being poor and broke is more fun than having millions of dollars

and it feels good to give some of your hard-earned money to some friends who just started playing. I've been always broke since day 1, just managed to earn money through missions with the help of high-level crew mates. still aiming to get one of those super cars, just one.

You are of course speaking from experience from both sides, not just the poor side? Or am I reading bias with underlying jealousy?

I saved for the Entity and the Z Type, it feels more special earning it, although it will be a lot harder from here on out. At least I'm comfortable, just over a mil., today I watched my bank increase $90K in the old days it would have been around $250K.

You're wrong

I'm sitting on about 1.28 million right now, earned legit (with a little help from the Stimulus) and I can honestly say I don't want to be poor in this game ever again. I've managed to earn, in total, 7.83 million dollars, nearly all of which has gone to buying and upgrading cars, purchasing ammo and services, and sharing some with my friends. I understand TC's online lifestyle, but I'd never go that way.

We all started out poor in this game.

So dont talk on my behalf and say being poor is fun.

Being rich and not having to worry about money for ammo, repairs, deaths, gives me more fun because it enables me to do whatever i want in this game.

Bottom line is, I dont give a crap about money in this game anymore because im rich.
But money lets me do whatever i want and i have purchased everything i wanted.

You dont give a crap about money either because you're poor and its fun for you.
But you haven't experienced half the things i have done, and you dont have half the things i have.

But its good you have fun being poor. Good boy.

My question to you is, if you have never experienced being can you say its fun to be poor?
You need to experience both sides of the spectrum before you can make a valid judgement on what is more fun for you.

Being poor is great. It gives you goals and makes accomplishments feel more rewarding. I never have more than 50k in my bank.
