I prefer to get a big sturdy vehicle and let the grill do all the work.
Patriots are ideal.

I am a bike kinda person, I like the cop motorbike in San Andreas, just need myself an SMG and I'm happy out.

Playing GTA 3 for the first time and finding the Banshee in the showroom, slowly manouvering it out the window, then putting the shoe down and ploughing into the carpack exit.

What I used to do in GTA VC/SA on Pc was block the road with an 18-wheeler or similar, let traffic build up and use an RPG from a building to cause a chain reaction of explosions.

Bliss.

Driving up on the footpath always done the job for me...

I remember playing GTA IV and I started my own wee rampage in Broker using the hospital as my strong hold; pure mayhem! I managed to hold out for some time in between 2 - 3 hours, packed out with ammo and all sorts of weapons at my disposal. One of the highlights of my frenzy was firing an RPG from inside the hospital doors and hitting the underside of a cop car, flipping it high up in the air, and it coming down and crushing a NOOSE officer whilst he was firing his machine gun.

THAT is why video games are awesome!

Countless days, probably even weeks were spent in GTA3 on the top floor of the car park in the middle of Staunton Island, using cheats for ammo and health, killing everything that moved for about an hour... then getting in either a Banshee or a Stinger, driving off the roof of the car park and seeing how long I could last against the army. Brilliant. For sheer dumb gaming fun, nothing has beaten it yet.

There was a cool place just off Ganton in GTASA, you might remember it as the place where you pick up Sweet and his girlfriend when some rival Grove Families go mental. Twas two apartment complexes with balconies across from each other. Camping out there with loads of ammo and health cheats for about 2 hours was some serious craic.

GTAIV has Happiness Island, but that gets tedious after a while, and the only highlights are when the NOOSE guys survive helicopter crashes and come from behind you inside the statue.

I also remember in GTA (the original) up at the very top left of the map, there was a HUGE stretch of footpath that I would just hop into a car and floor it, racking up score in no time.

1) Mug someone for their gun.

2) Go into the hospital.

3) Shoot people.

4) Shoot the cops.

5) Take their weapons.

6) Shoot the SWAT team.

7) Eventually die.

8) Respawn at the hospital.

Walk back inside, repeat steps 3 to 8 until I have a good bit of ammo and guns.

Then leave and go on various missions that were nice and easy when I had a shotgun...

That's a lot of trouble to go to for a shotgun.

I haven't played GTA IV for a while now, but the police station up the street from Niko's 1st "residence" would usually have a car parked in front.

You couldn't break into it there & then without alerting the cops, so I used to use another car to push it down the street (they didn't mind that for some reason), presumably out of their view, break in & you'd have your shotgun. Then repeat as required ...

Shotgun? Hell no. I'd do that for the (M4A1) "Carbine Rifle" that I'd get from the SWAT team that would eventually pop in
