I'd like to see cops that don't forget that you're wanted for murder. It's kind of stupid that you can go on a killing spree, blow up dozens of cars, then run away and about 20 minutes later the stars disappear and you're no longer a fugitive. The crime scenes shouldn't reset and if anything when you come back you see yellow tape, ambulances and a couple cop cars.
IMO once you're a fugitive, it should be like that for the rest of the game. Basically, if you don't want the cops on your tail while you're trying to play, then don't go around killing people for no reason. If having cops chase you is your goal, then go nuts, but from that point forward you're a fugitive. Now this doesn't have to be a main setting of the game, but maybe an "extreme" difficulty setting. I know I'd certainly use this setting because it always bugged me how I could start a shitstorm, run away for a long time, then later have the cops completely forget that I just went on a killing spree about 20 minutes ago. I want cops that never forget that I'm a fugitive. I want to come home to see my house raided and searched. I want to see body bags, ambulances and yellow tape. I want to see cops investigating, dusting for prints and if I didn't wear gloves, then they'll find my prints. Same with wearing a ski mask, if I wear one, then nobody will recognize my face, but if I rob a store without one on then I'll be a wanted criminal. Also, as a fugitive, I want to be able to wear a disguise so that cops don't notice me, but without the disguise I'm more likely to get caught.
This would make the game better because then you could focus more on the missions and try to stay within the law (at least in plain sight) and when I do kill or rob people, I try to be careful to cover it up and run outta there. Then when I do want to just enjoy the game in a major killing spree, it will turn into a neverending heart pounding adreneline race from the police and FBI. Oh yeah and make the cops much more sensitive too. If I run a red light or swerve all over the road like a drunk bastard, they're gonna pull me over to check me out. Yes I'd like speeding tickets to be part of the game too, just for fun. So if you're wanted for murder, you gotta drive carefully. Also, if you're in a stolen vehicle, you get pulled over and an officer runs your plates, you better book it out of there and expect a major police chase.
I'm expecting with a powerful engine from Playstation 3, that a more realistic law enforcement and crime scenes will be possible. I understand why bodies had to disappear and crime scenes reset, to save memory, but with all this bloated memory with the new system they should be able to add this easily.
Finally I think there should be a Tricky mod. You go around dressed up like a clown who flashes children on playgrounds with your flailing pecker and see how long before you're getting chased by teachers, parents and finally the cops.
