Oh, Im down with $30, I own GTA3 and GTA:VC for the PC, so I know they are great. But I always feel the need to be a complete cheap-ass when it comes to purchasing stuff. Buying the game for as little as possible is a mini-game all by itself.
Ha! I completely agree. Right now I'm wrestling with trudging along, searching for the $20 power-up, or just giving in and hastily using the damn cheat-code.
So far, my decision has been tempered by the fact that, like a Maxis game, using the cheat-code too much incurs a natural disaster - the wrath of my wife.
