hardware and software wise. We're getting new consoles that don't suck, new graphics cards and processors that are, allegedly, a big leap over what we have currently, and shiny new games that take advantage of all of that.

Yes, I can’t wait to see what they do with Skyrim and GTA 5 in 2020.
