Yeah if you dont want it dont use it its not that 1 people that is important like bush say: I HATE CARS WE SHOULD ALL GO WITH THE TRAIN. That this then happen some poeple hate it some people like it so dont whine.
One day I will get some programmers together and have them make a game so realistic, and so challenging, that everyone who keeps asking for gas in their cars, no respawns, and traffic violations, like speeding, using the wrong lane, or failure to stop and stop sign/red light will regret ever asking for these things when they finally realize that such novelties as being realisitc can hinder the excitment and fun of a game. I for one would hate to play a GTA/ SR game were I sepnd most of my time being pulled over by the cops because I could maintain the proper speed because I'm using a trigger/button, instead of a gas peddle.
Games are design to be enjoyable. The more enjoyable a game is, the longer a person will play it, and the more likely they are to buy the next version. Cause a player to be fustrated with the game and they will put it down, never play it again, and tell all their friends about the bad experience. Being realistic and being fun, don't always go hand in hand. And sometimes the non-realisticness of some experiences is what captivates us.
So should planes be in SR2? Yes. Will they be usefull? Maybe, but that isn't going to stop people from finding strange and entertaining ways of using them. Is more always better? In the gaming world, especially free roamers like GTA/SR, that can be a qualified yes, because it opens up more, and interesting ways to play. More things to do, the longer you play. The longer you play, the more likely you will want to get the next one, with new, and more interesting things then the previous.

^ great post my friends are always saying that and i always say it will suck people play games like this (gta style) to do crazy stuff. If it had all the rules that applie to real life you wouldnt be allowed to customize cars cause it would make most of them not street legal. You wouldn't be allowed to steal cars so youd be screwed if your car blew up. driving would be boring as hell having to go slow make shure you stay in your lane all that crap. it would take way too much time and money to make it for it just to be a failure
